Review: “Edge of Tomorrow”

Edge of TomorrowEdge of Tomorrow is a science fiction action movie about a man who is forced to fight in a war against alien invaders, called Mimics, against his will. Only the aliens have the power to reset the day by creating a time loop and correcting any mistakes they make in battle once the day resets. This renders them all but invincible until the hero, William Cage, steals this power by accident and learns to turn it against the enemy. Note that Edge of Tomorrow is also known as Live. Die. Repeat. Probably because Edge of Tomorrow is a stupid name for the movie.

So, what did I think about Edge of Tomorrow? Yeah, I’ve heard the jokes. Many of you scoffed at this movie because Tom Cruise starred in it. You laughed and said it might be worth it to see Cruise get killed a bunch of times but that was about as far as you would go. Then you either downloaded it illegally for free (no judgements) or didn’t see it at all. Because you thought it was going to suck. Well…

TRUTH BE TOLD Available for Digital Download Soon!

Truth Be Told

Your wait to see Truth Be Told will soon be over!

Truth Be Told will be available for digital download on 12/19/14 and we’ll even be able to preorder a DVD with extras! I don’t know everything about what’s to come, but I’m told it will include full interviews with the ex-Witnesses who appear in the film. You can see clips of the documentary at Gregorio Smith’s website and on SMITHKRAFT’s YouTube channel. I don’t know about you, but I’m there, man.

I’m told Huffington Post will be announcing this very soon, but I’m posting it today. There’s also going to be a mass screening with Reddit AMA after Christmas Day! I’m already thinking about watching it alongside other ex-Witnesses in chat forums, too.

For anyone who is unfamiliar with Truth Be Told, it’s a documentary by director Gregorio Smith about former Jehovah’s Witnesses. I interviewed Gregorio about the film here if you want to learn more.

So get your own copy and stick it next to The Prodigal Returns and see which one catches fire first!
