Believe it or not, despite how many massive movies came and went this summer, movies in general did not do as well this summer as projected. That means, a lot of big movies did not make the money they needed to make, while a couple other movies no one expected came in and kicked butt.
To put the summer movies of 2014 in perspective, Screen Junkies hosted a panel of some of the finest in internet movie writing (though I was woefully neglected) to talk about some of the best and some of the worst movies that came out this past summer. You really can't argue with their logic (though you don't have to agree with the one person who liked the TMNT reboot. Best we will just leave that alone).
Much like the panel, I was shocked at how good Edge of Tomorrow was, but feel the need to expand on something they say. They all agree that Edge of Tomorrow was a surprisingly engaging and fun film, but that it had a super generic name. But someone should point out that the movie Edge of Tomorrow is based on a Manga book called All You Need Is Kill.
Now that, my friends, is a name that would have brought the movie the crowd it deserved. Okay, that is all. Just proving my worth for the next time they have one of these panels.
