  1. I know I’m going to upset the conspiracy theorists out there, but the reason we never went back to the moon was that Prez Nixon cut the NASA budget because the only thing they found up there was dust and rocks. Sorry. No aliens. No fake moon landings. There was no second gunman on the grassy knoll. And Elvis really is dead.

  2. Honestly, I’m tired of the found footage angle already. I loved (LOVED) Cloverfield and I thought it was intelligently made and all that, but I really hope it just does the “found footage” angle either like District 9 or just in brief bits and then shows a more polished movie.

  3. Yep,
    There were further Apollo Missions that were supposed to happen, but after Apollo 17, commanded by
    Gene Gernan, which was very successful, the U.S Government pulled the plug on the Apollo Program.
    There were no Aliens. It was about money. This movie is terribly lame, and it’s quite clear that they are
    somehow involving a “Russian Element”, as you briefly see a Russian Lunar Module in one scene. Russia’s
    Lunar program never got off the ground, as their N1 rocket was a disaster and they never fully came up with a good LOR (Lunar Orbit Rendezvous) Program. I’m not going see this one…I’d much rather see a film on Apollo 11…now that would be something to see!
