/ Oblivion - Tom Cruise film
But... all through i kept feeling i had seen it before, then it hit me - it was a Wall-e / Independence Day Mash-Up!
Anyone else seen it?!?
Not yet, I was planning to but saw The Host last week. Would you say it would be better to wait till the film went to DVD before watching it?
The Host was a strange one.
The Host is written by the Twilight bird isn't it?

I did not know that when I went to see the film. Its an excellent sifi idea spoiled by the schitso chick-flick romance of two young men and one young woman. This film had so much potential but they screwed it up with the sickeningly lovy dovey Hollywood mush.
Good film though.
Yes I saw it at the weekend. Saw it on imax - superb visuals and sound. We really enjoyed it, more so than exepcted. As you say, it borrows a lot from other films - the two you mention plus others (eg. Star Wars trench scene). I found it quite gripping though I know some have found it quite slow. For me, if you can accept the rather shallow characters and the very heavy nods to other films, the only real weakness was the ending. Very obvious and it should have been cut short by about 2 mins.
4/5 for me.
Saw this last night. Good for a Tom Cruise film. Mediocre overall.
Btw. Luckily I hadn't seen this thread before seeing the film but if you are going to mention the 'twist' in the film you should put 'spoiler' in the title.
I though it was awesome.
Also, the soundtrack was done by M83 which makes it even better.
Enjoyed it. Several nods to Hal and his red light from 2001 ASO.
Plot, indeed. There's a total oversensitivity to spoilers on here.
Who mentionerd the lack of personality in the main characters? Not surprising in a bunch of clones with their memories wiped, is it?
But perhaps saying it involves Tom Cruise and a lot of guns and spaceships counts as a spoiler?
Because given that info, I know exactly what happens, and also, exactly why I wouldn't accept payment to sit through this tripe :-)
