I actually cried during The Fault in Our Stars. Not from the movie itself but half way through I got so bored that I ran across the street to the liquor store and when I got back I sat on my balls.

I'm only kidding. I would never see The Fault in Our Stars.

I kept hearing people trash Edge sight unseen because of Tom Cruise, but wouldn't a movie in which you get to see him die a hundred different times make those people want to see it more?

/Seeing it later today

fisker: Nefarious: I thought Edge was quite enjoyable.  Maybe it will have legs on word of mouth but I'm not counting on it.

I was goddamned incredible and Bill Paxton was hilarious.

I recommend to anyone who can to go see it as soon as possible. You will not regret it.


Tom, is that you?

The Maha Rushie: oh wow. Big surprise.

Self-indulgent tripe appeals to emotionally immature people -or "women".

//the movie industry is going to keep milking that market for years


Put down the gun, Elliot.

StopLurkListen: Stantz: Incorrigible Astronaut: I kept hearing people trash Edge sight unseen because of Tom Cruise,


Which is a damn shame, because he's a charming actor, a charismatic leading man, and the greater percentage of his recent action movies have been eminently watchable.

The only downside to him is his obvious tax-dodgling religious beliefs, but as long as he keeps it to himself while he's spending 4 hours signing autographs and chatting to the people who have spent 24 hours camping out to see him at the premiere, he's ok in my book

My wife's office building a location for a movie scene with Robin Williams, Hugh Grant and Tom Arnold. When not shooting, Hugh Grant: took off with his nose up in the air, Robin Williams: sat in a corner reading a book, Tom Arnold: introduced himself to everyone in sight...


Tom Arnold: the WalMart greeter of acting.

Emily Blunt's name was Rita in Edge of Tomorrow.

Andie MacDowell's name was also Rita, in Groundhog Day.

I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise but I wouldn't mind seeing a movie where he gets killed over and over and over again.

cptrios: See, I know all of that, and the book/movie  still bothers me a little bit. A big part of me is just annoyed that people can continue to dip into the "adversity porn" well and it never goes dry. Take decent-to-good writing and use it to tell a story including one or two of cancer, autism, Alzheimer's, AIDS, child abuse, spousal abuse, or growing up in a poor, oppresively-governed, or war-torn country, and you've got a hit. When my girlfriend started reading "The Fault in Our Stars" and she told me what it was about, I couldn't help but groan and roll my eyes  even though I knew who the author was and that it was probably a good book.

People don't change much, and so we tend to like the same type of stories.

Mugato: And it's not like he didn't pay his dues. Do you think he woke up next to Rosanne every morning with a raging hard on? He deserves a purple heart.


Getting raped as a kid, turning into a raging alcoholic, and having to sleep with Roseanne means your dues have been paid upfront in perpetuity.

I went to see Chef. It rocked. Go see Chef.

I saw The Lunchbox two weeks ago and will see The Trip to Italy to complete my trifecta of awesome food-based movies. Then I'm out as far as going to the theater until award season.

Lsherm: propasaurus: What's Edge derivative of?

It's a sci-fi Groundhog Day.


BING!  First time, right out of the gate!

Lucky LaRue: Isn't The Fault in Our Stars supposed to be this generation's Titanic?  In terms of pre-/teen girls appeal, I mean.  Not content.


Reading the premise, it strikes me as more like that Mandy Moore cancer movie.
