This science-fiction movie also is based on Kosinski’s own graphic novel, telling the story of a future Earth that’s nearly ruined. The year is 2077, and Cruise plays Jack Harper, a drone repairman on the evacuated planet, which is being salvaged for vital resources. When he rescues a beautiful stranger (Olga Kurylenko, Centurion), Harper triggers a chain of events that leads him question everything he knows.
In many ways it has been a weirdly uphill climb for Axelle Carolyn to gain acceptance as the talented writer-director she clearly is. Female directors in any genre are somewhat of a rarity and always looked at somewhat differently - "Oh, she's not bad for a woman," etc - and that factor is amplified tenfold if you happen to be a woman working in horror, where social graces are often somewhat lacking. And in Carolyn's case the gender factor is only amplified by the fact she also happens to be married to Neil Marshall, director of Centurion, Dog Soldiers and The Descent. Which means she not only gets to deal with the pressures of being a girl playing in what is largely a boy's club...

It must be an exceptionally easy casting decision to hire Olga Kurylenko to play an object of desire. Which is not to say she is an object in any way, of course. In fact, Kurylenko seems to be constantly pushing me as a critic to redefine how I view her as an actor. Seeing her in "Quantum Of Solace" or "Hitman," she certainly seems like a lovely woman, but those roles don't challenge her, and they don't demonstrate any range at all. The first time I really paid attention to the choices she was making was in Neil Marshall's "Centurion," where »

Olga Kurylenko may not be an A-list talent just yet, but she’s definitely starting to prove herself amongst the Hollywood elite. After earning a role as the Bond girl in Quantum of Solace, she went onto grab parts in To The Wonder, Seven Psychopaths and Centurion. Now, with serious buzz surrounding her name and many in the industry starting to sit up and take notice of the Ukrainian born actress, her latest film, Oblivion, is about to make its way into theatres.
Directed by Joseph Kosinski, and starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman, the sci-fi epic tells the story of Jack Harper (Cruise), a drone repairman stationed on Earth. While on a mission to extract resources, he rescues a woman named Julia (Kurylenko) from a crashed spaceship. Though a stranger at first, her arrival sets off a series of events that make Jack question everything he thought he knew. »

I love monster movies. They have a power to them, to serve as a means to push characters into action and into facing things they wouldn’t normally face, whether it be the obvious danger from said monster, or the internal conflicts that they normally wouldn’t have the courage to address. That’s what made 2008′s Cloverfield so enjoyable to me. Sure it was a film about a giant creature kicking New York in its balls pretty much, but even more than the monster, it was about the main character Rob’s choice that no matter what, he would find the girl who he messed things up with and make sure that even if they died, that she would know how he really felt. The creature served as a catalyst to make Rob do that. When monster movies do that, use the creature as an opponent that forces characters »
