The Science Fiction Book Club cordially invites the London Movie Meetup Group to join us to see a the loony Tony Cruise's latest SF spectacular, Oblivion.
You know Tom Cruise will pull his hero face don't you?
In 2073, a 37 year-old former-Marine Commander Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed at an Earth nearly destroyed by an alien invasion 60 years ago. As part of a massive operation to extract the planet's remaining vital resources, he lives in an airborne "town" floating thousands of feet above the Earth.
His mission nearly complete, Jack's soaring existence comes crashing down when he rescues a 22 year-old female stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a series of events that forces Jack to question everything he knows about the war and its aftermath. In addition, after being captured by an insurgency led by 102 year-old Malcolm Beech (Morgan Freeman), Jack is told that the society in which he lives may in fact be a police state.
It's really pretty basic; the organiser and assistant organisers pick films, we meet beforehand and generally go for a drink after. It's a relaxed group which people dip in and out of depending on their film genre preference etc, so there are always new people at each meet.
We're not film snobs in this group- we see both thoughtful, foreign language films at indie cinemas and 'leave your brain at home' Hollywood blockbusters at multiplexes. Personally it depends on my mood. So if you like films, come along, watch a film and discuss it over a drink.
Please read the FAQ if you have any questions about the group, the organisers, emails and so on.
