Moon

Moon Movie Poster Moon Movie Poster

Astronaut Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stay on the Moon.

I watched a BBC interview on Duncan Jones and his movie Moon.
When I first watch the trailer some time ago, I knew it was going to be both amazing and ground braking (in a sense of disrupting the current trend of sci-fi movies). In Duncan's interview, he mentions how his movie was inspired by B sci-fi movies in the late 1970's to early 1980's. What a great vision! With all the mainstreamed sci-fi movies using CGI and affects out the wazoo, the best thing would be to go the other direction. This movie only had a budget of five million, and that's not a lot for a sci-fi flick.

Ducan has mainly produced music videos until this first full-length feature.
What I like most about the interview, is that he mentioned that he did this all without the help of his father David Bowie. I respect people that work off there own steam.

I am really looking forward to seeing this movie.
Check out the trailer.

Garbage Pail Kids

Adam Bomb Adam Bomb

You know and love them. From the iconic characters Adam Bomb and Messy Tessie, to Oliver Twisted. You can thank Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman for the idea, artist John Pound for illustrating the first run of the cards, establishing an iconic style and don't forget to thank them for those fond memories.

I remember my mom through my entire collection out one day when I was glancing at them. She said they were disgusting and I shouldn't be looking at things like that. Ever time I see a lot, or a mint Adam Bomb for sale, my remember sunny days sitting in my room with my binders open and laughing out loud. pist... I hid a few, don't tell.
