MERRY CRUISEMAS!

Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow (2014) | Warner Bros.

 

A very Merry Cruisemas, from our home to yours! For our 3rd annual celebration, we sit down with bosom buddy, film critic, and podcast extraordinaire Blake Howard to discuss Doug Liman’s 2014 film, Edge of Tomorrow.

We get into: time loops, Emily Blunt’s triceps, Cruise’s determined pathos, Liman’s blockbuster craftmanship, McQuarrie’s calibrations, repetition and rewatchability, three-beers-in movies, and more.
