The Black Hole

It’s always scary revisiting media that you loved as a kid, because most often than not, it hasn’t aged well. I have very fond memories of watching The Black Hole, and I’m happy to say that I still liked it when I watched it last night. The story is still creepy, and I like the way it’s told, and the designs of the world – except for Vincent, with those cartoony eyes, which really clash with the rest of the aesthetics. The John Barry soundtrack really shines – and I then remembered that I used to have it on vinyl, along with a Black Hole coloring book. After I watched it, I was doing a bit of reading on the film, and found out that there has been work done on a remake, which could be interesting, but I would much rather get something new, with the same sensibilities.
