Edge of Tomorrow / Man from UNCLE / Turn Left Turn Right

Dir: Doug Liman
Starring: Tom Cruze
Comment: Surprisingly so good! As you might see for my other posts, NB has been getting into Tom Cruise lately. Hold on, hold on! He's a terrible actor but, as I've come to realize, he's the American Jacky Chan, so stop taking him seriously and enjoy the cheese. Having said that, Live Die Repeat is actually very sharp, and combines a clever plot with solid action sequences. Enjoy it.
Rating: Top Work

Dir: Guy Ritchie
Starring: Henry Cavill
Comment: So bad. It's like a 2-hour long trailer. People keep acting cool, but if they've got no cache, it's hard to give them credit. Style over substance.
Rating: Poop

Dir: Jonnie To
Starring: Takeshi Kaneshiro (and his near-perfect hair), Gigi Leung
Comment: A fun love story set in Taiwan. It predicates on the idea of being 'meant for each other,' which the film really labors over for a while in terms of showing how terribly compatible they are. Still, it's a sweet movie, and you can watch on YouTube. Yarp!
Rating: Good
