Loopers

This got a 94% rating from rotten tomatoes who i do regard as reliable, with even the Village Voice giving it the thumbs up.

Shocking. Dreadful nonsense.

A standard run-of-the-mill moral dilemma, dragged out for 150 minutes or so.

utter nonsense

Pretty sure it's Looper, not Loopers. And compared to the other stuff out there, I didn't think it was so bad. Could've used a better ending and less inconsistencies, but still found it enjoyable.

btw, don't we already have a thread on this?

Yeah, the movie was entertaining, especially the not-quite-so-futuristic setting of the movie. Story didn't make too much sense at times, but everything else was interesting enough to keep me hooked.
Also, wasn't anybody else freaked out a bit by the appearence of Joseph-Gordon-Levitt in this movie?
Looks like he underwent plastic surgery or something

No it took me awhile to get used to it but I love how great his mannerisms and facial ticks mimicked Bruce, the make up and prosthetic were really realistic.
