2001 wins without any competition. It's the single one Kubrick movie I really enjoyed.
My favourite shot in 2001 is the over the shoulder shot when they're walking down to the monolith on the moon. That's a weird thing to say, but I always think of it. I also like every closeup of HAL. It's kind of a ballsy thing to do, to treat a red light as if it were a face and cut to it constantly. I also like... let's see. I like it when Dave is stuck outside the ship and he asks HAL like 12 times to open the pod bay door. It makes me laugh. I also like it when what's-his-name makes a video conference call to his daughter and it costs like $8 dollars or something and we're supposed to be like AHA! THE FUTURE! But like he's calling from outer space. Actually I have no idea how much it costs. It could be $50, what do I know. I just know that we're supposed to be like IN THE FUTURE MONEY IS WORTHLESS. I also think his daughter might be developmentally challenged. She's not like retarded, but I think she might need a professional helper. Half-Retard, if you will. He asks where her mother is and she starts staring off into space. Not outer space, that comes later.
Obviously 2001. Kubricks masterpiece right here.
2001 is a very eerie movie. It's amazing to see what Kubrick thought the kind of technology we would have in 2001. And especially, the beginning scene is one of the best in history
2001 without any doubt. FMJ is still really solid and way up my top 50, but damn... 2001, looking at how that movie holds up, 50 years later. Brilliant!
2001 is what every Kubrick movie tries to match up to.
It's weird thinking that 2001 is almost 45 years old. A great majority of the special effects in it are far greater than some of the crap being spewed out today. Personally, I enjoyed the entirety of FMJ. Sure the first half is stronger than the second, but that second half is both intense and is full of hidden imagery. Between 2001 and FMJ, I'm going with 2001.
FMJ....I'll be the loner!
