* AdaptationExpansion[=/=]TheFilmOfTheBook: Clarke's original short story, "The Sentinel", dealt only with the part about the Monolith on the Moon. Kubrick and Clarke then expanded the story into a film and book that were released simultaneously. Clarke stated the book should be credited as "Clarke and Kubrick", with "Kubrick and Clarke" credited for the screenplay. Unlike a {{Novelization}}, there are distinct differences between the two; for starters, Clarke's ''Discovery'' travels to one of Saturn's moons, while Kubrick's ''Discovery'' goes to Jupiter. The reason for this change was to avoid a SpecialEffectFailure: the film crew couldn't build a model of Saturn that Kubrick liked, so he changed it.

** In other material, that ratio is explained as being a reference to the quadratic sequence of positive square integers.

Added DiffLines:

** Interestingly enough, the error isn't inherent in HAL, either hardware or software, as it was stated by an engineer that the technology in the ship was made to be accident proof and idiot-proof but nothing could make any machine proof against malevolent intent. In this case it was the secret orders given to HAL (while not all that malevolent in nature) that conflicted with his primary programming and caused him to malfunction spectacularly.

** Even HAL's red eye seems to create this effect in certain shots (for example, [[spoiler: right after killing the hibernating astronauts.]]

* BigBad: The leopard in the "Dawn of Man" segment, and HAL in the "2001" segment. The "Beyond the Infinite" segment has NoAntagonist.



* NoNewFashionsInTheFuture: This is most obvious with the very [[TheSixties '60s]]-looking women's hairstyles, and the matching plaid suit and pants worn by the photographer at the moonbase.

* NonMaliciousMonster:
** The leopard in the "Dawn of Man" segment. It's not even really a monster, just an ordinary animal doing what it has to do to survive, but because the protagonists are apes, it's the segment's "villain".
** HAL 9000 in the "2001" segment. While it's ambiguous whether or not he's sentient, his psychotic behaviour wasn't his fault, being caused by a LogicBomb in his programming.

* NotSoStoic: The astronauts tend to maintain calm and professional even in crisis situations. However, when [[spoiler: HAL refuses to let him back through the pod bay doors or continue the conversation]] Dave's composure briefly wavers. And later [[spoiler: when he is deactivating HAL]], he is audibly breathing heavily, most likely from fear. And that's ''before'' he enters [[spoiler: [[GoMadFromTheRevelation the stargate]]... ]]

Added DiffLines:

* StarterVillain: The leopard is an odd example as it never encounters the main protagonist. Rather, it serves as this to ''humanity''; while not evil, it's the biggest threat to the apes destined to become the ancestors of mankind at the beginning. Then the Monolith teaches apes how to make tools, and their next confrontation [[CurbStompBattle goes quite differently.]]

The film's story tracks long-term human evolution as it is influenced by unseen [[{{Precursors}} aliens]]. The unearthing of one of their artifacts on the moon leads to an ill-fated expedition being dispatched to Jupiter, culminating in a famously [[GainaxEnding incomprehensible]] climax. (The novel offers ''a'' if not ''the'' explanation for the latter.)
