My fav scene is when Donnie wahlberg shoots Bruce.

I like the culmination of that scene and how it comes outta nowhere yet it's expected given the history between the characters
That and cause it's a very crucial scene to the big reveal in the end.

I remember i saw that film and no one spoiled the ending for me but it didn't blew me away or anything like that, i thought it was a cool twist but ppl made it seem like it was ground breaking story telling at the time just for that twist.

Spoiler for Well.....:
What was so cool about it for me was going back and watching it a second time and realizing it made perfect sense he was dead in all of those scenes. The one in the restaurant with his wife especially. First viewing you just think she's pissed off at him for being late again. Second viewing you get that she went to the restaurant as a symbolic gesture to their past only.


Probably don't need a spoiler since everyone knows, but just in case.

I decided to dig into my DVD collection and dig a double feature...




Coffy (trailer) - YouTube





Foxy Brown Official Trailer #1 - Harry Holcombe Movie (1974) HD - YouTube


Pam Grier kicking ass to the music of Roy Ayers and Willie Hutch.

It doesn't get any better than that!

Same here. That part chokes me up every time I watch that movie. I'm getting a little choked up right now just thinking about it.

Logic and coherence be damned, I really liked Interstellar.

Tarantino is such a hammy actor, kinda distracts me from some of the scenes.

Live Die Repeat:Edge of Tomorrow

Surprisingly lighthearted. It rips off more than its fair share from other recent sci-fi: you have the groundhog-day effect thing from source code, the quasi mechanical-exoskeleton alien army and scene almost exactly like the one from the Matrix Revolutions .

Too much Tom Cruise relinquishing his seemingly only way of plucking heart strings via the reprisal of his contrived sensitive guy shtick like he brings the script for Jerry Mcguire to every film and tells the screen writers of the current film "get some of that bs in there"

The film has glaring plot-holes, action that feels muddled and doesn't "pop." Aesthetically it tries to walk the line between District-9's low-fi, stripped-down illustration and anime cartoon(think pacific rim; the man heroin in LDR has a giant anime style sword), which sounds good in theory but is not successful. Like the humor and lightheartedness of the subject matter, the in-cohesive aesthetic also leaves the viewer confused as to emotional response attempting to be emitted; in trying to find universal appeal the film achieves less of any.

This complaints could be directed at any of Tom's sci-fi films you may suggest. Not so, i say. I was genuinly excited for the film: Tom cruise-whether due to scientologist beliefs or not-manages to be pretty good in sci-fi action category. Minority Report being easily one of the best science fiction films of the post-2000 era. War of the Worlds set pieces were dramatic and didn't waste time with cliche tom cruise characterization.

Live Die Repeat/Edge of Tomorrow actually got fairly decent reviews. Be warned, the movie is not worth it, go watch Snowpiercer on netflix instead

Have you seen any action / sci-fi better than Snowpiercer this year?

While I do love Snowpiercer and I do prefer it over Edge of Tomorrow, your thoughts on EOT are probably the most negative I've heard thus far, I'm quite surprised. I'm not a Tom Cruise fan either, besides Minority Report, and obviously Edge of Tomorrow isn't the most creative action / thriller we've seen this year, but I thought it did very well for what it was and wasn't trying to prove itself in areas it doesn't belong. Fortunately for me I guess I didn't have any glaring memories of Tom Cruise's contrived Hollywood personalities burning in the back of mind while I was watching it.

Me neither I suppose the film served as a reinforcer.

I'm genuinely curious and not trying to incite an argument when I ask, what did the film strike you as doing very well?

I'll admit the constantly repeated "upward-facing dog" yoga stance exhibited by Emily Blunt was visually pleasing.

"Upward-facing dog" lol.

While it was obviously rehashing things that have been done many times before I did find it quite stylistically pleasing throughout, I haven't seen it since the day it was released in theaters so it'll be hard to pick out particular scenes from memory but the most lasting one in my mind I think was the first time they're dropped on the beach and the first time he gets cornered and killed. I found that whole sequence pretty intense, well layed out, well shot, well choreographed. When I go see action movies I try to judge them only as such, an action movie, dedicated to building elaborate sets, extensive choreography, suitable soundtracking, memorable characters (I think Blunt's character and her public persona were pretty acceptable in a goofy comic-book kind of way), and state of the art technical effects. I try not to go into an action movie focusing primarily on an interesting plot, and I know that's not a very critical way to view a movie, considering plot is always my primary concern in all other genres, but over time I've found going to action movies a lot more enjoyable with that mind set. I think Edge of Tomorrow fulfilled all of the above criteria to an extent, I doubt I'll ever watch it again, I'm not giving it an Oscar or anything, I just never found myself regretting the ticket price when the credits rolled. I suppose I've just developed a habit of being less artistically critical towards action blockbusters and sort of give them relaxed treatment.

I enjoyed it about as much as I enjoyed Pacific Rim.
