Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt headline the sci-fi epic from director Doug Liman, Edge of Tomorrow, fascinating and thrilling the HNR crew in the process. Well, except Dave who did not get to see it and Santos who was not satisfied with the ending in the slightest. Live. Die. Repeat.
