I always thought black holes sucked things in, my brain doesn' t astronomy.

The gravity of a black hole is too strong for anything to escape.
Not even light can make it out.

Black holes are real, and they can move. We can observe black holes and the mark they leave on the rest of the universe. However, there is a point called the "event horizon", which is basically an area surrounding all of the black hole, where not even light can escape the gravity of the singularity, and nothing further can be observed.   
   
High school physics, people. Glad to see everyone has a diploma in these parts.

When a star meets a black hole, the star becomes somewhat self-conscious and blushes. The black hole notices this and grins, edging closer to the star.

"Hey," says the black hole, smiling innocently.

The star doesn't know what to do and stumbles on his words, "Hey."

Except this isn't actually what would happen. The star would get close to the black hole, and then appear to stop forever, because it's at the point where the light is moving just fast enough to not escape but not fast enough to escape. then the star would be sucked in and we don't know what happens after that. But this isn't what happens.

Sorry for the science lesson

you are correct, but only once something passes the point where the gravity well is pretty much infinite, also known as the event horizon. this star was approaching at an angle that at least part of it was outside the event horizon, true a chunk of that star would be forever trapped from our perspective approaching the middle of the black hole but the part that was outside of it would be ferociously torn apart like we see there. like when water goes down a drain it has some momentum so not all of it goes down the middle it loops around, but a black hole is like a mega drain, when the star gets close enough it accelerates very very quickly which gives it a lot of non-angular momentum, the laws of physics still apply to black holes but there are extra things that need to be considered.
