All the same set of supplements from the previous release are ported over for this anniversary Ultra HD edition and can be found on the accompanying Blu-ray. Giving home theater enthusiasts an awesome collection of demo-worthy scenery, the movie continuously shows inky, opulent blacks throughout, showing distinct gradational differences between the various shades and articles of clothing. Kubrick decided early on that he wanted the film to be a primarily non-verbal experience, and the result is an eerily quiet film.

Such as, when a recording of an interview of these two astronauts on the Discovery ship, is played, they both see it on a tablet-like device. There are also four additional featurettes: Standing on the Shoulders of Kubrick: The Legacy of 2001, Vision of a Future Passed: The Prophecy of 2001, 2001: A Space Odyssey – A Look Behind the Future and What Is Out There? After encountering this otherworldly device, one of the creatures inexplicably invents the first tool and uses it as a club to protect his tribe. The best way I can describe the way the HDR and wide color work on 2001: A Space Odyssey is that it feels like what happens when restoration experts remove centuries of grime from old paintings to reveal the intensity and beauty of the original painting again.estimation correctly) seen as at least a spark of inspiration for what 2001: A Space Odyssey ultimately became.
