Mostly because the reunion consists of one person… at two different stages of life. And, as you may recall, the younger version has been hired to kill the older version. So the conversation is understandably a bit strained in this Looper clip. I like how Bruce Willis immediately dismisses discussing the time travel aspects, partially because it would be exceedingly complicated and partially because the guy Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are both playing doesn’t exactly seem to be the kind of guy who would have a firm grasp on the science involved. On the other hand, I would have liked to see them try, especially if all they had were straws. (Via Twitch)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
