Rewatching "The Black Hole" at 2:00 in the AM...

You know, no matter how much this movie sucks, I still love it. Terrible
script, mediocre SFX (even for 1979), and acting that is almost painful in
its hamminess. But I have to watch it every few months, just to remind myself
of what it felt like to be a kid (yes, I know this is GAY ($1)).

I will say this, though: the soundtrack is wonderful. Very atmospheric, and
perfectly appropriate to the action and tone of the film.

I'll have to watch Tron again sometime soon.

Agreed on TBH. I watched it a few times last year on digital cable. Loved it
as a kid, enjoyed still as a quasi-***.

Maximillian Schell rules, and his little henchman robot rocks. I love the
scene at the end when you see the evil robot (ironically named) lording over
some hellish looking underworld. Creepy imagery!

Music is interesting, Yvette Mimeux was a hottie in her prime (although
she's much hawter in The Time Machine), and Perkins is worth it, too.

Just say no to Tron, though. That video arcade game was enough!

I used to love whistling like Bubo the Owl, though.

It is a fact of the universe that Stanford sucks.
