<h2>8. 2001: A Space Odyssey</h2>
<br><br>
<b>The disc</b>
Stanley Kubrick’s sprawling space saga has never looked better than it does on Blu-ray. For those weaned on the VHS or DVD editions, this 1080p/VC-1 transfer will come as a revelation – it’s like going from the Stone Age to the Space Age in one masterful jump-cut. Every trick in the trade has been used to make <i>2001: A Space Odyssey</i> look the best it possibly can. Images are awash with hereunto unseen detail, while the vibrant colour palate is truly a feast for the eyes. In short; this is what Blu-ray was invented for.<br><br>
<b>The film</b>
<i>2001: A Space Odyssey</i> is a timeless classic that demands to be watched and analysed over a lifetime. Originally released in 1968, the visual effects still hold up to this day. (Indeed, the space scenes look so plausible, that [[xref:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_landing|some people are convinced Kubrik helped 'fake' the 1969 moon landing!]])
