Anchor Bay's DVD of The Black Hole does a fine job of resurrecting this cult favorite for a new audience. This two-sided disc offers the film in both full-frame and widescreen transfers. Both suffer from the occasional bit of speckling around reel changes, but they also offer a sharp, vibrantly colorful transfer that is a monumental improvement on Buena Vista's atrocious original video transfer of this title. One minor caveat with the widescreen transfer: it lacks anamorphic enhancement for widescreen televisions. However, it's 2.35:1 aspect ratio fully restores the film's impressive sense of scope to its full glory. In terms of audio, the disc offers a crystal-clear Dolby Digital 5.1 remix that allows The Black Hole's soundtrack (especially its magnificent John Barry score) to live up to the punch of the film's visuals. Extras are limited to the film's original theatrical trailer and a slide show that includes stills, poster art, and the occasional conceptual design sketch. The widescreen side of The Black Hole disc also restores an overture to the film that hasn't been seen since its theatrical run. All in all, The Black Hole is an impressive looking and sounding DVD that offers the best way to see this film in a home theater format.

A Surprise ending.

I was unusually Entertained the first time that i had seen This very Unique Movie. The movie takes place in space and concludes into an unexpected unknown.
I really liked the film...and not wanting to prematurely explain the story's ending.
I had liked the character's development in the film...with a few questionable squirmishes.
The film's history in it's making is also interesting...making for an interesting special features video.
