8) Looper (2012) - B+

I'm glad to see the Sci fi genre make a come back in movies this year, and I think maybe it was Looper who got the ball rolling. Yeah you have your superhero films, Marvel, DC, stuff like that, but what about films like the original Total Recall or 12 Monkeys which I have seen people compare this film to. I'm not sure the comparison is apt other than having Willis in both films but then again I haven't seen 12 Monkeys in a long time.

As for Looper, I liked it, even though I was almost taken out of the film when Willis finally came in and we saw the circle loop twice. I didn't really understand that entire segment, but things finally got better when we got to the Farm and saw the kid. That kid was creepy too, and it was a really great performance. Willis and Gordon-Levett were good too, but that kid might have been the best part of the film.
