We get our first exposure to a Mimic in action, talk about the physics of Rita's "sword" and theorize about the mass and fighting capabilities of a Mimic. A nice discussion of the fx in Edge of Tomorrow, including the Tentacle Algorithm: https://www.fxguide.com/fxfeatured/live-die-repeat-the-effects/ Some video showing the algorithm at work in the animatic stage: https://youtu.be/iiKeTPL6HPk?t=79

Minute 023
Minute 23 opens on concerns for Rita’s safety and ends on concerns for Cage’s Safety Cage reunites with J-squad. We miss a great opportunity to make a “The Thing” analogy and instead make a vague call-back to “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” We discuss the ham-fisted Safety metaphor in detail. We make more than one Alien/Aliens reference Join our listener's group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/EdgeOfTomorrowMinute Check out the other Movies By Minutes podcasts listed here: https://moviesbyminutes.com/

Find his games here  Find his Sword and Sorcery magazine here  Find his Rockford Files podcast here and here if you feel like patronizing In this episode, we discuss accelerating the timeline as a storytelling method, the idea that Cage’s memory is his superpower, our personal chances at surviving a time loop. Once again we talk about Aliens, but Eppy does a good job of linking the lineage of Aliens to video games to Edge of Tomorrow.  And somehow we wrap It’s a Wonderful Life into it as well. We discuss some ideas for including time looping into Role Playing Games including one that was written by Eppy called Time and Temp and an un-named project in the works from his wife, also a successful indie game designer, Emily Care Boss

We’re happy to welcome back our returning guest Epidiah Ravachol  Game designer (Tabletop) , former midwesterner, podcaster and publisher. Find his games here  Find his Sword and Sorcery magazine here  Find his Rockford Files podcast here and here if you feel like patronizing  We talk about the Fiery Crucible’s infamy, how to have fun when writing the same scene over and over again and Rashomon you way through it by changing the focus from loop to loop. We talk about memory again and the diminishing returns of subtlety and the Dragon’s Lair/Space Ace style decision making. Finally we tackle Deja vu: Do you believe?  Are there scientific explanations? Metaphysical explanations? How can you use it in fiction?  How does Edge of Tomorrow take advantage of it? Unreliable memories? False Memories? Somehow we avoid talking about Aliens this time
25:23 09/08/2021
Minute 028
Minute 28 begins with Sgt Farrell asking a series of semi-rhetorical questions and ends with Sgt. Farrell reassuring us that it’s ok to be…something.   We discuss the heavy-handed foreshadowing of the early loops in a time-looping movie, how sound mixing can help change the focus of a scene we've seen before, some rules of thumb for prosciutto ordering, and the basics of Jacket construction.   Come join in the fun in our listener's group here   Check out the rest of the Movies By Minutes podcasts here

Minute 029
Minute 29 begins with Farrell talking about Courage and ends with a trip to the beach. In this episode we theorize about Tom’s theoretical rocky relationship with accents, we explore the liminal space between Deja Vu and Memory and look at why the “literal definition of insanity" is not doing the same thing and expecting different results.  At least not when you’re caught in a time loop.
