Another VERY good movie I saw recently - Edge of Tomorrow. Brilliant performances from both Tom Cruise & Emily Blunt. Set the bar for Sci-Fi movies this year, IMO

 

Agree, if I can enjoy a movie despite Tom Cruise in it really says a lot!

 

Pity though about the ending... Typical Hollywood copout, editor should have just cut the last 3 minutes from the ending and rolled the credits...

I think it's a consumer-driven thing, TBH. Increasingly, people wanting to see "how things finished" and leaving all the imagination out of it.

 

If it had finished any other way, or without the last 3 minutes - it also would have opened it up for sequels, spin-off publications and so on. But no. We want "closure" and to be spoon fed.

 

Having said that - it was still a fantastic movie.

Not sure how that would be a bad thing for Hollywood....

 

But I get your point ^_^ Still felt a bit cheated though, the rest was brilliant...

the thing about tom cruise is that he has made himself successful riding on the coat-tails of others..look at any one of the movies he is famous for and you will see superior actors that have been the primary contributor of the movie being good...Paul Newman...Jack Nicholson...Dustin Hoffman...Brad Pitt....the usual suspects in a PT anderson movie....etc etc

 

as for him and his acting...generally one dimensional...ironically the thing he is most famous for is his stupid running style

I'm a big Kevin Smith fan - love his work.

haven't seen a recent movie that has been really awesome - watched some older movies recently though that are great

High Fidelity

Grand Buhdapest hotel

Wolf of wallstreet

I enjoyed the Jobs movie - but must say i didn't like Steve Jobs much after that.

as you can see i don't go to movies much....

 

All time favorites are still the likes of A clockwork orange, The mission, once were warriors, I am slave.

There's a movie i watched years ago called Kids - directed by Larry Clark - i want that on DVD or download bad - if anyone ever comes across it please let me know.
