2001 A Space Odyssey

I watched this film again – the first time in many years – having just found it on DVD.

It is still one of the best science fiction films ever made. A mastery of understated special effects. And I was struck that – the title aside – it has dated extremely well. In fact better than a lot a later films.

And of course HAL is still one of the most menacing screen presence’s ever.

Give yourself a treat and give it another viewing. (It comes over particularly well on the remastered version when on a HD TV)
