YMMV: 2010: The Year We Make Contact
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Dave Bowman's widow is seen wearing an off-the-shoulder Flashdance-style T-shirt. These actually came back into fashion in the real 2010.
    • Dr. Floyd's son has a poster of the Olympics in his bedroom, the bottom of the poster reads "Beijing '08". For added flavor, keep in mind that this film was made in 1984, and that the IOC wouldn't declare Beijing host of the 2008 games until...2001.
  • Memetic Mutation: ALL THESE WORLDS ARE YOURS EXCEPT EUROPA. ATTEMPT NO LANDINGS THERE. USE THEM TOGETHER, USE THEM IN PEACE.
    • "You see, something's going to happen." "What?" "Something WONDERFUL."
    • Humorous variations on the title of the film were used quite a lot as newspaper headlines in the year of 2010.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: Some feel 2001 was a great artistic achievement, but even some of its fans admit that it can be ponderously-paced at times with wooden characters and a lot of Scenery Porn. 2010 was a better movie for the masses (and some scifi fans) in that it was much less artistic and more accessible.
