    Funny, I hated Oblivion, too, but the things that set me off seem to have been really different than what bothered you. For example, I hated that this advanced, intergalactic race only seemed to have these silly little orb/drone things for security. And I hated that the human resistance, when confronted by 6-feet-wide security drones, never thought to build their secret hideaways with 5-foot doors. Why do anything that might impede the progress of the only attack device your enemy has?

    But, yeah, the Independence Day ending was incredibly annoying, too.

    Clearly Joe Kosinski is an art designer who doesn’t have the slightest idea how to plot. It was basically the same movie as Tron, but in white tones instead of black.

    Nice review. I agree with your criticisms. I also wonder why the aliens bothered to keep Tom Cruise and co alive to unwittingly do their bidding. Wouldn’t it be easier to build maintenance robots or simply design better drones which don’t break down every ten minutes. This was the first movie I’ve ever walked out of and I’ve seen Prometheus.

    im agreed with everything all you just said. i feel ripped off and i just rented. good thing i spent only 2 dollars on it!
    i must add to it the thing pissed me off the most was the music it was like trying to give it some sort of sublime significance or whatever they try to accomplish was terrible corny specially whe tom cruise narrated the story.
    i think would be better without that music. or, hear me out here, for a trash movie you get trash soundtrack!

    Well the biggest dumbest thing is simply, how the aliens took Tom cruise out of the spaceship to clone it, and let the others passengers alive? I hope that they thought to close the door of the ship after leaving.. For a race that wants to annihilate the mankind, doing so much work to keep the other members of the crew alive is very sweet. And not to forget that the only survivor of the crash was his..wife !! Maybe the kids and the pet were in the spaceship including granny.
    I guess that before going in deep questioning about what are the more scientific odds of the movie, I think that the basic common sense would even be more appropriate…
