First, I’ve decided my husband needs a new name on the blog other than “the hubs,” so he’ll heretofore be known as Snoop Robby Rob. Ok, with that important piece of business out of the way, Snoop Robby Rob and I watched Looper this weekend. Have you seen Looper? Do you like Looper? It’s that movie where Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s face is kind of messed up looking but you realize it’s because he’s supposed to look like a young Bruce Willis who is, incidentally, very old looking.
Right. Here’s the thrust of it:
In Looper, time travel is invented 30 years in the future and, though immediately outlawed, is used by criminal organizations to send those they want killed into the past where they are killed by “loopers”, assassins paid with silver bars strapped to their targets. Joe, a looper, encounters himself when his older self is sent back in time to be killed.
Fair warning: mild spoiler alerts ahead where I rant about a movie that I actually do kind of like:
