Pete: Simply put this is a blend of Ground Hog Day, Saving Private Ryan, and Alien. Despite that, it was much better than I’d anticipated.

Simply put this is a blend of Ground Hog Day, Saving Private Ryan, and Alien. Despite that, it was much better than I’d anticipated. Cruise, Blunt, and Paxton were all brilliant. I’d recommend Great Raft Brewing’s Brewery’s All My Tomorrows Saison, just take one sip every time Major William Cage has to “reset”. The Quad-Tilt-rotors were the architectural highlight for me.

Brigette: Another very entertaining Tom Cruise film. I’m beginning to have a real appreciation for his dedication to his craft. It was important to him that his character have a bit of humor to him and I think this absolutely made the film. This film would appeal to a broad audience as there is something in it for everyone.
