And Bacon, I guarantee its not the film, it's you. ;) because its effective for 99% of everyone else.
The majority of the movie had Joe being a jerk. He killed himself and I was happy that the world was saved, but I felt nothing about how he died. I cared more that Bruce Willis died than JGL. At least Bruce seemed to have a reason to do what he's doing that I understood. So Cid's going to close all the loops. How will that affect "THE WORLD"? Weren't all the Loopers gonna close their loops anyway?
The Rainmaker will destroy the world.

Sorry if I've done this before, but I can't seem to find any post with a list...Anyway:

1. Looper
= Life of Pi
3. The Dark Knight Rises
4. The Artist
5. Chronicle
6. Skyfall
7. Seven Psychopaths
8. The Raid
9. The Cabin in the Woods
10. Ted

Honourable Mentions:
The Hunger Games
The Amazing Spider-Man
The Avengers

Unchained and Zero Dark Thirty aren't out til the end of the month, I missed Silver Linings Playbook, Rust and Bone and Argo and as previously expressed I have no interest whatsoever in Lincoln. Or The Master, now that I think about it.

I'm trying to hold out until Zero Dark Thirty is released wide here in the states on the 11th. It is considered a front runner for Best Picture, so I feel it would be a bit disingenious for me to complete a top 10 list without seeing it first. I also plan to see Life of Pi soon as well, but other than that, my top 10 is looking fairly complete thus far. If you guys haven't had the chance to see Silver Linings Playbook and it comes near you, I highly recommend checking it out.
