Movie Madness: Looper

OMG just watched Looper last night.
I don't know, I feel like any movie with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in it is a good one, regardless of the storyline.
So I feel like I'm a bit biased.

Anyway, SPOILER-rific blog entry if you haven't watched the movie.

So basically, Looper is a time-travel movie starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis.
In a nutshell, Loopers are those who kill people from the future, because apparently disposing dead bodies are really hard in the future.
So they send the people who are supposed to be killed to the past and then the loopers take them out and dispose the bodies in the past instead.
Anyway, once they are no longer needed, the loopers will need to close out their loop.
In other words, they will have to kill future version of themselves,
once they have, they are basically retired.
In the future though, a guy called "Rainmaker" is closing out all of the loops that have been made.
Here's the kicker though, JGL (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is playing the young version of Bruce Willis.
And basically Bruce Willis comes back to the past to find past version of Rainmaker and kill him before he gets to be the Rainmaker.

Anyway, the reviews of the movie have been stellar so far, with critics noting it as the smartest time travel movie of all time, or best sci-fi movie in the year.
I personally think it was OK.
Not bad, just ok. Because I felt like, the reviews have been so amazingly good that it's really hard to stand up to the impossible expectation.
Kind of like Dark Knight Rises.

But yeah, JGL is in it, so go watch it now and be amazed at the prosthetic they use. 
To close out this post, another photo of JGL.

Isn't he dreamy?
