This review features some very minor spoilers.
The first time I watched Paul Greengrass' Captain Phillips, I was a little underwhelmed by it. I thought it was a really good film, but I'd heard all the hype surrounding Tom Hank's performance, and it just didn't have the same impact on me that it was having on so many others. Basically I thought he was merely good with the exception of the film's final moments. In those final moments Hanks was…
Film 21 on my Re-watch Wednesday list.

Disclaimer: I have not read the Watchmen graphic novel. Therefore no comparisons will be made between the film and that of it's source material. My opinion is solely based Zack Snyder's film and it's content.
I first saw Watchmen on the big screen the year of it's release. Up until I heard about…
"Gentlemen, you had my curiousity. But now, you have my attention."
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 pratical 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.
