    I checked out this mostly forgotten sci-fi/horror film and it's not half bad. At times you can detect the lack of direction (Walter Hill walked out), but it's got an interesting cast and some very memorable moments.

    Unlike those that recently saw this motion picture via the new Scream Factory Blu (I wish I could see the half hour documentary on the disc about the disastrous production of this movie); rather I saw it last night via the MGMHD channel. I had never seen this movie before-the toxic buzz scared me away-but after seeing some people I know recently talk about it here and elsewhere I figured now was the time to check it out. I had…

    An emergency rescue ship receives a call from a mining base on a moon several light years distant. They jump to the moon, rescue the one person left alive, and plan to transport him to safety. We soon discover he has brought on board an alien artifact, and that he is no longer completely human, in a story that becomes a cross between ALIEN and THE TERMINATOR. In a series of interviews included on the new Blu-ray release with cast…

    Quite the production troubles surrounded what would become Supernova, originating as a tight 'suspense in space' script before going through numerous drafts until it plopped into the lap of Walter Hill, keen to dip his toe into science fiction and work with James Spader. The result was a film MGM attempted to test screen without effects, and when they received negative feedback Hill asked for costly reshoots and walked when they refused, subsequently taking his name off the picture -…

    All the behind the scenes drama of multiple directors, editors and a post-production nightmare is evident in the opening scenes of Supernova. You'll know right away that the thing is going to be an absolute mess, because it looks like one and feels like one, regardless of if you're aware of the production history or not. At its core there is a remnant of a decent idea, but the film itself is just a trainwreck. James Spader's quiet, smarmy…

    Watched the Scream Factory bluray. Hadnt seen this since it first came out. While I dont think its as bad as its reputation, its not too good either. Its a watchable mess. Its glaringly obvious when you are watching it that it was edited to hell. Some scenes barely make sense and you can tell its barely pieced together. I also watched the Making Of doc which goes over all the problems in the making of it. The original idea…

    This film is a big space mess, but it somehow remains slightly watchable, all these years later. It's dumb, the first half is a jumbled mess, and Robert Forster leaves the film too soon.

    I spent 91 minutes watching this

    Ninety-one minutes

    That's a whole hour and thirty-one minutes of my life that I spent watching this film

    That's 5, 460 seconds

    of my life

    that I spent

    on this film

    as opposed to something more useful like,

    watching paint dry


    writing a badly formatted review

    such as this one.

    Ninety-one minutes.

    A solidly watchable science fiction film that feels flat in the final analysis, "Supernova" offers recognizable plot beats, a competent production, a sturdy cast, but little spirit. Focusing on a medical vessel that takes on a passenger who is more than what he seems, the film generates the standard stranger-among-us plot but rarely takes that plot in new directions. The film is never overly derivative, but it is not satisfyingly developed, either.

    James Spader, Angel Bassett, Robin Tunney, and other…

    A ver , es una pelí, bastante mala. Lo mires por donde lo mires, pero como está ambientada en el espacio.. pues bueno tiene algo. Cuando no tienes absolutamente nada mas que hacer, no está mal, pero vamos, tampoco la recomiendo.

    James Spader in space. It's an OK watch but I feel they could have done *so* much more with it.
