NB Vs

Hopefully you’ve gotten a chance to go see the excellent movie Edge of Tomorrow over the weekend.  I took some time on Friday to go see the movie a second time, and I still love the film.  Now that the movie is out I wanted to go into a deep dive into how the source material All You Need is Kill compares to the Edge of Tomorrow.  This is going to be very spoiler heavy so don’t read on if you haven’t seen the film yet.
