    Orren Pick: Moon

    Orren picks one for Golden: the 2009 indie sci-fi film Moon, the first film by Duncan Jones. Spoiler alert: it's an 11 year old film, so we discuss the entire movie. If you haven't seen it yet (and it's a masterpiece!) then please see it first, unless you truly don't care about spoilers!

    Golden picks one for Orren: the 2011 sci-fi thriller Source Code! It's a nine-year-old movie, so we're not as worried about spoilers, but in the end of the episode there are some serious spoilers; don't worry, we let you know in advance so you can avoid them if you want.
