Yes, I am very late to the party on these but they’re cool and it’s the movie I am most hyped for this year so that is excuse enough to post them this late in the game.
Movies, Trailers / Comments Off on ‘American Made’ Trailer, in which Tom Cruise acts
Here’s a quick fact for you: Tom Cruise is 54 years old. I am pretty sure that he has a Lazarus Pit stashed away somewhere. Here’s another fact: when he’s not doing an endless string of action films, Tom Cruise is a pretty good actor. He’s got a new movie coming out this fall that may or may not remind us of that. Let’s take a look.

The Universal Monsters Shared Universe gets a catchier name, a logo, a musical theme, and an announcement of their next movie, and a cast photo. Cool.

Editorial, Recommends / Comments Off on Edge Of Tomorrow Is The Best Sci-Fi In Years And You Can Own It Today
I’m not one to blindly promote products just for the sake of information, so a Blu-Ray release doesn’t usually inspire me to comment. However, when that film is Edge Of Tomorrow, and there’s a chance you may have dismissed it at the cinema on account of the worst marketing campaign in recent memory, then I have to try and change your mind. For it’s not just Tom Cruise’s best film in years, it’s also one of the finest slices of sci-fi escapism you’ll ever watch.
News / Comments Off on This Week Behind The Scenes: Sept 1 – 5
This week from around the web, a little peek at what’s going on with some of your favourite shows and movies. Make sure to check out the extra adorable piglets making a guest appearance on Cougar Town.
Podcast / Comments Off on Podcast Episode 67: X-Men Days of Future Past, Mario Kart 8, Edge of Tomorrow, Chef, and E3 Predictions
It’s that time again for the Awesome Friday on a Monday! In this episode we have a lot to talk about including all the Star Wars News, The Ant-Man situation, the game Mario Kart 8, and the movies X-Men: Days of Future Past, Edge of Tomorrow, and Chef. This episode clocks in at nearly 90 minutes so get yourself comfy and let’s get to it!
This is one of those times that Hollywood confuses me. Here they’ve gone and made a fun, exciting, engaging, and intelligent sci-fi action movie and what little marketing its had has made it seem like something it’s really not: generic.
Yeah, you’re reading this right folks. Edge of Tomorrow is pretty great and you should totally see it.
Recommends / Comments Off on Something for the Weekend: Minority Report
Do you enjoy movies that play with time? That deal with predestination paradoxes? Or causal loops? Or Tom Cruise running just as fast as he can? The next movie that features all of these things, Edge of Tomorrow, comes out in two weeks time. In the mean time why not check out the last movie that dealt with all of these things: Minority Report.
It’s weird to think that Minority Report is 12 years old as it still completely holds up. It’s one of director Steven Spielberg’s best efforts of the 2000s, combining real thought-provoking ideas with action scenes that will remind you that’s he’s pretty much the best at this.
You’ll also get a solid performance from Tom Cruise, one of Colin Farrell’s big shows from his first big year, and veteran Max Von Sydow chew up the scenery like it was candy (just like he hopefully will in Star Wars next year.
All in all a great movie to take in this weekend. Grab your copy from one of these links and help us keep the lights on.
Thanks and have yourself a great weekend!
Trailers / Comments Off on Edge of Tomorrow Long Trailer: How Many Times
In case you weren’t sure if you wanted to see Edge of Tomorrow here’s a long trailer to try to convince you.
Trailers / Comments Off on Edge of Tomorrow Trailer #2: This Movie Appears To Have A Plot
Tom Cruise’s future war groundhog day movie does seem to have a story, for better or for worse.
Trailers / Comments Off on Edge of Tomorrow Trailer: Groundhog Day in a Future War Starring Tom Cruise.
Edge of Tomorrow may be a fitting title for a guy who is basically living out a nightmare version of Groundhog Day, waking up after dying in combat only to be forced to relive that combat over and over again. I, hover, preferred the original title All You Need is Kill.
Either way there is a trailer now so let’s take a look.
Podcast / Comments Off on Podcast Episode 46: Recaps! 42, The Place Beyond The Pines, Oblivion, and FanExpo
It’s been 3 weeks since our last podcast and holy moly a whole bunch of stuff has happened. This episode is mostly recaps including the following:
As always we love to hear from you, so if you have any comments of feedback or hate mail you can leave comments below or follow us on twitter:
Meanwhile, sit back, relax and enjoy your flight.
Do you ever read or watch science fiction? Have you ever had your mind blown at some plot twist or big reveal? Has a story ever made you think about things in this world in a new and different way?
Oblivion is a film that really wants to have this kind of impact on you but doesn’t. That’s not to say that it’s a bad movie just that while it is good, or rather pretty okay, it isn’t great.
