OK, SPOILERS below, don't read after Ken's quote if you don't want to see them...

If you're implying the movie stole from "Independence Day", you are sadly mistaken.

In "Independence Day", black box-office champion Will Smith played would-be astronaut Captain Hiller, who with a white sidekick pilots a small alien spacecraft to the enormous alien mothership, which they blow up with an atom bomb. In "Oblivion", white box-office champion Tom Cruise played actual astronaut Captain Harper, who with a black sidekick pilots a small alien spacecraft to the enormous alien mothership, which they blow up with an atom bomb. Totally different.

Oh. Well. I stand corrected. Thanks for explaining it to me.

I will admit I was surprised when #52 showed up.

I thought the movie was okay. There were enormous holes in the plot, but what can you do in only a hundred minutes or so?

The swimming pool bothered me. Why the heck was that in the movie? The skinny-dip sequence was superfluous, no?

"Superfluous skinny dipping scene" is an oxymoron. Naked hot chicks are always appropriate.

Default Hard.

It's hard to argue against naked hot chicks. It's even harder to argue against hot naked chicks. IMO

Unfortunately for Julia #1-48 and #53-100 showed up the next day.
