Both of these movies should have lost in the last round, in my opinion. The neo-noir Seven and the tech-noir Blade Runner are two of my favorites. I think 2001 is a better film than The Shining, even though I don't particularly enjoy either one. My favorite Kubrick movie is Dr. Strangelove, but that lost to Clockwork Orange. I can't win here.

A Space Odyssey is quite good, but The Shining is one of those kind of films I can keep on re-watching. :thumbup:

That's a very tough battle, but I'll go with 2001 A Space Odyssey.

That's one of the few movies I have not watched, but experienced. It went inside my mind. There's so much to analyse and read out of 2001 A Space Odyssey. The Shining is a masterpiece too though.

Wow, Kubrick vs. Kubrick? Toughie. I'll go with 2001: A Space Odyssey because it was more groundbreaking at the time of release than The Shining was. Plus, Kubrick's Shining isn't as good as the book. 2001 was every bit as good as the book.

How did it come to this you (Luhks) may not think much of these films but it is a tough choice for me The Shining scared me to death the first time I seen it *think redrum* But I have to vote for 2001 A Space Odyssey because of how awe insired of the special effects I was of the first time I seen it :cool:

2001.

Both great films but 2001 is much more subversive, ambitious and daring, which is what Kubrick was all about really (imnsho). :D
