12. February 24, 2010 - Moon (2009)

This movie is creepy and totally fascinating. Sam Rockwell is an employee of an energy company that, in the near future, mines a new element from the surface of the moon. He's all alone on his moon base for three years, with no one but a Kevin Spacey-voiced robot for company. Needless to say, he starts going crazy. Or does he? It's not so much the answer that's fascinating - it's the way they go about showing you. They don't wait to pull the twist until the end - instead, it's in the middle and poor Sam Rockwell is left to figure out what the hell he's supposed to do now. I was afraid that it would be boring since it's just one actor and a robot, but it's definitely not.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
