What did I just see?

If the goal was to create one of the most unpleasantly bizarre films in modern times, then I think the filmmakers will have accomplished that goal.

I actually think it looks pretty cool. As long as they keep tongue firmly planted in cheek, I'll be seeing it. At home of course. Got a Sky Captain / Mars Attacks vibe from the trailer.

This film just seems so wrong on every level.

Agreed.
If it is done right, this could a great time in the HT.

The Moon getting a bad rep these days from movie makers, this is the third movie in the last year or so that use it as something sinister. It's funny how that always works as far as the timing goes.

Waiting a long time for my NF copy to arrive, now I wish it hadn't.

This is a GREAT premise....it really is.

FWIW, the movie has high production values.
Sadly, it seems all of the budget went to that...minus the $4 that went to the script.
It wanted to be a Mars Attacks!, but it isn't anywhere near as funny (and it should have been).

I ejected at 1/2 hour.frown.gif

I liked it (available now on NF WI). It's a satire with very European humor. I cracked up at who POTUS was supposed to be. It sorta makes a nod to Dr. Strangelove.
