Hmm not sure I agree, but ok.

 

Not every film has to be a mind blowing, life changing event.  Looper to me was very original.  The basic plot we have seen before, but this grew into something different than Terminator (which imho was really just an action filmed dressed up like Sci Fi). 

I know you guys are critics, but sometimes its okay just to like a film because it makes you think.

I saw Looper last week at a second run cheap theater.  Thought it was fantastic!  Just don't think too much on the time travel aspect and how what happens effects the future, etc.  Like most that deal with time travel, it'll just make your brain hurt and potentially ruin a fun film going experience.

I'm disappointed to see Cosmopolis coming out on DVD already.  I didn't realize it had come out in theaters yet. I really like David Cronenberg's style of filmmaking and remembered looking forward to this movie when I first saw a trailer for it.  Don't really have high hopes for it now that I see it's coming to DVD so quickly.  Maybe I'll be surprised though.

 Saw Looper the other day and was highly impressed. I do find the fact that it is a sci-fi movie that isn't linked to a current property refreshing. Just like you I liked the fact that they didn't try to beautify the movie or technically explain time travel or other plot points and instead stuck with just telling a good story.

  1.  I liked Looper and totally don't think any incest was involved in the filming of this movie.

I have Looper as one of my top 5 films of the year. I thought it was very clever even if the plot isn't as original as people suppose. I so tire of that call, "original", I think just about everything nowadays has a derivative to some degree. I hate when that's used in a contumelious manner in what otherwise is a fine piece of work, but hey that's me.

 Looper was what it was supposed to be...good fun at the movies.  I didn't expect it to be earth shattering, but enjoyed it without feeling the need to compare it to past time travel movies.

 BTW, can someone give Looper a nod for doing practical make up to make Levitt look like Willis?  I thought that was rather cool myself.
