RU? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 55 – Oblivion

Oblivion surprised us quite a bit, and the result is a strong open to ever-expanding summer. The Tom Cruise vehicle had us pretty nervous going in, and there are a few plot theories that were perhaps not the best way to handle things, but overall we had a great time. During the show, I had to throw out that I found some of the cliches a little much – the “Danger Zone” could have been laid out quite a bit better, for example – and I thought we could have used a bit more to get us going early on when it came to the explanation for the war, etc., but those niggling problems didn’t amount to much when I was looking for an overall reaction. We also play an interview clip with Tom Cruise, and he talks briefly about his character, and how his thoughts swim into the film’s overall construction.
