Thatcher's funeral procession thingy yesterday. Miraculously people behaved themselves, no paint bombs, no eggs thrown, no Wizard of Oz ditty on loudspeakers, no spooking the horses, some people did turn their backs when the procession neared, pfft what a yawn. Much more exciting was Oblivion, the new sci-fi thriller starring Tom Cruise. Saw it last night at my local multiplex, only in 2D but I'm not complaining I've watched too much 3D at home these past few months. My eyes needed a break. I enjoyed the film, a well made slice of sci-fi. On a post-apocalyptic Earth, mankind has left its home and settled on Saturn's moon Titan, Tom Cruise and his female partner (Andrea Riseborough) have remained behind to fix drones and watch out for strange lifeforms that may be roaming the planet, and they report back to a massive space station orbiting the Earth. Tom keeps dreaming of a mysterious woman (Bond girl Olga Kurylenko) and when a spaceship crashes one of the survivors turns out to be, you guessed it, the girl of his dreams. That's not a spoiler because there is still 90mins of film to get through and plenty of action and surprises too. Recommended 4 out of 5. Trailers with the film, Iron Man 3, Star Trek 2, After Earth and Fast and the Furious 5-6? Can't remember.
