 about brickthrewglass

Brick threw glass is a Movie review website. Brick threw glass is a metaphor I made up for film, the BRICK is the anamorphic shot blocking, and GLASS is the camera lens , the word THREW is a play on words, should have been thru but, I used the words THREW. This website reviews and critics films in a different way,using humor it also tries to interject some of my technical knowledge of how films are created and made into the process.

 

image: titlte: no spoiler reviews
OK “We don’t do spoilers”; it’s my policy to be very vague about the story lines of the films I review here. I have always hated reading movie reviews that tell to much about a film. Entering a theater already having preconceived notions about the plot and / or the outcome of the film in the past have ruined the viewing experience for me,so this is why  these reviews are written this way .

Movie review Moon is a 2009 Science fiction

MOON  :: 2009 movie review  Moon is a 2009 Science fiction movie Directed by Duncan Jones and starring Sam Rockwell, about a man all alone on a lunar mining station. We meet Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) who is a man all alone on the moon, mining a new form of energy call helium-3 which was solved the world’s energy crisis.  He has a robot to keep him company named Gerty (voiced by Kevin Spacey), he then learns what’s really going on by chance and has to take steps to rectify it. This is a good not great film and since it’s All about Sam Bell, Sam Rockwell has to shine and he does. There is a back story and it works well to drive the plot, but it’s hard to have deep conversations between a robot and a solitary astronaut. Every time I hear Kevin Spacey’s voice I think of  Swimming with Sharks  and his character Buddy Ackerman but that’s just me, really if you think of that as the robot it’s really quite funny  But, really he is a good choose for this character and does great voiceovers to make it work and it does. He is just a few weeks out from his replacement arriving when strange things start to happen in his space station. He starts to see weird hallucinations and glitches in his transmissions back home, and then has a freak accident.

 

The director Duncan Jones aka Zowie Bowie son of famous singer David Bowie, made a decision to use models for the scenes of the moon rovers and space station. This works really well and gives the desired feel of a 70-80’s sci-fi films that are so well regarded by sci-fi fans over the years. This film is a little slow in parts as the plot development is employed. Overall this is a well made movie and it overcomes its slow starting pace to break away once the plot is revealed.
Moon was screened at NASA's Space Center Houston at the request of a professor there. The screening was part of a lecture series. "He'd been reading online that we'd done this film about Helium-3 mining and that's something that people at NASA are working on," says Jones. "We did a Q&A afterward. They asked me why the base looked so sturdy, like a bunker, and not like the kind of stuff they are designing that they are going to transport with them. I said 'Well, in the future I assume you won't want to continue carrying everything with you, you'll want to use the resources on the moon to build things' and a woman in the audience raised her hand and said, 'I'm actually working on something called Mooncrete, which is concrete that mixes lunar regolith and ice water from the moon's polar caps.'"
