Moon

Postby Bigredhunk » Wed Jul 15, 2009 2:55 pm

Check this one out if you can. Sam Rockwell was outstanding. Very good movie. It's one of the best I've seen this year, although that's not saying a lot. Movies have sucked so far this year. Terrible summer. I've liked a few (*faves):

Taken*
The International
Crossing Over
The Great Buck Howard
State Of Play*
The Hangover
Whatever Works
Up*
Moon*

Sundance was supposed to get "Moon" Friday. Then they switched and listed "Food, Inc" for Friday. I saw "Moon" elsewhere this week. Now they're getting "Moon" this Friday and pushed "Food, Inc" to July 31st. Bummer, but "Moon" is a good one.

Did you think it was on par with "Borat?"

i actually enjoyed borat more as a segment on the ali g show and bruno more as a standalone movie. although i think both worked better as part of the show.

Agreed. Great to see a SF flick geared towards adults, not hyper-active 8 year old boys.

SF flick huh? It's not what I thought it was then.

Woulda been nice to see SR in a biopic on The Who drummer.

I think a good biopic of Keith Moon would almost have to be SF... :P

What does Bruno have to do with Moon?

Anyway, I saw Moon a few days ago and it was quite good. I keep seeing people compare it to Sunshine. I don't know why, as Moon is legitimate Science Fiction and Sunshine was more like sewer bilge.

TA, I think dep added "Bruno" to the post after I'd listed movies I'd liked and how movies have generally disappointed me this year. It's been a crap year so far.

I agree about "Sunshine." To me it tried to be two movies. Wasn't a fan.

This starts over at bargain Market Square today. Not sure why they're getting it now. Check it out of you like sci-fi.

It comes out on DVD in late Dec.
