Oblivion


Oblivion, 2013 film starring Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough.  Cruise loves to dabble in the science fiction genre, and why.. He is good at it.  Jack and Julia are a drone maintenance team working on earth 50+ years after an alien invasion decimated the planet.  They are charged with maintaining and repairing drones that safeguard the ocean generators that are helping repair the planet.

Jack witnesses a spaceship crash land and actually has survivors on it, he goes to help.  He can only save one as the drones manage to kill the other 4. (why kill, you will have to watch it to find out)  Soon things begin unravelling for Jack as the survivor is familiar and memories begin coming back.  Add to this that he is captured by what he thought were the last remnants of the aliens called ravagers.  Soon Jack starts to question his mission, what he remembers and more so, himself!

This is a powerful sci-fi and worth watching again and again.  I have seen it 3 times now and still see elements I didn’t realize in previous watching’s.  The cast is perfect for this film and the visuals are top notch.  The only thing I question is why this film didn’t win any awards?
