For the first time in a long time, I decided to visit the cinema and saw Rian Johnson's "Looper". My verdict: I liked it. In fact, I think it might just end up being this decade's "why don't they make sci-fi like this?" movie a la "Gattaca", "Minority Report", etc. (Well, okay, "Moon" was probably that film, but "Looper" has more of a chance of being seen.)

 

I can see that some won't like the tonal shift that comes in the middle of the film, which does lend some credence to the "two separate films" criticism, but it didn't bother me.

Looper was nonsensical (as all time travel* movies are), but enjoyable.

 

* A colleague of mine, X (not his real name), studies time travel for a

(modest) living. He once got an email from somebody who said he

was from the 25th century and had time-traveled back to ours. He

was having trouble getting back. He said the textbooks of the future

said that if you were stuck in your time travels around the year 2000,

you should contact Prof. X, and he'd help you get back.

That's hilarious.

When Leonard and Sheldon signed their Roommate Agreement, it had a clause that if either of the invented time travel, the first trip they would take would be to their apartment, 5 seconds after signing the agreement.
