Why to Watch - 2001: A Space Odyssey

You ever hear the conspiracy that the moon landing is fake and filmed by Stanley Kubrick? Well as dumb as that sounds, watch this and marvel in the fact that he was able to create these dynamic sets without any CGI or greenscreen in the year 1968. And obviously the moon landing wasn’t fake but holy shit if anyone could pull it off it was Kubrick.

Director: Stanley KubrickWriter: Stanley Kubrick, Arthur C. ClarkeStars: Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William SylvesterSummary: "2001" is a story of evolution. Sometime in the distant past, someone or something nudged evolution by placing a monolith on Earth (presumably elsewhere throughout the universe as well). Evolution then enabled humankind to reach the moon's surface, where yet another monolith is found, one that signals the monolith placers that humankind has evolved that far. Now a race begins between computers (HAL) and human (Bowman) to reach the monolith placers. The winner will achieve the next step in evolution, whatever that may be. —Larry Cousins
