Storyline

This promotional short for 2010: The Year We Make Contact (1984) shows moviegoers how some of the film's visual effects were created. This includes makeup for Keir Dullea's character, how the astronauts float in space, and the construction of the spaceship in which the astronauts carry out their mission. The vehicle is so large, the two largest sound stages on the MGM lot were used to construct it. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@verizon.net>

Good Featurette

2010: The Odyssey Continues (1984)

*** (out of 4)

This 17-minute featurette was produced to try and build up interest for the movie 2010 (here called 2010: ODYSSEY 2). The point of these shorts are to build up interest in the movie and for the most part I think this one here succeeds. With interviews with Peter Hyams, Syd Mead, Michael WEstmore, Albert Brenner, Roy Scheider, John Lithgow and Helen Mirren among others, one really gets a good idea of what they were trying to do. As a die-hard Kubrick fans I thought the funniest moment happened when they talked about him destroying all the models, blue prints and other things from 2001 because he was worried they'd pop up in other sci-fi movies. That certainly sounds like something the man would do. Other good bits talk come from writer-director Hyams who talks about adapting a story and trying to do justice to not only it but the person who wrote it. Arthur C. Clarke actually introduces this featurette as well. Fans of the movie will certainly want to watch this for all the behind-the-scenes footage, which there is plenty of.
