Tom Cruise's "Oblivion"came out this weekendand movie critics repeatedly compared it to nearly every other Sci-Fi film including Disney and Pixar's "Wall-E."

Here's what Variety had to say:

"It all looks and sounds a bit like a live-action remake of “Wall-E,” right down to the way the protagonist, spurred by natural curiosity and an unexpected love interest, finds himself on a dangerous unauthorized mission."

That isn't the first time two vastly different titles have been compared.

A recent thread on Reddit asked users to name completely unrelated films that share similar storylines.

We've compiled a few of the best.

1. "Oblivion" and "Wall-E"

Plot: One of the last drone repairman on Earth finds a spacecraft which leads to a discovery that puts the fate of mankind in his lap.
