** Though to be fair it was revealed in 2010 that [[spoiler: in a way what happened wasn't HAL's fault. He was ordered to keep the true nature of the mission a secret, which conflicted with his basic programing, which caused his actions in the film. The man who planned the Discovery mission was LIVID when he found out what had been done to HAL]].

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Given the copious amounts of [[NightmareFuel Nightmare Fuel]] and [[MindScrew Mind Screw]], it can be easy to forget that this film is rated ''G.'' The MPAA was kinda weird back then.

The MPAA was kinda weird back then.This is because the [=MPAA=] judges on "content" (graphic violence, nudity, sex) rather than "tone".

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfTheGhetto: Kubrick made this film specifically to bring science-fiction into the mainstream. He was fascinated by concepts of the genre but disappointed by most science-fiction books and movies. Drawing from external references (modernist literature, painting literature and philosophy), he deliberately approached the genre in a more realistic and enigmatic fashion. His film eschewed some of the genre trappings of WorldBuilding (space jargon, technology, alien species) and focused on how mysterious and bewildering space travel and alien contact could actually be. The groundbreaking special effects and greater sophistication made many people treat ''2001'' as an art-movie and EpicMovie spectacle rather than the usual BMovie contempt which science-fiction was usually treated with.

** Just some icing on the cake, but one of the characters is named Dr. Floyd, which sounds a lot like Dr. ''Freud.''

* {{Fanon}}: See the [[WMG/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey Wild Mass Guessing]] page.



* ShoutOut: Possibly. Move each letter in HAL's name up one letter, and you get IBM. This gets a brief discussion in the novelization of ''2010''.
