I remember watching Edge of Tomorrow aka Live Die Repeat and actually liking it. I mean, it’s hard for me to dislike any film that Tom Cruise is in, but this film was surprisingly good for a sci-fi thriller and it was underrated.
And although it didn’t start with this film, it was around this time that I noticed TC giving his lead female star/s the spotlight. Rebecca Ferguson took the carpet right out from under his feet in Rogue Nation and there was no complaining on his part. He’s handing over control to powerful female leads and I like it.
Anyway, this is the title reveal: Live Die Repeat and Repeat. What a mouthful! >.< Maybe they should have named it Repeat and Repeat?
“We have an amazing story! It’s incredible! Way better than the first film, and I obviously loved the first film. It will be called Live Die Repeat and Repeat. Tom [Cruise] is excited about it, and Emily Blunt is excited about it. The big question is just when we’ll do it. But it’s not an if, it’s a when,” Doug Liman
I don’t know about Blunt, but Cruise is currently in Paris shooting the 6th Mission: Impossible, then he’s going to take a break to do promotional tours for The Mummy beginning this month in Australia, then it’s back to more MI6 filming, then he’s going to have to take a break to do promotional tours for American Made aka the movie I can’t wait for, then it’s back to more MI6 filming. I am just assuming that this is how his schedule is going to look like until year end because this sequel is going to be a while in the making.
TC, dear, take a vacation. You’re only man, not machine.

We meet him late in life: a quiet man, a good father and husband, a fixture in his Brooklyn neighborhood, a landlord and barber with a terrifying scar across his face. As the book unfolds, moving seamlessly between Haiti in the 1960s and New York City today, we enter the lives of those around him, and learn that he has also kept a vital, dangerous secret. Edwidge Danticat’s brilliant exploration of the “dew breaker” – or torturer – is an unforgettable story of love, remorse, and hope; of personal and political rebellions: and of the compromises we make to move beyond the most intimate brushes with history. It firmly establishes her as one of America’s most essential writers.
Dew Breaker is a Creole nickname for torturer. It refers to a prison guard who tortures the captives in his charge.
Although The Dew Breaker is a collection of short stories – 9 to be precise – it can also read as a novel. I rather call it short stories. All 9 stories are interrelated to that time period in Haiti when the Tonton Macoutes, a group of volunteers who tortured and killed civilians under the regime of Jean-Claude Duvalier and Franςois.
Most of the stories were told from the view of Haitian immigrants living in America. Honestly, I thought the book started off well with The Book of the Dead (I call this book the Ancient Egyptian bible), but by the time I reached Night Talkers, I started skimming the rest. I couldn’t wait for the book to be finished.
I only chose this book because I want to give Caribbean stories a chance, but so far, they keep failing me. I also read it because I had to help a friend write a report based on this book.

Give your newer sisters and brothers-in-WordPress one piece of advice based on your experiences blogging. If you’re a new blogger, what’s one question you’d like to ask other bloggers?
Giving out advice like its dinner is not my thing, but I did a post call Blogging Tips for Beginners a while aback. The only thing I’ll add to it is to not follow blogs in a desperate bid to have them follow yours back when you’re not even remotely interested in their content. Do not like their content if you have not read it. It isn’t fair to like for the sake of liking.
What’s the most significant secret you’ve ever kept? Did the truth ever come out?
I don’t keep secrets. It just isn’t my thing. >.<
