I've only seen 2001 all the way through one time and I just watched the edit so I'll try to compare what I remember as the main differences.

There are some shots of HAL in the dawn of man sequence for some reason.
Time on the space station is cut down to basically say that the next stop is the moon and that's it.

Other than that I honestly don't know what was changed and trimmed. I'm not sure what music was changed. There is this one song that mainly seems to just be a choir creating a sense of dread which I found to be extremely annoying but I'm not sure if that was in the original because I just don't remember.

All in all, 2001 is still has amazing special effects and it's still extremely boring for the most part, even when cut down to less than 2 hours. It's very memorable because HAL is such an interesting character, but when you sit down to watch it you remember that you don't actually like the movie.

Speak for yourself.

Going to have to watch this new cut at some point. Love that Soderbergh's doing fan edits.

Amen. I can see how, in 1968, this blew people's minds. But all I see is Frankenstein in Space sandwiched between hours of wankery. I had so much fun editing this movie.

Thank heavens I have Pulp Empire....
I do wonder if Kubrick were alive if he would have supported this like George Lucas

I wish someone would do an HD restoration of his Psychos edit.
I tried it but the scenes where the 2 movies merge became to much of headache.
Just an idea.
