Watched Looper last night and thought that… it was all right. Just all right. A B-movie disguised as something more. A bit too self-conscious at being hyper-real, though the acting for the most part was convincing – apart from Bruce Willis. Annoyed that the film was described as “thought provoking”, as I didn’t think there were all that many thoughts to be provoked. I think part of the problem with time-travel movies is that Bill & Ted pretty much had the last word. Anyway, just couldn’t help but be left with the irony that I wasn’t getting those two hours back…

Bill and Ted = yes!, but maybe also Time Bandits, Twelve Monkeys and the first Back to the Future. That said, have yet to see Looper–maybe it will provoke a thought as compelling as “Be Excellent to Each Other.”
