    Just watched this movie "Moon" last night about an astronaut that has been manning a space station on the moon for 3 years. With just 3 weeks left things get a little haywire.
    At the very beginning of the film the actor was remarking to people back on Earth about watching a football game that "almost seemed in real time". A bit later you can see a Tennessee Titans poster on the wall above his bed.
    So I was eager to find out if it was just random or planned. I seen on IMDB that the Writer/Director is Duncan Jones and he's British. Then I see that he's David Bowie's son! Still, nothing added up. Finally i found an interview that said he went to graduate school at Vanderbilt and this is what he said when asked about the Titans poster.
    "“When I was at Vanderbilt, the stadium was in the process of being built, so I missed the Titans actually playing in Nashville,” Jones said. “So for me there was always something slightly futuristic about the idea of the Tennessee Titans. That was my little homage to Nashville.”
    The whole article is here. http://sitemason.vanderbilt.edu/news/campusnews/2009/07/31/shoot-for-the-moon.85641
    I recommend supporting this guy by seeing this film. I loved it. It's got an 8.1/10 on IMDB and has won 10 Film Festival Awards. It stars Sam Rockwell and Kevin Spacy.

    I just wanted to add my voice to those that enjoyed this film. It's a great little piece of sci-fi storytelling. Sam Rockwell is flat out awesome in this role. I loved the Titans shout-out.
