\:\) I liked the way Sam Rockwell interacted with himself. While I think there was a lot more potential for the story, I wasn't bored like you were. The interactions with the AI were pretty ho-hum for sci-fi, and the entire premise was a little ridiculous as far as feasibility and potential backlash over how the moon base is operated, but I still enjoyed it despite all that, and I want to see where they take the story from here. I hope they can ramp up into some more inventive sci-fi for the next outing, but I'm not going to beat up this first one when I simply found it enjoyable. It's like you just mentioned about how you knew how Ponyo was going to end, but you still liked that. Some things just work for you, no matter the criticisms you may have for it.
