Last Week’s MM: The Future Chronicles
I’m sure that you’ve heard of a lot of bad scifi movies. Lucy comes to mind. Could have been good, but, eh, wasn’t developed enough. Same with Snowpeircer. And I read and heard such bad reviews about Automata that I didn’t even give it a chance. They have a lot in common: Big names, great concepts, not the best delivery.
Can you even imagine how many truly awful scifi films are made that you never hear of? It’s a lot, I’m sure.
But the other day, my fella showed me a movie called Moon. It was released in 2009, got great reviews, and stared Sam Rockwell and the voice of Kevin Spacey. I thought it was so strange that I had never heard of it.
We watched it. I looked at a trailer prior to watching, and the trailer gave away a little too much. But, all in all, I think it was a good movie. I’ve been into space stuff lately: Interstellar, Gravity, The Martian… so this was right in that vein.
Makes me wonder if there is any other good scifi out there that I’ve never heard of. I’d bet there is. Got any recommendations? Let me know.
