I thought this was a great movie that really makes you contemplate the issues. I highly recommend adding this to your Netflix Queue now!      Solid acting was performance by Rockwell, he deserves an Oscar nod for his performance of Sam.      SPOILER ALERT -- Please see the movie first before reading any further.      I liked the starting point, we have fixed the worlds energy crisis, we are now clean and green. Wow, I wonder if we can get …

Here's a funny thing: I had a moment of desperation towards the end of Act 2 where I thought it was going to fall apart. Everything was going well - tight dialog, well acted, interesting twists - and I could predict a cliche, see-it-all-before Hollywood ending that was going to destroy the film. I actually paused and opened a bottle of wine to numb the potential studio train wreck that was bound to happen. Yet bizarrely, the writers managed to take the film in a completely different direction in …

Not for everyone. Those expecting a SciFi adventure with lots of action and dumbed down dialogue will be disappointed. Instead, this is a slow, nuanced, quiet, powerful movie that features Sam Rockwell acting his butt off in every scene. The story goes in an interesting and unexpected direction, and if you stay with it, this movie will stay with you

Moon, Sam Rockwell
If you are fortunate enough to live in a city where this movie is playing, I highly advise that you go see it. Despite falling under the category of science-fiction, Moon is not a movie where you have to be a science-fiction buff to appreciate its many virtues. In fact, it might be more accurate to describe Moon as a drama. The drama in this case is to be found within oneself, as Moon is pretty much a one man show.      The movie begins with a commercial for Lunar Industries, …

If ever there were a debut with an elephant in the room this is it. And, here, it's an elephant which no-one seems to want to acknowledge: not the director, not the marketers, and curiously, not the critics: every review you see studiously and kindly and respectfully treats Duncan Jones as just any first-time feature film director. Yet everyone quietly wills him to do well, giving hopeful benefit of the doubt to a feature which, for about 30 minutes, looks to be a pretty mediocre sort of outing.   &n …

A masterpiece despite the predictable story. Rockwell gives stunning performances. The best film so far this year!!!

'Moon' was an undervalued film that I don't understand why more people did not watch it, preconceived ideas, most likely. Clones, computers!

Moon explores aspects of how people change over time, and the fundamental way in which we define ourselves, by following an astronaut isolated on a multiyear mission on the Moon.  Sam Rockwell does an amazing job playing different facets of the same character (minimal details to avoid spoilers).   As with Gattaca and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, this movie is old school science fiction -- using new technology and a different society to explore aspects of humanity that are …
