Tom Cruise stars in a sci-fi tale of duplicity and deception in “Oblivion”. As a drone tech stationed on the ruined Earth, he slowly comes to discover that all is not as it seems with his assignment.

Bond: Daniel Craig

Classic, Cheese or Crap?: CLASSIC

It tempts me to create a new category. James Bond: Classic, Cheese, Crap or Pretty Good?
