Happy faces this time!!!!!
Holy broken link, Bradman!
It's not broken, it just takes blip some time to process it.
Are you guys going to review the new Ti West film and the new non-porno Sasquatch film (Brought to us by the star of Hot to Trot, Sir Bobcat Goldthwait)? I'd love to hear your guys impressions on both of those movies.
Whoops, I probably should have watched the video first before I asked this question. If it's already addressed in the video then my bad, I'm a dumbass.
Wait...Alex Browski? Is that you?!?
"I'm gonna shoot Brian tomorrow", given the history of this website could mean so many things:
1) Someone is receiving a text a some point in time.
2) Brad wrote a new script and Brian somehow doesn't know he's in the movie yet.
3) Brian should consider mexican citizenship.
4) Brian should warn Irving... or not, whatever. :D
Looks like i am going to see Edge of Tommorow today. Oh and Augustus Waters dies in the fault of our stars good luck
I already know how the movie ends because I know how the book ends, but dude, don't be that guy...
Let's be fair here, it's a mainstream movie featuring cancer. Somebody's going to bite the dust.
What the fuck! You spoiled a movie I'm not going to watch based on a book I'm probably not going to read. What a dick.
Welp....that was dickish.
(not that it was a movie I was EVER gonna see, but still, principles dude).
Here's something I found out via TvTropes, which both does not surprise me yet astonishes me. This movie is a pragmatic adaptation of a Japanese light novel, "All You Need is Kill."
On the one hand, I'm not surprised that Hollywood is "MORE ADAPTATIONS." On the other, I'm shocked that Hollywood is adapting light novels which do not have a very good reputation.
And apparently, the author of the light novel stated that part of his inspiration was save scumming in a video game. Which makes me laugh and smile.
Do they sell translated light novels over to English yet? I know there's a Manga section but a lot of the stuff I'm really interested in, like the "Kiki's Delivery Service" series, and the novels that "Legends of Galactic Heroes" bases itself on, are less to Gaston's Taste <.<
They do indeed. I have a copy of Machine Gun Maid somewhere. Also worth noting, "All You Need is Kill" was adapted to a manga with art by the guy that did Deathnote.
I'm doing this thing where I'm seeing a movie every Tuesday and writing a review on it, mostly to bump up my writing skill. Yes, I started doing it because Brad and the guys inspired me. But don't worry, I won't plug myself on someone else's site.
I was reserving next Tuesday for The Grand Seduction, because it looks like total Canadian smalltown cuteness, which I love, but I think Brad and Brian just convinced me to see Edge of Tomorrow. Oh well, a smalltown Canadian indie movie will still look good and be cute on a TV, whereas a big action movie wouldn't as much.
It's neither, just checked the listings and they're showing Wolfcop in one of the big theatres here in Vancouver. Pure Saskatchewanian werewolf exploitation flick at its finest. Yeah, that's a thing.
Hells Yeah Wolfcop! I can't wait to see that.
With this and Oblivion, I'm definitely in agreement Tom Cruise should keep doing these original sci-fi movies. I'm not even a fan of his really, but he's had some good stuff the last few years.
"We're not gonna have nearly as much to say about this one"
*video is almost an hour long and eight minutes longer than the last one* Well...
This seems to be a Brad and Brian thing. Videos with that particular pairing usually seem to be at least 40 minutes long.
We're really good at going off on tangents.
Watch a Spoony movie review v-log. Those go on longer than the movie these days! (But he hates it when you mention that)
...and rarely ever discussing trailers either.
man conflict Vietnam is awesome, it's the only game where i can play the russian roulette scene from deer hunter
Ah Whiteout. You got caught in the "oh I like that comic book, maybe this movie will be half as good" trap too eh, Brian?
...at least Greg Rucka got paid when they bought the rights to his comic? that's something good that came out of it at least?
God I hope Queen and Country movie/mini series/whatever doesnt suck as badly when that happens since I loved Queen & Country a hell of a lot more than I did Whiteout the comic
Looks like Think Like A Man Also shares the weekend with Jersey Boys. With that I'm torn between my love for Christopher Walken and Clint Eastwood and my hatred for The Four Seasons.
I have to admit, Tom Cruise is an actor I absolute cannot stand (but not for his Scientology things or anything, just in terms of an actor) I find him intolerable to watch even in fantastic films like Eyes Wide Shut.
That said though, I still always really enjoy listening to Brad review his films because it's still so entertaining that even though I know this film is in no way for me, I can still appreciate what it does for someone else. That is the power of a pretty great reviewer.
Well, that's your problem right there, you're the only person in the world who thinks "Eyes Wide Shut" is a fantastic film.
I kid, everyone has an actor or film series they just don't get. I hate James Bond personally, with the exception of the Timothy Dalton ones, but only because I love Timothy Dalton.
I'm with ya Matt, I also can't stand Tom Cruise.
Though I will say this, after watching Edge of tomorrow I thought tom cruise was actually pretty good through most of it.
Even in good films, I can't help imagining how much better they would be without Cruise. I think it's because he's irritatingly smug looking and too short for tough guy rolls.
OMG Brad your blip page as this video on top of Million ways to Die in the West. So one is thumbs up and flicking off. That's just gold.
The Fault in Our Stars is too much, man. Too much, too much.
Don't try to fight it. You'll get brain bubbles, strokes, aneurysms. You'll just wither up and die.
Speaking of action movie run time, Transformers 4 is unfortunately going to be two and a half hours without the credits.
Are those thumbs up I spy? This must be a good film them.
Still waiting on the word from this guy: https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/474699582647980032/558VhX2r.jpeg
They are called PHONES. Phones are meant for talking. If you guys TALKED to each other instead of going back to Morse Fucking Code, you would KNOW what the other person was saying.
Yeah maybe that's why I called him to confirm it wise ass.
You should just text "on the morrow" instead tomorrow (as is the time) when talking about the movie "Edge of Tomorrow".
and there is no sequel, actualy.....................
Man this film sounds like it really is faithful to the novel and manga. Excited to see this finally.
Naw, it isn't, no.
For what it is, though, it's a good movie.
After watching the Edge of Tomorrow, I will say that while it is a good film, there're better films to see.
If you haven't seen Godzilla or X-men: DOFP, then go see one of those instead. They were much better.
But otherwise, Edge of Tomorrow was a good film, just not that great.
Brad the movie in question 31:08 is Vantage Point
Did you pause it right at that moment to leave this comment, because a mere seconds later Brian mentions the title, and they refer to it by its title for the rest of the video.
I always like it when you guys get a movie you enjoy after a streak of bad movies. I enjoy the bad movie reviews because they're enjoyable/funny to watch and good to take in for what not to write in a story/movie, but the good movies are just as important to know what makes these movies great.
Glad you guys really liked the movie. For myself, I am not the biggest fan of Tom Cruise as he can be rather annoying sometimes but I do like him in some movies and I thought that this was going to be one of those that kind of make me get annoyed at him. If I catch it sometimes soon, I'll probably have a better opinion. Although I do have a soft spot for Bill Paxton.
And now I'm trying to think what would have been the best pair of you guys to watch The Fault in Out Stars.... No clue really
The Anne Frank is a great place to have sex, there's so many places to hide.
Can you tell I let the video auto play to the next review?
Glad you guys enjoyed the movie, I did too. Was a little worried because I think pretty highly of the book(the actual book, not the graphic novel which came after), and how the movie might screw it up. Well I can honestly say that the movie only maintained a grazing similarity to the book, but created a clear enough vision to stand strongly on it's own. So I was able to enjoy it.
For the Cruise hates( which I am not one), this movie really is a must see. Where else are they going to get the opportunity to see their most loathed actor graphically killed in so many ways? Not even in the most savage imagination. So really seeing this movie might be therapeutic for them.
To answer your question about how many times Cruise died, in the book it was 160, but take that with a grain of salt considering how the movie followed the book. For comparison Rita was in the loop for 211 times, the movie indicated 300.
Personally, I think Edge of Tomorrow works better as a standalone film, then as an adaptation. I've read both the novel and the manga, so I thought certain plot points were going to happen in the film, especially near the end. I saw it with that mindset and got a bit mad, which I really shouldn't have since it's otherwise a good film. But that ending...
I did laugh quite a bit at a lot of Tom Cruise's death scenes though.
I'm glad you guys enjoyed the film so much. :)
I agree about the ending. For a brief moment I thought that they might be brave enough to go through with it, and would have taken the movie to a whole new level. There is a line Rita had in the movie that was unfortunately never referenced again when I thought " Dear god they're actually going to go through with this". But then they copped out and went with a very western style Hollywood ending. It was the almost painfully obvious that it was the safe choice for a studio that was unsure of how a new IP might be received. I guess they thought that they had taken one too many chances already with the movie and decided to wrap it up in a safe sanitized way. But the fact that one line was in there makes me wonder if there is going to be an alternate ending when the DVD comes out. Either way I'm ok with it, but my, what the original book ending could have done for this movie.
According to wikipedia (so it's not a very credible source), the ending has always been a problem for the script. It's had several writers go through it, and the original script's third act was considered "too weak" back in 2009. The script was rewritten six months before filming started in 2012, with two-thirds of the original script thrown out (I'm assuming the first two-thirds, so there's little to nothing of the original script left) and it still didn't have a "satisfactory" ending eight weeks before filming started. Presumably, they wrote an ending that they thought would please the general audience and to satisfy the deadlines.
Really puts it in perspective, doesn't it?
I am just at the part where you are talking about a game where you have to die and such a game does exist. Baroque for the ps2 required you to die to advance the plot.
oh shit detox i still have that on dvd, hired out from my local video store years ago and the store burnt down, end of the story is i ended up with a pretty forgettable stallone film on dvd,
the game yall were playing was Battlefield vietnam, which is fucking awesome.
Conflict vietnam is a third person tactical shooter.
And yes, helicopters were a bitch.
Though you'd like the older "shellshock nam 67" which might as well be the first exploitation video game.
I second the "Shellshock: Nam '67" recommendation.
However, avoid "Shellshock 2: Blood Trails" at all costs.
oh yeah, fuck blood trails. shouldnt even share the title.
the movie is rather sad, once you realize that by the end of the movie, he still has YET to make it passed that day.
i don't know, i'd totally be down for a sequel. i want to know what this guy is going to be doing with his life now, that the war is over. and he still has that superpower of resetting the day at death...
the movie is by far the best movie i've seen since captain america 2. i highly recommend it!
I said this on Twitter as well, but the situation of being physically and mentally exhausted due to reliving the same day over and over, trying and failing to save someone and watching that person die hundreds of times, sounds extremely similar to the anime and visual novel game "Stein;s Gate."
I know that anime isn't your go-to thing to watch, but I highly recommend it.
Hey Brad, out of curiosity, what's your favorite Tom Cruise movie? And how would this film, Edge of Tomorrow, rank in your favorites of Cruise?
Risky Business, Collateral, Magnolia, Minority Report, Vanilla Sky, Eyes Wide Shut, The Color of Money, just to name a few. The Mission Impossible movies are a hell of a lot of fun too.
Emily Blunt was so hot in this; dirty and sweaty in battle armor, wielding a Buster sword. I came this close to committing a lewd act in the theater.
Seems like that would have been a good recruiting tactic for Vietnam... For people who work retail and have to listen to that shitty soft rock and "adult contemporary" that's played over the radio in all those places, go up to them and say: "Enlist in the army and go to Vietnam, where the ambient music is actually good!"
Also, the Hendrix-powered helicopter needs to be a thing...
I think the game you were thinking of was Battlefield: Vietnam from 2004
So I finally got around to seeing this today as a matinee. I was shocked, this was a REALLY good movie. The best I've seen since Captain America. Seriously, it was REALLY REALLY good. And funny as hell.
It absolutely reminded me of Dark Souls, actually. Heck, the tagline is similar. "Live. Die. Repeat." is a shade of "Prepare to Die".
