There are many movies related to the moon. Today I recommend ten movies related to the moon.
“Magic in the Moonlight” (2014)
Director: Woody Allen
Screenwriter: Woody Allen
Starring: Emma Stone, Colin Firth, Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver, Hamish Linklater, etc.
Plot: There are thousands of magicians in the world, but most of them are deceitful fraudsters.
And Stanley (Colin Firth) belongs to the group with real skills.
Although he is a British, he is very good at performing oriental magic.
While touring, Stanley also carried out the “Magic Anti-Counterfeiting” business, expelling the black sheep in the industry one by one.
One day, Stanley, who came to France, met a girl named Sophie (Emma Stone). Sophie claimed to be a psychic, able to communicate with the dead.
The unbelieving Stanley found Sophie was lying at a glance, so she became Stanley’s next “prey”.
I don’t know that as time goes by, the quirky Sophie gradually shakes Stanley’s will, and Stanley finds that he is actually fascinated by this mysterious girl…
Recommendation : Anti-counterfeiting teacher falls in love with female liar, typical Woody Allen-style love comedy.
The combination of Colin Firth and Emma Stone is very sparkling, and the two are also very suitable for the classic temperament of this film.
The night of the full moon is not only a time for werewolves to transform, but also a good time for lovers to talk about love.
Watching a relaxing romance movie during the Mid-Autumn Festival is obviously a good choice.
We don’t know if moonlight has magic power, but love really has magic power.
Director: Norman Jewison
Screenwriter: John Patrick Shanley
Starring: Cher, Nicolas Cage, Vincent Gardenia, Olympia Dukakis, Danny Aiello, etc.
Plot: There is an Italian family in Brooklyn, New York. Every night of the full moon, they seem to be enchanted and make some inexplicable actions.
Loretta Castorini (Cher) is the only daughter in the family, young and beautiful, and an accountant in the company.
Because his ex-husband was in a car accident, he became a widow.
One night, in the tavern, Loretta witnessed the tragedy of the breakup of the neighboring table, as if stimulated, decided to marry the 41-year-old bachelor Johnny.
She asked Johnny to propose marriage with her tail ring, and the knot was tied in full view.
However, because his mother was seriously ill, Johnny left New York and asked her to invite his younger brother Ronny (Nicolas Cage) to the wedding before leaving.
She went to see Ronny in the bakery, but Ronny was very excited when he heard the marriage, and he explained the reasons for objection.
She argued for reasons, but he would not listen at all.
Later, she invited him to be a guest at home, hoping that the brothers would clear up their previous suspicions, but she did not expect that after a fierce quarrel, the relationship between them had undergone a subtle change…
Recommendation: It seems that “a full moon night is more suitable for love” has reached a consensus in the West.
Cage and Cher were really young when they played this movie!
The beauty of the two big stars during their heydays is also worth reviewing.
“Over the Moon” (2020)
Director: Glen Keane, John Kahrs
Screenwriters: Audrey Wells, Jennifer Yee McDevitt, Alice Wu
Dubbing: Cathy Ang, Phillipa Soo, Robert G. Chiu, Ken Jeong, John Cho, etc.
Plot: The film tells the story of the little girl Fei Fei’s flying to the moon.
Fei Fei grew up listening to the love story between Change and Hou Yi told by her mother. She firmly believes that Change is the eternal embodiment of true love.
Fei Fei was hit hard when his father was about to remarry a few years after his mother died.
In order to defend his family and to prove to his father that Change is still waiting for Hou Yi on the moon unswervingly, and the eternal true love she represents is real, Fei Fei made a “rocket ship” by herself and started a section. Wonderful journey to the moon.
Recommendation: This movie is a bit special. The characters in the movie are a group of Chinese, and the creators behind the movie are a group of foreign filmmakers.
They tried to combine traditional Chinese myths with modern life, and the film was invested by Chinese film companies.
This mashup model gave us a new perspective on traditional myths. Who would have thought that Change would hold a concert in the moon palace?
“La Luna” (2011)
Director: Enrico Casarosa
Screenwriter: Enrico Casarosa
Voice: Krista Sheffler, Tony Fucile, Phil Sheridan
Plot: Under the deep blue night sky, in the middle of the quiet and deep sea, a small boat named “La Luna” is shaken.
Sitting on the boat were three generations of grandparents, grandpa with a long white beard, Kong Wu’s sturdy father, and a little boy with big clear eyes.
Grandpa gave his grandson a hat, which seemed to symbolize the beginning of some important ceremony.
For the boy, perhaps this is the proof that he has become a man.
Unknowingly, a full moon with milky white radiance rose from the sea, suspending the night sky.
Dad set up the ladder, and the boy climbed up with an anchor on his back.
It turns out that the shining stars are all over the surface of the moon. They pass through the universe and fall like meteors, decorating this beautiful asteroid…
Recommendation: I recommend this short film because its imagination of the moon is so beautiful!
After reading it, I just want to clean up on the moon.
“Despicable Me” (2010)
Director: Pierre Coffin, Chris Renaud
Screenwriters: Ken Daurio, Sergio Pablos, Cinco Paul
Dubbing: Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Julie Andrews, Will Arnett, etc.
Plot: The super villain Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) was dissatisfied with the emergence of new thieves after hearing the news that the Egyptian pyramids were stolen, and decided to build a rocket with the help of Dr. Nefario (voiced by Russell Brand) to steal the moon.
In the process of lending to the badass bank, the shrinking ray gun stolen by Gru was snatched by Vector (voiced by Jason Segel).
In order to regain the shrinking ray gun, Gru decided to adopt three orphans-Margo (voiced by Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (voiced by Dana Gaier) and Agnes (voiced by Elsie Fisher).
Then Gru took advantage of their chance of entering V Vector’s castle to sell biscuits to carry out the theft, and after the plan was successful, they would secretly dispose of the three children.
However, in ordinary daily dealings, Gru finds that he is increasingly inseparable from these three little ghosts, but this kind of affection will seriously affect the detailed plan of stealing the moon…
Recommendation: “Pick off the moon and give it to you!” This sentence is not a lie? !
In order to prove that he is a super villain, someone actually wants to steal the moon.
Of course such an evil plan cannot make it succeed!
In this movie, Minions, the king of movie derivatives, debuted for the first time.
Let’s review how Minions did tricks.

“Apollo 13” (1995)
Director: Ron Howard
Screenwriters: William Broyles Jr., Al Reinert, Jim Lovell, Jeffrey Kluger
Starring: Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon, Ed Harris, Gary Sinise, etc.
Plot: On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong, an American who was riding Apollo 11, successfully landed on the moon, taking a big step that is of great significance to mankind.
At the same time, senior astronaut Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks) and his relatives and friends closely followed this historic moment on TV.
Jim Lovell once flew near the moon on Apollo 8, and he also hopes to realize his dream of landing on the moon in his lifetime.
This moment came quickly, and just three months later, Jim Lovell was appointed as the commander of Apollo 13.
He will fly to the moon again with his partners Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) and Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon).
They were full of hope, but they didn’t expect to have infinite suffering waiting ahead…
Recommendation: In addition to Armstrong, who has always been in the annals of history, there are many heroes who have paid a lot to realize the dream of mankind to the moon.
“Apollo 13” tells the story of the most successful failure in the history of space exploration.
The film was nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture of the year, and it is one of the not-to-miss feature films about the moon landing.
“In the Shadow of the Moon” (2007)
Director: David Sington
Plot: The Apollo project broadened the horizons of mankind, let mankind truly realize the true face of the moon, and also led the aerospace industry into another field.
In order to remember this great moment, the British director seized the opportunity to find these astronauts and recorded their personal experiences and changes in their lives at that time.
Recommendation: To understand the true history of the moon landing, documentaries are undoubtedly more suitable than feature films.
The Apollo plan was launched in the 1960s to open up new areas for the aerospace industry and the world.
This documentary interviewed many astronauts who had personally landed on the moon, and left very precious images.
Director: Duncan Jones
Screenwriter: Duncan Jones, Nathan Parker
Starring: Sam Rockwell, Kevin Spacey, etc.
Plot: The story takes place in a not-so-distant future. Humans discovered a kind of rock on the back of the moon. It directly absorbs the energy of the sun and stores it as the gas helium-3.
In order to develop new resources, a company called “Lunar Giants” established a base on the moon to engage in ore mining.
Sam Bell is the only employee of this lunar base, and he is accompanied by only one robot, Gertie (voiced by Kevin Spacey).
In this lonely and long three years, Sam survived by looking forward to a happy life on the earth.
But when the contract was about to expire, something unusual happened.
In an accident, Sam rescued a human who looked exactly like himself. He gradually discovered the hidden secret behind this…
Recommendation: A complete one-man show, Sam Rockwell showed excellent acting skills in this movie before he won the Oscar trophy with “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing”.
I don’t know why, in the serious imagination of China and the West, the moon seems to be closely related to the word loneliness.
But there was at least Wu Gang in Chang’e’s yard who was cutting trees, but there was only one living person in “Moon”, and later this only living person…

“Iron Sky” (2012)
Director: Timo Vuorensola
Screenwriters: Johanna Sinisalo, Michael Kalesniko, Jarmo Puskala
Starring: Götz Otto, Julia Dietze, Christopher Kirby, Stephanie Paul, etc.
Plot: In 2018, the President of the United States once again launched the moon landing plan in order to win his election.
When the world’s first black astronaut James Washington (Christopher Kirby) and his companion set foot on the moon, he was hit by a bullet.
It turned out that as early as 1945, when the Nazis were about to be defeated, Nazi scientists made a huge breakthrough in anti-gravity research.
They sent a Nazi research force to the moon on a secret base in Antarctica and established a military base on the back of the moon.
There, Nazi scientists researched new technologies and improved weapons day and night in an attempt to re-establish troops on the moon and counterattack the earth.
After Washington was captured, the smartphone he carried was considered by Nazi scientists to be a key component to launch their ultimate spacecraft.
Therefore, the military officer in power Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) and his lover Renate Richter (Julia Dietze) asked to go to the earth to collect more mobile phones so that they could be used in the counterattack.
When Adler returned to Earth with Washington, all developments were different from what they planned, and a conspiracy plan unfolded…
Recommendation: Did the Nazis land on the moon in 1945? This brain hole is a bit big.
The Americans ran into the Nazis after landing on the moon. I wonder if the Nazis saw Chang E when they landed on the moon.
Director: Roland Emmerich
Screenwriters: Roland Emmerich, Spenser Cohen, Harald Kloser, etc.
Starring: Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, John C. Bradley, Kelly Yu, Michael Peña, etc.
Plot: The film tells that after the moon is knocked out of its natural orbit, it begins to rush towards the earth.
A group of mobs were dispatched by a team to complete an impossible task: reach the surface of the moon, uncover the secret behind the moon’s deviation, and save the earth at stake.
However, these people must first fight against an unknown and incredible force of mankind.
Patrick Wilson plays a disgraced former NASA astronaut whose last mission ended in failure.
He has clues to the imminent disaster, and Charlie Plummer plays his son.
Halle Berry plays the role of an astronaut-born director of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Her previous missions provided clues to this catastrophe.
Recommendation: This is a movie that has not yet been released. The film has been released in North America on February 4, 2022.
The first trailer for the film has been exposed, which seems to be very interesting.
As the director of disaster films such as “2012” and “The Day After Tomorrow”, Emmerich’s new works are still worth looking forward to.
