I was pleasantly surprised by edge of tomorrow as well. Great special effects too.

I have Edge of Tomorrow but I've not watched it yet. Looks ljust like Source Code to me. I do find it frustrating that there aren't more new ideas for films (and all these remakes of films just a few years old? Ridiculous)

You're right in that it's a similar premise to source code, which I also liked, but thankfully the sfx in it and slightly different aim (aliens) differentiate it enough for me.

Unlike some other films which are essentially the same, e.g. armageddon and deep impact.

Watched 'The calling' with Susan Serandon, movie about a serial killer

As didn't sit and watch it exclusively, and not do anything else, i cant recommend it.

Shouldn't have been a surprise - it has got Tom hardy in it (see start of thread)!

Fantastic four. Don't. Just don't.

The entire movie felt like a 1.5 hour trailer.

In fact, you know when they say all the best bits are in the trailer? Well this is worse. The trailer was like a directors cut version as they cut a whole scene from the film which may have actually saved it

Thanks for the warning, I was thinking about seeing this film but it's a remake of a film that's only 10 years old and has less Jessica Alba in it.

It is meant to be a reboot but it failed epicly. The original ones weren't good either however were better.

Sue storm looks good, but that's about it.

According to the internets there may have been issues in production and the studio, Fox, got involved and this what ruined it.

The director actually apologised for the film 😕

Wishing I went to see rogue nation which has received very good reviews
