I would need to see the trailer again to say whatever I thought I meant.
I'm already not seeing those white cities in my head.
My passing impression upon viewing the trailer was that things in these futuristic movies seem shinier and faster-moving than I would like to see. I think this when I look at Minority Report

remake. And then I wonder if that's just what today's sci-fi looks like. When Tom Cruises' vehicle spins around those canyons, all I can think is that he's supposed to be inside operating the thing at such speeds.
Cynics are quick to pronounce that movies in general keep getting faster and dumber. I would like them to be wrong. I'd like there to be no reason why a film like Blade Runner
couldn't be made today.
I think Looper
were nice exceptions to the rule. They also seem like smaller, less commercial films. But this all comes back to my needing to see the Oblivion
