Re: Oblivion - Blu-ray Review

Well I was definitely planning on seeing this one when it came out, but after reading this review I might just have to buy it. It's always good to have a few demo discs on hand, even though I don't buy a whole lot of movies (gotta pay for the equipment!). Thanks for the review.

Its odd that Morgan Freeeman hardly got mentioned in this review considering he's miles better an actor than Tom Cruise.

I missed this in the theaters. I plan on stopping at BB after work today to pick it up. Looking forward to watching it tonight if I get the time. Thanks for the review Mike.

Re: Oblivion - Blu-ray Review

I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise, but I do seem to like the majority of movies he is in. Good actor. This movie looked excellent with the trailers, but I didn't watch it in theaters. From your review, it looks like I may have to pick this up. Sounds like it might be like another Cruise movie, War of the Worlds, that I use to show off the theater.

Thanks for the review.

I agree, and a better person off the screen as well. Cruise is a strange bird.
The Walmart near me did not have any steelbox sets but had the Bluray free T-shirt box (kind of a neat looking black shirt with white logo and image).

Certainly reference quality on both the audio and video side. Lots of LFE and excellent surround activity. As far as the story I thought it was decent.

Re: Oblivion - Blu-ray Review

Watched it last night.

Yes, the PQ and AQ were great. Story line I though was very interesting and enjoyed it. I will watch it again. Tom Cruise as a person, I am not a fan but I do enjoy his movies.
