Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet's power problems.
In the fight, Sam says the words: "I'm a lover, not a fighter", a reference to Michael Jackson & Paul McCartney's song "The Girl Is Mine", which was borrowed off the Skeeter Davis song, "I'm A Lover (Not a Fighter)" from 1969
I hope life on Earth is everything you remember it to be.
When the rescue crew arrives, their spaceship lands partially on top of the lunar station. When second Sam launches his helium pod just a few seconds later, however, the whole station is visible and there is no spaceship on top of it.
The letters in the credits at the beginning of the movie, are sitting parallel to the surfaces that are shown and are also casting shadows/reflections on these surfaces.
