When it comes to the building blocks of modern science fiction, for at least people our age, in their 40's, it all starts with 2001 A Space Odyssey.  

Join Carlos at GeekFest Rants as we dip our toe into the ocean that is 2001.  From the film by Stanley Kubrick, to the novel by Arthur C. Clarke, to the comic book adaptation by Jack Kirby, how are they the same and different.  And lest we forget the cinematic sequel 2010 The Year We Make Contact. 

Does this Roy Scheider vehicle live up to the monolithic original?  Pun intended.  Does this 50 year old film still hold up?
