When I heard a film was being made called Oblivion, then nerd in me thought it was going to be an Elder Scrolls film. I was a bit disappointed and a bit relieved. I recently watched this film and was again blown away by Tom Cruise.
As I’ve mentioned in my Jack Reacher review, I am not a big fan of the man Tom Cruise but am a huge fan of the actor. Very few films have I not liked with him as an actor. This film is no exception.
What I like about this film is several things. First is that there are many hints of there being deception in all of this right from the beginning. But it is not being drilled into you as, “It’s so obvious there is something happening you idiot”, but a subconscious thought of “something seems off, but I don’t know what”. I think this called into question of some of the panning in America that often times, as with a lot of sci-fi, it required viewers to think. Many people disliked the Matrix films for the same reasons.

This article discusses the final battle of Star Trek VI. Now maybe it is the nerd in me, but when I watch a movie that I’ve seen many times over I begin asking questions about what I am watching. Now yes, I am a big time Star Trek fan. I can even claim that I watched it from birth, because when my Mother held me in her arms for the first time, Star Trek (TOS) was on the TV she was watching.
