2010: The Year We Make Contact

In the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick turned Arthur C. Clarke's first serial, year-named book into an artistic and even metaphysical masterpiece, skillfully representing the story and the visuals while managing to confuse audiences completely — and yet not preventing them from enjoying the story. In 2010, Peter Hyams makes a more conventional picture, but one that is more accessible to audiences and which, not coincidentally, wraps up many of the loose ends found in the original story. Where 2001 was primarily about suspense, 2010 adds more of an element of drama to the picture while retaining the most fascinating aspect of the original story; the interaction between the crew and HAL, the intelligent computer which pilots the space ship Discovery.
