You are correct, call price movements typically correlate to movements of the underlying share price. Stocks will very low option liquidity & wide bid / ask spreads, like MHR, may appear to behave differently. I say 'appear' because, in the example you cite in your post, you probably would not have been able to sell the call for .6 (which I assume was the bid / ask midpoint?)

Generally speaking, yes, time value decreases as option expiration nears.
