    it's been a while, but it was roughly: he was programmed to be completely honest and open with everyone, but he was ordered by the nasa people to not tell the crew the real purpose of the mission.  this was a contradiction, which HAL decided to resolve by getting rid of the crew.

    I never get why people feel the need to "understand" this movie

    I mean, you can, but why? It's better when you don't understand it.

    For once, or maybe twice, I was in my prime.
    Explanation: The black monoliths were put in place by aliens in order to spark evolutionary changes—they wanted to ensure that other species rose to their same level of intelligence as them. 

    In the prehistoric past, the monolith influenced humanity's ape ancestors to start using tools. When humanity mastered space travel, they discovered the monolith on the moon—at which point it directed them towards the final monolith orbiting Saturn / Jupiter (I don't remember, and I think it differed between the book and the movie). The thing with HAL happened on the trip out, simultaneously the most comprehensible and least relevant part of the whole story. The final monolith activated a stargate, transporting Dave to the aliens' home. The aliens tried to make a space for Dave that would feel familiar to him, but it just wound up being creepy and weird instead. Then Dave became a Starchild, the "next stage" of human evolution.

    Bowman is transported through interstellar space by the monolith before being slowly drained of his energy and identity before being remade as The Star Child, a being which can transport itself across space without any need for a space-faring mechanism, which then returns to Earth. It’s implied that this evolution guided by the monolith is the next stage for humanity, just as the monolith catalyzed the evolution of early apes into homo sapiens.

    It’s all in the novel. Honestly, 2001 is one of the most straightforward stories ever. All of the answers and explanations are right there in Arthur C. Clarke’s novel

    By the way, if you're wondering about how the Stargate effect was made: linked because Vanilla hates me

    After 2001, everyone and their dog had a slit-scan rig like this. Abel hooked theirs up to a minicomputer, and did some things that looked very much like they could have been done on an Amiga 10-15 years later. A bigger version that could do tilt and such was what R/GA used for the credits on Superman.
