    "2001: A Space Oddesey is your classic film about humans and machine. Machines are often depicted as objective-oriented while disregarding human factors like emotions. HAL 9000 is a scary fellow because it would rather jeopardize the lives of the crew to carry out the mission. HAL eventually showed human weaknesses as it gets disconnected. Here's the question: are we ready to depend on pragmatic AIs?"

    "2001: A Space Odyssey is, in my humble opinion, Stanley Kubrick's greatest work. It not only codified everything we believe the future would look like, it also features a great story that would require intensive watching in order to understand. Visually, this movie still holds up and can go toe to toe with the CGI-heavy movies of today. Definitely put this on your to-watch list for the weekend!"

    "HAL is the computer character I can't forget about this movie. He's so super smart and error-free! He's voiced as male so I'm referring to him as 'he'. He's super smart that he became the element for man versus machine present in this movie which actually got me thrilled when this first came out."

    "2001: A Space Odyssey is a classic. I loved how the way tried to be faithful to the book. Space exploration is the new frontier and I think all sci-fi movies or at least those in dealing with space stories could be traced back to the classic book."

    "This is far and away one of the best sci-fi films out there, if not one of the best films period. The plot and the dialogue is so iconic, and the way it's shot is just beautiful. You won't stop thinking about this one for a long, long time."

    "2001: A Space Odyssey features one of the most frightening AIs I've ever seen in film. HAL 9000 was terrifyingly cold and calculating. In its mind, it is doing what it believes to the correct and that is the scariest thing of all."
