To also celebrate the occasion, latter-day wunderkind filmmaker Christopher Nolan is taking a 70mm print of the film to this year’s Cannes Film Festival for screening on the French Riviera in honor of the milestone.

Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ At 50

2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey, the groundbreaking film by Stanley Kubrick, celebrated its 50th anniversary this month, a milestone for a film that remains unlike no other.

Transcending its face value of a science fiction movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey, which polarized audiences and critics alike upon its first release in April 1968, remains a visual allegory for a multitude of complex ideas that spread social, humanistic, societal, and ultimately spiritual aspects. Birth, death, and reawakening act as common and essential threads through the entire narrative, and it acts as multitudes of tones and styles interwoven throughout, with dazzling visual spectacles that arrest and envelope sensory perception in ways almost unheard of in cinema prior to 1968. It’s a monumental film, a true epic in the greatest light possible, and it remains a cornerstone of inspiration, wonderment, and an apex of what the cinema can really do and how far it can go.

2001: A Space Odyssey

Ridley Scott is set to executive produce a miniseries adaptation of 3001: The Final Odyssey by author Arthur C. Clarke for Syfy.

3001 is the final entry of the “Space Odyssey” series, which began with 2001: A Space Odyssey. Both the 2001 novel and film were developed at the same time—the former written by Clarke and the latter directed by Stanley Kubrick and written by Clarke and Kubrick, with both being released in 1968.

2001: A Space Odyssey Image

Back in 1970 a book came out titled The Making of Kubrick’s 2001, an observation and exploration of the 1968 Stanley Kubrick classic 2001: A Space Odyssey edited by Jerome Agel.

Many books have been printed in relation to the movie, but none like this one. Yet for some reason, the book is no longer in print, and is very rare. Until now, that is. The entire 372-page (including cover and back) book has been made available online for the world to enjoy.

The book offers all kinds of great 2001 content, including the first report of Kubrick and MGM making a new movie titled Journey Beyond the Stars; the full short story that the movie was adapted from, The Sentinel by Arthur C. Clarke; strips from MAD Magazine poking fun at the movie; and a wealth of images and quotes and much more.

You can check out every page of The Making of Kubrick’s 2001 below now.

The Ultimate Geek Movies Of All TimeThis week, the podcast Social Blend, which I co-host with Jay Fowler aka SilentJay74, was invaded by the Geeks of Doom! Empress Eve and Tched were considerate enough to join us in a discussion focusing on what we believe to be The Ultimate Geek Movies of All Time.

Quite frequently, you will find some blogs try to come up with some attempt at a “Top 10” list of best movies within any given subject area, but for this special edition of Social Blend, we decided to simply discuss, debate, and squabble about (and in some cases, ridicule) the movies we collectively believe should be on every geek’s DVD shelf.

Aside from the obvious selections from the dominions of Star Wars and Star Trek, we had a look at all kinds of movies from a wide range of genres and categories — from movies based on comics, to science fiction, to music-based films, to horror and beyond.
