The Black Hole

I was re-watching Who’s Afraid of the Big Black Hole on YouTube and I got all nostalgic about the 1979 film The Black Hole. A couple of clicks on Google Play and I bought and watched it. Flippin’ awesome!

Considering this is 35 years old, it’s stood the test of time pretty well. There are certainly a few dodgy effects on show, but most of the film looks fine. This is post-Start Wars after all. There are some scenes where people can seemingly survive in space without spacesuits, but even that could be explained away based on the tech used by the main ship I guess. 🙂

We definitely need more space-based Sci Fi. Can I have Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and a new FireFly series please?

Cheers

  1. There is talk of a new Battlestar movie – not associated with Moore’s universe. Also, the British sci-fi classic series U.F.O. is supposed to be made into a movie… Let’s hope…

  2. Oh no no no no! *Shakes head in despair* I can’t agree Tim, one of the worst films I’ve ever watched. And, the worst thing was, the first year it was on TV at Christmas I made a big, big fuss about wanting to watch it and had to argue with my brother all day and sulk lots. I won, the whole family watched the film – and did not hear the last of it for over a decade! Eventually only I was in the room and I did not really want to see it to the end. Maybe it’s better in retrospect by I dare not risk it…

  3. I was about to add it to the list until I saw Martin’s comment – maybe I’ll judge by the trailer. Tim’s movie opinions usually match up with mine.

  4. I enjoyed both the “Who’s Afraid.. ” & The Black Hole Film !!! I did not exist on the earth when it was released :-). I’m glad to get this info from you !!! Thank you …. Nostalgic…hmm well, It reminds my father’s fun watching and explaining me with whom he went etc whenever I happen to see the Legend Sean Connery’s Bond films…It never bores me watching Sean’s and Pierce’s films…
    Happy Weekend !
