Re: Oblivion - Blu-ray Review

Good sound quality and video quality. Found the storyline interesting. And, was that the real him at the end

Spoiler
The real him (astronaut, husband, mission commander) likely died 60 years earlier when he and his co-pilot (who had a crush on him) entered the giant alien ship.

LOL maybe you should edit that post haha.

Anyway I did a blind buy on this and have to agree with everyone about the audio & video quality - one of the best yet. Story was so-so but my wife and I did enjoy it.

Re: Oblivion - Blu-ray Review

I'm a Tom Cruise fan but glad i rented it and not purchased. Good audio and video but that in itself was not reason enough for me to make a purchase.
I lost interest half way through the flick.

I hear you I did a blind buy. The audio and visual was nice but the storyline didn't do it for me nor for my wife and she likes just about anything.

Re: Oblivion - Blu-ray Review

Thanks for the review!

I also bought it, but I knew going in that the storyline was going to be "borrowed" for the most part. However, the audio / video side was so good I just had to add it...

Re: Oblivion - Blu-ray Review

I FINALLY watched this film on BD. Mike, you hit the nail on the head with this review. Definitely Moon (possibly cross pollinated with Star Wars and Independence Day?) influenced. Video and Audio are a grand slam.
