Not sold on this as it stars "The Douche," but it does look interesting.

Already sold on this since one of best actors of our time is the lead. And god mr. Kosinski does know how to make the film look gorgeous.

I hope you're not talking about Tom Cruise because he is far far far from it. He may have had a weird year in there but who hasn't plus he came out and basically apologized for it all. A douche is someone who thinks himself to be above everyone else and Cruise is far from it, everytime he is talking, he is praising someone or an idea someone had.

Yeah I don't get the hate. I like Tom Cruise. Sure he might do some odd stuff, but that wont keep me from enjoying his work.

Tom Cruise hate is old hat at this point. And I'm not even a fan of the man's work.

I'm a huge fan of the actor Cruise. Seriously, how can one see him in stuff like Magnolia, Born on the Fourth of July, Eyes Wide Shut etc and say he is a mediocre actor?

Anyway, I've read some reviews of this now and they sound like my expectations for the movie. Mostly good and laced with fantastic visuals and music.

A review...

http://twitchfilm.com/2013/04/review...fi-flicks.html

Quote:
Taken on its own, Oblivion is a wholly watchable and oftentimes entertaining sci-fi action adventure that looks and sounds incredible on the big screen (even if Anthony Gonzalez and M83's score frequently recalls Hans Zimmer's music from Inception). However, the script is poorly written, with a few of its most integral explanations either dumped into expository speeches or skipped entirely, while all its best ideas come from the work of Andrei Tarkovsky, the Wachowskis and Duncan Jones. If that's unimportant, then Oblivion will feed your clearly starved science fiction appetite. For the rest of us, this is spectacle over substance and, at times, embarrassingly familiar.

Another review

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/04/...g-cool-review/

Quote:
I’ve heard quite a bit of negative buzz about Oblivion. Having now seen it myself I can’t, for the life of me, work out why. I really liked this one.

It isn’t, I’ll concede, the most wildly original film. It’s more like a DJ mix than a symphony. Elements of The Matrix, Moon, 2001, the first Star Trek picture, Independence Day, the Death Star run from Star Wars and yes Wall-E all bubble to the surface at one point or another. But for sheer relentless action Oblivion is as good as a modern sci-fi movie gets.
....
There’s always a bit of science fudging in science fiction films, otherwise most of the stories would collapse, but Oblivion’s science holds up better than most. Except maybe for the suggestion that mankind set off on a trip to the outer Solar System in 2017. I doubt if NASA will be able to afford a flight to Marbella for a few decades yet.

For me, Oblivion’s a winner. In almost exactly the same way that The Matrix was a winner in 1999 before those sequels came along and tarnished its memory.

I don’t think Oblivion will sprawl out into trilogy territory. Not because it isn’t good but because it’s a neat, self-contained story.

A stand alone sci-fi movie that isn’t in 3D? Now there’s something that doesn’t come along every day. Ignore the buzz. Give it a go.

No, but thanks for the link. Can't wait. Just like TL's soundtrack was very reminiscent of Inception, Oblivion's is very reminiscent of the Dark Knight Trilogy. Not that it's a bad thing.

I thought so too (especially TDKR tracks).

Anyone else liked the original (?) song ("Oblivion") in the OST? Been listening to it on repeat.

I'll never understand the love Duncan Jones gets from critics. Moon damn near put me to sleep and Source Code wasn't half as clever as it tried to be.
