    The worst actor in hollywood. lives on another planet? that is apparent but isn’t that what he wants with that scientology bullshit. He is such a fucking idiot to boot, if he just came out it would actually help his carrer and lets face it it could not get any worse. The only director to drag a decent performance out of him was Paul Thomas Anderson in magnolia, but he played a self centred, delusional greedy charlatan so it wasn’t much of a stretch. He is not believable in anything. I smashed him in a pool game one night with Brian Brown..he is 2 feet tall with a massive head…lol 🙄

    “Tom Cruise lives on another planet.

    The End.”

    Thanks very much, you could have said “spoiler alert”!

    three stars ya reckon egg?

    Apart from two or three action scenes it was pretty boring. There were a couple Star Wars references, and two-thirds of the plot was a direct rip-off of Moon – a far superior film in so many ways.

    Reprise of my post … April 17, 2013 8:17 pm

    The Minister gave it ★★★★

    I’m agnostic so I gave it ★★★

    Story a mix of Mad Max, Star Wars and Star Trek … a couple of nice twists and easily understood if you get sci-fi (I’ve been a fan for over 50 {FMD!} years) … but it seemed that bit were too short and characters weren’t developed enough … everyone succumbed to the hero … great graphics … loved the “destroyed moon” …

    Non sci-fi listeners may struggle with the concepts …

    Can’t see Oblivion in my movie collection, though …

    ‘three stars ya reckon egg?’

    Whatever gets the punters through the door, the producers won’t do badly out of it.

    The Chinese loved Avatar and Hollywood is onto it.

    I had limited expectations of this movie and in some aspects there were the usual tropes of the genre but there was also a rather grown up plot and a nice lack of space opera silliness. The CGI was delightfully seamless and convincing which made the world believable and the plot twists while easily predictable to this old cynic were not overplayed or inconsistent with the vision of the film.

    Over all it scores an eight out of ten on the old Iain-O-metre, quite worth watching and worth the price of admission to the Cinema .

    sreb, no but we seem to enjoy similar movies/TV so I’ll check it …

    … watched, Lawless, last night and quite enjoyed it (despite the violence) – mainly for the “history” of the story … highlight for me was this … love it!


    I see you and I agree … IH … 😉

    As most folk know, l don`t use Facebook coz l don`t trust it.(fb_corp)
    Last night, watched the movie about it, “the social network“
    The movie did a good job of explaining to me why l distrust it.

Go on say something, you'll feel better...
