I'm beginning to suspect that Mr Cruise has a clause in his contracts that require him to be dangled from a rope in every film.
there's probably some Freudian explanation for that but I'm not smart enough to spot it .

It was a good soundtrack (if a little too close to Hans Zimmer's brilliant Batman scores in places), but I did feel that at times they could have dialled it back a bit, I'm thinking particularly of the unnecessarily epic and loud music that was played over the swimming pool sex scene, a more sedate piece of music would have better suited the scene rather than the epic booming theme that was there instead, it made the scene almost comical for me.
I agree with this actually - that particular scene the epic music was really unnecessary / bizzare! However it sounded and looked so damn good I didn't really care.

The one character I seemed to care most about in the end was Andrea Riseborough's character even though maybe I wasn't supposed to!
Indeed. (I wrote the same thing myself earlier this week.) The other two didn't have much going on.

I'm giving this one a miss. The trailer doesn't sell the film IMO. Yes it's all pretty CGI visuals as you would expect in a sci-fi film but that appears to be it as far as the trailer goes.
The trailer avoids spoilers, which is a good thing.

This has lhe look and feel of Prometheus about it to me.
Not really. Prometheus was probably a bit too ambitious, and also suffered from characters doing things for no apparent reason (other than gross stupidity). Oblivion isn't ambitious enough, and as others have said is a bit derivative. I thought it was OK, but only worth 6/10.

The trailers made me think of WALL-E as well.
The drones made me think of WALL_E. They had that cute robot look.

Went to watch it but it was bad idea, because I've been so exhausted for the past two days lack kf sleep etc that I was dozing of many times, and I only just managed to keep interest. S I can't say whether I though it was good or not. From that parts I saw which had my full interest I liked, the visuals etc but I did feel the story felt a a bit flat

Haven't seen olga in anything but I thought she was the best thing in it, even though she didnt have a meaty role, her presence was really strong.

I saw it yesterday, and I really enjoyed it, personally I found it to be good a Sci Fi film. I also didn't mind the pace.

For me it was like a cross between a Colgate advert and Blakes' 7

watchable enough tho, even if Tom Cruise is getting a bit irksome these days

It looks and sounds great on Blu-Ray. I hadn't seen it on the cinema, but wasn't disappointed with the film though when I saw it on Blu-Ray.

Finally got round to watching this...it wasn't exactly bad but it was a long way from good too. Overall I'd say I was happy not to have spent the money at the pictures.

Totally agree. M83 did a superb job on the soundtrack. Loved it.

Personally i thought Oblivion was fantastic despite its flaws, one of Tom Cruise's better films. The standout of the film however was Andrea Riseborough who was excellent in her role. I loved that line - Are you an effective team?
