Looper, 2012

**Spoilers abound**

C and I watched Looper, after much anticipation and an agonizingly long wait, this weekend.  I’m not sure if I’ve had enough time to process it yet.  Look at this face, people:

looper sidThe movie was wonderful, and completely lived up to the hype.  So let’s start with the stuff I didn’t like:  First, Piper Perabo’s boobs were a total distraction and pointless in this movie.  Why do movie makers do that?  Second, I can’t believe my beloved Bruce Willis would actually ax a kid, and I’m in denial about that whole scene.  Third, time travel movies make my head hurt and I don’t understand why they could just chop off everything but the torso of that guy and not effect the future in anyway that just killing the poor bloke wouldn’t do.

All in all, an entertaining, well-done, moving, surprising, imaginative, and only a bit confusing film.

C?  Your thoughts?
