VIDEO: Oblivion - best of the drone scenes
I loved Oblivion. I know it's not everyone's cup of Romulan Ale, but it was a great "small" scifi flick (tight cast, compact in scope). It owed more to Wall-E, Planet of the Apes, and 2001 A Space Odyessey, than Star Wars and the like.
Here's a cut of the drone scenes from the film. The art and sound design for these killer robo-bubbles was quite slick. They'd make perfect Big Bro villians for any game. Maybe even cool PCs if one was captured and reprogrammed. They're sort of like floating ED-209s from Robocop.
Also, it's fun to watch them bully Tom Cruise who's lot in life is to fix them.
