LOOPER movie Review

LOOPER movie Review

Any review of the movie LOOPER that tells you essentially any elements of the plot is going to be written by a jerk who doesn't want you to get the full movie experience - take that to the bank. What we're going to talk about here and now is how you need to see the movie and what sort of mood you need to be in. LOOPER is a time travel movie when you go into it, and a bit of a baffling mystery wrapped inside an enigma when you walk out of it - but you wont be walking right out of it, you'll be sitting in the chair thinking about what you just watched, just like you're supposed to while the credits are rolling.

LOOPER time travel gets real in SlashGear’s chat with Dr Edward Farhi

It's almost time for the big drop of the new science fiction action time travel blockbuster LOOPER to hit theaters, so SlashGear took the opportunity to speak with none other than Dr. Edward Farhi of real-life time travel study fame. What we learn from Farhi, aka Director at the Center for Theoretical Physics at MIT, is that time travel into the future is indeed very possible - theoretically - but that backwards movement - like LOOPER suggests - just isn't in the cards.

Curiosity becomes First roving machine on Mars

This afternoon the folks responsible for the NASA mission at their Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California announced that they'd begun to move forward on wheels. The Curiosity rover landed less than a month ago on the planet, it being another of NASA's successful landings in what's expected to be a long line of Mars explorations.

Looper international trailer spills the beans on time travel

Looper international trailer spills the beans on time travel

It's time to make time a weapon with the 30-year action plot behind the upcoming action and science fiction film Looper in two international trailers that all but give away everything. Just as it was, essentially, with Total Recall, we've got everything we need to know the beginning, middle, and ending of the movie. What's missing, and what makes it all worthwhile, is the action as it happens, and the science that explains the whole of the story.

With the next chapter in the Bourne storyline ready to unfold on the big screen tomorrow, Director Tony Gilroy has been more than open about his cut-down on massive camera movement for eye candy. In an interview with Now Toronto's Norman Wilner, Gilroy begins by noting how unexpected it was to be coming back to the series: "After I wrote Ultimatum, I was, 'Man, I'll never be back here again." He quickly changed a tune once the ideas for a whole new character started flowing, and the aesthetic of the film itself was to be back on the drawing board as well.

Kate Beckinsale reveals her phone of choice in Total Recall interview

One of the bonus bits of information we did not expect to get from the press junket for Total Recall just a little over a week ago was Kate Beckinsale's mobile phone of choice. It's a fun thing to know, what celebrities such as she use on a daily basis in the communication universe, and since she does use a next-level futuristic in-hand phone in the movie, it seemed only natural for SlashGear to ask her what her real-life tech life was like. The answers she gave may surprise you.

Total Recall Kate Beckinsale interview shows love (and distrust) of sci-fi and action

With the next giant science fiction blockbuster Total Recall (2012) headed to theaters this summer (out now, in fact), SlashGear took the opportunity to speak with Kate Beckinsale on her role as the main villain. As it turns out, Beckinsale doesn't just find herself in a series of action movies because she's custom-built for the role, it's got a lot to do with her love for science fiction, fantasy, and the whole action genre as well. Have a peek at why Beckinsale's four brother's had a lot to do with why you'll be seeing her play Lori Quaid on the big screen this week.
