30 Day Movie Challenge – Day 3

Day 3 – Β A Favourite Action/Adventure Movie

You guys may know that I love superhero films, they’re so much fun, and I love getting caught up in all the fight scenes and CGI going on! But, my choice for today’s prompt is not a superhero one!

Edge of TomorrowΒ (a.k.a. Live Die Repeat)

I loooooove this movie. I hadn’t really heard much about it, it kind of went under most people’s radar, which is hilarious as this movie is amazing and there’s so many big names in it.

The film’s story was adapted from a Japanese novel called “All You Need is Kill”. Basically, in 2015 aliens (called Mimics) arrived on Earth via a meteorite and start attacking. The film is set in 2020, where the Mimics have spread over most of Europe and are killing everyone in their way. Tom Cruise plays William Cage, he’s in public relations, convincing people to join the fight, but not having any combat experience himself. Β His superior orders him to be there for a landing operation against the aliens, meant to turn the tide and end the war. He initially declines, but they send him off anyway. During the operations, Cage is killed, but wakes up the day before the battle. From here, he gets caught in a time loop, eventually teaming up with Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt) to find a way to defeat the aliens. Rita is a seasoned soldier, very well-respected and feared, nicknamed the “Full Metal Bitch”.

That’s a lot to take in yes. When I first watched this movie, I didn’t even know the plotline. Rory mentioned he wanted to watch it, and I said sure why not. This movie was incredible. The plot, writing, storyline, dialogue, humour and acting made this film such a thrilling and action packed watch. I’ve since heard they’re doing a sequel, and I’m not so sure about that. But then again, I doubted the first one, and it blew my mind.

Have you guys seen Edge of Tomorrow?

What’s your favourite action/adventure movie?

  1. Edge of Tomorrow was one of the finest Tom Cruise movie. My favourite action movie is Wonder Woman.

    1. It’s such a great movie! As is Wonder Woman. I was definitely considering it for this post πŸ™‚

  2. I loved this movie as well, it was pretty awesome.
    I watched Transformers 5 last week Saturday, and it was pretty awesome! I think it’ll take the spot for my favourite action movie for now.

    1. I haven’t seen the latest Transformers film, but from the trailer it definitely seems action packed πŸ™‚

      1. It is!
        You really should see the movie.
        You’ll thoroughly enjoy it, I know I did.

      1. It is! Have you watched John Wick? It certainly a good action movie too!

        1. I’ve been in the room as someone else was watching it, but never paid full attention πŸ˜‚
          I definitely should watch it properly though, it seemed really good!

          1. It does! I really like the latest one. Totally worth it!

  4. Great minds do think alike. Did you see that I committed to watch one movie a day for the whole month?

    1. I did see that! I didn’t think I would have time to watch a movie a day on top of everything else and work though. So I opted for this instead, where I talk about movies πŸ˜€

      1. Yes, watch a movie a day would be a big challenge for you, with a full time job

  5. I love that movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Its so good!!!!!!!

  6. I LOVE this movie! I love William Cage, I love the cinematography, I love the plot, I love everything about it. One of Tom Cruise’s finer roles.

    1. Haha, I remember that Tom Cruise is your favourite actor from your 15 Films Tag! I agree that this is one of his finest roles πŸ˜€

  7. I loved Edge of tomorrow. I felt like it was real life gaming series, where we needed to do a certain thing or else we die and then start all over again. Loved it!

    1. That’s a good way of putting it.
      Thanks for reading πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
