Movie: Moon

I went and saw “Moon” this weekend. Pretty cool movie. I didn’t know anything about it before I went (we were looking for a movie, and didn’t have an internet connection). It’s probably better to go in knowing very little about it – because you don’t have any real knowledge of what’s going to happen in the movie.

Here’s the quick rundown – only stuff you find out in the beginning of the movie, without spoilers – Sam Bell is working alone on a Moon base for a Lunar Industries. His only friend is an Artificial Intelligence (“Gerty”, voiced by Kevin Spacey). They harvest He3 and send it back to earth for fusion power. He makes sure everything is running smoothly, and attends to the harvesters. He’s nearing the end of his 3-year contract, and he’ll head back to earth. Then things start to get weird; he starts to hallucinate.

Verdict: A very good sci-fi movie. Two Thumbs Up.
(And RottenTomatos, which aggregates movie review ratings, is giving it 91%.)
