“I’m afraid I can’t do that, Dave.” Hal 9000 said plainly.

This science fiction masterpiece shows you music that is free to play anywhere and at anytime as well as showing us the vast monoliths that existed in this classic film.

Here is the basic plot…An imposing black structure provides a connection between the past and the future in this enigmatic adaptation of a short story by revered sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke. When Dr. Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and other astronauts are sent on a mysterious mission, their ship’s computer system, HAL, begins to display increasingly strange behavior, leading up to a tense showdown between man and machine that results in a mind-bending trek through space and time.

I found this movie to be very cerebral and intellectual. The technology was far ahead of what is existing even now with the year 2001. It is truly science fiction as Arthur C. Clark wrote. Another interesting book you would want to take note of is Rendevous at Rama. The film was directed by Stanley Kubrick and the music was done by a variety of artists.

Here are some interesting concepts that take you into the film as well as introduce you to comics in a really fun way.
