I actually cried at HAL's death scene a few months ago during the 50th Anniversary screening.  Probably my 40th viewing of the film over all these years--but it moved more this time than any of the previous times I've seen it.  I guess HAL felt like a much older friend after all this time.  Mortality is a bitch.

Same! He does not strike me as even remotely villainous these days. I found him wholly sympathetic.

The IMAX 70 screening I attended this past summer was by far the most profound experience I have ever had with this film. And I've seen it many many times, on practically every format. It's beyond cinema; simply one of the great works of art of the modern age. Not sure anything else even comes close.

I saw the film first-run in Cinerama as a tender, science-NASA nerd--all of 15 years old. Grew up watching Carpenter, Glenn, et al launch LIVE--without knowing what was going to happen at each launch.   

I'm not exaggerating when I say watching 2001 that first time was one of my first religious experiences.  (The other would have been my first planetarium show at the age of 9 or 10.)   I think I went 3 more times while it was still in it's reserved-seating engagement.  One of the things I'm proudest of regarding my viewings of this film is that I've never seen it on a small screen.  Every single one of my 40-ish viewings has been in a theatrical setting.   Anything else would feel....disrespectful, somehow.

Stan Lee died, so get ready for every Marvel movie to have a CGI version of him show up.

He has a cameo in Teen Titans Go To The Movies (which is actually a great film btw). Even though it's a DC film. Just shows what a huge figure he was in the industry.

William Goldman

Ouch.


[edit]  Cool story related by Jonathan Demme about Goldman and "Silence of the Lambs".

Tonight we just so happened to be screening “The Princess Bride” at the theater where I work. No, we did not plan to show it on the day that he died, things just worked out that way. Wouldn’t it be cool if we had that power though? It was a real honor to be showing one of his most beloved films today, even though the crowd was small it just really felt like we were doing him a solid.

RIP William Goldman
