Separate names with a comma.

I see the artwork is out & about now so I wondered if this info had been announced or leaked yet.
I remember the anticipation to The Black Hole. It was supposed to be Disney's first adult, serious, science fiction film. What a joke that turned out to be! And, after waiting until the very end of the film, the actual black hole event turned out to be more like a replay of the Ave Maria sequence from Fantasia! Also, I've never understand why the dialogue is so poor. It sounds as though everyone re-dubbed their lines - perhaps they did.
Check this info out on August release. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...v=glance&s=dvd
What details...it's in color?
I'm hoping for Anamorphic widescreen too, of course, but no information is known at this point. When the DVD is put up on Disney's Movie Finder, then we will know.
I agree with Joshua I have searched every source, included are:
The Lasers Edge.com
Deep Discount DVD
I searched until I started hitting 1999 releases then I gave up. :whew:
The film has had a German DVD release from Disney for a few years and its in Anamorphic widescreen so hopefully Disney will release it the same in R1
There were two widescreen DVD releases a few years back on the Anchor Bay label. The first was missing the right front channel after Disney passed the wrong master on to Anchor Bay. The second release corrected that.
I now that they did make a sp/ed for LD but they killed it because Tron did not do will.
Awe shucks I just bought the "TRON" 20th anniversary 2 disc version to add to my old watched 'so' much disc, and now I find out it wasn't so popular. "The Black Hole" is the one I don't watch much at all, with the laughable robots it's too silly. :p)
I've got my fingers crossed for a nice new 16x9 transfer.
I think Disney will deliver. Though it's not the best movie in the world...that red hovering robot scared the CRAP out of me as a kid and I'm really looking forward to doing this review once I get the disc.
Ah yes, Maximillian. Scared the crap outta me too Dave! Now the movie is pretty silly... but I still enjoy it.
I've got the previous release (the one that came in a red keepcase)... I'll wait to see the specs before I double-dip.
This movie needs to have a great anamorphic widescreen print, expecially since the only thing it really has going for it is the incredible model work of the Cygnus ship. Wow, they don't build them like that anymore kiddies. The detail on this thing really far surpases any of the Star Destroyers from the Star Wars trilogy.
Yea, me too. Those blender blade hands scared the willies outta me.
I remember having the little record and read-along-book (remember those days -- they had them for Star Wars and Indy too). The film now is silly, but certainly holds appeal if you remember it from childhood.
The Robot was the best part of this movie by far.
My best friend's mom took me and him to see The Black Hole. I loved it. And Max & Bob were great robots! I'm not so sure I want to see it again. I think I'd rather treasure my warm feelings, unencumbered by mature re-evaluation
Just wanted to add my name to the "Maximillian totally creeped the hell out of me when I was younger" list we seem to have going. On the University of Tennessee, Knoxville campus, in one of the cafeterias (Presidential, if you know it) there was a "choose-a-music-video-to-be-played-on-the-tv's" kiosk/station that I swear, looked like it could be a great-grandson of Maximillian. I wouldn't go near the thing.
They should clean up the SFX ala Superman DC and also do complete wire removal for all the robots. It's very, very obvious they're "floating" on piano wire.
Now that the release date of August 3rd is creeping up, are there any more details about it? A review perhaps?
