Edge of Tomorrow

T and I saw it today, and we both really liked it. Not a perfect movie by any means, but in most respects, it was better than I expected it to be. From the trailer, I had thought it would be a dark, brooding, by-the-numbers action sci-fi, but the tone was much lighter. It replicates the experience of playing a video game better than any other movie I've seen -- and I mean that in a good way. And there were some fun trope subversions that we enjoyed a lot.
