2001: A Space Odyssey Is Even More Of An Acid Trip When You Run It Through Google's Neural Network

Mother of god that’s cool-looking. If it weren’t for the damn DMCA I’d love to watch the whole movie like this — Kubrick’s expert use of colour be damned. But wait, let’s talk for a second about this video’s creator, because he’s only been uploading Deep Dream videos for a week and he’s already made some real gems.


The 10 Dumbest Artificial Intelligences Ever Created

The Singularity is coming soon! Artificial intelligences will reinvent everything, and there will be unlimited rice pudding. Except, of course, that when we imagine artificial intelligences in fiction, they’re often not that smart. Case in point? These 10 ridiculously dumb artificial intelligences.


50 Brilliant Science Fiction Movies That Everyone Should See

Science fiction has rocked cinemas for a century, and the genre has produced many undisputed classics during that time. But which movies are essential viewing for anyone interested in the genre? We broke down the 50 must-watch science fiction films.


The Folio Society's Edition Of 2001: A Space Odyssey Is Absolutely Amazing 

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Folio Society’s special editions. They have been creating some fantastic books, particularly in the science fiction world. After tackling Frank Herbert’s Dune, Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle and Ursula K. Le Guin’s A Wizard of Earthsea, they have set their sights on a new classic: Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.


The Eyes On This 2001 Dave Bowman Figure Will Haunt Your Dreams

There’s a good reason Stanley Kubrick chose actor Keir Dullea to play astronaut Dave Bowman in 2001: A Space Odyssey. The actor obviously delivered a brilliant performance, but there was also something a bit unsettling about him, just like the film, and this one-sixth scale Keir Dullea figure from Executive Replicas. Even HAL comes across less creepy than those glaring eyes do.


Steven Soderbergh Recuts Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey

Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the most iconic science fiction films of all time. Transcending the very genre it helped to modernise, it would be an act of desecration for any other person to re-cut Kubrick’s masterpiece. Well, hey would you look at that, guess what Steven Soderbergh just did?


Ridley Scott Is Producing A Miniseries Sequel To 2001: A Space Odyssey

Great news for Arthur C. Clarke and/or Ridley Scott fans (in other words, everyone). The Blade Runner and Alien director just signed on to produce a Syfy Channel miniseries version of Clarke’s 2001 sequel, 3001: The Final Odyssey.


Watch 2001: A Space Odyssey As A 60-Second Cartoon

Video: 2001: A Space Odyssey earns the term “epic” more than almost any other movie. The two-hour-and-forty-one-minute cinema classic is an absolute must-watch. But if you don’t have that kind of time, Speedrun just very loosely condensed the plot down to a mere 60 seconds.


The Making Of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey

What’s most notable about Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is that the epic science fiction adventure was made using old-school practical special effects, well before computer graphics became a staple of the film industry. So when someone like Taschen releases a four-volume book set detailing the film’s production, you just know it will be chock full of wonderful behind-the-scenes images — not just screenshots of 3D software.


How Typography Set 2001: A Space Odyssey In The Sci-Fi Future

Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is visually stunning. And the closer you examine, the more exquisite details you’ll find. That’s what Dave Addey has done in his in-depth, scene-by-scene examination of how this cinema masterpiece used typography to create a familiar yet still distant future.
