I've seen it yesterday in 4k. Almost walked out from the cinema. This film is a disaster. 2/10 in my book.

WOW!, no body cared!...it's official.
lol. Well, I certainly liked it enough to give it anouther view, and to recommend it over a Prometheus and ANY OF THE STARWARS PRE-QUALS! (certanly not the IV/V/VI) ..but that's just me.
I'm now wondering, however, just what kind of movies buffs all the home theater enthusiasts here, concerned with system integrity, higher end audio, and large screen images, are into?! Is everyone here excited about the upcoming extended Star Wars CGI flic-fest?!..maybe waiting for another Bourne Discrepancy 9? ..er perhaps chomping at the bit for the next aging Arnold and Stalone tandum screening to appear in the "Depends-ables?" ..cause I KNOW all ya all ain't inta no "The Piano", and "leMisseryable" or "Da Break UP", and such!? ..really??????
Oh, and PLEASE tell me you all dind't really love the filf-flarn-filthy mouth fest of TED or The Watch more than this film!!?..I weap for the future! BBUUUAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! .WWAAAAAAAAAAA
Case anyone cared (I think I'm alone on this posting), I WILL be viewing Oblivion 2 when it comes out...IN 3D, no less! :-)
Guess I'll be the only one in there. ..I'll probably run around the theater, looking behind the screen to see what's back there, and laying sideways accross 3 seats w/raiseable arm rests, texting all night on my cell phone. ..all by my lonesome. I can already hear the crickets chirping between scenes...
Of note: Iron Man 3 lasted about A WEEK, before going bye bye from my local Megaplex!!! (honestly, I walked out less than 15 minutes in -been there, seen that -, foolishly having payed $19.50 for the IMAX showing!!.lol - what was I thinking?! I went in to see Oblivion again, instead)
Oblivion, on the other hand, has continued playing for over 5 weeks, last time I checked!
I like it. That's me though...
This movie is a perfect example of horrible execution of a good idea. The only bigger disaster than this movie is the fact that those were two hours of my life I will never get back. I found this thread while looking for comments on a Prometheus preamp and now I've been reminded of that day I walked into one of the worst movies I can recall. Thanks Avgoround.
Wow! Well I am truely amazed. I looked up the numbers online, and it appears (as of todays date) that Iron Man 3 - domestically - grossed some $385M dollars+. On the other hand, Oblivion has grossed ony $88million domestically!
Seriously?1! I walked out of that "BIG YAAAAWN" $20/TICKET 3D Iron 3 Imax experience, personally! - and I liked the first Ironman, and even the 2nd, ok. Just really felt this last one was more of the same repetitive iron costume foolery, and same old (don't get me wrong - I like RDJ) Tony Stark quips, that I've now grown tired of!
Did everyone here like THAT film, at least?..
Well, guess I'm the only one who liked the Oblivion! lol Good news is that maybe the Bluray disc will be so low in price that I'll be able to get Oblivion for like $7!! ..and I will be buying, thank you. I liked it.
It would seem one with your predilection would have to watch the movie twice, once for the technical aspects and a second time for the story, plot, etc. Or maybe it might be thrice?
As far as IMAX, I recently saw the latest Star Trek and it was great but after the movie and talking to the wife about the $120 it cost (popcorns and icees inclusive) for the 4 of us to go, it seems a bit hard to justify. The sound and the picture are great but I do enjoy watching a movie on my 60" plasma with 5.1 for $4 quite a bit as well.
