Re: Favorite character

Actually, I'm going with the obelisk. It's that whole 'tall, dark and silent' thing it's got going on - real screen presence. Plus the ability to turn a gas giant into a star, that's a laudable quality for any character to display.

I definitely love HAL the best. In fact, if he was in more of the movie, it would possibly be one of my favorite Kubrick flicks. I enjoyed it overall anyway, but I was certainly the most intrigued during the Hal portions of the movie.

Re: Favorite character

Hal added to the fear and suspense of the whole thing. But was almost a second subplot. I love Hal. Best character period.

Re: Favorite character

You guys should have a look at : www.kubrick2001.com for a flash multimedia movie on the explanantion of 2001. A very interesting and intriguing perspective on this most baffling of movies...

BTW, this is one of my all time favourite movies

Re: Favorite character

HAL is one of thoose characters you can never forget. Just an idea of HAL is amazing. If the world ever does get taken over by a bunch of HALs, I wouldn't mind.

Re: Favorite character

gotta be HAL. Even though he(?) is just a machine, and a very cold and calculating one at that, he was also had a big screen presence that totally dominated over all the other characters, including Dave.

edit -- I was almost welling up when he got unplugged while singing "Daisy: A Bicycle Made For two"
