Movie Review: Oblivion

Movie: Oblivion
Genre: Science Fiction
Starring: Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman
Rating: PG-13
My Rating: Two thumbs up

I loved the trailers for this movie. It looked like a wonderful, crazy, twisted post apocalyptic tale. And who doesn't love those, right?

It took us awhile to get to it, but when we finally did see it, it turned out to be just what I expected, though the trailers lead us to believe some things that weren't quite right. Anyway, they do that, those trailers!

And I thought Tom Cruise was in a perfect Tom Cruise sort of role. I know some people can't stand watching him anymore these days because of his crazy personal life, but I'm still okay with seeing him in the movies. So, I had no problem with him. There was one scene of him doing some crazy space ship flying and I thought... ah!!! Top Gun!!!

So the story. It's a crazy one. I loved the twists and shockers. Awesome! If you go into this movie knowing nothing and you are able to figure out what's going on... you are one plot figuring out machine dude! Let me know if you can!

However, if you think about things too hard, you'll probably find some inconsistencies and inexplicable stuff, so if that kind of thing bothers you, beware. But my suggestion... don't think about it too hard!

Anyway, fun fun movie, great effects, great music, great story.

Bottom line: I was enthralled the whole time.

And the awesome trailer I was talking about:


  1. Oh, good, I'm glad it's as good as it looks! The inconsistencies would probably bug my husband, but I'm sort of a "details schmetails" kind of person when it comes to movies. I'm definitely going to check this one out!

  2. Inconsistencies do bother me...but if I go in knowing they exist I cn ignore them more!

    1. Melissa: They weren't really that big, I'd say.

  3. I'm glad to hear it was good. I might actually see it, probably on Red Box, though, because we haven't been going to the theater as much this year.

  4. I can't stand Tom Cruise, and this movie is all about his scientology craziness, so I refuse to watch! Glad you liked it though.

    1. Kami: Wait. What does it have to do with Scientology? Or is it like people saying Twilight has to do with Mormonism? I would tend to not believe it...

  5. "I'm really excited for this one too! I er, haven't read the first one though.
