August 13, Format: Blu-rayVerified Purchase I bought this on a whim because I like sci-fi and Bruce Willis and it was comparatively cheap. I hesitated for a moment because it's written and directed by Rian Johnson I've yet to see something of his that I like, and don't get me started on The Last Jedi. Regardless, I took the plunge, how bad could it be?
Looper () - Rotten Tomatoes
Looper was written and directed by Rian Johnson. After Johnson released The Brothers Bloom in , he re-teamed with producer Ram Bergman , who produced Johnson's previous two films, with the goal of starting production of Looper in Even though it's a time-travel movie, the pleasure of it doesn't come from the mass of time travel. It's not a film like Primer , for instance, where the big part of the enjoyment is kind of working out all the intricacies of it. For Looper, I very much wanted it to be a more character-based movie that is more about how these characters dealt with the situation time travel has brought about. So the biggest challenge was figuring out how to not spend the whole movie explaining the rules and figure out how to put it out there in a way that made sense on some intuitive level for the audience; then get past it and deal with the real meat of the story.
