2001: A Space Odyssey vs Interstellar

Reply
  • Arguably the 2 most ambitious space related films ever

    Which one does film section prefer?

    I think for me personally i slightly prefer 2001 but i've only seen Interstellar one time so i really need to rewatch that one to be sure

  • 2 masterpieces

  • interstellar is more enjoyable imo, maybe because of the emotional aspect which 2001 doesnt really have

    2001 is a bit harder to watch for me

    but love both for their own thing

  • 2001 easily, not a legitimate discussion in my mind

  • I don't even like 2001 that much but

  • 2001

    it is the predecessor - it gets a point for that

  • while both are very ambitious space related movies, i dont think you can really compare the two as they deal with different themes and are centered around different questions. I guess Solaris vs 2001 might make for a better comparison.

  • Interstellar is f***ing incredible but 2001 is still the zenith

    That makes even less sense
    At least Nolan and Kubrick were existing in the same universe... Solaris something else entirely.

    Oh i didn't knew that. I actually shouldnt even used Solaris as an example cause i havent seen it yet Its just that i read a couple of times that Tarkovsky´didnt liked 2001 and made Solaris as some kind of response. Do you think there is a film that is comparable with 2001?

  • Idk but I like the music in Interstellar

  • I didn't really like 2001 but I can admit there's just something special about it, and I can't pinpoint what exactly.

    I definitely enjoyed interstellar more though

    Yeah, Interstellar. Kubrick just wanted to make "the proverbial sci fi film" which I feel applies to Nolan as well. Both are urgent space faring adventures that are about the experience. Tarkovsky (one of my faves) made a philosophical art film that happens to take place on a space station and it far more of a cerebral thing. always thought 2001 comparisons were dumb.

  • Disrespectful ass thread. Spitting on kubrik's grave lowkey

    "Love is the most powerful resource"

  • 2001 but Interstellar is my favorite Nolan film.
    one of the most beautiful movies to watch

  • 2001 ofc
    it was the 60's. it was more than just a movie

  • Both take ideas from Jupiter’s Ascending. They’re trash

  • cmon dawg dont do kubrick lile this

    Like comparing the conjuring to shining

    Nah interstellar fire but comparing it to 2001 makes it look like trash ngl

  • 2001 birthed interstellar. also the fact it came out in 1968 and doing what it did is insane.

    going to one of the 2001 exhibits will make you appreciate it more.

  • Leaving out influence and impact, Interstellar was a way more affecting and powerful watch

    2001 is still a very fascinating watch but I appreciate it more than I actually enjoy it. The camera work, the visuals for its time, how things seem so perfectly paced just feels like precise art that couldnt have been made better. But I also feel Interstellar couldn’t have been done better or by anyone else. Its funny because despite the 2001 comparisons, it excels for doing everything 2001 didn’t do.

  • For me, 2001’s appeal grows w time while Interstellar’s shrinks

    I feel like both Interstellar and Solaris ask similar questions about love and relationships against existentialism- they just give different answers. Those films would be decently paired even tho I’m not gonna be the one to do it

    This is overreacting if i ever seen it i even said in op i prefer 2001 myself

    But lets not act like Interstellar isn't one of the greatest space movies in recent memory

    Thought it would make for a good discussion considering a lot of younger people will probably view Interstellar as their absolute classic space movie
