Clint Mansell, who scored the absolutely gorgeous score for The Fountain, did the music for Moon, which adds yet another reason why I'm really looking forward to this film.
It really is amazingly well done. It's the best film score I've heard in ages.

Overall, great special effects (note to Hollywood: please use miniatures more), great acting, and great atmosphere. Some of the twists are predictable but the movie keeps moving right along and doesn't wallow in them.

It's good to have thinking sci-fi back. Moon doesn't quite hit the mark but that's only because it's aiming so high.

I caught it a few hours ago and can't recommend it enough. If it's playing anywhere near you, seek it out.

Re: Moon -- actually going to be good?

I really enjoyed it. Yes, it does go on for about 10-15 minutes longer than it needs to, but I found the performance(s) to be fascinating.

I recommend it.

Re: Moon -- actually going to be good?

Want to talk about the movie itself, but trekbbs doesn't recognize spoiler tags, it seems-- is talking about the plot of the movie fair game in this thread?

Re: Moon -- actually going to be good?

When will it be out on DVD so I can actually watch it? Unless it hasn't already played in Tampa and will sometime in the future.
