    The Tomorrow War (Review)

    I had low hopes for this one from the trailer and it didn't disappoint. Dan Forester (Chris Pratt) and his crew of generic characters you have seen in all the other generic movies of the ilk go into the future to fight a losing war against man eating aliens. As movies go using usual tropes, adding nothing new to the genre at all, it's harmless fun with some good visuals, as long as you don't ask yourself Q's like they can develop time travel but can't make a shoulder fired weapon that does anything but piss off the aliens, and so forth. The obvious comparison movie is Edge Of Tomorrow and Colonel Muri Forester (Yvonne Strahovski) even looks like Emily Blunt in some scenes. They even managed to fit in blaming the arrival of the man eating aliens on global warming. B-/C+

    Global warming is caused by the terraforming activity of the advanced party of the alien invasion force. Everybody knows that.

    It wasn't bad, but you think war technology would have evolved...

    Curious on the make of the SBR stocks though

    Apparently didn't evolve at all, but they were able to build a time machine... Dumb movie, movie was dumb, but harmless fun if you could shut your brain off.

    Which can be said of much of what Hollywood produces.

    Of course. For me, only so far I can get in ignoring realism, physics, logic, etc where I just can't shut off brain and enjoy. For this genre, I gave it a B- with caveats listed. As a stand alone movie, I'd give it a C-/D+.

    Home sick as a dog with a summer cold. With my noggin muddled with cold meds, it killed 2 hours of time relatively peacefully. I'm not going to see it again.

    I watched it yesterday evening. I turned my brain off and I just watched it. I have been to Miami back in 2013 for a Caribbean Cruise and flew in a few days early to see some the sights. I saw the freedom tower destroyed by fighter planes when they incinerated Miami.

    Will Brink giving it a B - You are much more kind than me. It's like a bootleg version of Edge of Tomorrow. If they can invent time travel and come back to warn everyone why not help humanity build up defenses and capabilities before the kickoff?
