A Great Guilty Pleasure!
11 December 1999 | by (Snohomish) – See all my reviews

Oblivion is a low-budget cheesy space-western with so many in-jokes and running gags and stereotypes that it has twice been the cornerstone of video parties at my place!

The story is coherent-but-flimsy. The real fun is in the bizarre special-effects, the character references, the costumes, etc.

To enjoy this movie, make sure you know what the major players have done before. Keep it in mind. Listen to every word. Have half-a-dozen other people there. With lots of snacks or beer.

Oh, and the plot? Who cares. Much like a Batman or Addam's Family movie (for several reasons, both), this movie is about look, feel, and fun. Plot is almost incidental.
