Episode #288: Legacy - Edge of Tomorrow

September 14, 2022

Happy hump day friends and neighbors! For this week’s podcast Mike and Matt chat about a modern Sci-Fi classic Edge of Tomorrow starring Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise. Distracting topics include reading books, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is crap, and modern Sci-Fi.

Well here we go again another Legacy film and you know we only pick Legacy films we really like. Edge of Tomorrow is a great modern Sci-Fi film that doesn’t get enough recognition. This is one of the great modern Sci-Fi flicks that’s the complete package. Great story, great acting, and amazing CGI that stands the test of time. It looks as good if not better than most of the CGI today. Tom Cruise knocks it out of the park as a soldier that doesn’t fight but has to learn how quickly. Emily Blunt steals the show as the resident badass killer of alien scum! 

If you have not seen Edge of Tomorrow it really is a must watch movie if you are into action and Sci-Fi. Mike and Matt both agree this movie is almost perfect, awarding it 4.5 out of 5 Reels.    

For next week's pod we finally head back to the movie theaters to watch See How They Run. A comedy murder mystery period film starring Sam Rockwell and Adrien Brody. Thanks for listening and we will chat with you next week!
