2001 was very influential on a lot of sci-fi movies, as indeed was Forbidden Planet before it.

2001 had a stylistic visual approach that was emulated by the likes of ALIEN, Space: 1999, Star Wars, TRON LEGACY....amazing how far its influence reaches, well after its release decades ago.

I also thought the Russian chick that took shelter with Dr. Floyd during the ballute sequence was cute.

Yeah, 2001 is very slow, but still, quite a visual feast. It was seriously panned back in '68, largely because of its ending, but over time has become a major classic.

Also, listen to the original music of 2001 during a couple of sequences.....you'll hear those exact themes in a movie that came much later....ALIENS.

Yeah, Keir aged well in that movie...of course, it was shot only 15 years after 2001. He's definitely aged a lot now, but he is one cool cat. Got to meet him years ago at a sci-fi con. Very down to earth guy.

Some trivia: The Discovery had to be completely rebuilt for 2010. There were no reference materials to go by either. They were all destroyed after the 2001 movie, for fear that someone else might use the plans to build a similar ship for their sci-fi movies. When the Discovery was reconstructed, they had only one source to turn to....the movie itself.

I never thought of that until it was mentioned there, but thinking about it, yeah.............that tracks. If I recall Tron: Legacy then I guess that also does track too. But I'm not a fan of Tron: Legacy so it's only a vague recollection from watching the Blu-ray on rental.

I also got a 2001 vibe out of the vault medical room Pete Postlethwaite was in at the end of Inception as well.

It's so true...that's what's so amazing...I thought 2001 was a late 70's film because people said it influenced The Motion Picture...but this film came out two years AFTER Star Trek aired on TV for the first time!!!!

LOOK at the two...they don't look like they are any where CLOSE tot he same time period.

I've seen...and READ both...
I was more impressed with the books than the videos but 2010 was much closer to it's book...Both...were more profound than anything I've seen on screen for Star Trek....

Of course they don't.................Star Trek didn't have a $10.5 million budget per episode in 1967/68.

It probably didn't even have anywhere near that for even an entire season.

Yeah, 2001 Clarke wrote after his collaboration with Kubrick on the movie. If I remember right he did change quite a bit, for instance they went to Saturn instead of Jupiter. Can't remember if it was still Saturn in the book 2010 though. I've gotta read those again. It's been awhile. 2061 and 3001 are interesting too but I didn't really like the direction Clarke took the whole concept after 2010.

Yeah and the actor Gary Lockwood was working on both 2001 and the Star Trek pilot nearly simultaneously. 2001 started shooting back in 1966, maybe '65, can't remember.

I just watched 2001 again on Netflix today. It's one of my favorite movies. It's too bad Netflix doesn't have Forbidden Planet on demand yet. But I can watch it on DVD.

Two science fiction greats.
I've also been considering getting Metropolis (I think that's what it's called)....the 1920's black and white silent sci-fi film.

I don't remember Saturn in the Book but Jupiter.
