It’s a new year and time for a new column. This year I decided it was time to share some of the dirty little secrets that I don’t often discuss. To bare my soul each week, reaching into the deepest recesses of my coal-black heart.
These are my confessions…
Confession #1: I thought Looper kind of sucked
Since the polarizing release of The Last Jedi, fans of Star Wars have been discussing their love/hate relationship with the film. So often when Rian Johnson’s name is brought into the discussion, they mention his body of work to bolster his filmmaking credentials. You’ll hear a few people cite Brick, but the vast majority of fans use Looper as the Rian Johnson calling card of quality. ‘He made Looper. Looper!’ they cry like Stellan Skarsgard in bemoaning the Fields Medal.
