Well it's a holiday weekend and in an effort to work less on this week's column I probably ended up doing more work... whatever. I hope you enjoy the end result.
I don't really understand why people feel the need to compare a small budgeted film about one man's personal struggle with isolation on a space station with a massive action film about giant robots fighting each other simply because they are both sort of in the same genre. But then again I also don't see how a film featuring a fairly big movie star, an academy award winning actor, and directed by the son of one of the biggest rock stars of all time can be considered "independent" just because they slowly release it only in theaters where the seats are at least 30 years old. In any case, the folks marketing "Moon" have caught on to the counter programing buzz and are rolling with it as you can see from this new ad.
