Dear Diary,

Recently, hubby and I have made a pact to always have a “Fridate”, every Friday we’d go out on a date.  So for this Fridate we watched Tom Cruise’s new movie, Oblivion.  Both of us being sci-fi fans, it was no surprise that we both loved the movie.   Yes, there are some loopholes as most sci-fi shows have if you scrutinize it.  But hubby and I usually just watch movies to be entertained, we don’t really question the correctness or the science behind it.

The movie takes place after the war between humans and aliens who were trying to invade earth.  The humans win the war but has greatly devastated the earth that it is no longer deemed safe to live in and now all human beings live in a huge pyramid shaped craft out in space.  Tom Cruise’s character is a tech in charge of taking care of the drones that hunt the aliens still on earth.  And I won’t tell you anything else so that I won’t spoil the movie for you.

Tom Cruise’s acting is similar to how he acts in Mission Impossible.   The other casts were suitable for their roles.  I just think there were moments that might have needed some funny/witty lines.  The movie was a bit too serious with few LOL moments, but the action is intense.  Also, when I heard the background music, first thing that came to my mind was that it sounded a lot like the soundtrack from the movie Tron.  And after reading the description from wildaboutmovies.com, I saw that it was directed by the same guy that directed Tron. 🙂

All in all, let’s just say that even after the movie, hubby and I talked about it a lot because we both loved the story and would recommend our friends to watch it.
