Saw "Moon" at the Regent Square theater with a bunch of people. The plot was a little holey, but I liked the acting and pacing, and Kevin Spacey as Voice of Ominous Smiley-Face Robot. I recommend avoiding seeing the spoilertrailer if you can. (7/10)

Moon looked like the first good scifi movie in a while. I don't know if it'll get released here in France though.

Dunno, I wouldn't say that it really stood out as a good scifi movie, just a passably enjoyable movie. Which is kind of weird, because it really is undeniably scifi, the whole plot hinges on the very scifi-ish premise, but I feel like it didn't do the scifi thing well, it just did the movie thing well while happening to be in the future, on the moon, etc.

understood, but I think this is about all you can expect out of scifi nowadays. It's a woefully misdone genre (esp. by Hollywood) in recent years.
