At least one of the movies Jason names could be seen as a spoiler, so… spoiler warning, obviously. Don’t come crying to me if you click on that link and didn’t want to know.
Anyway, this seems to be the consensus about Oblivion: it’s pretty, it’s got good action, and so incredibly derivative that you’ll get a little bored. Aside from the movies Jason named (at least one of which is pretty apparent from the trailer, but whatever), there are supposedly nods to Planet of the Apes, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars, Mad Max, La Jetée, Minority Report, The Omega Man and Blade Runner.
EDIT: A recent LA Times article cites a bunch of reviews talking about Oblivion’s derivative nature. Give it a look-see if you’re curious.
