Sometimes something happens to me when I absolutely love a film. At some point during my viewing I'll tear up because I'm so happy with what I'm seeing. I don't know if that happens to anyone else and it may be unique to me, but it happened with Looper when I saw it at the cinema and again here with this re-watch. It reaches me somehow on an emotional level and brings tears to my eyes because I'm so damn…
Great action and great set pieces. What we've come to expect from the Mission Impossible franchise right? Both those things are here along with the predictable double, triple, and beyond crosses. Many loved this film. I've seen it called one of the best action films of all time. I won't argue whether or not the action is great. I'm sure it is. I liked the film. I've liked most of them. My issues are more about personal taste. Personally I…
I started to blame my finding Captain Marvel average on MCU fatigue and comic book film fatigue in general, but honestly I was just mostly bored by it. It introduces Brie Larson's character about as well as a mediocre coming soon wrestling promo. She looked really cool, but the story did very little for me.
The Ron Says: I could have done without it, but I'm sure most MCU fans will enjoy it more than I did.

Quentin Tarantino has had my attention since the very first time I saw Pulp Fiction. It was the first film I ever saw where one of the first words that came to mind was masterpiece! It was my first Tarantino, I've seen everything he's directed since and I've been impressed every damn time. In my opinion he simply doesn't make bad films.
So with everything I said…
Looper is easily the best film I've seen this year! I loved everything about it! I was in awe from start to finish. The directing, performances, and plot are all top notch. Pierce Gagnon basically steals the show as Cid with the best child performance I've seen since Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense. I teared up at one point because I was so happy with what I was seeing. I can't recommend this film highly enough and I think most people will love it.
