Moon – Fall

Movie – Good

This looked silly on the surface. It had no business being as great as it was. Patrick Wilson and Halle Berry play off each other perfectly, and John Bradley plays a perfect third wheel.

The special effects were gorgeous and just the right amount of insane, which I expected. I didn’t expect, however, how well they would pull off the story. I didn’t expect to care about the plot as much as I did. Disaster movies aren’t famous for making you care about the characters and the world that’s being destroyed. This film perfectly weaves in the peripheral characters and settings in a way that there are actually some stakes, which kept me on the edge of my seat and wholeheartedly along for this other-worldly ride from beginning to end.
