The Usual Suspects
The only negative thing about it is that when I watched it a second time--shortly after the first--it's actually boring. But if you wait 10 years to see it again, then it's back to being good again :)

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 …

Years later, this seems a little dated and it is hard to see how new and exciting it was for viewers. The acting by Kevin Spacey and Annette Benning is reliably excellent. But it seems as though there …

One of the first post modern movies of my time that assumed the intelligence of the audience. I watched it, put my mind back together, and played it again. I still watch it everytime it is on, and find …

Duncan Jones' psychological mind trip "Moon" is perhaps one of the most complex and original Science Fiction films to come out since Steven Soderbergh's "Solaris" and Christopher’s …

I liked it, but I came in with much higher expectations. The concept was unique and compelling but the movie felt either too short or too long. After finding about what the movie was about there were …

Smart, funny movie that carefully blends the comedy throughout. It is hard to believe that some of the most funny scenes are based on real events.

Moon is sci-fi in the order of 2001 A Space Odyssey, not Star Wars. It's great film to make you think.      I don't wanna give things away either.  I watched Moon not …

Initially, Moon might seem like a remake of 2001 - A Space Odyssey - it even has a HAL-like computer called Gerty - but it takes a different turn. In fact, after the first half-hour, Moon is more about …

Tries far too hard to be clever & quirky & just comes off as inane and weird. The acting is good, but the script & direction are weak.

Once in a while, and more frequently in this genre than most others it seems; a film comes along with a very modest budget (in this case $5M), a limited cast, and a whole lot of heart.  In the case …

There was a time when Science Fiction movies were about big ideas, not big explosions. The 1960's and 70's produced movies like 2001: A Space Odyssey, Silent Running, Solaris, and Dark Star. Moon, the …
