just saw this, fuckin cool film

right off the bat, i feel like it was maybe missing that extra something that makes a film great, like something to raise it above being a very good film. like maybe there was more to be explored, but whatever

the kid that played sid was prolly the best child actor i've ever seen. i thought it was cool that bruce willis was just not willing to talk at length about the time travel logic because it would be too confusing. the film looked cool, like visually, and i like how it doesn't really let up the pace at any point, it just follows through on one idea

and yeah when joe kills future joe it's showing how future joe got there. future joe's loop ends there at least in one eventuality, so that present joe can go forward into that position. i think the whole reason everyone kicked up a stink about future joe surviving is that it was creating a diverging timeline where anything could happen (like if he doesn't get looped, how does his past self even go to china? that's the only way they retire, through looping themselves, so he wouldn't get there to be sent back to the past if he hadn't died). i think prolly the divergences are linked to where they diverged from by the person who exists in both. like jumping between worlds as well as time.

but yeah that was good af

edit: FUCKIN KILLING CHILDREN MAN I LOVE THAT THEY WERE WILLING TO DO THAT. AND HOW COOL WAS OLD SID'S BEST FRIEND LOSING PARTS OF HIS BODY? AAAH FUCK WAT I SAID THIS IS A NEAR PERFECT FILM

I"m not an overly critical movie critic in that I look for flaws intentionally. I don't expect every movie to be perfect.

That being said, I loved this movie. Good balance of everything they wanted to do with it. JGL did the damned thing again. He's already become one of my favorite guys in this current generation and this movie only added to that sentiment. I kinda wished they added more twists and paradoxes and brain melters...but I don't think most people would enjoy it at that point.

I know of a lot of people who don't like GREAT movies just because they can't understand them. And it's like, even after I explain it, and they admit it's awesome, they still can't get the taste out their mouth of their first impression.

The kid was a really good actor and shorty pulled off an American accent flawlessly. Great flick.

yeah im highkey pounding at my keyboard rn getting heated, but its really nothing we can do about it razz So how was your day today?

When I said shorty I was referring to the female actor. I forget her name though.

Saw it yesterday, definitely liked it. I agree about it being "just right" in the sense of story pace and character relations.

I can't stop thinking about how perfectly grounded this is for a sci-fi film. <3

He took him to the docks so he can board a boat to leave. And that wasn't a dream, that actually happened.


That whole mini section of the movie got me thinking like," Wait, what just happened?" Took me a second to realize.

Not sure what part you're talking about. When it shows JGL killing Willis, that's the story of Willis.
