If you've seen the trailers for 'Looper,' then you already know Joseph Gordon-Levitt doesn't quit look like himself in the film. In this time traveling sci-fi actioner, he's supposed to be playing the past self of Bruce Willis' character, so certain physical adjustments had to be made to make that believable. However, he now looks so plastic that he resembles more of James Deen... and we're not talking about the iconic actor.

'Looper' Review

"Time travel has not yet been invented, but thirty years from now it will have been."
Our lives are tapestries woven together out of strands of choice. But who sews the strands together: us or a higher power?
Beneath the sci-fi gadgetry and special effects, this is what time travel movies are all about: the nature of free will. Consider the elegantly constructed sentence above. "Time travel has not yet been invented" -- suggesting an open future shaped by men -- "but thirty years from now it will have been" -- not "will be," suggesting a future already carved in stone by an unseen but omnipotent hand.
The complexity of that sentence, uttered several times throughout the brilliant new time travel movie 'Looper' reflects the complexity of the film, which is as thorough and as thrilling an exploration of the philosophical issues around time travel as has ever been put to screen. It's also an incredibly suspenseful sci-fi noir. In other words: it's pretty damn good.

Sure, we're all a little tepid at the prospect of a new season of 'Saturday Night Live' that lacks Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig, Abby Elliott, and potentially even Jason Sudeikis as well, but the show will always go on, no?  Seth MacFarlane has been announced to host the premiere of the long-running sketch comedy's thirty-eighth season, but who will join him on the stage?  And what other stars will fall from the sky to deliver a premium rush in the ensuing weeks?

'Premium Rush' Review

'Premium Rush.' With a title like that, it could be a line of Starbucks energy drinks, or a boutique line of snowboards, or a reality show about people trying to find the best possible deal on car insurance. Alas, 'Premium Rush' is instead a humdrum chase movie about a bike messenger pursued through Manhattan by a man who wants the envelope he's been hired to deliver.
Co-writer/director David Koepp assembles all the right elements for a knowingly small-scale thriller, and the early scenes crackle with mystery and humor. But at a certain point, he has to turn over his cards and reveal his story's secrets, and what you're left with after that point is a one-note film about a biker darting in and out traffic over and over again.

When actors step up to the roles that make them big-time, it falls to long-term fans to inform all those come-lately types that, yes, long before they had mega-million paydays and films with even bigger budgets, the stars you love seeing splashed across the screen 60-feet high in your multiplex were in -- and good in -- great films before that.
