Re: Yet another "Memory Wall" post
Doe anyone else find those sets derivative of the interior of HAL 9000, with Kirk and Spock floating weightless in front of the memory wall, to boot?
It's funny you should say that. If you listen to the commentary track of the Directors Edition of TMP you will hear Special Photographic Effects Director Doug Trumbull
refer to that moment where Spock floats into Kirk's arms as "here is a '2001' moment", referring of course to the scene in "2001: A Space Odyssey" where Frank Poole is floating weightless in space as Dave Bowman tries to catch/capture Frank with the EVA Pod's mechanical arms.
