    The timey-wimey stuff has been helped along by the writer from Primer, so it should be a total headfuck.

    Looking forward to it.
    Sadly this is no longer true, apparently. The schedules never lined up and so the time-travel stuff was covered by others :-(

    93% on Rotten Tomatoes, hurry up weekend...

    Going to see this on Friday.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    I thought this looked like fairly generic action movie fare, real middle of the road stuff when I saw the first trailer. They really didn't do a good job with it.

    Just the once. Honest. Going to squeeze in in towards the end of the Expo and the curry meet.

    Unless it really is THAT good :-)

    That's what I thought. Interesting premise ending up being used purely to string a load of setpieces together. Considering trailers are there to sell the film to an audience, it left me decidedly cold. I was hoping for a headfuck of Phillip K Dick proportions, but it looks like Die Hard and Terminator had a baby instead.

    What an odd criticism.

    The early trailers were designed to tell you very little about the plot, they had issues showing much more that is interesting without giving away a lot of what it's about.

    Just watched Brick again in anticipation for this. Fuck, I love that film. There's not one aspect in it that I dislike. It is pretty much the perfect film for me.

    Get bent.

    Yeah, Brick is definitely in my top 5. I watched The Brothers Bloom the other day, which I don't think even made it into cinemas. It's actually pretty good, but not up the the standard of Brick, so let's hope Looper is a proper return to form.

    God you're a dickhead. Film is getting rave reviews everywhere, the character work is one of the most highly praised things about it.

    Jesus, didn't realise this was getting such positive reviews.

    Have to try to convince the other half to go to this tomorrow instead of some other nonsense.

    Yeah, seems like it's headed towards instant classic status.

    I went to see Brick when it came out in my local arts centre, there were only two of us there. Walking out at the end we both nodded and smiled at each other.

    'It was good wasn't it?'
    'Yeah'

    Saw it again a few years later on SKY+, the Channel 4 airing and although I could pick out some flaws I'd glossed over, it was still very good, unusual and with some cool ideas.

    I'd been looking forward to Looper when I checked out what Rian Johnson was working on next (after Brothers Bloom), premise sounded cool and also Gordon-Levitt's involvement again was good, but later one the 1st trailer, and to some extent the second looked like a disappointing generic action film as mentioned above, but I can understand now if they didn't want to reveal too much. The critics are raving over it though, and it obviously seems to have more substance.

    Are you guys on meth, or something?!? It's being sold that way, so it sells.

    Thank you for that lesson in Marketing 101. At those earlier points, for the albeit minority who may want something more than that, it may have been a turn off.

    Rian Johnson has to be one of my favourite Directors. I've been following this film for a fair while. I fucking want it.

    He's got a Nolan-esque vibe about him. Also a Wachowski-like vibe, before they went downhill (if Cloud Atlas ends up being a masterpiece I'll take it back).

    Neither freedumb or the other man, 54 years old with hair down his back that you could plat, could have seen this coming when they woke up this morning."
