On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews Edge of Tomorrow! Is it just another generic Tom Cruise flick, or is it something altogether different? Does it mark the beginning of a major comeback for Tom Cruise? Could it be this generation’s answer to The Matrix? Might it even be this summer’s best kept secret? Is it truly as smart as some reviews are letting on? Does a sci-fi actioner such as this truly have any mass appeal? Will gamers and hardcore genre fans relate to it more than the average movie goer?
We’ll also be reviewing 22 Jump Street! Is it as funny as the original? Is it just another tired retread in the vein of Ghostbusters 2 and Another 48 hours? Does it manage to avoid the curse that befalls just about every comedy sequel ever made? Do the Jump Street films offer Ice Cube the perfect chance to subvert the persona he’s cultivated throughout his rap career? Is he the perfect parody of the proverbial “Angry Black Boss”?
