"Oblivion" by Yojimbo

Yojimbo, FilmCrave
22 October 2014
  • Excerpt: A technician servicing the last outpost on a post-apocalyptic Earth recovers an escape pod dating from before the war which challenges everything he thought he knew about the world. As you can probably guess from the presence of Mr. Scientology, Oblivion is very much a mainstream sci-fi crowd pleaser, but thankfully it is done with enough reserve and intelligence to avoid the kinds of brain dead Bay-isms that plague modern cinema.

  • Summary: Okay when I went to go see this movie in the cinema they was people talking thought out the film and my dad told them to shut up. After devastating war that brought Earth on the brink of extinction, the remaining people are assigned to protect the last useful sources of energy. That is until a technician on the ground discovers something that changes everything he has been told. This movie had good visual effect's/tom cruise and Morgan freeman was good.

  • Summary: My passion for Western Movies lost out to Sci-Fi in the early 60s. Well, if you want to wallow in the goofiness and clichés of both highly abused genres without a speck of the po-faced seriosity that ruined Outland or Cowboys and Aliens, then saddle up! THRILL!...as a cast of recognizable faces chew up the scenery and their own careers with abandon! GASP!...as giant claymation scorpions stalk our heroes! LUST!...as a damn fine Bettie Page look-a-like cracks her whip!

Tom Cruise being Tom Cruise again.

  • Excerpt: I was very interested and was anticipating this movie, simply because of the director and because I wanted to give a Tom Cruise movie another shot... And no shots will ever be given again. I am tired of Tom Cruise. He made great movies in the nineties, with some pretty great performances attached to the movies, too. But ever since the last Mission: Impossible movie, he started playing the same character over and over again. Oblivion is no exception.

Oblivion review

Daniel Corleone, FilmCrave
2 August 2013
  • Excerpt: A film dominated by a great soundtrack, stunning visual effects and scenic locations. A case where style over substance is implemented. It's plot however and pace were questionable and dreary. The swift beginning about the background on Earth felt rushed and the story feels exhausting to follow. Obviously Tom Cruise shows an earnest portrayal but unfortunately the two ladies were uninteresting.

  • Summary: starring tom cruise this is a very good movie, i really enjoyed it and the ending. it has some good twists and keeps you guessing throughout .,, its very different to most movies which i liked, i guess you could argue it has a mad max/blade runner vibe about it but without actually being anything like those films, its one of those movies that is worth watching again. .

  • Summary: Why didn't i see this in theaters? Probably because it wasn't a sequel or remake. This is by far one of the best original sci-fi movies i have seen in a long time.

  • Summary: Featuring some really great visuals, a stylish soundtrack, and two really good lead performances from Tom Cruise and Andrea Riseborough, the first forty minutes were absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately, Oblivion includes a few too many predictable, unimportant, or borrowed plot twists that really made the film less satisfying than it could have been.

  • Summary: While Oblivion is perhaps the worst film I have seen this year thus far, it is still enjoyable and presents us a competent Sci-fi story that feels like it has been pulled from the 1970s full of twists and turns. Sometimes the film feels like its trying to be smarter than it is however, and I have never been too fond of Tom Cruise as an actor.
