I watched this recently. All the space stuff looked great. The opening scenes -- "The Dawn of Man" -- had the "drawback" one sometimes sees in hidef titles, in that it reveals a little too much. In this case, I was really aware that most of it was shot on a soundstage. You could really tell the backdrops were backdrops.

It was still great, though.

I wish all his movies were coming out on hd. No Strangelove. No Barry Lyndon.
