What'd you guys think of "Moon" with sam rockwell?

I thought he gave an outstanding performance.  I was waiting for the twist...but it never came...i guess the 'lack' of a twist, WAS the twist!

I loved it. Its one of my favorite movies from last year. My only complaint is that it wasnt long enough. They should have added 15-20 minutes to the end and shown us what happens to him when he gets there.

I agree, one of the best movies I saw in 2009.  Not only does Rockwell put in a fantastic performance, but so does Spacey as 'Gerty'.  I haven't seen such an unemotionally emotional computer on screen in a while...

Great directorial debut from the son of David Bowie.

I agree wholeheaertedly, and this was probably my favorite film of 2009. Sam Rockwell is great, he really nails the role in all of its guises. Plus it has a neat ambient soundtrack from Clint Mansell (former lead singer of Pop Will Eat Itself one of my favorite bands), who also did the music Pi, Requiem For A Dream ect...ect...

This really brings back memories for me of some of the thinking Science Fiction of the 70s, Silent Running, THX-1138.

Between District 9, Avatar, and this 2009 was a good year for sci-fi.
