Edge of Tomorrow - 9/10
I think I've mentioned it before in a review, but I say it again. I don't like Tom Cruise, he's a total sleazeball and not ment to be an action star in my opinion, no matter how hard he tries to make it happen. And that's kinda the strong point of this film, since the main character starts as a total sleazeball and gradually becomes more badass (and by gradually it probably takes him the equivalent of months).
By the way, this movie is basically Groundhog Day as a sci-fi action flick. And that's not ment to sound deprecatory, no it's super awesome. Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton and Noah Taylor are all great. The humor is dark, yet fitting, the twists are not too unexpected but still good and the story overall is probably as creative as it can be (I guess story credit goes mostly to the manga it is based on. Never read it though).
My only complaint would be that it was a bit too "america saves the day-ey", despite having some international soldiers during the last battle. Would it have hurt so much to let the hero be japanese like in the source material? Well what do I expect from an amercian film...
Hot Tub Time Machine - 7.5/10
Uhh another film about accidental time travel! This time not due to aliens, but a hot tub... which is also a time machine. A hot tub time machine! Despite the pretty simple name, this film is actually realy funny. Sure some gross humor here and there and not much highbrow material, but it did it's job and made me laugh... a lot. Hey and it has John Cusack in it. Craig Robinson stole the show though, he was hysterical.
I can't say much more about it, there is a part two coming later this year, the trailer looked promising.
Pineapple Express - 8/10
Aaaaaand another comedy. I don't know why I love stoner comedies so much, heck I never even came close to touching weed my whole life, but there is something about this crazy, facepalm-inducing, stoner humor I can't get enough of. The story is pretty simple, Seth Rogen is a stoner, he wittnesses a murder and flees to his dealer/best friend James Franco, who is also stoned 100% of the screen time. The murderer and his corrupt police officer accomplice now try to kill the two before they can tell anyone. And since those two are stoned all the time the plot takes longer than it has to, yet it's also so much more fun to watch.
