Groundhog Day (1993) and Edge of Tomorrow (2014}

The two movies Elise Moore and David Fiore discuss in this episode epitomize the maxim, “If at first you don't succeed...”. In Groundhog Day, Bill Murray, at the splendid height of his original sarcastic comedic persona, is given apparently limitless chances to accept limitation and adjust his attitude, which is the amount he needs; while the curious Edge of Tomorrow examines the ways in which the structure of Groundhog Day (although nothing else about it) resembles a video game, and slaps a weirdly generic, Sirkean title on the results.
