Join me and Drew of Trek.fm as we relive the same day over and over with Tom Cruise in this heartwarming remake of Groundhog Day. We compare it to The Americanization of Emily, Looper, District 9, Gamer, an actual video game, real life, zombie movies, and other Tom Cruise films.
We marvel at the technology both in universe and used to make the film, Tom Cruise’s weird flat streak of perfectly good movies, Emily Blunt’s yoga/hip-hop exercises, and the idea of mixing US and UK troops in the same unit. We like the movie and eventually figure out what’s happening and have a great deal of fun taking it on its own terms and trying to come up with better titles.
We are watching the Blu-ray version. Start the film after the Warner Brothers logo stops moving on the countdown.
