Episode 13: 'Edge of Tomorrow'

"Press 2 for Spanish."

It's lucky number thirteen, and the boys are back with a vengeance! Today Jon and Joel blather on about film #49008, 'Edge of Tomorrow', a silly, Tom-Cruisey, video-gamey kind of film. Basically it's 'Groundhog's Day' starring Master Chief; so lots of the same lines delivered by the same people, again and again. Will Emily Blunt doing the Sun Salutation over and over make up for it? And will Tom Cruise be able to save the day? Of course he will; that's not even a spoiler.

Meanwhile, Joel will talk cherubs, pixies, and rabbit ears, and condone the virtues of carrying a big sword. And Jon will say "monopoqolowuy", then actually break the podcast with his tangents. (Seriously, is he even making real sentences? Anyone?) A common fondness for 'Winnie the Pooh', and an unequivocal 'no' to unsolicited hand love are what you have to look forward to, in TaT Episode 13: 'Edge of Tomorrow'!
