TOM CRUISE’S “OBLIVION” LEAVES YOU WONDERING WHY YOU BOTHERED

Tom Cruise is rapidly becoming the king of comic book movies (or “graphic novels” if you prefer.) His latest effort, the aptly titled “Oblivion,” is typical of the genre- the visuals are outstanding. The modern house he lives in high above earth is spectacular, as are the space age vehicles he races around in. What’s missing is a cohesive story. It’s not easy to translate a comic book that EXPLAINS every image quite clearly, into expository dialog, and these writers failed miserably. Good luck trying to figure out who’s fighting who and why. Character development and motivation are cast aside for outer space special effects. The only way to enjoy this movie is to read a synopsis of the plot before you go in – but that kind of spoils the whole experience. Comic book based movies are clearly a waste of time if you’re yearning for a compelling story.

    Over $38 million dollars opening week-end in the States and over $100 overseas. I guess someone wasn’t reading Janet’s column and instead went to see the Tom Cruise movie.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
