(Review) 'Edge Of Tomorrow' - Reliving A The Same Day Has Never
'Edge Of Tomorrow' starring Tom Cruise, is a sci-fi thriller that takes place in the near future. When the film opens, we find out that an alien race known as Mimics have invaded the Earth, wiping out millions. So far, they are unbeatable.

Cruise plays Major William Cage, a slick public relations officer in the U. S. army, a post he took up after his advertising company went belly up. An alien invasion could do that.

He's never seen a day of combat. His job is to put a 'good spin' on our war with the space invaders and get people to join the military and fight. Because he's done such...

Few were closer to Jacqueline Kennedy than her Secret Service Agent Clint Hill. For four years, in the White House and later in New York City, the straight-laced agent from Washburn, North Dakota, was her security detail – and her confidant. Hill accompanied President John F.
