He dies. The entire span of the film is 2 days.

Hell, the first time he dies, his skull is ripped open and he melts to death.

As to remake, it wasn't? It was some book that Viz media bought, then it went through development hell. Like many cruise movies, they wanted Brad Pitt, but settled for Tom Cruise.

Brad Pitt is good at "funny dying". I think the movie could have been warmer with him in the role.

A thing that helped my mom deal with it was explaining it wasn't so much time travel as a time loop. Getting more alien blood on him at the end extended the loop to the start of the film.

If you had time to hang out for a few hours in Harrisburg, there are some sweet little shops and restaurants not far from the Capitol.  Midtown Scholar Bookstore/Cafe, and there's an interesting little market (like old time marketplace with stalls) Broad Street Market 1233 N 3rd St.  Harrisburg is laid out on a grid so it's fairly easy to navigate.  Nice places to stroll by the river.

I liked the movie. Probably my second favourite Cruise (after Top Gun)

Like all time travel stories, you can't think about it too hard (well, at all, really), because if you do the paradoxes will get you.

... If I were to break this rule, then my biggest issue would be that Major Cage (like Phil Connors) is learning but not ageing. I can't quite reconcile this.

I liked the movie, but also didn't.

It's got the usual too much CGI poo going on in the background typical to a Cruise film, but it's got some interesting mind benders.

For instance, The General was smart enough to outsmart the time travelers so they wouldn't shoot him, but was too stupid to handle the alien invasion.
He's also the catalyst. If Tom Cruise hadn't tried to blackmail the dumbass, everyone would have died.

Emily blunt had a throwaway line about Tom Cruise being queasy flying, but the version of her that knew that died horribly, and she didn't have the reset power.

Tom cruise absorbs a shitload of Alien blood, enough to kick him back to the start of the film. He is now a battle hardened soldier, who everyone thinks is a PR lackey. They end the movie with a stupid grin as he meets an Emily Blunt he's never met before. So, he comes off as a douche.

Since he absorbed ALL of the alien time travel blood, is he now an immortal resetting time traveler? Like does he keep a pistol in his jacket for social faux pas? If he has a bad interview with Wolf Blitzer, does he dome himself?

And what was with the weird mix of "It's happening in the future, 2020 to be exact, but a majority of the film acts like it's still 2014, and Wolf Blitzer's stupid ass is still around" ?

Edge of Tomorrow. I liked it, and also didn't like it. They do the stupid over explainy poo every Tom Cruise film does, but I liked everything else. (The training montage was dumb, and threatened to let the aliens win).

I've got thoughts about the movie, but I don't want to spoil it, so I'll make another thread.

One of my favorite treatments of this phenomenon was in Woody Allen's "Bananas."  Here's the link.  I have to go change my underwear so they can check it, while I'm working on my Swedish.  <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkYfmRwryQo" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkYfmRwryQo</a>
