The year was 1988. The summer was hot. The World was obsessed with television and movies, and a whole generation of E.T fans were ready for something new, something better, something with a small alien who would capture their hearts again.

When the trailers were released for Edge of Tomorrow I was a little disappointed with what I saw. The synopsis sounded to be … Continue reading Edge of Tomorrow (2014) Review
