Looking back, "TRON" was no doubt groundbreak- ing in its effects and bounced along at a satisfying clip, but it was nowhere near as good as your memory would have you believe. But as support swelled for a sequel, so was born "Legacy," which was really no better or worse than its source, which is to say, it was again visually stunning but mediocre. Its di- rector, Joseph Kosinski, de- served much credit for glossing and stylizing what little he had to work with. With his second effort, "Oblivion," he is given a far Movies )) Movie listings include those of the Movies at Midway. Times and listings may change. Oblivion: A veteran assigned to extract Earth's remaining resources begins to ques- tion what he knows about his mission and himself. Rated PG-]3.

Rated R. bigger sandbox in which to play, as it is based on his own (unpublished) graphic novel. The result is something that is at once familiar and divergent, as though he's inching ever closer to the next stratosphere of fllmmaking. Set six decades in the future, "Oblivion" imagines an Earth that has been savaged by aliens, and its moon destroyed. No longer hospitable to human life, the population catapulted to Saturn's moons, leaving behind a few "security" officers tasked with protecting the remaining fuel sources left on the planet, Jack Harper (played by Tom Cruise) is one such officer. His days are spent traveling between Earth and his home station in the sky, shared with partner Victoria (played b3r Andrea Risenborough). While all security personnel o , are supposed to undergo a men- tal reboot, Jack is still haunted by pre-war visions, which seem impossible given his age. On one particular reconnaissance mission, Jack encounters a crash with a crew of human cargo, including one that has guest starred in Jack's memory.

Rated PG-13. Jurassic Park 3D: During a preview tour, a theme park suffers a major power break- down that allows its cloned dinosaur exhib- its to run amok. Rated PG-13.

In what is seemingly rare for movie marketing today, one of the surprises of "Oblivion" is how much you - as an audience member - don't know.

Rated PG-13. Scary Movie 5: A couple begin to expe- rience some unusual activity after bring- his own, allowing you to look beyond all that until the film's third act, which accelerates to a mostly satisfactory explanation to all the twists and turns. For a good share of"Oblivi- on," the director lets us simmer in his special effects hot tub, bubbling with visuals and set at just the right narrative tempera- ture. It does not hurt one bit that our guide is Mr. Maverick himself, who has been a round the sci-fi block a time or two ("Minority Report," "War of the Worlds"). It's a dialed-down, compassionate approach that is one of the most humanistic the star has provided in quite some time. Riseborough elevates what could be considered a throw- away role.as the doting partner into something more as well. When Jack resists protocol, !

Yet it's still ponderous as to what purpose the C.H.U.D.-like hu- man cave-dwellers truly serve. Were it not for Freeman as their leader, "Oblivion" may have felt even longer than its already-heavy two-plus-hour runtime. The film is also buoyed by M83, a French electronica group that received orchestrat- ed backup, that finds just the right times to creep in with its "Inception"-like overtones. And while the f'tim does not have goals as lofty as Christopher Nolan's sci-fi brain-twister, it satisfies in ways that, unlike cer who is up for a major promotion takes a professional risk after she meets a col- lege-bound alternative school kid who just might be the son she gave up years ago in a secret adoption.
