edit: bobby hill? i can honestly say i've only seen 3-5 episodes of king of the hill, so i cant comment. but bobby (or the indian dude plowing gribbles wife) certainly rose to the top of that cast for me
Bobby is not central to this episode, but this episode is one of my favorites.

Has to be one of the most inspirational and one of the greatest promos for a sporting event ever.

Also putting it her because I love the song. Public enemy- harder than you think.

I saw Django in theater yesterday and loved it. Now I'm watching a screener version that has pretty good quality.

The scene where:

Spoil:
Django finds the first Brittle brother, and flashes back to his wife being whipped, and them running away... Total chills. "I like the way you die boy."

Just watched it and loved it except for the ending. Unplausable character move for multiple reasons IMO, plus really dumb unless you assume the future wasn't already set in motion. Still a dumb choice to me either way. He saw what the kid could do firsthand...

Oh well, it was a fun ride and far less complicated/messy/confusing than inception.

The makeup artist deserves an Oscar. I honestly had to look up if that was Gordon-levitt or maybe his brother I never heard of after. Could not tell that was makeup at all.

He had also seen (from his own life):

Spoil:
the influence that a mother has on a man. We hear him tell the callgirl that he can't even remember his mom's face, in a way that makes us think that it is important to how he became a Looper/criminal/addict in the first place. Then Young Joe learns of how Old Joe is "saved" by his wife, who is portrayed as a motherly figure. I think that his character's shame and regret about selling out his friend for his own selfishness also played a major role in his decision.

So while I agree that it might not have been the most practical solution, it was something that I could understand the character doing based on what we knew about him, his past, and even his future.


Just my two cents.

Throwing my 2 cents in, I thought it was a reasonable resolution by the character at the end of Looper as well.

Django was incredible.

Also saw The Book of Mormon this weekend. Amazing and hysterical musical.

Just my two cents.
I realize the ending was meant to sorta 'stun' the audience...

Spoil:


but to me the movie did not lead me to have any reason to doubt the future's timeline was not set. Had they started dropping clues that the future was completely a random outcome regardless of what happened historically, then I would have been fine with it outside the ultimate selfless act by a selfish person. Instead they dismissed the time logic big issues and just dealt with his memories fading or becoming more vivid as they happened to his younger self and the fact you could instantly effect someone traveling back in time by hacking off fingers, writing on your skin, etc...

If they wove in a little more hints at things being different in old Joe's timeline from the young Joe's then that leaves the future undetermined clearly to the viewer and makes that final scene much more optimistic to me. I watched it and immediately thought "well, that's great you saved a kid to only kill thousands more later". I viewed it as the chance to kill a Hitler as a kid and he passed out of some twisted sense of chivalry when up to that point he was purely self serving, even to the point of telling himself to F off and go die old man. Stark and sudden change all for a 'chance' that he might understand timeline logic better than we've been led to believe.

The only other thing that sorta bugged me was why the loopers had to kill themselves - why not just have looper A kill looper B and avoid any chance they show mercy to their older selves? The gold payment could come in a different manner as just a bag that shows up instead of a person and you know your loop was just closed elsewhere by another looper.

All that said, I still loved the movie and all, just a quirky character move as the final twist that required a bit too much of a leap for me.



*edit

After going to read other reviews and questions about the ending I found this which resolves the major issue completely.

Spoil:
I just read that the rainmaker saw his mother killed by a looper, somehow I missed this fact in the movie (I'll blame the puppy chewing on my arm) so that opens up the future to be completely different as I pointed out above as a flaw. All sits right now in my mind." GREAT MOVIE ENDING! LOL.

Agreed with your spoiler, love that line.

DiCaprio, Waltz & Foxx were amazing.

I think Django is my #1. Looper and Dark Knight Rises are near the top.

HM to 21 Jump Street

Still need to see Argo, Silver Linings Playbook and the Hobbit, though.

I read it. It doesn't have too much but it has some interesting stories. I can picture Chico telling them and laughing which makes it better.

I read it a few years back. I enjoyed the book. It's not the most amazing piece of literature of all time or anything, but its an enjoyable read and totally worth it for that price.
