  • Soulful, hunky, record collecting dreamboats

    I saw Oblivion last night. I quite enjoyed it, even though it is preposterous and Tom Cruise is rubbish. Me and my son are wild for Olga Kurylenko, though.

    Cruise somehow manages to have a woodland retreat in an otherwise desolate future earth, where he relaxes and does ancient shit like reading books and listening to vinyl records. He has a Duran Duran lp, and plays Led Zep and Procul Harum, although I would have preferred it if he´d played Girls on Film.

    Vinyl seems to have moved on from being a signifier for nerdiness and social ineptness, and now it symbolises soulfulness and a noble desire for "real" stuff. Channing Tatum in The Vow is also a vinyl-loving soulful hunk.

    Is this good news for us lot? Is a groaning expedit sexier than a bright red Porsche? Does hoarding vinyl mean we are better lovers?

    Saw this on a plane recently. Utter tosh cobbled together from ideas pinched from any number of better movies. Thumbs down from me for Olga. Too vacant. The English lass was more my cuppa, strangely. Perhaps because I'd already seen her in the previous movie (sth gangstery/HKish with James McAvoy)

    Hollywood jumping on the vinyl revival bandwagon?

    No, just more considerate ... think extended foreplay rather than the easy thrill of a single click download (no spoonerism intended).

      I couldn´t think of any apart from the Planet of the Apes one where humans all live underground and worship a bomb, and I don´t know if I´d describe that as better.

      And Tom pulled his Top Gun "Gee, that was close one but no biggie for the Maverick" face a few times.

        Maybe I've just seen too many crap scifi films over the years. The chase scene was out of Star Wars, for a start.

          Andrea Riseborough - although you may lose the horn if you see her playing Margaret Thatcher in The Long Road To Finchley. Alternatively if you like The Buzzcocks and wanna see her in the buff, check out Sam Taylor-Wood's short film Love You More.

            I have almost come to terms with the fact that I enjoy new boring sci-fi films just for one exciting robot or gimmick.
