  2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
I just watched '2001: A Space Odyssey,' and I didn't really understand what was happening.
Instead of trying to give my opinion of the what it means and what my idea of 2001's meaning in general is, I'd like to discuss the fact that the ending serves to leave the movie open-ended.
The beauty of 2001 is that the ending need not mean anything deep, it can just be a purely plot driven explanation and the entire movie can be viewed as an entertaining journey through space.

 SPACE.com -- SPECIAL REPORT: 2001 Leonid Meteor Shower
The 2001 Leonid meteor shower peaked early Sunday, Nov. 18 and was the best shooting star show in 35 years.
This Leonid fireball was caught on video by George Varros on Nov. 17, 2001, from Mount Airy, MD. The bright dot at the top is Jupiter.
Though not likely to rival the 1966 spectacle, the 2001 version of the Leonids may offer a meteor storm unlike anything since, with hundreds or even thousands of meteors -- on a per hour basis -- raining down at the busiest stretch.

 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) is a landmark, science fiction classic - and probably the best science-fiction film of all time about exploration of the unknown.
It was released, coincidentally, at the height of the space race between the USSR and the US.
Eons later, a similar monolith is discovered on the lunar surface in the 21st century, sending its signals to Jupiter.

 The High Weirdness Project: 2001 and Beyond the Infinite
The special effects are awesome, the cosmic story is an epic saga unequalled in film history, and Hal's death is one of the most dramatic scenes of all time.
I don't expect to change anyone's opinions of the film, and some of the theories I include may be considered silly or ridiculous or even completely erroneous by other authorities.
I simply want to make 2001 a little easier for people to understand, and the best way for me to do so is to tell the film the way I see it.
