justAtadcast: Episode 5 – Looper

October 1, 2012 — 2 Comments

Another week, another justAtadcast. The reason, of course, is that the Fall season is really getting kicked off and almost every week there are great movies to talk about. Heck, this week alone there were two movies worth discussing. One was Pitch Perfect, which while fairly lightweight is also a ton of fun. If you’d like, you can read my review of that film over at Dork Shelf. The other film, the one that could inspire almost endless dialogue, and the topic of this week’s episode is Rian Johnson’s new time travel flick, Looper, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt.

This week on The justAtadcast, I invited on two internet friends, cinephiles and writers. Kevin Ketchum (@Kevin_Ketchum) writes for Next Projection. Sam Fragoso (@SamFragoso) writes at his own site, Duke and the Movies, as well as Fan the Fire Magazine. We jumped right in to a lengthy discussion of the ins and outs of Looper. It’s another long episode, but Looper is a film that calls for that sort of discussion. We get into everything from the time travel mechanics, to the thematic weight of the film, as well as Rian Johnson’s style and his brilliant casting. We hope you enjoy the discussion.

If you have any feedback on Looper, this episode, or the show in general, don’t hesitate to email me at coreyatad@gmail.com.

    As a former colleague, I’m sorry Sam, but you do not cross Piper Perabo. This is like explaining I don’t know…Barbara Hershey to young people (you’re like what, seventeen?). Piper Perabo is the star of masterpieces as Coyote Ugly, Cheaper by the Dozen and Lost and Delirious. In those movies she has performed with great actresses such as Tyra Banks, Ashton Kutcher and Mischa Barton.

    Also, Perabo is an Azorean name. You don’t wanna mess with people from the Azores.
