    Pretty good sci-fi concepts and ideas, but executed poorly. Still worth seeing, if you're a sci-fi fan. Good special effects for its time. Cringe-worthy dialogue. Spader and Bassett are the only actors that hold this movie together. Their deep voices alone could make mediocre dialogue sound interesting. As for the rest of the actors, Robin Tunney was basically hired to show her ta-tas multiple times and cry on cue. Lou Diamond Phillips and Wilson Cruz also did their best with…

    It's boring, but has plenty of topless men with chiseled abs. So a bit like one of those Hollyoaks Hunks calendars then.

    I'll admit, this was pretty crap, but based on the ratings scale for it I was expecting something much crappier. I have seen comparable films far worse than this that have an overall higher rating average. Either way, this was a fairly typical 90's/early 2000's sci-fi affair that didn't bring anything new to the table, but still managed to be marginally enjoyable. My biggest takeaway from watching though, was the thought that Angela Bassett passed on X-Men, but thought this was a suitable gig.

    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 -…

    Woof.

    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.
