I have two 'video' reasons not to see it - Groundhog Day and Starship Troopers.  Mush those two together, adding the jump suits from ST3 that were in the original book, and you've seen Edge of Tomorrow.

I saw it on Sunday on IMAX. It was enjoyable.

This description makes you not want to see it?? Because I was pretty iffy about seeing it before, and now that you put it that way, I think I actually do want to see it because that sounds frakkin' awesome!

Its a fun movie to watch in the theaters, it's actually the perfect summer blockbuster formula. Not sure if it will make crazy amount of money but the movie really is fun to see, should've seen it in IMAX. might still do.
 
2014-06-12 08:03:38 AM
I saw it Tuesday. It was really, really good. I'm glad I saw it in the theater. My wife even loved it.

25% Groundhogs Day, 25% Aliens, 20% Independence Day, 20% Starship Troopers, 10% The Longest Day . . . and 100% kick ass!

One reason NOT to watch it:

Paraphrased: "She could have treated her depression with vitamins" and "you are glib" medical advice by Tom Cruise, MD (crazy religion certified).

My comment to the wife after seeing the preview was : So it's groundhog day with space marines?

Oblivion was surprisingly good if predictable though. I will rent it when it comes out on dvd, but I'll skip the theater prices for it.

Copperbelly watersnake: Oblivion was surprisingly good if predictable though


See, this is what worries me. I thought Oblivion was pretty much a steaming pile (the "Everything Wrong With..." video for it on YouTube sums up my problems with it quite admirably). One thing that really drove me crazy about that movie is that Tom Cruise just does not have a good voice for narration. Why the hell was he the narrator anyway, when they had Morgan Freeman on the cast? (granted it seemed like Freeman had pretty much phoned in his performance; or the directing was just really uninspired)

For those of you who have seen both, and accepting that they are quite different movies, would you say that Edge of Tomorrow is about "just as good as" Oblivion, or would you say it is much much better, or worse? Just trying to get a feel for where the movie might stand.

Was a very good sci-fi action flick.  One of the best of the last couple of years.  Getting trounced in the U.S. market by dying teenagers, but is doing very well overseas.
 
2014-06-12 08:29:59 AM
Obviously made on the c heap, but I rather liked it. I felt a little bad until I discovered the actresses playing the French girls were legal.


What do you mean, I don't have the title right?
 
2014-06-12 08:30:08 AM
There's two reasons to see it.

#1) It's adapted from this...

#2) Directed by the guy who directed these

So the alternatives are yet another Wolverine movie, another Disney kids movie and 90 minutes of Family Guy jokes. Oh and kids dying of cancer. This summer kind of sucks.

Saw it last night - definitely better than expected once the action started, and far better than Oblivion. The first act should have been rewritten though... the absurdity of getting Cage into the action almost lost me.

Edge of Tomorrow

is substantially superior to Oblivion

Tom Cruise does not narrate any events in the movie (unless fictional "news clips" where Mr. Cruise's character is interviewed, along with several other characters, are considered narration; even then, those constitute short blurbs rather than extensive exposition).

At the outset, Mr. Cruise is decidedly playing against type.

Mr. Cruise's character dies many, many times, often very brutally.

Surprisingly, Wolverine isn't in the new X-Men movie that much. He's usually hanging out in the background.

/still only a so-so movie, though

Other than going with an absurdly cowardly ending (if you've seen it you know exactly what I mean) and a few "character did something they wouldn't have done because plot demanded it" moments it's a surprisingly solid Science Fiction movie.  Yes Cruise dies, a LOT.  I went to see it in a drive-in specifically to see him die... a LOT.  But the movie was better than expected and I can actually recommend it as a good action flick.

So yeah.... I'm sure my recommendation will now have everyone on Fark flocking to see it.

Tyrone Slothrop: A review I saw of the movie said that was the best thing about it.


For a PG-13 movie, they weren't shy about doing things like melting his face off, getting him speared, stepped on, blown up... for a movie about repeating the same day over and over again, they do a nice job mixing things up.

Tom Cruise. In a SF movie. About doing it over & over again, each time getting better, until you beat your ancient, implacable alien foe.

Yeah, pretty much this. The standard hollywood ultra-happy ending is unsatisfying but the other 95% of the film kicks a lot of ass.

Tom Cruise believes a lot of wacky, wacky shiat, but that wacky shiat doesn't cause the deaths of hundreds of children every year. Plus, he still makes some good movies while McCarthy is famous just for looking good in a bikini a decade or two ago.

Sorry, he just advices people on national tv to treat depression with vitamins. If you don't see the potential for death in this statement, it's not my fault. Also his obvious disregard for science IS on par with JMC. And if you are saying that just because he is still successful when compared to her and that's why we are hypocrites, then that's really more your fault, isn't it?

Does Emily Blunt get stark naked?  Probably not as it's Sci Fi and Tom Cruise is a homosexual.  I want to have so much sex with Emily Blunt that after a few dozen times she would be all like "oh my God, again?"  And I would be all like "you better believe it you sassy lassie".

Still, at least he mostly keeps it to himself. He isn't the face of the movement like McCarthy is with the anti-vaccers.

Medications that doctors don't really understand, that sometimes sorta work, sometimes don't do anything but kill your sex drive, and sometimes worsen depression until you are absolutely suicidal?  And that likely have hidden side effects that may give you health problems years later?

I'll take some damn vitamins, thanks.

 Perhaps we should never watch the Simpsons or make any more Simpsons references or link any Simpsons images, since Nancy Cartwright believes in the same wacky beliefs.    Just watching any classic Simpson's episode is basically telling a depressed person to go hang themselves.

I for one am going to take the strong moral stand and boycott any big budget studio summer action movie staring this vapid movie star and give my money to another big budget studio staring another vapid movie star.    I'm kinda a hero that way.

jrodr018: Sorry, he just advices people on national tv to treat depression with vitamins. If you don't see the potential for death in this statement, it's not my fault.


Uh, there's no potential for death in that statement, unless you think depressed people just fall dead out of the blue. If that were the case, half the country would be dead. If you're talking about suicides, then not even close to the same. Ultimately, it's their choice, unlike children, who can't decide if they get vaccines or not and the parents endanger someone over it.

Then there's the fact that if you're getting medical advice from fricking TOM CRUISE, you have bigger problems than just depression. That might be a symptom of severe brain damage.

So Tom Cruise said some stupid shiat on TV once, where's the evidence this led to deaths? Did anyone even listen to the guy without laughing?

Meanwhile, Jenny McCarthy constantly campaigns against vaccines and she got a hefty following just because she doused herself in that magical potion called "for the children!" that turns the average American into a blithering idiot.

No, movie theaters sucking so much is kinda to blame for that.

It was a pretty good movie, I want to see it again now.
