Some people would disagree and argue that because this movie had actual dialogue, it was better than the first.
Starring Roy Scheider(Jaws), John Lithgow(3rd Rock from the Sun), and Helen Mirren(The Queen), 2010 takes us back to those black slabs in space that create such a ruckus in our world.
These three characters, along with others from the Soviet Union and United States, travel to Jupiter to do some further studies.
Meanwhile, the two nations go to nuclear war.
What is it about these black things that bring about peace? And why is there a baby on the poster of this film?
Don't bother - this movie is a sleeper.
I mean, you can sleep through it.
