Loved The Black Hole
Yeh, just watched it again a few weeks ago. I watch it every year or two. I hear a remake may come out in 2011 or 2012!
Argh, that's a classic not to be messed with. I remember how sad I was when Old Bob died, LOL.
Yeh, there's different opinions on it. Some liked those parts. My stance is that is that it should be remade into strictly an adult sci-fi movie, as it should have been originally. But it was Disneys first crack at Sci-fi. Bob was clearly an attempt to copy R2-D2 from Star Wars and I thought that part came off badly. Trying to make the movie "PG" for kids was the downfall of the movie, along with a few space blunders that today's audience wouldn't tolerate (such as people in space with no suits, etc.). Overall still very good and one of my all time favorites obviously. The special effects were excellent for 1979. The artistic rendering of the Cygnus, the black hole etc, really captures one's imagination and sets the stage for the eerie plot. The remake could explore the ending a little more (the end is very controversial too).
