Last week I watched one of my all-time favorite movies again. 2001: A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick is probably the best science fiction movie ever and does not seem to get stale or old. Instead, even in 2010, 9 years after the period it depicts, the movie still brings a glimpse of the future. Perhaps we will never get to 2001 as Kubrick and Clarke envisioned, maybe that’s the appeal.
The movie is layered and peeling those layers still proves to be fun, challenging, and inspirational. After I watched it, I decided to provide a visual summary that I hope will serve as a flashback tool for the fans of the movie. If you have not seen it before, this summary will likely not talk to you. But those who have seen the movie and enjoyed it will probably fill in the missing 2 hours from this visual summary. Let me know what you think of this derivative work and whether it speaks to you or not. About 12-minutes long.
Enjoy the memories! (In Hi-Def or Std-Def. If the video stutters first try starting the play then pausing it. It will continue to buffer. When it is fully buffered, you can enjoy the playback.)
