FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE REVIEW: I’ve been extremely waiting to see this movie and now I finally have! “Oblivion” starring Tom Cruise (Mission Impossible, War of the Worlds), Morgan Freeman (Driving Miss Daisy, Now You See Me), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Hitman), and Andrea Riseborough (Welcome to the Punch, Made in Dagenham). The year is 2077. 60 years ago in 2017 a war struck. Aliens came and destroyed Earth’s moon making Earth go into chaos with earthquakes and tsunamis. After that they came to Earth and attacked. The humans won the battle, or so they think. Parts of Earth soon become inhabitable and people had to start living in the space station Tet while two partner humans, Jack Harper (Cruise) and Victoria (Riseborough), stayed on Earth for a mission to keep the generators that suck up ocean water for energy running and keep drones ok and functional. Jack has troubles with dreams. Even though their leaders made a clean memory swipe of everyone, he still has a certain memory flashing in his head constantly. Since he does a lot of the work on the ground of Earth fixing drones, he explores a lot making him wonder about things which his leaders told him not to do. Everything soon changes whenever he finds a bunch of sleeping pods that crash-land on Earth and a drone kills them all except for one which is the woman in Jacks dreams leading to the scavs, the remaining aliens on Earth, capturing him and making him find out stuff that changes his life forever. I thought the story was excellent and the acting was great! Morgan Freeman wasn’t in it that much tough with only being in one scene in the middle and the ending. It made a twist at the ending which surprised me and at the end it made me sad, happy, and a little confused at the same time. But after I thought about it, it made more sense to me so now I am better with the ending. Long story short, this is one of the best science fiction movies I have seen of all time!! I recommend this to everybody!!! FINAL SCORE: 95%= Juicy Popcorn
