Oblivion (Tom Cruise & Morgan Freeman)

quote:
A court martial sends a veteran soldier to a distant planet, where he is to destroy the remains of an alien race. The arrival of an unexpected traveler causes him to question what he knows about the planet, his mission, and himself.

[IMDB]


Sounds like it could be intriguing.

quote:
Director Joseph Kosinski helmed the visually astounding Tron Legacy. For Oblivion, Kosinki got the French electronic band M83 to bestow an ‘emotional and triumphant’ (Kosinsky) score on the film. The director has some experience of getting French electo bands to deliver awesome scores for his films: The cult band Daft Punk was responsible for the great Tron Legacy score.

Well, at least now Joseph Kosinski is freed up to begin active work on the next TRON movie, now that Disney has given the greenlight.

Good grief. Despite it's huge cast and budget this look like truly generic sci-fi. My money is this being 2013's John Carter. universally panned.

A new trailer with more Morgan Freeman and plot, supposedly. I think I'm gonna sit this one out, though, cuz I plan to actually see the movie...

There's something Cloud Atlas-y about this movie. And that's not a good thing, cuz that movie kinda sucked.

I see what you mean as far as the futuristic design, but it'll probably be nothing like Cloud Atlas in style or narrative.

I didn't think Cloud Atlas sucked, though. It was just... different.

The closest description I've read was comparing it to Wall-E.
Cruise is like the lone maintenance-repairman whose job is to service the drones that protect Earth's wastelands whilst the entire population lives in "cloud-cities".

Saw this last night in IMAX. It is basically a conglomeration of all the major science fiction films of the last 40 or 50 years or so (2001 a space oddyssey, the Matrix, Planet of the Apes, Moon, I am Legend, the Jetsons, lol, etc etc! ). But it's so extremely beautifully filmed that it completely obsorbs you. And as far as I'm concerned there's nothing really truly original in science fiction left to do, so mashing everything up is still acceptible when it's this well done.

And if you didn't watch the trailers (glad I didn't), you still be left guessing pretty much until the end. I liked it, but then again I'm a sucker for sci-fi. I recommend it.

(And an added bonus is that it was filmed largely in Iceland where the opening to Prometheus was filmed. I'm almost positive that I saw that very same waterfall. The whole movie is just gorgeous to look at, damn.)

Slowish moving but keeps you interested until somewhere between the 1/2 & 3/4th mark; then turns into a generic sci-fi drudgery where you can pretty much guess the end plot.

Not worth the price of admission, unless you get it at the cheap rate.
