The Black Hole

Somehow my memories of The Black Hole are much fonder than, watching it now, the movie seems to merit. I had the novelization of the film on my bookshelf growing up, and read it repeatedly during my early teens. It was laced with photos from the film, so the imagery was all familiar during this viewing and the plot held no surprises. Though darker than Disney’s usual fare, it’s still pretty family-friendly, and has its fun moments, but I’d have a hard time recommending it to any but sci-fi buffs, alas.
