A genuine thinking persons sci-fi film! (it's been a while),
This review is from: Moon [DVD]  (DVD)
I so enjoyed this at its (limited due to the average Harry Potter film) cinema release. Worth noting that despite the low budget it was made during the writers strike so despite the low budget it had some great people working on the visuals and sound and it looks and feels great. The music is also exceptional (by the requiem for a dream guy).
Sam Rockwell's acting performance is genuinely superb.
It's best to see this film without seeing any spoilers (like the 1 reveiw that has beaten me to it). There are no stunning new sci-fi ideas here (I haven't seen one for a long time) but it is so rare that a vision of the future is portrayed in such a human way, with character(s?) you genuinely like and care about. I was engrossed all the way through and genuinely moved.
I love sci-fi, I love the big budget lets blow s*** up sci-fi and I love the low budget thinking sci-fi, this falls into the later category and at 5th August it is the film I have enjoyed the most in 2009.
And my girlfriend liked it too!
