    So why does this movie need its own thread? Because a lot of people constantly complain about the lack of originality coming out of Hollywood. And it's true. Lately we have been blasted every year with sequels, remakes, reboots, teenage books into movies, comic book movies, etc. So when something original finally comes out, no one watches it. It is one of the best movies I have seen this year. Last weekend in its opening weekend it tragically finished third in the US. This weekend looks like another trouncing.

    90% on rottentomates. 8.2 on IMDB. Forget your prejudices and your preconceptions and watch this movie. After you do, come back and thank me ;)

    Watching it tonight in 3D at 2255.

    I was told that the 3D is not overdone ( I normally hate 3D ) and that I should give this one a try. I'm thanking you early.

    technically, this movie is based on a book which itself is a sci-fi/military version of the movie Groundhog Day

    I just saw it last night. Excellent movie: well paced, right amount of comedic relief and you really feel for the characters. Highly recommend it to anyone.

    Would watch again.

    All You Need Is Kill, a better title than the film has, which I thought would be titled "Live, Die, Repeat" after having seen the first trailer, which I kinda liked back then.

    Good movie.
    Ending is a bit hollywood, but i thoroughly enjoyed it

    Basically it's a shooter solo game with unlimited lives and no saves. You die, you start over from the beginning, until you learn the play.
    But with astounding graphics and good characters.

    The trailer doesn't do the movie justice. Probably the best movie I have seen in awhile that isn't a Marvel based movie.

    I agree with the Hollywood ending. I found it difficult to suspend my disbelief and accept a seemingly paradoxical ending that also went contrary to the "rules" established by the movie. Overall though, I enjoyed Edge of Tomorrow.
