Sam Rockwell is the man. I defy you to look over his filmography and not like the acting he's done, regardless of what you think of the movie he was in. I first noticed him in Galaxy Quest. If you haven't seen it and are remotely interested in Star Trek or Star Wars, check it out. If you're not, still check it out.

Moon was directed by Duncan Jones. He's also known as David Bowie's son. He creates a fantastic looking movie for $5 million dollars. It's a small character piece about a man working solo on the moon. He has a 3 year contract that is up in 2 weeks. His only real daily communication is with Gerty (voiced by Kevin Spacey) the station's computer. Sadly, before he gets to go home, things start to happen. I don't want to give any more away.

I was definitely guessing what was going to happen next. Even when they let you know, you still feel that another twist is coming. This is good Science Fiction because it is regards to the setting, not the main focus. Yes, he's on the moon but it's really about a guy in isolation. I cannot recommend this one enough. If you're one of those people who goes to the theater and then decides what to see...if Moon is playing, just go.

Did you enjoy it?

Would you see it in theaters again?
Maybe. Now that I know it, I would be interested in seeing again to catch more details.

Would you rent it?

Would you buy it?

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
