Movie Mayhem – Edge of Tomorrow

There’s a small segment in the groundbreaking film Groundhog Day when beleaguered weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray), after who knows how many times living the same day over and over again, decides to try and end his cyclical torture by stealing the groundhog and driving off a cliff. When he still reawakens from this fiery suicide attempt, Phil spends the next few days killing himself in a variety of ways, hoping one will end his misery for good, only to turn to a new strategy when it becomes clear it won’t work. But what if killing yourself was the only way you could reset the clock? This question is the starting point for Tom Cruise’s new science fiction film, Edge of Tomorrow, and even though the idea isn’t the most original one out there, the execution of the story makes it feel as fresh as it did back in 1993.
