This is an excellent candidate for a Warner Brothers two-disc special edition. Hint, hint, Warner Brothers! ;)

i wouldn't say it's a better film than 2001, because they're very different films. 2010 took a more hard-edged science fiction approach to things, whereas 2001 went a more thoughtful route. Both are some of the best films in the science fiction genre.

2-Disc Set for 2010!
I'd buy that in half a New York Minute. In fact, i'd buy three copies if that would help get it produced.

Has anyone brought up 2010 in any of the Warner chats? I just scanned a couple of transcripts but came up dry. It would certinaly make a nice 2-disc edition.

I realize 2001 is a classic, but frankly I much prefer 2010, and I'm not sure I've ever been able to stay awake all the way through 2001. I'm sure I've seen it all, just never in one sitting. I find it to be incredibly boring. 2010, however, I loved, especially the message at the end.

Maybe they are saving this for its 0th anniversary in four years.

Well, at least we get Helen Mirren (Yum at that age) at John Lithgow doing his thing. I enjoy the film on a certain level, but never equate it to Kubrick in any manner other than the obvious attempt to sequel.

I'd welcome an updated version, but don't have high hopes at this point.

It's a drag that this and Outland are such cruddy discs. Hyams photography deserves better, and I'd buy both, WB. As for 2010, I always thought it would benefit from a little Blade Runner-ish tinkering: cut the lame voiceovers and the sappy "use them together, use them in peace!" part of the end message. That wasn't in the book. Plus, there would've been more suspense at the end (when they're worried that HAL would let them all die) if we weren't already told that HAL was just misunderstood. So cutting HAL's "motivation-explaining scene" would have double benefits. To me, those three changes would help a lot.

At least those are widescreen.
Universal's "Timecop" is cropped pan & scan!

And a "cult" film like "Event Horizon" has an SE.
Paul WS Anderson gets more respect from the studios!

WOW what a film I have no completes with this film, the scope framing is spot on, as too is the rocking six-track Dolby Stereo mix, thou it’s only got monaural surrounds, as it was released back in 1984, it’s still fantastic, the isolated music tracks on the film playback a whole lot better as does dialogue and sound effects, over the 4:2:4 Dolby Stereo version, with fly colours, and strength in the .1 when it comes in!

How was air breaking! Yeah that’s a rocking scene bass sub bass and .1 violently vibrate the home cinema, as it presses down on you, you get a since of what the re-recording mixers where aiming for, which was nominated for best sound. Yeah this version sounds remarkable close to the 70mm road show event on DVD.

Picture 9/10

Sound 10/10

Overall 8/10

She's Yum at any age :D

It would be nice to see 2010 come out on HD DVD now that 2001 is set to hit the format, but I'm not holding my breath.

LOL

What is it with “Helen Mirren” I’m sorry I don’t get the joke!? At that age!?

2010 eats to 2001 for breakfast, and I’m taking about the naff sound on “2001” I heard that the earlier version of “2001” is more exact sounding!

Now back to “2010” the version I have is not anamorphic, it’s a 4:3 letter-box edition, which still looks grand over the puking up P&S version, those donkeys making P&S versions should be tried to the back end of car!:D

No DVD is better than a pan-and-scan one, but you can't possibly expect any of us to take your observations seriously if you give a non-anaorphic transfer 9 out of 10 stars. Even if you are using a relative scale (non-anamorphic titles to other non-anamorphic titles), Criterion's non-anamorphic transfer of ARMAGEDDON would be a 9; 2010's might rank a 5...might. Oh, and the Helen Mirren love? Freakin' gross, guys...
