Welcome to Episode 62 of Reel Chat – a fun-filled and informative movies podcast that guarantees week in, week out – the “Reel world as we know it.”

On this new installment of our “Vintage Vault” retrospective series, Reel Chat closes out 2016 with an in-depth look at one of the best films you’ve never seen – Duncan Jones’ 2009 British Science Fiction Drama – “Moon.”

Your host Adam Stolfo is joined by Andrew McCaskill, Matthew O’Neill and the returning Penny Jelly to discuss a near future where science and technology have once again revolutionised the world, but where the human species’ morality is questioned under the guise of a tormented soul. “Moon” is quite simply one this generation’s – and history’s – finest examples of Science Fiction done absolutely right… and that demanded the “Reel Chat” treatment.

As a debut film for director Duncan Jones, this film succeeds admirably, and throughout the course of the episode the guys (and girl) examine Sam Rockwell’s impeccable performance, it’s use of practical special effects, it’s cinema inspirations, it’s impressive DVD and Blu-Ray release, as well as the captivating and emotional underscore of composer Clint Mansell.
