Moon (2009)
Very good Sci - Fi about energy renewal using resources on the moon.
  The AI Computer voiced by Kevin Spacey,starring Sam Rockwell.
Unusual twist,not what i thought it was going to be. 10/10

Been looking forward to seeing Moon, actually.

I recently watched World's Greatest Dad starring Robin Williams and written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait which is funny in places and bent-up in other places (with Bobcat involved why am I not surprised?).

Robin Williams is an aspiring (but terminally rejected) writer and a school teacher whose wife recently passed away.

His bottom son also attends the school where he teaches. Everyone at the school hates him, with good reason. The kid is an out-and-out foul-mouthed, totally disinterested, deviant, spending most of his time looking at porn on the internet or talking about porn on the internet. He even engages in auto-erotic asphyxiation!

It's not a great movie, but it's not terrible either. It is a very dark comedy tho'...

We did a write up on this movie a couple of months ago Jack, dont know if you had a chance to read it or not? I thought it was a VERY good movie. And Bobcat shown through with flying colors. I think the majority agreed with your evaluation though.

Just watched a clip. The only thing I can speculate on is if the ending is as obvious as it appears then I dont want to see it. PLEASE, everyone else watch it and then post whether my guess is true to form. If not, then Im there!!!

No, I didn't see the earlier write-up, sorry...  :-[

And my evaluation was that I liked it for the most part, but it was really bent-up in places.

Is that what everyone else thought?

Hope you like dark comedy!  :D

Well since im not telepathic,i don't know how you think it ends.
Besides,it's not just the destination,it's the journey.

And here I thought posting that info would help......Looks as if you even quoted it in a post?
 
 
I agree with The Hitcher! In its day it was an incredible movie.

Oh yeah,,
The remake wasnt that great though.
If you like Rutger Hauer,, youd like him in Blind Fury from back in 1987
 Check it out, youll be pleasantly surprised.

Given the movies she cited (Jacob's Ladder, Sixth Sense) I think she's assuming that the upshot of the flick is that the main character is dead or has been dying for he entire film and that that is only revealed at the end.
