At The Movies with The Daily Trash

October 10, 2012

Here is our latest installment in our completely unreliable series of one-minute movie reviews….

This week, The Daily Trash joined the happy throng at Crown Casino for “cheapskate Tuesday’s” viewing of Looper.

Looper is a science-fiction movie starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis who both play the role of “Joe,” a hired assassin. Thanks to to the advent of time-travel, old Joe (Bruce) meets his younger self (Joseph).  Young Joe is meant to kill old Joe, but things don’t go to plan. Old Joe escapes and so begins a complex game of cat and mouse. They both die in the end, but younger Joe’s love interest survives as does her young son who has special powers*.  The End.

FOUR STARS.

*Spoiler alert.

    Good, that’s another film I don’t have to see.

    I didn’t have to go and see Alien Prosthesis, or whatever it was, because I read the executive summary here.

    Well done. .. You are the only one who puts the *spoiler-alert in the correct spot as far as I`m concerned.

    It’s still a good movie though…! Worth seeing if you like sci-fi…

    It would be easier to travel forward than back, overcoming inertia should be feasible, but the dreaded paradox of loopey leaves many questions unanswered.

    We (the film going public) demand insights from sci-fi, such as, is the paradox overcome because its actually a parallel universe?

    If you kill yourself in the past you won’t be in the future FFS! That’s suicide …

    LOL TB

    The idea of going back before you were born is also a worry…

    egg, I used to be (still am) a big fan of sci-fi when i was a kid … but I like the scince based stuff (AC Clark, Heinlein, Asimov) based on real scientific theory … I also like fantasy – quite removed from sci-fi but often removed … one of my fave movies is “Star Trooper” fantasy/sci-fi … a very clever script … (that most folk I know just don’t “get”) …

    Parallel universes are different to a single timeline and killing a younger you on another timeline only changes the futur on that timeline …

    I’ve also discovered that most people really don’t understand the timeline concept anyway …

    “If you kill yourself in the past you won’t be in the future FFS! That’s suicide …”

    What part of “Young Joe is meant to kill old Joe” didn’t you understand…….? 🙄

    “Star Trooper”

    Is that the one where the hero says “do you want to live forever”?

    ‘old Joe (Bruce) meets his younger self (Joseph).’

    Paradox!

Go on say something, you'll feel better...
