Eighteen months later, on a voyage to Jupiter, two astronauts, Bowman and Poole (Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood), run afoul of their ship’s man-made HAL 9000 computer, who tries to kill them.

B Movie Bingo: The Stabilizer
Cross out the squares to B-Movie cliches! Win prizes! THE STABILIZER (1984) Peter Goldson is a tough American agent sent around the world to stabilize unstable situations. He is sent to Jakarta, where a famous scientist who developed a Narcotics Detector has been kidnapped. Up against him is a drug smuggling ring run by his arch-enemy Greg Rainmaker, an evil drug lord who once killed Goldson’s fiancee with his spiked shoes. In a flashback the filmmakers tastefully show this, and while it’s happening you see a framed photo of Goldson on the wall, in a black net shirt posing with a gun. He looks like a cross between Sylvester Stallone and Brian May. Be on the lookout for actual consumption of live reptiles, and weird editing decisions during the climax of the film. Directed by Arizal.
