Dax, I had read good things about it as well. But it sucks. It is just reeves gunning down bad guys for 100 minutes. It is repetitive and dull.

I don't recall anyone mentioning this one, caught it on HBO and it was terrific, best Science fiction in awhile. Surprised it wasn't a blockbuster, the marketing must have sucked.

Edge of Tomorrow - Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton

Very hard to discuss without spoilers. The premise is great - Groundhog Day for a soldier journalist embedded in a D-Day alien battle. Lots of action, great twists, some nice humor moments and some nice heartwarming moments sprinkled throughout.

It has a 90% ratting on rotten Tomatoes which is darn impressive for an action/adventure....

I watched the official trailer and it really underwhelms - the movie is good, the trailer misses the point..

I agree with this... Best SciFi action heroine since Ripley.

They usually don't make great movies from King's books.

Don't know much about it, but King wrote the screenplay, at least, so he's one of the 'they' on this one...

Where I live, one of the theaters shows films for $5 one day midweek and popcorn is $2, many times the theatre is so empty it is like going by oneself or just with the person you went with as more than once the audience was 10 or less people. This is a multiplex showing "new" movies, and I was there for the 6 or 7 o'clock show...

This last time Paddington - and it was right after opening weekend. There were four people (including me) in that theatre of the cinema. I have no idea how many people were seeing other movies. Granted it is for families, but it was done by 830.
