I feel like I still did a bad job explaining the movie cuz I don't like to spoil and what's the point in only convincing people who already saw it.
Problem is the trailers hid so much of the movie, that there's no way anyone would possibly understand what's going on.
I mean...they never mentioned the main conflict of the movie...or what the enemy looks like...or the state of that world...or what the goal is...or when it takes place...or like 90% of the characters or wtf with the mech suits or the time travel or the plane or what the battlefield looks like or what the stakes are or what the movie's supposed to be recreating/representing. Nothing.
I pretty much knew I was going to see this movie (probably not in theaters) regardless of reviews when I caught on a few weeks ago that this movie is basically, and I'll quote Jimmy Fallon, Groundhog's Day meets Call of Duty
I really liked Jack Reacher.
Dude I really liked that movie too.
Real talk that opening seen was one of the most suspenseful/intense scenes I've seen in a thriller in a while.
I loved the quiet tone to the movie. Very "Drive" esque. But unlike Drive, which was helped by a tremendous soundtrack, Reacher let natural noises set the tone for the movie. I loved that. Not a lot of random music or artificial sounds, just let the quiet and natural sounds like the cars he drove or the weapons they shot to be the main soundtrack to the movie.
I enjoyed oblivion for what it was.
Decent flick to watch in the crib, some of the film work was dope.
I dialed oblivion because they showed Morgan Freeman in the previews.
So it basically showed the plot or "monsters"
One of my favorite movies was SE7EN.
Why? Cause kevin ******* spacey came out of no where.
And as mentioned it kinda ended a bit flat and the tone of it throughout I can see cause some ppl to call it bland but to me it just had a unique feel and look given the story. It was really inbetween a lot of genres. Pretty much a longer Twilight Zone ep.
Excommunicate this dude.
