2001 by FAR

Erm, no. Both are among the most technically accomplished and realistic space movies of all time, but 2001 is completely cold and emotionless. It may be ahead of its time, both technically and philosophically, and it may be extremely influencial on the Science Fiction, but I feel absolutely dead and uninspired every time I watch it. Apollo 13 is my favourite film of all time, a perfect blend of entertainment and good filmmaking, and even after watching it thousands of times, I cannot find a SINGLE thing wrong with it. Apollo 13 wins by miles.

"2001 is completely cold and emotionless." man, you're gonna watch that scene with the monolith where that chorus builds up and builds up to an ear-splitting din, then just cuts off and leaves you like "!!! holy shit!!"--and tell me that's cold and emotionless?

It's interesting that these two movies have almost the exact same running time, yet one feels significantly longer than the other. Kudos to Apollo 13 for not being a ponderous, meandering wank.

Apollo 13 bored the fucking hell out of me. I've only seen like the first hour of it and always turn it off. But 2001 on the other I find very enjoyable, although it's hard to get into it. I just think the scenes are more exciting in it. I don't find it boring at all.

. Apollo 13 to me is maybe a 7 out of 10 movie....A pretty good show,a great cast,i enjoyed it........ BUT I hear people talk about 2001 and use the word masterpiece.....I watched that show al ong time ago ,perhaps i have to try it again....I flat out thought it was slow and boring.I guess when i was 18 i wanted space movies to excite me more....To be continued......

I love Apollo 13, but this one's easy. 2001 is one of my top 10 favorites, while Apollo 13 is maybe top 75, and 2001 is a full on experience.

2001 takes the cake.
