Alex Hooper PRESSES RESET on Edge of Tomorrow episode 216 GTSC podcast

1h 18m | Dec 31, 2023

The GREATEST action hero in the last 25 years is without question, Tom Cruise, had a rare underperforming film with Edge of Tomorrow. It underperformed so much in North America, they changed the title to Live, Die, Repeat which was the title of the Manga comic book/graphic novel/whatever you nerds call it. Alex Hooper loves Tom Cruise films as well as Emily Blunt (and who doesn't?) but he doesn't love the lack of pretext and disjointed plot.

Cruise superfan and Mission Impossible lover, Kevin Gootee, LOVED this film when it came out. Does it stand the test of time unlike his marriage to Katie Holmes, Mimi Rodgers, and Nicole Kidman? Faithful back massager Kevin Israel straps on a mech suit and gets ready for some grab ass good times. The guys discuss where Emily Blunt ranks on the list of female ass kickers/action heroes. And of course, an abundance of Tom Cruise jokes flow. Lastly, the trio lament if Catherine Zeta Jones arching through laser beams was an acceptable excuse for Michael Douglas to get HPV in the throat.
