Oblivion… In Review
Story; The Story is good enough. Sixty years ago, our moon was destroyed by an Alien Force. We won the war, but Earth is just about unlivable.
Visuals; This is a Beautiful Movie. Good Directing, Great Cinematography. Great Production Design.
Jack (Tom Cruise); Cruise is s Good Actor… He does a good job.
Julia (Olga Kurylenko); This actress also did a good job.
Victoria (Andrea Riseborough); This actress is also good.
Additional Characters; Morgan Freeman is in it, but it’s not much of a Character/Role. Also Nikoloj Coster-Waldau from “Game Of Thrones” (Jamie). His character in “Game Of Thrones” is brilliant, but his character in this film is almost nothing.
The Drones; The Drones are actually the most interesting characters beyond Cruise, and the Two Girls… They are a very cool part of this film.
Overall Rating; Reading this Review, it may not be obvious, but this is a very good film. Like I say, the Visuals are Stunning, and the Story is Good Enough to keep your interest. Reflecting upon it, I’d say the Production Value and overall feeling, and look of the film, as well as the music, really make it a cool experience to watch.
7.75 out of 10 Stars

Jono and Jenna took me to the Ships Bridge, where I was at last to meet the Great Captain Fire. He seemed a very Focused, hands
waving about, Rough Edged fellow. But when Jenna introduced me…
“Captain… Hate to bother you Sir… This is Nisho.” Captain Fire turned and looked me up and down.
“What can she do…” He mustard out, as he turned back to Rud and Nef dishing out orders. Jono spoke before Jenna could reply. “She’s a Refugee from Ona Sir… Jenna brought her aboard.” Jenna looked at her brother Jono like she had just been turned into her Mother for steeling marbles from the Boys at School. She then turned her attention back to Captain Fire. “She’s Honest… Sir.” This seemed to grab the Captain’s attention once more. “Honest eh… How refreshing… Have her assist the Cook, we will be needing sustenance soon”. With this Captain Fire left the Bridge to inspect the rest of the ship, for they would be traveling for quite some time before making space port again.
“This is Rud and Nef…” Jenna gestured to them.
“Well met…”, and then “And this is Mino and Tyo…” “Great another mouth to feed…” Mino spat out as she left the bridge as well. “Don’t mind her… She has no appreciation for the desperate and needy… Pardon me.” Tyo spoke, and then followed after Mino. “It really doesn’t matter what they think…” Jenna reassured Nisho. “Jenna!” Jono snapped at her. “Jenna smiled slightly, and put her hand on my shoulder “Come along Nisho, I’ll show you to the kitchen… There is no Cook that you will be assisting, there is only you.” I followed her hastily, but looked back at Jono of who I had a hard time not looking at whilst in his presence.
