  1. Good review Jeff. Sure, it’s a gimmick, but it works well with that gimmick and always finds way to surprise us time and time again.

    • Thanks Alan. I actually checked out the article too and didn’t want to bog the review down explaining the difference between light novel, manga and a comic book although I’m sure that will earn me the scorn of some of these guys online…
      Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons

  2. i am going to skip and wait for dvd. I can dig a good sci-fi film but I just dont know. Question jeff, it may be a movie night at the house with the mrs… suggestions.. good comedy, can be girly but not depressing. i have vudu and amazon on the ps3 so I can a little higher than a redbox film. I know come up with some random stuff man.

    • What’s the last good sci-fi you’ve seen?

      Hmmn. I’m kinda terrible with this. Did you all see “About Last Night?” That was a solid romantic comedy.

      How about you give me 4-5 choices and I’ll rank them for you?

  3. I cant really remember… yeah we saw in theaters. I got nothing at the time. I will check back. I see cap got paid. well you know you have your qb for years to come

  4. Just watched this today. Very impressed. It truly is Groundhog day for scifi fans though. No need to skirt around that.
    I loved the redemption angle.
    And contrary to the guy who commented on your Facebook post, i also thought Oblivion was a great movie.

    • LOL. Yeah, I was thinking that, but I just felt like it was too obvious and when I saw how often it was referenced on Rotten Tomatoes, I felt better for not mentioning it.

      Me too. Felt like it was such a creative idea and done well.

      And my thoughts on “Oblivion” are well-documented here ;-)

      • Yeah. I’d say this is easily cut from the same cloth as Oblivion.
        But i do love Oblivion. I have a copy of the Blu Ray at work, and love the featurettes as much as the movie itself, for the work that went into it.

      • Here is Tom Cruise. You may remember him from such movies as Endless Love, Taps, The outsiders, Losin’ It, Risky Business, All The Right Moves, Legend, Top gun, The Color Of Money, Cocktail, Rain Man, Born On The Fourth Of July, Days Of Thunder, Far And Away, A Few Good Men, The Firm, Interview With The Vampire, Mission: Impossible, Jerry Maguire, Eyes Wide Shut, Magnolia, Mission: Impossible II, Vanilla Sky, Minority Report, The Last Samurai, Collateral, War Of The Worlds, Mission: Impossible III, Lions For Lambs, Tropic Thunder, Valkyrie, Knight And Day, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Rock Of Ages, Jack Reacher, Oblivion, and Edge Of Tomorrow.
        If you don’t remember those, then trust us. He is an actor.

      • It just took a minute or two. IMDB is my friend.
        But i was imagining it in the voice of Troy McClure.
        I think the primary problem with Tom Cruise(And it’s not a problem, per se), is that he is SO well know, it’s hard not to have seen a great portion of his work and already have seen hours of him acting.
        It takes me slightly out of a movie with such a major celebrity when you have already seen almost his entire body of work.
        And the exact opposite when i am watching a movie with complete unknowns.
        Did you ever get the chance to watch Primer?
