As your duly appointed Kinge I have but one Mandate which with my Sword I shall protect; it is this Thinge:
  • Science fiction films may not contain or allude to classic rock songs
Braak over at Threat Quality Press is hysterical in his take on Oblivion. More than that though, he's pretty accurate.
One thing I find odd about these sorts of movies is that there's always a place where they run out of money for visual effects. The space-pod thing? Always looks great. I mean, it looks fantastic. It's photo-real in every darn shot it's in.
But every time we drive across the Brooklyn Bridge on a motorcycle everything just breaks down visually.

Oh yeah -- Prometheus made this mistake with James Brown's tambourine or something like that. Right?
