About this movie

Stanley Kubrick redefined the limits of filmmaking in his classic science fiction masterpiece, a contemplation on the nature of humanity, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Stone Age Earth: In the presence of a mysterious black obelisk, pre-humans discover the use of tools--and weapons--violently taking first steps toward intelligence. 1999: On Earth's moon astronauts uncover another mysterious black obelisk. 2001: Between Earth and Jupiter, the spacecraft's intelligent computer makes a mistake that kills most of the human crew--then continues to kill to hide its error. Beyond Time: The sole survivor of the journey to Jupiter ascends to the next level of humanity.

I saw this movie in the 1980s when I was young it blew my mind then and still does now!! This film is a classic! The special effects still hold up today for a film that came out in 1968, this film may not "WOW" a modern audience use to fast pace stuff, back then films took their time to tell a story , I'll sum it up by saying I recommend this movie.

Watching this movie was like having someone slowly peel off all my finger nails simultaneously... but I didn't resist because somehow I thought it would be worth it in the end... and then they poored salt in the wounds and mashed the finger nails back down... Simply torturous...

Sounds effects honestly ruined it for me. Had to fast forward through several parts. There's also several shots just there to fill time that could've been used to deepen the narrative. As a scifi fan I was pretty disappointed.
