He’s ***really** promoting the sh**t out of this film. Usually I take this to be a sign that the film is really bad and thus NEEDS the promotion.

But I saw it last night…It’s “alright” but to be honest I had no idea what the hell was going on. I personally found it to be too confusing of a script.

@Camden: you must be dumb because Oblivion was pretty easy to understand.

@Neo:
I agree you,haha!
The story of oblivion is not difficult to understand, I watched it last night, It’s so fabulous film.

@shia:

Well in all sincerity *please* explain it to me? Was the whole crew of the Odyssey cloned? How many Jack’s were there? Was the ‘thing’ up in the sky just one big ass computer?

Whether I got it or not. It’s still being panned by the critics across the board, The Hollywood Reporter, The Guardian, Variety…take your pick. So there’s clearly something missing.

Hence he’s heavy on the promotional trail.

He is so phony, I can’t even watch his interviews anymore.

“The James Clayton Column: If Tom Cruise were consigned to oblivion”

Here’s a science fiction scenario for you: what if Tom Cruise was consigned to oblivion? What if Cruise was written right out of the universe? Erased from existence, removed from history and all trace of him wiped from this reality – I’m guessing that some plot along the lines of Looper or The Terminator is taking him out – what would the world be like?

The answer is worse. If Thomas Cruise Mapother IV had never been born to grace the big screen and occasionally do slightly eccentric things like surf sofas on chat show TV, Earth would be a slightly sadder place. Thinking on it you find that Tom’s Midas Touch has, erm, touched so much of the movie landscape over the past three decades, and had such a significant role in the unrolling of cultural history, that it’s slightly disturbing to dwell on the idea that, Sliding Doors-style, it could have been so different.

To prove this, I’m going to go through the It’s A Wonderful Life scenario with Tom Cruise playing Tom Cruise instead of Jimmy Stewart playing good ol’ George Bailey. It feels wrong to raise this tale when it isn’t Christmas but, then again, so much is wrong and weird in the contemplation of a Cruise-free reality.

To recap, in Frank Capra’s classic fable, decent everyman George Bailey drops into overwhelming depression and comes to the breaking point of wishing that he’d never been born. Luckily, his chirpy guardian angel Clarence is on hand to show suicidal George that his life has been worth living by giving him a whistlestop tour through a nightmarish alternate vision of a Bedford Falls in which Bailey never existed.

George soon sees that he’s touched so many people’s lives and made a positive difference to the town. He subsequently returns to reality with an upbeat spirit, confident in the knowledge that he’s not a failure but is in fact the richest man in Bedford Falls because he has so many loving friends. Angels get their wings, Christmas is magical and everyone realises that, yes, It’s A Wonderful Life after all.

I reckon that if we do the same thing with Cruise we’ll arrive at a similar conclusion.

Who’s acting as the cocky paragon poster boy of brash 80s youth – a zeitgeisty feature that that provides essential flavour to flicks like Top Gun and The Color Of Money? There’s a hole in the essential identity of a whole decade, and all young arrogant males have to look to Eddie Murphy as a role model instead.

As for the action cinema genre, without the Mission: Impossible franchise, the bar for stunts and audacious spectacle is far lower. What’s more, no one trusts untested TV showrunner JJ Abrams to direct a film, and animation legend Brad Bird is still struggling to get support for his wish to try live-action moviemaking.

It’s also true that without Top Gun, Jerry Bruckheimer doesn’t become the Blockbuster Godfather and the US Air Force doesn’t experience a mass influx of eager recruits. The USSR wins the Cold War and Hollywood makes far less money, so altogether the California Dream is killed and possibly turned Communist.

I’ve not even touched on iconic Cruise performances that I’m personally unfamiliar with such as those of Rain Man, Born On The Fourth Of July and Jerry Maguire. I think you get my point – the Cruiser has had a considerable impact upon the movie industry and upon audiences thanks to his generous and determined nature, his can-do attitude and his impressively flexible acting acumen. It’d be a bit sad if this star was extinguished.
