Moon (2009)

So... I don't remember if there's a thread about this here, but has anyone seen Moon? As far as I am concerned son-of-Bowie (AKA Duncan Zowie Haywood Jones) made good. This really is one of the most fully realized and well written SF films that I have had the pleasure to experience. All that on a $5 million budget too. Look at it this way- given Avatar's budget, approximately 47 lovely little gems like this could technically be produced. Now, I haven't seen Avatar in it's entirety, (I have no desire to do so from what I have seen) but that sounds like a great bargain to me. In fact, I'd have no qualms about a 1:1 trade either.

Top notch writing, excellent performances all around, well-conceived and unobtrusively reused sets and on-the-dot art direction. What more can you ask for? How about a film that genuinely makes you laugh as well grit your teeth and glue you to the unfolding human drama? Not only that, but it is eminently believable in it's extrapolation.

Chalk up another on the list of things that I like, Jill.

Re: Moon (2009)

Well i thought it had a predictable plot . Still acting of Sam Rockwell was superb. I thought Casting Kevin Spacey was a bad choice. His voice is too recognizable to be taken seriously as a computer AI voice.

Whenever i heard him speak i pictured him sitting in studio chair reading from script pages.

I liked it but I'm sure everyone guessed what was happening. Good acting from Rockwell.

Re: Moon (2009)

I think Kevin Spacey's voice worked really well.

Also, the reveal was maybe predictable, but/and Sam Rockwell's acting was good.
