Black holes? I'm outta here, yo!

To commemrate the activiation of the Large Hadron Collider on the France-Switzerland border - not to mention concerns by some scientists that attempting to duplicate atomic-level events from the big bang could create a black hole that would swallow the earth - I was going to post a list of some of the best black hole movies ever.

Thing of it is, and maybe it's because I haven't had enough coffee yet, I can only think of two: Disney's The Black Hole (1979), a piece of early-1980s cable-TV high weirdness, long lost to us hopeless men-children, at least right now, and the mostly useless Event Horizon (1997). And that's it.

Little help?

I was going to suggest Event Horizon, but I remembered it being more of a Worm Hole than a Black Hole. I still need to learn my holes.
Truth is, I don't think there's many movies that have dealt with Black Holes. Certainly talked about in a space-like context, but never showing one on-screen as a sort of plot marker. I think we've found the new trend for Hollywood to exploit!

That giant POS called No Country for Old Men might as well be a black hole movie. Ha! Yeah, I said it!
