MadKItty Film Fest Update
#11: Edge of Tomorrow
Edge of Tomorrow was really good. Emily was amazing. Tom was great. Bill Paxton was delightful. The aliens’ kind of sucked. There is a deus ex machina, but whatever. It’s popcorn sci-fi. When they try to make cerebral sci-fi, you get Prometheus, so I just dealt with it.
I’m bummed it kind of flopped. I think it might have been more appealing to action flick lovers if it was rated R. There were more than a few moments where I was wondering to myself, “There should be more blood here,” which is an odd thing to think. When you see it a couple of years from now on HBO or Netflix, you are going to kick yourself for skipping it in the theater.
Also, it was the first movie I saw in IMAX 3D. I’m usually against IMAX movies in regular theaters because it isn’t in a “real” IMAX theater, but we took the risk and wow— it was something. That extra few feet on the screen genuinely added to the experience.
