Sci Fi milestones of the late 60's

The late 60's, to be precise the year 1968, gave us the two very important movies in the science fiction genre: The planet of apes and 2001: Space Odyssey.
I must admit I was a bit annoyed by the rather crude, inflexible ape masks in Planet of apes and an introductory part of 2001: Space Odyssey, playing with some highly dubious scientific premises (the pre-human hominids looking unconvincingly and living in the barren desert, hunting South American rain forest tapirs).
However, when I put aside these rather technical, minor flaws, the movies were spectacular and left a lasting impression on me.
