Wham Bam Pow Ep. 56 - Edge of Tomorrow

Wham Bam Pow

This week, we chat about the Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise action flick Edge of Tomorrow, which (spoiler alert) WE LOVED! Plus, isn't it about time for Tom Cruise to be a movie star again? Rhea and Ricky pitch some movies with that goal in mind.

Make sure you check out some of Dan Ronan's work.

Next week we'll be watching Machete Kills, which is available now on Netflix Watch Instant.

Follow us on Twitter! Cameron is @cameronesposito, Rhea is @rheabutcher and Ricky is @rickycarmona. Discuss the show using the hashtag #WhamBamPow!

You guys are the best. I've

You guys are the best. I've been excited to see this movie since I heard your podcast over the summer, but having 4 small children to parent isn't conducive to watching movies unless their available on LeRedBox, sooo... JUST WATCHED IT OVER THE WEEKEND AND IT WAS GREAT! 5 stars for keeping me entertained (and awake!) after 10pm on a night after not having slept for >40 hours (thank you, night shift). In fact, I'm trying really hard not to type this entire comment in allcaps, as this tinyassed print can't do my excitement justice. Anyway, I had to come back and relisten to this ep hoping for some validation for the WTF'ness I felt over that whack ending. Validation found! Thanks again!

I think you misunderstood something about the final minute of the movie - it is actually internally consistent.

I don't want to spoil anything if someone sees this comment before seeing the movie or listening to the podcast so all I'll say is that rhe confrontation with the Omega happened a few hours earlier in the day than the confrontation with the Alpha.

As for whether it satisfied you emotionally, that's a different question ...
