Just got back from Edge of Tomorrow. While I was excited to see it, the movie looks like a box office dud for Cruise.  I really really liked it though.  Emily Blunt is great and Cruise was very good also.  The third act was a little off on pace but overall it was a great sci-fi movie.

It's a shame people write off Cruise's movies before they are released because of their dislike of him. I couldn't care about his private life, he's good at his job, which is making entertaining movies. I've felt he's had a solid track record as far as I'm concerned for the past few films he's made. Looking forward to Edge of Tomorrow, unfortunately not enough time go to the cinema's.

I don't care about his personal life but he's not an actor I'm excited to see. I feel the same way about Tom Hanks. Both these dudes don't do anything that isn't "safe" at this point in their careers.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. How did The Wolf of Wall Street do better? Walter Mitty was actually good.

I didn't expect to hear Rogue Wave. I hadn't heard Lake Michigan in years.

I don't care about Tom Cruise's personal life. I'm not a fan of his acting. He's way overrated.

Edge of Tomorrow was pretty good but like mentioned the last act pacing was kind of off. Now I have to go see Oblivion.

Twelve O'Clock High:

Great WWII drama about the daylight bombing runs done from London.The use of real footage was a good touch and Gregory Peck gives a great performance.

Decision Before Dawn:

A great WWII spy film. I liked how it was filmed location and the rubble you saw was real and not a just a set.Gets really tense near the end.

I don't go crazy over Tom Cruise movies, but Jack Reacher was good. I thought it would be generic but it wasn't.

X-Men Days of Future Past: 3.5/5

Personally I liked X2 and First Class better but this was still entertaining and it fixed a lot of what was wrong in the Xmen universe.

Her

 

To me it seemed like Samantha was just a human troll that was just messing with him. The ending was weak I thought. There should have been a twist where maybe Samantha cheats on him with the male OS and never returns. 3.5/5

I saw How to Train Your Dragon.  I expected it to be awesome, and I was not disappointed. 4.5/5 at least (I would probably give it 5/5 but someone would probably get pissed at me about it)

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) - 4/5

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) - Couldn't keep watching, really disliked it. The beginning was good but once they were in the factory for awhile it just was bad.

Saw Edge of Tomorrow on Friday night in Imax 3D.. pretty solid movie, wasn't sure about the plot going into it.  solid 3/5 .. also watched The Art of the Steal with Kurt Russell and Matt Dillon last night, Kurt doesn't do a lot of movies anymore, but this one was good as well -- 3/5

Is the new Cruise movie better than Collateral?

Speaking of Cruise movies, I thought Oblivion was way better than I figured it would be.

Agreed. Had normal expectations going in and found it to exceed them.

Edge of Tomorrow was great. Wasn't a hard-hitting film but was creative and entertaining.

X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Very good, but probably liked First Class and X2 more.

Jobs.

Very solid, Kutcher was very good as Steve Jobs.

Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey - 3/5

2nd viewing. This is the one film (maybe the 1st too) that does time travel correctly. When they plan on changing something, it happens instantly.

This movie is way better than people remember it being. Just watched it again 2 weeks ago.

It looks low budget though with the way that it's shot, maybe that's on purpose? Cause the budget was double the original film and that movie looks much better.

Yup. He always stood out, even when initially people didn't really like the movie. It's such a different tone than the first movie, most sequels won't even attempt to do something so different.

I went into it thinking it was going to be like every other comedy sequel and was surprised by how funny and original it was. I guess a lot people didn't like since it's so damn bizarre.

I loved that movie when I was a kid. That Easter Bunny scene? Terrifying.

Are you talking about Donnie Darko? Yeah that terrified me with the creepy ass bunny.
