Are you planning to check out Oblivion next weekend?

Definitely, it looks impressive!
Possibly, haven't decided yet.
Waiting for more reviews.
If I do, it will be just to count how many things it "borrows" from other sci-fi movies.
Nope, doesn't interest me at all.
I've already seen it! I'm not in North America.
Can't stand Tom Cruise, to be honest.

Really liked it

Saw it last friday (live in Sweden) and really liked it. The look of the film and the score is absolutely great. A bit rushed in the end and the acting by Olga Kurylenko and her character wasn't that good though (her calling out "Jack" all the time just as in Titanic doesn't help). You really need to experience the film at a large screen.

LOVED IT

Although people have rightly said that there are elements from different sci fi works in this film. I thought it all worked really well. It was beautiful had a great soundtrack and had a nice balance of action. Will definately be buying this film.

While soke of the f/x look a lil shady at times the trailers have caught my attention & I will see any movie Tom Cruise is in. Something about this movie must have caught his attention also.

I just did, and it's pretty good. A lot of contemporary science fiction films could be seen as frenetic and noisy, so it was really nice to see one that had this quiet magnificence about it. Joseph Kosinski talked about being inspired by Lawrence of Arabia, particularly the scenes where TE Lawrence is astride his camel travelling alone - that sense of grandeur in isolation is what he's managed to capture really well with Oblivion. It's a very visual movie and is probably less contemplative than

It's a very visual movie and is probably less contemplative than it seems. The twist ending is pretty par for the course, but there are a few elements that do make it pretty interesting. It wraps up a little too neatly, but it isn't a cop-out. I do wish they focused a little more attention on the stragglers led by Morgan Freeman. We don't get a lot of character development for them.

I've seen it...

...and I would put the movie in the same category as Source Code and Looper, which are these recent sci-fi movies with classic (if not over-used) sci-fi elements but which still feel fresh when made by talented filmmakers.

Looks solid

No doubt I'll be seeing this over the weekend. I just hope my expectations aren't too high.

Deft seeing it...

My fav band is doing the score. M83 rules, and to hear them in a sci-fi movie none the less.

Pretty much what darkface said. Solid 8/10. Always entertaining, worth going to the movies.

Saw it in Belgium last week. It's basically a combination of numerous sci-fi movies all thrown into one story. Which isn't a bad thing. The director did a great job framing the movie and the score is beautiful. 8.5/10.

I'm in no rush but I'll probably check it out in theaters, Tom Cruise is usually delivers the goods, it's not often he's in bad movies, even his average movies are entertaining, Jack Reacher for example.
