oblivion isn't a perfect film, but i agree that it's underrated. if you're a scifi fan you owe it to yourself to watch it at some point. i'm as much a tom cruise hater as the next guy, but he does his role credit in this film. he's not all fiery intensity this time; he actually finds some small measure of subtlety to give peace to his character. and the scifi visuals are, at times, breathtaking. also the soundtrack is phenomenal. certainly it's nowhere near as bad as prometheus.
