    For those followers of the Kubrickian religion, the sequel to 2001 has arrived on Blu-ray, and Mr. Hyams film, love it or hate it, looks terrific on WB's Blu-ray.

    Well terrific short of the most poorly exposed logo ever to hit the Blu-ray format. I sometimes have no idea what people are thinking, or how a disc can pass QC, but regardless, there is a logo.

    For its fans, this is a disc that they've been waiting for, brought to Blu-ray with all of its quality intact -- save for the logo. As an aside, one of SK's absolutes re: the original was to have absolutely black star fields. Fortunately the blacks in 2010 work nicely.

    By logo are you talking about the shockingly bad looking MGM Diamond Jubilee logo?

    I think so Michael, it was a shock when I saw how bad that logo looked!

    At least the log wasn't replaced, would rather have it bad looking then replaced at all.

    I remember the logo always looking bad... in fact, I saw a 35mm print of 2010 projected last summer, and the logo looked pretty crappy there. I remember for a moment thinking "Oh crap, is this gonna be a bad print?" but the film itself looked far better than the logo.
