Moon was a much needed antidote to seeing Transformers 2. An excellent piece of Indie sci-fi, Moon evokes the feel of classic cerebral sci-fi like 2001, Solaris, Alien, and Silent Running (I've heard that several Silent Running SFX crew were brought on to help Moon capture that classic style). While its pacing and small scale won't appeal to most post-MTV viewers, I found it quite compelling. Made for only $5million, it's also a testament to the fact that you can make a great film for "hardly any money." If you enjoy thoughtful, slow-paced Sci-Fi, I highly recommend checking out Moon.
