Trivia

The anti-nuclear sign visible in wide-screen when Arthur C. Clarke makes his cameo in front of the White House, was an actual long-standing icon in Lafayette Park on the far side of the executive mansion, tended for years by an activist, and which grew in size by degrees over several years. The depicted version was an intermediate one. An even larger version would be banished when all semi-permanent protest displays were banned from the park due to increased security concerns.

Goofs

When Curnow and Max enter the Discovery for the first time, the walls next to the pod bay doors are bare. Later on, the walls have several signs warning that the pod bay must be vented before the doors can open. See more »

Interesting, but so direct.

2010 is not a bad movie. It really clears up points made in 2001 that no one would ever figure out without this film, like why Hal went mad. The cast is good, special effects look OK, however they seem a bit cheap compared to 2001. My biggest problem is everything in the movie is so direct, every little thing is explained to you. This is the complete opposite of 2001 where nothing is given. Hopefully is they make a 2061 or whatever the next book in the sequence was, a happy medium will be found between the two styles.
