The Black Hole: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

2018-04-16T13:00:52+00:00

I’ll say right off the bat that this is not exactly a classic. There are plot holes and stiff dialogue and the science definitely leans more towards fiction than fact. And there are some questionable robot designs. Despite that I recommend this film. It is a flawed gem. At [...]
