With his virtuosic adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke's novel, Stanley Kubrick invented the modern science fiction film.
It's a miracle Cole Smithey got it right fro once.

Except that he didn't. Kubrick's film was not an adaption of Clarke's novel but a film produced at the same time as the writing of the novel. Clarke wrote the novel having seen very early, in-progress versions of the screenplay.

lol yea really way for dumb critics to get on the bandwagon after reading only the imdb page. 2001 the movie and 2001 the book are two whole different universes that were not adapted from each other but from the collaboration of kubrick and clarke. This makes 2010 the year we make contact so much more interesting when you understand it is a literary sequel based on the books and following clarke's story rather then being a sequel to kubricks movie. The fact that they used the same Dave and HAL is believe it or not a coincidence
