I dig these little indie films in the summer. They are bright spot of film-making in the sea of Hollywood’s, in-your-face block-buster season. It’s good to not always be smashed in the face with explosions, or 80 % CGI something or other for a change. Good to have other options, that’s all I’m saying. And…
Edge of Tomorrow is probably the film that will finally help people forget how crazy Tom Cruise is and get them to go see his movies again. Ironically, (or not) Tom Cruise isn’t really the main reason why this movie is so good. We can thank the source material, a manga called “All You Need…

Bad Words is a surprisingly good little film. It’s chock full of off-color humor, and I do mean off-color. Ok, filthy. The language is colorful like an acid rainbow.
I have decided that Wes Anderson is now on my list of favorite directors. I liken him to the Coen Brothers; even their bad films are better than most people’s good ones, though there’s nothing bad about this one.
It may not be non-stop awesome, but it’s non-stop popcorn fun.
