FullMoon's buried nugget
5 February 2012 | by (Novelist of The Final Version) – See all my reviews

Set in the year 3031 on a frontier planet light years away from Earth, a bizarre gang of desperadoes set on turning the tumbleweed town of Oblivion into their own private haven.

Made nearly 20 years before the arguably pretentious Cowboys and Aliens, Oblivion is an obscure FullMoon nugget. Although the costumes and sets appear cheap they're fitting enough in this outlandish western futuristic alien tale.  Despite the offbeat humour and pacing director Sam Irvin gives us forcefields, cyborgs, fistfights, spaceships, guns, gadgets and giant Harryhausen- like scorpions. Oblivion is an 90s film with and 1980's b-feel and 70s stock soundtrack heart. 

The 'Biff Tannen' villain Redeye played by Andrew Divoff makeup is effective. There's an odd mix pop-culture cast including Batman's Julie Newmar, Star Treks George Takei, singing legend Isaac Hayes, Master of the Universe and They Live's Meg Foster to name a few. There's also a leather-clad whip sporting  Musetta Vander who looks particularly fetching. 

If you like B-films and enjoy the unlikely list of genre crossovers Oblivion is the closest you'll get to a live action BraveStarr.
