Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow
Published on June 17, 2014
Because my husband gave in to my request to watch The Fault in Our Stars, he demanded that we watch Edge of Tomorrow. Ahh, the beauty of marriage! :p
I agreed right away even if I don’t really like watching Tom Cruise movies. Don’t get me wrong. Tom Cruise is a good actor. But for some odd reason, I always fall asleep whenever I watch him. Even my favorite Jerry Maguire and A Few Good Men made me snooze. Vanilla Sky made me sleep the longest, in case you’re curious. Another thing I dislike with Tom Cruise movies is the fact that he whispers all the freakin’ time. Every time I watch him, I find myself saying, “Dude, speak louder!!!” Hahaha! Anyway, I wanted to be the good and submissive wife to my husband yet my mind was already set to falling asleep inside the theater! But as they say, there’s a first time for everything. For the first time, my eyes didn’t even blink!!! Good job, Tom! Great job, Je! Nyahaha!
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I really liked Edge of Tomorrow. More than the gripping plot, brilliant acting and cool stunts, the best thing about this movie is its ability to let the audience think while being engrossed in what was happening. I kept on telling myself, “I can do this. I can understand this.” Hahaha!
Thank God Tom Cruise wasn’t whispering. :p
