Arthouse Legends Podcast

Welcome to Arthouse Legends Podcast - Where High Art and Geek Culture Collide! The goal of this podcast is to take a look at critically acclaimed and well-received films and consider if these films truly deserve their revered status in the cultural zeitguest. Using our combined film knowledge, geeky obsessions and general fart jokes, we take a bite out of much-beloved films, sometimes in love, other times in scorn, but never out-of-bounds.

By 2014, Tom Cruise was in a precarious situation in his career as he was rebounding from a troubled personal and professional crisis. Trying to keep the momentum of a couple of Box Office successes, he chose to headline a science fiction action film directed by Doug Liman called Edge of Tomorrow co-starring Emily Blunt about a cowardly officer forced to relive the day he died during an assault against alien invaders.

Despite critical acclaim and high praise of audiences who saw it, the film tanked at the box office. It was only when the film came out on home video and streaming that the film received acceptance. But did the film deserve the reevaluation or were audiences right to ignore it in theaters? MovieDude Eric, Chris Tondevold and special guest Beef of Legends Podcast strap in to find out.
