Moon

Moon is the story of Sam Bell, the lone worker on a lunar mining base. Not only is he getting ready to go home after working in isolation for 3 years, he may be going crazy. Moon is a solid sci-fi psycho-thriller and I enjoyed watching the story, with all its mysteries, unfold. Sam Rockwell puts in a great performance. Unfortunately, the dramatic tension never seemed to increase and I found the story a bit flat. Even with its lack of high-tension I enjoyed Moon, and recommend it to sci-fi fans.

The Codfathers

The Codfathers: Lessons From the Atlantic Business Elite is a sometimes interesting, sometimes mundane look at the cadre of business leaders hailing from Atlantic Canada. Though competent, the writing did not jump off the page and much of the detail covered felt superficial. Writing aside, Codfather contains many interesting facts and presents a different perspective of Atlantic Canada than seen on the evening news. Though I can't whole heartedly recommend it, neither can I tell you to skip it.
