Keir & Gary :: 6 Reasons “2001: A Space Odyssey” Is The Most Important SciFi Film Of All Time
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

This video is from back in 2014, but Keir and Gary Lockwood (Frank Poole) talk to IGN about the reasons 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is the most important SciFi film of all time. I’d have to say I agree with eveything they say. It still galls me how everyone keeps saying the most important film was George Lucas’ 1977 Star Wars. It wasn’t. Star Wars always has been more of an adventure film, while it has science fiction elements to it, it is still largely based on the Saturday morning serials that touches tangentially on the Joseph Campbell mythos of A Hero With A Thousand Faces. But if we judge which film had the most impact on the science fiction genre on a whole, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is by far THE most important film bar none.

Press Scans :: July 2016 Australasia Empire – 50 Greatest Sci-Fi Moments
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

Along with the event images post before this one, I’ve added a new scan for the press section. This time it’s from the Australasia July 2016 edition of Empire magazine. Here they name their 50 greatest Sci-Fi moments. They chose as the number one greatest the HAL-9000 disconnection scene from 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. I’d have to say I completely agree with them. Their top ten was pretty impressive including the chestburster scene from Alien where Kane (John Hurt) gave bith, the Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) dying scene from Blade Runner, both films directed by Ridley Scott. Number 5 was the final scene at the end of Franklin J. Schaffner’s Planet of the Apes where George Taylor (Charleton Heston) and Nova (Linda Harrison) find the ruined Statue of Liberty on the beach. They also named the Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) “Get away from her you bitch!” scene from James Cameron’s Aliens. Considering how great 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is as a whole, I’m pretty impressed they chose the disconnection scene considering the stargate sequence, as well as the Dawn of Man opening and it’s iconic moment of the three million year jumpcut from the bone to the weapons platform. I’m including the write up in this post, but to see the scans, please click on any of the links below.

HAL SHUTS DOWN 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968)

There have been many other scary movie supercomputers: in 1965, just three years before Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, Jean-Luc Godard’s Alphaville saw the titular city ruled by a data-bastard called Alpha 60. But none have ever been able to upgrade to the heights of the psychotic HAL 9000. There’s his eerie lone red peeper, staring out like a robotic version of the Eye of Sauron. There’s his mellow but menacing voice, provided by Canadian actor Douglas Rain. And then there’s his unforgettable demise, as astronaut David Bowman (Keir Dullea) races to shut him down after he’s pressed “Power Off” on his human shipmate. It could have played out as an action scene, with HAL issuing dark threats and hurling obstacles. Instead, there’s a strange poignancy as he suffers the computer equivalent of a mental breakdown. “I’m afraid, Dave… Dave, my mind is going… I can feel it… I can feel it… My mind is going,” he monotones, pitifully, voice slowing like a pitched-down 12-inch. Then he sings a song: Daisy Bell, the 19th-century children’s rhyme IBM selected for one of its computers to croon as a demonstration in 1961. Set to a background of hissing oxygen, it’s a raw, intimate and surprisingly emotional moment. Not bad for a scene involving a box talking to a man in a helmet. It’s easy to imagine that when the machines fi nally take over Earth for real, this will be their go-to weepie.

I found this two part video on that bastion of video watching…. Yeah, you know. It’s a comparison between the Arthur C. Clarke book and Stanley Kubrick’s epic film. Enjoy.

“The Path” – E1X02 The Era of the Ladder Screencaps
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

Here are the screencaps from Keir’s small part in the second episode of THE PATH. His scene is mostly with star Hugh Dancy. Ironically the make up they are using for him reminds me very much of Keir from the final scenes in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY where Dave Bowman is beginning his ascension to Baby Bowman. I’d have to say Stanley Kubrick foretold Keir’s later years pretty good. I can’t say I liked Keir’s makeup in 2010: ODYSSEY TWO. It was too tick and gloppy. I liked the sleek nature of the makeup in the first film because it didn’t make him look so comical. If I recall correctly in the making of documentary from the BluRay of the second film, the makeup creator Michael Westmore said he got various parts of the makeup idea from his grandmother, and other sources. I think that’s ultimately where it failed. Not sure where Stuart Freeborn got his ideas from, but it make Keir look much more natural. Pretty much like he was looking into the future to THE PATH

“2010: The Year We Make Contact” Named One of the Under Appreciated Films of 1984
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

The title says it all. Recently the website DenofGeek compiled their list of the most under appreciated films of 1984. Included in that list were films like Repo Man, One Upon A Time In America, A Breed Apart, Brother From Another Planet and one other film from that year. Apparently they named 2010: THE YEAR WE MAKE CONTACT or ODYSSEY TWO as I call it as part of that list. They cited the fast paced directing of Peter Hyams and Roy Scheider (Dr. Heywood Floyd) as two of the main reasons the film is on that list. They also mention that the return of Keir as Dave Bowman and Douglas Rain as the voice of the HAL-9000. Read what they had to say on it.

2010

5. 2010: The Year We Make Contact

When this sci-fi sequel was announced, many wondered aloud: does 2001: A Space Odyssey really need a sequel? Director Peter Hyams doesn’t try to ape Stanley Kubrick’s style of filmmaking, and opts instead for a faster paced approach more akin to a Cold War thriller than a sci-fi meditation on life, the universe, and everything. Roy Scheider stars as Dr. Floyd, a scientist who investigates the discovery of life on Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons.

Hyams has a specific way of lighting and framing his movies that gives them an almost oppressive air of tension; where 2001’s spaceship interiors were bathed in light, 2010’s are dimly-lit and claustrophobic. It’s of a piece with Outland, Hyams’ underrated space western starring Sean Connery; cut off from society, blue skies and clean air, life in space is akin to a spell in prison.

The visual effects in 2010 were groundbreaking at the time, though less conspicuously so than those in 2001 – even then, audiences had become numbed to the sight of ships majestically orbiting planets – and they still hold up well today. With return appearances from Keir Dullea and Douglas Rain, the latter again providing the soothing voice of HAL, 2010’s far better than its tepid reception suggested.
