There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya?

The day after the Edge of Tomorrow” — The Dissolve crew discuss the Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt-starring sci-fi Groundhog Day with high praise for originality, wit and charisma.

“There are lots of things to talk about here, including the fact that Edge Of Tomorrow may be the best videogame movie ever made, despite not being based on a videogame. But first, I want to put in a word for Tom Cruise. What struck me about him here, in his most appealing performance in years, is how much of a difference his movie-star presence makes in a movie of this scale. There are a lot of appealing young actors in Hollywood right now, but I’m not convinced any can hold the center of a film like Cruise does here. It’s a big challenge for a performer to have any presence at all in a $200 million CGI production—here’s looking at you, Aaron Taylor-Johnson—and Cruise’s work in Edge Of Tomorrow makes me realize how important humans can be in our age of post-human blockbusters.”
