The Black Hole (science fiction film retrospective).
The Black Hole is a 1979 science fiction film made by Disney under the direction of Gary Nelson. The exploration of the cosmos by the spaceship USS Palomino, which is almost finished, is nearly complete. Then the Palomino encounters a black hole just as it is about to return to Earth. In close proximity to the black hole lies what seems to be an abandoned and long-lost USS Cygnus. This is the same ship that one of the crew members’ father was on when it disappeared 20 years ago.
Maximilian Schell, Robert Forster, Joseph Bottoms, Yvette Mimieux, Anthony Perkins, and Ernest Borgnine feature in the movie; Roddy McDowall and Slim Pickens give the robots’ voices. John Barry was the chap who created the movie’s fine soundtrack. It had a $26 million budget, making it Disney’s most costly film to date at the time.
Many people felt that it was a complete and utter failure. But is it really? Is there anything about the movie you really liked? These are some of the questions that are discussed in this video.
