About this item

Stanley Kubrick's dazzling, Academy Award-winning achievement, a compelling drama of man vs. machine, a stunning meld of music and motion. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted realms of space, perhaps even into immortality. "Open the pod bay doors, HAL." Let an awesome journey unlike any other begin.

Audio Commentary, Channel Four Documentary "2001: The Making Of A Myth", 4 Insightful Featurettes, "2001: FX And Early Conceptual Work", "Look! Stanley Kubrick!", Theatrical Trailer.

Audio-Only Bonus: 1966 Kubrick Interview Conducted By Jeremy Bernstein.

Best 2001 Edition Yet
10/23/2008

Customer review by 50BMG

5.0 stars 10/23/2008 by 50BMG

I have many copies of 2001, including LaserDisk, DVD and now this Blu-Ray edition. Not all 2001's are the same. Many are made from prints that are substantially degraded or worn. I have encountered these in the past. Until now, I thought I would never again see another Digital edition made from the same heralded source as the 1993 25th Anniversary Deluxe CAV Widescreen LaserDisk. or the 2001 Deluxe Collectors DVD Box Set with Senitype. This is quite apparent because it lacks editing marks of any kind, being re-constructed from the original film elements and camera negatives. Likewise, this Blu-Ray edition is PRISTINE. The picture quality is unsurpassed by any previous rendering. It is noiseless, clear, strikingly colorful and faithful in every way to my recollection of the original theatrical experience. Techincal: CODEC:VC-1 ASPECT:2.2:1 Anamorphic Vertical Resolution:1080P Horizontal Resolution: Unknown - probably 1330 or more - could be 1920, it's hard to know. Until viewing this version, I had my doubts about the VC-1 coding system. No more. It is well able to handle this material faithfully. Bit rates are often in the 20Mbit range, but not higher that I've noticed. My Equipment: Epson 1080P (1920x1080) 3LCD HD Video Projector 100" Diagonal Grey High Contrast Projection Screen Onkyo THX TX-DS939 5.1 Surround with THX Speakers HDMI Connected Playstation3 Blu-Ray Player Summary: This Blu-Ray edition is a "must have" for any 2001 enthusiast. If you were not fortunate enough to see it in the theatre originally, this will make that experience possible if you have the right equipment. An excellent value at any price.

My single motivation for writing this is in response to Strumgirl's review (?) on 9/5/09. I do not wish to be harsh or unfairly critical in my comments, but at my very heart I am compelled to assist. I could list many of the undeniable facts about this film. Suffice it to say it will most certainly remain one of the most important films for ages to come, and it will forever remain one of only a few films significantly ahead of its time. If I can be so bold as to lend anything of value to those who can both listen and hear, I can only suggest the traditional resources. Read literature, listen to classical music, study the classical arts, etc. Always remember "the unexamined life is not worth living". If you should care to research the author of this expression, then you are, at last, on your way...

This is one of the best blu ray movies out there. The picture quality is simply amazing for a film made in the 1960's. I highly recommend you get it if you like this film. The improvements over the normal DVD are breathtaking!
