Hi everyone, welcome to Thursday's Tagline! As planned on Tuesday I went to see Oblivion, the new Sci-fi Tom Cruise flick, directed by Joseph Kosinski, who also directed Tron: Legacy. Oblivion takes place in 2077, 60 years after the Earth was attacked by a mysterious race of aliens known as Scavengers, who had come to harvest the Earth's resources. They began their attack by mostly destroying the Earth's moon, throwing the planet into ecological upheaval, and then proceeded to assault the ground in earnest. After a brutal battle that involved the desperate use of nuclear stockpiles, mankind was victorious, but at a grievous cost to the planet. With no other real alternatives, the population migrated to a colony on Titan, leaving behind only a skeleton crew to mop up and protect large hydroplants harvesting the Earth's oceans for use powering the Titan colony later. one such technician is Jack Harper (Cruise) a man haunted by fragments of memories of his life before his mission (as part of some security protocol he has no memories from before the start of his mission). His only human interaction comes in the form of his mission support officer, Victoria (Andrea Riseborough, who has been in exactly nothing I've seen ever... except the pilot of Being Human apparently) who is both his mission control and girlfriend, which I guess would happen if you had contact with only one other person in the world, and they were an attractive British woman. I can't go in to details about the movie without revealing some crucial plot, so serious spoilers beneath the cut.
|You just know this is the bad guys. It's all too clean and|
well equipped to not be.
|Thank god Morgan Freeman and Jaime Lannister will|
survive to clean up the post-apocalyptic mess.
|Are you okay? No!|
|Take in the wasted scenery! Isn't that purdy!|
That's all for today! I'll see you later guys!
