2010: THE YEAR WE MAKE CONTACT
1984, Warner Bros., 116 min, USA, Dir: Peter Hyams

Adapted from Arthur C. Clarke's follow-up novel, this underrated sequel to 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY follows a joint U.S.-Soviet mission sent to discover what happened to the Discovery spacecraft. Roy Scheider, John Lithgow, Bob Balaban and Helen Mirren lead the team of astronauts, with Keir Dullea and Douglas Rain (the voice of HAL 9000) returning from the original film. “This is a good movie. … Once we have freed 2010 of the comparisons with Kubrick's masterpiece, what we are left with is a good-looking, sharp-edged, entertaining, exciting space opera.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
