movie so dull that I had completely forgotten I went to go see it earlier this year. I am not kidding.
Don't worry about spoilers here, this movie is so unmemorable that I don't remember enough about it to spoil anything.
A medical space vessel responds to a distress call and finds a lone stranded survivor and a strange artifact at a deserted mining colony. As the artifact gradual reveals its true form the true nature of the survivor also becomes apparent to the crew (although most audience members have it all figured out within minutes of meeting him). Meanwhile a vaguely-explained gravitational phenomenon threatens the ship (though this is later forgotten and never resolved) and lots of asses are shown during the important weightless-sex and changing-our-clothes scenes.
Angela Bassett does the best she can with a terrible script and corny dialogue, but even her character is not free of the story's inconsistencies and unresolved plot devices.
As for the Supernova, well, it shows up in the final seconds of the movie, does its thing, and then leaves an ambiguous ending where no one is really surf what has happened.
Plusses for Angela Bassett and the twist on faster-than-light travel, minuses on everything else.
