Edge of Tomorrow

This is the weirdest thing. A big budget Hollywood flick that adapted an obscure Japanese novel featuring mecha and thinly-veiled metaphors for WW2? How this that happen?

Good thing it did, because this is really cool. The plot is not particularly deep about the whole conflict, even though it’s at the forefront of the character arcs, but the actors squeeze a very interesting couple hours out of this.

All the actors do a great job, even in simple bit parts.

The ending is a complete cop-out so that they can make more sequels. That’s what stops this from reaching for the stars.


This is my place for ramblings about sequences of images that exploit the human visual limitation know as persistence of vision.
