    also I found it very strange when
    JGL decided "yep this kid's gotta die" and he stumbles on him drenched in blood

    that's the thing that makes him go "nope I'm not gonna kill this kid"

    I don't feel like seeing the blood of your old buddy spilled all over his killer is usually a calming factor, even if it's on a kid


    I'm fairly certain that if I ever had a child...

    That would be my kid.

    well it could have had other stuff in the place of the farm

    I'm not saying that the movie should've ended the scene before the farm, that would have been a very confusing movie

    The movie went way the fuck off the rails once it shifted focus to the farm

    the tk stuff was kinda neat as a background piece of worldbuilding but i did not like it taking center stage as a plot element at all

    It went in an unexpected direction and I can understand why it's divisive but I thought it was fine.

    yeah I think the turn at the farm only hurts the imaginary film we were all expecting from previews

    but in context of the actual movie, it works rather splendidly and I'm really happy about it

    now gimme the DVD people I can devour the movie soundly

    i don't think it's fair to say that it's an imaginary movie that exists only in previews

    that "imaginary movie" is exactly what looper is up until he goes to the farm
    really the basic shape of the plot, the whole terminator-esque thing, is fine to me even if it's a little unoriginal

    my problems basically come down to

    -i wanted a movie about time travel and the implications of it, and while it was largely that there was a large chunk of it that gets taken up by telekinesis and the implications of THAT

    -the kid was a boring shitty character, because creepy genius-intelligence superpowered children have been done before and aren't all that interesting, and in a movie full of interesting characters it sucked to see the whole plot revolve around the only one that i didn't give a shit about

    well, if you put it that way,

    did you enjoy the rest of the film before the farm at least

    I did!

    And I even still sort of enjoyed the farm stuff, and thought the ending was good

    I just feel like there was a better movie to pull out of this concept than what was made

    I figure if they took out the TK, I'd still end up with the same film ending except maybe they have to find another way to show that
    this kid was the rainmaker
