Likable but ultimately forgettable. It's something we've seen before but with better graphics. How come so many world landmarks are all next to each other? How come the Empire State building is the only one left standing? Why didn't he keep the Dog? None of these questions matter...

Say what you will about Tom Cruise but there‚??s no denying that his choice of projects have always been bankable. Throughout the 80‚?≤s and 90‚?≤s most of his films and performances were of a particularly high standard. The same could be said of the 00‚?≤s as well. However, over...

Joseph Kosinski's sci-fi adventure, Oblivion, keeps the story going.
The screen time is roughly 2 hours and it does feel that long. This is due to the pacing of the story which never rushes itself, yet never seems to come to a crawl. There is a high sense of mystery an...

While certainly derivative of many science fiction classics, Oblivion is also a visually stunning experience worthwhile because it puts ideas in place that make you think and isn't just a visual effects spectacle with wall to wall action. The best moments of this adventure are th...

Oblivion is a beautiful movie, and it's always good to see an original sci-fi film now and then. Unfortunately, its style only takes this post-apocalyptic journey so far. The film is hamstrung by characters that are as barren as the desolate landscapes they traverse, and the scie...

This is the kind of SciFi I like. I was even able to get over the lead being Tom Cruise!

Based around a graphic novel I've never heard of and that's because it doesn't actually exist, seemed to be a clever smokescreen to gather interest in the new film. So its just an independent sci-fi film then, but that's good no? well kinda, but then again the main star is Tom Cr...

"Oblivion," which has opened in theaters across the country yesterday, is not a good film. It's a thoroughly generic science fiction movie which follows Tom Cruise as a drone technician on post-apocalyptic Earth who finds out that everything he knows is wrong. If you've seen "The...

Oblivion is one of those Sci Fi films that is very ambitious in scope, but never really takes off. I found the film to be quite decent, but fell short of what it could have been. I really wanted to enjoy this, but I never thought that Oblivion was a great film. Along with After E...
