Do you remember the movie 2010? It’s a science fiction flick that deals with HAL 9000 the supercomputer and a big trip to Jupiter. It picks up where the movie 2001: A space Odyssey left off.
Now that it is 2010 for real, I think I’ll have to look at this movie again to see what they were thinking when that filmed it all those years ago. The web nugget wikipedia has a long list of differences between today and when the movie was made. There are plenty of interesting facts like how the Astrodome is referenced, the cold war is over, and other inconsistencies.
On another note, happy new year! Here’s to hoping there aren’t any HAL 9000 malfunctions this year.
