Re: Looper - Grade, Review, Discuss, ect.
No that was not what I said as an assertion.. the comments of padding being forced by the studio is a comment to be pointedly critical about how the film felt. Critics do this all the time.. sometimes in a critical review, even by professionals like Ebert, the line between fact and how a film felt is blurred because critics will make the comment with equal force. I will apologize insomuch as I can but I will not agree with you at all that I am have, or will backtrack in any way. I was correct about how the idea started I still maintain that much of the rest of the story was padding. It might have had its own sense of heart and emotion, but it derived form a need to turn a short subject to a feature length film.
See, the problem is that you are using your cards to show me what cards you have, and if you can't see that this is viciously circular, then there is no point in continuing
