Nick and I enjoyed one of the best things about a holiday weekend: a Monday matinee. We (and half of St. John's, I think) went to the mall for the movies. Our choice was Looper, which has been on our list since we first saw a trailer for the sci-fi/crime/thriller.
We liked it. I won't give much away - we benefited from not knowing much about the plot beyond the starting point, and that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had prosthetics to look more like Bruce Willis, who plays his older self - and I quite liked the plot twists. A few involve Emily Blunt, playing a woman trying to run a small farm while raising her son.
One thing I quite liked: a plot pot that is mentioned in the early minutes turns out to be absolutely critical, and nothing is made of it for about (I'm guessing) an hour and a half. It also turns the movie on its head, which is impressive, since the audience is already being given food for thought on things like time travel, fate, destiny, paradox, parenting ... and organized crime in the decades to come.
