Default '2010' - High-Def Digest Review

Josh Zyber has turned his unblinking gaze to '2010.' He says this movie is underrated for an 80's sci-fi film, but a disappointment when compared to 2001. This Blu-ray looks and sounds as good as it ever could. Recommended.

very nice review.
I've always liked this movie a lot regardless of the pointless comparisons to the Kubrick masterpiece.
I wonder if the third movie will ever get made?

As stated in the review, the previous DVD release was a bad non-anamorphic one, so this is definitely an improvement over that. It certainly didn't receive the same TLC that 2001 did, but for $15 at Wal-Mart, I can't complain.

according to the review it DID receive the same TLC.
It doesn't have as pristine a source material and therefore doesn't look as good.
the video quality is excellent.
but you read that, right?

Me too! This is the best thing Hyams will probably ever do.

I think he was referring to the lack of extras.

I like this film; I'll have to buy it.

As the direct sequel to one of the greatest motion pictures ever made, quite frankly, '2010' stinks.
In my eyes, it doesn't mean that 2010 stinks. This statement gives one the impression that a movie is either good if it's completely standalone and/or original, or terrible if it is connected to another work in any way. By no means does it have to be a polar opposite argument.

2010 is a great film by itself, even though it's not as good as 2001.

I didn't care for 2001, so I'm guessing I would really hate this movie?

Actually they are way different. 2010's pace is much faster and the movie actually makes sense, which is nice.
