In "Oblivion," moviegoers are guaranteed to have flashbacks to several film that the ambitious sci-fi flick clearly draws on.

Reviewers are noting that, while visually stunning, "Oblivion" borrows heavily from several classics, partly because director Joseph Kosinksi intended it as an homage to '70s movies including "Silent Running" and "Logan's Run."

Warning: MAJOR SPOILERS. Do not read until after you've seen the movie.
