02.24.18 MuteDuncan JonesTechno-noir in the Moon universe. I guess I'm getting more and more disconnected with society because I thought this was a pretty solid movie and enjoyed myself throughout then i check the imdb rating and see 5.4. I do a search for Marion Skene, one of the people to whom the movie is dedicated, and see a bad review in Variety. I don't quite get it. I mean the story isn't like some complete new thing that nobody's ever seen before, but neither is fucking Black Panther and everyone's going apeshit for that. The visuals are great, the design is great, the music is great, the performances are good, the story fits the mold for a noir and is suitably hard to follow. It's an interesting world that he builds, fun little tie-ins to Moon, decent tension, and you get to see Paul Rudd try and be a heavy. Justin Theroux is much better at it but still, not bad! I don't know about the rest of the world, but I liked this.
