The next "Moon"? IMDB says 5 mil budget, and an interesting topic.
Came out of nowhere, releases in a couple of weeks, 9/2.

Unlike "Moon" though this seems to be a scifi horror film with less of an intellectual aspect. I'll wait for the reviews first before I decide to see it in the theatre.

I am sure the professional and amateur nit pickers will find plenty to complain about, but it looks like a fun movie.

I just meant in terms of being low budget but actually hearing about it and finding it interesting. Honestly, I wouldn't have seen Moon in the theater either, but then I rarely get to see anything in the theater these days. LOL
Movies like this get more leeway than big budget Skyline movies.

I guess "big budget" is a relative term since according to boxofficemojo, the budget for "Skyline" was 10 million which is very modest for a theatrical release.

If this is as good as Skyline for half the money.....no, it would still suck I guess.

Nitpicking like "there is no way a Saturn 5 could've launched an entire Apollo CM/SM/lander combo to the Moon in secret"?

Get past that and I suppose it might be an ok film.

Yes, that is nit picking.

Of course a Sat V could never have been launched in secret. But just as unlikely to me is the idea of a bar filled with freakish looking aliens from all over the universe drinking, talking, playing music together. But I liked Star Wars anyway.

But you didn't like the twist in "Unknown" so there must be some nitpicking that you accept.
