#42Movies, Day 20: Emily Blunt’s Time Machine

She’s a brick house. As shown here:

Looper (2012)
Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

Let it all hang out after the trailers.



Here’s what you’re going to do. You’re going to do a double feature of these two amazing films, back to back. First watch Looper, in which Emily Blunt’s character has a smaller but still pivotal role; then watch Edge of Tomorrow, where she gets to play a motherfucking badass. Seriously: even though it’s William Cage’s story, Rita Vrataski is the hero. (Yes, hero. Not “heroine.” HERO. The myth leaves something to be desired—as does Shakespeare’s homage—but “Hero” is a woman’s name. DEAL WITH IT.)

And when you’re done with all that, feel free to deploy this animated GIF liberally on social media:
