If Tom Cruise didn't do another movie for 200 years I'd be good with that.

So what's the plot of this movie?

The Earth was invaded by aliens, humans were forced to evacuate the planet, some time later Tom Cruise is sent back to collect shit only to find out there are still people on the planet and somehow he's being double crossed by the company he works for?

That's what I gathered. I gotta say I have just about zero desire to see this over some of the other trailers that have been coming out recently.

Oblivion's main story revolves around Cruise's efforts to thwart a fanatical cult known as the "Mythic Dawn" that plans to open the gates to a realm called "Oblivion".

There are lots of smaller plot lines - like one particularly fun scene where a crazy guy named Glarthir approaches Cruise in a city, paranoid that three people are plotting to kill him. He enlists Cruise's character to help him kill them - which Cruise does just because he's a bloodthirsty bastard - but then he double-crosses Glarthir and kills him, too!

Bet he got infamy points for that one.

This film is pretty ****ing terrible.

Possibly it was written as a metaphor for Tom Cruise himself: A spectacle on the outside, and devoid of soul or meaning on the inside.

The majority of the film feels like a Tom Cruise blowjob. Just empty mostly pointless scenes of him doing his signature Cruise moves. Things such as close up shots of his face as he stares off somewhere, nobody is quite sure where, of pointless shots of his chiseled physique in a shower, pointless sex scenes in a pool suspended in the clouds (somehow they aren't freezing to death), he does some somersaults, some diving from explosions while being misdirected midair by another explosion, some expert marksmanship, aviator glasses, motorcycle riding, etc.

This movie is a mountain of cliches or maybe an avalanche is more apropos, one that crushes you with the final scenes of the film. I cannot express to you the frustrations I felt while watching this movie. I hate that I spent money on this. It is my fault, I saw it on a whim today without having read any reviews. Big mistake, just like this movie itself.

All of this and I haven't even bitched about how terrible the settings are. The geography makes no sense whatsoever. It is literally nonsense. I understand suspension of belief/reality, but there are just obvious things that should not be done. And yes, one of the biggest cliches you can find in most apocalyptic films is the view of destroyed landmarks. This movie will not disappoint you if you like seeing the Statue of Liberty torch (some how) in pristine condition, yet it is in a valley of (I think) ice and rocks. Jesus this thing was awful.

Fine. I'm done venting. Now I'm going to watch The Third Man so I can try and forget this putrid piece of shit.

I thought it was decent. Interesting premise, a few plot twists that were hard to guess, good visual style, great sound (especially in the IMAX where I watched it). It's not a classic, but it was a good watch.

As for The Diminutive One, I don't know why he's so hated. Is it because of his whackjob antics and personal beliefs? I don't know. Why a guy like Travolta gets a pass, while Cruise doesn't, is mystifying. But I've always enjoyed Cruise in his roles; no matter what the role, be it "Top Gun", the "MI" films, "Oblivion", "War Of The Worlds", even "Rock Of Ages", he always does a solid job. Does he have a particular style? Sure. But at least he's good at what he does. He's sort of like Nicholas Cage, or Russell Crowe; he is what he is, and you can't expect him do be Sir Laurence Olivier. But there are a lot worse actors out there.

I may go see this tomorrow - one of my friends who saw it said it was worth seeing and I trust his judgment.

I too can separate Tom Cruise the actor from Tom Cruise the weirdo.

I didn't say he was terrible, and I understand having him in a film means you have to have all the things he has come to be known for. I enjoy him in certain films, but from start to finish I just couldn't enjoy this, and I went in wanting to love this. I love apocalyptic films, but this one just sort of lies there, never really interesting me or jarring me out of the boredom it forced me into. Beyond disappointed. I understand and respect your opinion, especially given your profession, but I will definitely not recommend this to anyone I know.

This is a pretty good description of what I am trying to say I suppose:

Quote:
A boldly rendered film with faulty nuts, bolts and wiring is still, at its core, a movie that doesn't work. Witness Oblivion.
I came across that on RT, but if you want to read more you can find it here. Obviously there will be spoilers if you read beyond the first paragraph.

I think an inherent problem with it, which had this effect, is the same problem "After Earth" will have, and "Cast Away" had: it's hard for a film with few characters to hold attention and effect.

this looks about the same as if someone that weighs 385lbs. were to take a post Krystal w/ cheese 12-pack dookie - only to charge you 13.00 to be hovered over them while it happened.
