Yikes... I don't know how I can compare these and pick one, I guess if I could only save one movie as they both descended slowly into a vat of acid, I'd save 2001, and feel really bad about not being able to save Apocalypse Now.
how to choose between two great examples of using great classical music as the soundtrack?
OH MAH GODDDDD.
It seems like a tough call, but it's deceptive. 2001 all the way.
2001 by a hair
I gotta go with 2001 it was more entertaining and awe inspiring
Apocalypse Now by far.
2001: A Space Odyssey
Two excellent films that both make my top 10. If you know me, though, you'll know what my choice is.

Okay folks, when you must choose between two all-time greats that are vastly different, here's the defining litmus test: If you individually erased each of these films from American cinema history, which one would leave the biggest void? The obvious answer is 2001. It brought legitimacy to an otherwise overlooked genre to say the least. It revolutionized sci-fi and then became a trailblazer to a plethora of sci-fi films to come. Even the greatest sci-fi films that came after 2001 all borrowed (at least to some degree) from 2001. The entire Star Wars trilogy and the Alien trilogy are just a few examples. These are epic movies in their own right, but wouldn't have been nearly as good had they not been influenced by 2001. To further the point, some of them may not have even existed period. So all you Star Wars fans out there must realize that your favorite movie is really a film that pays homage to 2001. Apocalypse Now is great. In my opinion, it's the best Vietnam War movie ever made. It certainly made a valuable contribution to the movie industry, but it didn't impact the movie industry the way 2001 impacted it. For that reason, 2001 wins in my book.
