I know, I know: A Tom Cruise movie? I can hardly believe it myself, but Edge of Tomorrow is a truly enjoyable summer blockbuster. It’s not brilliant by any means, but it’s sly enough to work its Groundhog-Day-meets-Independence-Day premise into something worth your time. Cruise’s glowing self-regard has ruined almost a full generation’s worth of blockbusters, but Edge of Tomorrow solves that problem by making Cruise’s character a total asshole, and by putting the fabulous Emily Blunt in the kickass war-hero role. It’s a hell of a lot of fun. (See Movie Times: thestranger.com/film)
