I don't care if it alters the pacing of the movie. I wanna see them! It'd be interesting to watch them in context with the rest of the movie as part of an extended cut.

That's my favorite movie. I've got it on Blu-Ray even though I don't own a Blu-Ray player.

Maryn, serious

Meh. I am probably the only human still alive who didn't like that movie.

Meh. I am probably the only human still alive who didn't like that movie.No, you're not. I hated 2001. Hated it with a capital ARGGGGHHH!

Loved the book, though.

Wow, can't wait to see it.

Who'd a thunk it? A "sci-fi" movie that was up to the standards of WRITTEN SF!

I've got it in BetaMax. Sigh...

Maryn, serious
I've got a Betamax VCR.

It may be the only one. I can hardly wait, as well. I've loved the film since I saw it on a huge screen when it first came out, back when theaters had screens worthy of a film like it.

I've tried watching it three times and I've never made it to the end.

:banana: I'm happy about this. Of course this news could go either way - it could be underwhelming like The Good The Bad And The Ugly long cut, or it could totally rock like the Metropolis long cut. I'm hopeful.

I've got a Betamax VCR.Great! What time should I come over, and am I bringing popcorn?

Maryn, who hasn't had a functioning Betamax* in many, many years


* VCR players of any type do not take kindly to Mardi Gras beads being stuffed inside until they can accept no more, regardless of the fun it gives the toddler (who is now 24)

Wow. Let's make an already long and boring movie even longer...


Meh. I am probably the only human still alive who didn't like that movie.

No. I'm here for you.

OK on a lighter note, here's Ken Russell (yes, the Tommy / Altered States director and eccentric genius) apparently recasting 2001 with Strauss himself as the caveman (warning, NSFW and bootleg quality (http://www.dangerousminds.net/comments/ken_russells_banned_film_the_dance_of_the_seven_ve ils/)). :ROFL:

You are all dead to me.




2001 is one of my all time favorite sci-fi movies. HAL was a true movie monster. They could add three hours to this movie and I'd watch every minute. This...is awesome. :snoopy:

I doubt Warners will release this. They've always known about the scenes and respect Kubrick too much to view them if he didn't want them in.

I'm another.

Are these 17 minutes the bit of the film in which something actually happened, do you think?

I'd like to see 'em. Hope they appear, somewhere, someday.
