Really enjoyed this movie. Great story. Great sound. Solid acting. My only gripe was the overall PQ. It had a very grainy feel with hazy blacks. So, not the most impressive movie from that stand point, IMO. Not a deal breaker though. This one is a must see.

Re: Looper - Blu-ray review

Thanks for the review Peter. My fiance and I watched the movie and we both loved it. As a matter of fact we have watched it several times and suggested it to all our friends.

Re: Looper - Blu-ray review

Watched it last night, I agree the video was not the best as it did seem kind of washed out however the audio on this is really deep and dynamic. I just did not like the language or the parts with the topless woman as its really just not my thing.

R for violence and yes, some skin. More skin is in the "bonus" deleted scenes than in the actual theatrical release. Funny how some T&A is considered more offensive then the fact that Bruce Willis kills a few children in the movie and we are OK with that...

Walmart here I come.. How's the LFE in it?

Audio I see was rated quite high
My brother was in the basement watching the movie and I was above him on the main floor in the kitchen and at times when the bass kicked in the floor rumbled and I could see the water in the vase on the kitchen table ripple; not an exaggeration, it was that powerful.

Re: Looper - Blu-ray review

Watched it the day before yesterday - thought it was pretty good. Joseph Gordon Levitt looks so weird because of the makeup though.

Ive wanted to see it but the "R" rating with a fair bit of skin is keeping me from getting it. Am I warranted in these thoughts?
Skin doesn't bother me but in respect to your position you should know that there is some gratuitous nudity front and center in a couple of scenes each of which lasts about a minute. While it is certainly not pervasive throughout the movie, it is hard to ignore.

I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and agree that is is one of the better audio presentations that I can remember. Lots of detail and some very good use of the surround channels througout. And some very good LFE, too.

Re: Looper - Blu-ray review

This went under the radar, but the HTS reviewers brought it to my attention: thanks for the review, as usual!

Re: Looper - Blu-ray review

I loved this movie, but have to admit it is precisely the kind of movie I gravitate towards anyway. Well-thought-out time travel, makes you think, good action, Bruce, good acting throughout, well paced, satisfying the first time through and leaves you with enough to think about that you want to see it at least once or twice more --- one of the best sci-fi movies of the last few years. And I like sci-fi. When it is good.

Makes me think of 12 Monkeys, another Bruce Willis flick, with time travel theme, dark and lots to think about, one of my all-time favorites. Now I have to watch IT again.

Thanks for the great review.
