The Comic Critic Reviews "Moon"

I was truly shocked when Moon did not receive an Oscar nomination. The only reason I can think it didn’t get a nod is because nearly all of the film involves only one actor. And while that might sound dull initially, the story is far from boring. In fact, the story is riveting. If your instincts tell you that some parts of the film might set you squirming in your seat, your instincts would be right. This film joins other overlooked notable sci-fi movies, such as “Dark Star,” “A Boy and His Dog,” and “Silent Running,” as highly deserving of recognition as great films. If you haven’t seen Moon, or the other movies I mentioned as classics of the genre, you should put them on your must-see list.
