Despite time travel existing, time is still a linear thing. Time was going along, doing its time thing, JGL closed the loop and became Bruce Willis, and then when Bruce Willis came back, he made a different choice. The title is funny because time is totally not a loop in this movie.

First of all Bruce Willis closed the loop and got old and was sent back, which means that Bruce Willis, the one he killed would have closed his own loop and this will keep on going further back. There's no progression of time, it is a continuous loop.

1 closes his loop, grows old, killed by 2 ( his past self).2 closes the loop grows old is then killed by 3 (past version of 2 and 1). This continues. It makes sense within the film and the whole loop idea but its ****ed.

Hopefully that made sense.

I enjoyed The Grey, even if they portrayed the wolves as something just shy of supernatural. Neeson still kicks ass.

On time travel films, Safety Not Guaranteed might be my favourite film of 2012.

That's the closest you're going to get for film analysis from me for a while people So burned out these days.

edit: ^Really? I liked it, but it didn't strike any emotional chords with me really.

Well, I'm out. The Master seems like a movie I'm going to have to think while I watch, and I just can't do that right now.

Yeah, I mean I haven't seen a lot of 2012 films but it'll be in my top 5 by the end of the year I'd imagine.

Can it beat Lawrence of Arabia, The Tempest, and Dial M For Murder in 3D (I haven't figured that one out yet myself so don't ask haha)?


Also those who haven't seen The Master, just do it already. Find a way to watch it and do it. Please. We need to discuss this movie here already!

Yes because Raising Arizona is better than all of those and most other films ever.
