Oblivion (2013)

I wasn't expecting to like this, as most sci-fi/post-apoc movies seem to fall a little short these days, but I was surprised by this one.

A goof amount of post-apocalyptic earth destruction/beauty but with a great mix of 2001 and Starwars style and/or battle scenes. Beautifully shot, and the cg was really well done (I tend to hate cg). Got a bit hammy (ie any scene with Morgan Freeman) and it may have explained itself a little too much, but the story for the most part was pretty good, with a few good twists.

Haha.....a facebook friend's status update this week was "I'm watching Oblivian...I'm 40 minutes in. There's a lot of Tom Cruise. I see where this is going. Should I turn this off?"

I thought it was surprisingly decent but Moon does the same story better.

I think Moon was a better movie, however other than the one strong similarity, I think Oblivion overall is quite a different story.

Is this the one where Tom Cruise shoots hoops to Led Zeppelin like a tourism commercial?
