Editorial Reviews

On a frontier light-years from the O.K. Corral, a bizarre gang of futuristic desperados have their sights set on turning the tumbleweed town of Oblivion into their own private playground. Their lizard like leader, Redeye (Andrew Divoff, Wishmaster), pumps lawman Marshall Stone (Michael Genovese) full of lead in a deadly shootout just outside of Miss Kitty’s (Julie Newmar, Batman) Kat House and begins terrorizing the town’s inhabitants.
Meanwhile, Stone’s long-lost pacifist son Zack (Richard Joseph Paul) and his native sidekick Buteo (Jimmy F. Skaggs) are escorted into town by the eerie undertaker Gaunt (Carel Struycken, The Addams Family) to pay their respects at the Marshall’s funeral. Rendered helpless by Redeye, the tough-as-nails Cyborg Deputy (Meg Foster) and the Marshall’s old friend Doc Valentine (George Takei, Star Trek) team up with Zack to take back the troubled town in a final unearthly showdown.

I love this movie... I first saw it eight years ago and only recently hunted it (and its sequel, Backlash) down as an exorbitantly-priced VHS, even though it meant playing it on a tiny, tinny-sounding TV/VCR.
So, it's a "Sci-Fi Western." Let me see... Was it hokey? Heck, yeah! That's what MAKES the movie. Basically, toss Clash of the Titans, the original Star Trek series, The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai Across the Eighth Dimension, and a little Jim Henson puppetry into a blender, and you've got a fairly representative perception of what it's like. I have no idea what the budget was, but what it looks like is NOT mainstream Hollywood, NOT trendy-Indie, but very hip and quirky and campy on a well-designed shoestring budget.
The characters are waaay over the top... waaay waaay OVER over the top... even the seemingly straight-played parts by Richard Joseph Paul and Jackie Swanson (Little House on the Prairie really was this tragic, it just wasn't meant to be). And YES, George Takei pokes fun at his Star Trek pigeonholing with wincingly blatant one-liners, but it's so FUN to see him cutting loose (Sulu was awfully straight-laced). Musetta Vander is absolutely DELICIOUS as the black leather-clad, electric whip-wielding Lash. If you've always had a soft spot for really wicked women (with a Bettie Page thing going), you'll fall for her after seeing this. Carel Struycken is so freaking cool, I want to hug him. His voice (I sooo dig his voice) and kind of innocent savant demeanor (but with bits of cold practicality peeking through) reminded me of Andre the Giant in The Princess Bride.
If you live for the credits, here you go:
Directed by Sam Irvin and written by Charles Band, Peter David (I), Mark Goldstein (II), John Rheaume, and Greg Suddeth.

So whaddaya get when USS Enterprise crew members, The Lone Ranger and Tonto, Lurch from the Addams Family, A retired Catwoman, Ray Harryhausen-like monsters, a Reptilian space pirate, and an Electric whip-cracking Bettie Page cross the universe?... This movie. Way over the top, never supposed to be taken seriously, so sit back and enjoy the ride.
I sure as hell did and always will.

Not since robotic cowboys strutted the dusty streets of Westworld has a sci-fi western caused such a ruckus! Oblivion's a rough and tumble frontier outpost with all sorts of bizarre creatures wandering about. But when Redeye (half man, half lizard and all mean) swaggers into town, all hell breaks loose!
Featuring a posse of favorites including Julie Newmar as the racy saloon hostess, George Takei as the tipsy local "Doc," Carel Struycken (The Addams Family) as an eerie mortician and Meg Foster playing a robocop with a quick draw and a heart of gold-plate.

I'd never heard of this movie, it popped up in my recommendations on Amazon. Being a curious sort, and always living in the hope of finding movies to collect for future viewings, I decided to give it a chance (learning that Julie Newmar was in the cast was the deciding factor).
I was more than pleasantly surprised (they had me with the streetlights/fans/girders): loved the art direction/set design. Filled with in-jokes of the hit or miss variety (some brought out a laugh, some were groans), this was a standard plot for Westerns. The prodigal son reluctantly returns to his home town and he's not warmly welcomed by the residents. That alone wouldn't have been enough to hold my interest, it was the rest, the odd bits that popped up now and then, that made me enjoy this romp through the wild west (after taking a turn through The Twilight Zone first).
Loved most of the characters but especially Julie Newmar as Miss Kitty and Meg Foster as Stell Barr. The only two clinkers in the cast were Musetta Vander as Lash and George Takei as Doc Valentine (trading on his time with Star Trek). They crossed too far over the line and went from being caricatures to just plain grotesque. The problem with this type of humor is that it works, because everyone is in on the joke, or it doesn't, because it misses being funny by a smile. "Jim....Beam me up." Or the Bingo sequence during a funeral, funny once, but they just wouldn't let it go. That's the only fault I could find with this piece; knowing and not knowing when to let a joke settle in on its own.

I liked it, I'm keeping it, and I'm looking forward to watching it again sometime.

Bought to replace a VHS tape. Full Moon has mostly come through for me with B-movie fantasy and science fiction.

Oblivion is no different and it is always a joy to see forgotten stars shining once again, even in these B-features. Cowboys and Aliens (not the Harrison Ford version) with a mix of western and science fiction. Lots of comedy and relatable morality.

Stars Julie Newmar (as Miss Kitty), Jimmy Skaggs, Carrel Struychen (from Witches of Eastwick), Meg Foster (looking hot as usual) and George Takei (as the town's doctor/cyberneticist). Oh, and some other people.

Several years ago, I remember watching a VHS enjoying my beverage and eating my popcorn as I watched through the previews. On this particular movie (I don't remember what it was), there were trailers for several films that I had never heard of before. One of them was for OBLIVION. I don't know why, but I found the trailer for OBLIVION to be hilarious and decided that if I ever had an opportunity to rent the movie, then I would. It took me almost a decade to locate a place that had the movie to rent, but now I've finally watched the movie whose trailer I found so humorous and intriguing all those years before.

OBLIVION is set over two thousand years in the future on a barren planet that is reminiscent of the Western landscapes of the United States. In fact, not only does the landscape remind one of the American wild west, so do the way people live and how they behave. For instance, mining is popular occupation of spectators, gunfights are common, and horses are a relatively common form of transportation. However, despite the similarities, there are also a lot of differences, e.g. the bank has an ATM; there are spaceships; the outback is populated my giant, ferocious, flesh-eating scorpions; and one of the chief villains is a humanoid reptile from another planet.

The story begins with a shootout between the Marshall of Oblivion (Mike Genovese) and the power-hungry lizard-man, Redeye (Andrew Divoff). Redeye has set a trap for Marshall Stone and Marshall Stone falls for it. With his death, Redeye takes over the town of Oblivion and begins turning the place into his home base for his various illegal activities. News of Marshall Stone's death reaches his only son, Zach (Richard Joseph Paul) who is working in the Outback mining for the highly precious metal dreconian.
