It's visually stunning, especially since it was made in 1968, and the music is amazing but it's also irritatingly slow. I'm afraid I might not be sophisticated enough for this one.

This is my favorite movie of all time, the visuals and the idea behind it are just stunning.

This is not just a movie, it's a experience, and a fantastic, thought-provoking one.

Just watched it for the 4th time on BluRay with commentary from Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood, the two principals.

Highly recommended in this HD format. Lockwood says at one point that audiences both then and now divided about 70/30 into those that couldn't praise it highly enough, and those who couldn't wait for it to finish. Pauline Kael of the NY Times hated it.

Fascinating. I love how the sound was so important in this movie.

While I think the basic premise of the movie is fairly interesting, I have to agree with many of the other reviewers that I found the execution somewhat of a bore. Yes, it's visually a striking film, with Kubrick experimenting with special effects of the time. But beyond that, the story as a whole doesn't really give you much. I just don't understand why this movie is on so many "best of..." lists. Important and visually striking, yes. But I didn't think it was an interesting enough film to warrant all of the continued reverence that it seems to get.

Brilliant and beautiful, a bit slow but not boring,

What can I say about 2001: A Space Odyssey that hasn't already been said, somewhere? I am of those who agree that it is a masterpiece and that it looks as good and relevant today as it ever did.

This film was made in 1968-- take a moment and really consider what was Kubrik had done. I don't think a more beautiful or even technologically made sci-fi movie could be made today.. even with our current advances in modern technology.

Just re-watched 2001 (a 10 year intermission) after experiencing Interstellar (you don't watch it, you experience it) in IMAX last week. I really wanted to explore if 2001 could easily keep me in that 'outer space travel'-vibe that Interstellar managed to convey so very well. And it did. I darkened the room, play its 1080p DTS version and after 2.5hours I had the same sensory overload when I walked out of Nolan's space epic. The latter being highly influenced on the former, I do believe these two gems combined culminate in the most epic of space epics where time and space are infinite, a celestial limbo of events. Remain in that black hole of a dark theater or room for a while after seeing this, before daring back to a world where time, alas, gets a hold of you again.

Rewatched this, had forgotten how great it is. The visuals are amazing and the "story" is thoughtprovoking. I did get som parts but I'm not really sure if I understood the ending at all.

I didn't feel bored, it's an amazing experience, with great music. It's a very beautiful story.

This movie may be one of the most loved and hated at the same time, because it was made for people exercise their minds to understand it. It is that kind of movie that you say "it's not for everyone",

I got to watch this in it's original 70mm print in a theater. If you get a chance to see it in this format, do! It was one of the best filmgoing experiences I've ever had and it made me respect the film 20 times more.

Amazing visuals, and overall very good film. However, I would be lying if I said the pace didn't annoy me at points.

I don't agree with yah5, sure it uses imagery and music to advance the plot, but to me it doesn't always flow naturally. It really seems as if some important storymoments don't communicate that well. Maybe they did in the 60s, but they don't work for me. I'd rather read the book - much more awesome.
