Movie – Oblivion: A

This has been the summer of Post-Earth stories, but I think Oblivion is the only one that really did it right. The story has a few turns, but allows you to see around the corners instead of yanking you through twists. It could be argued that this equates predictability, but I think it’s just sound story structure. Tom Cruise’s casting couldn’t have been better, and his co-stars worked well too. It’s a world both beautifully imagined and visualized. Good, solid science fiction.
