Joe versus the Volcano / The Moon Scene

There is something intangible lacking in Joe Versus the Volcano, something not quite right with the direction, that prevented it from being the classic film it could have been. There are parts of it that are so intelligent and beautiful, but it still seems off. Which is a shame, because it has a number of great scenes in it. This one struck me years ago and has stayed with me ever since.

I love Tom Hanks playing with the moon like a toy ball. But mostly I love how he stands up and says, “God, thank you for my life”. A great scene.
