Looper = Movie of the year

Go see it!! Well acted, great plot, and overall just badass. I will be shocked if it doesn't win an Oscar.

Only two that were close to action movies to win best picture were

Braveheart (1995)
The Departed (2006)

I think one of the Lord of the Rings movies won best picture also
Maybe that could be considered action as well

I wouldn't consider those action movies. Action movies have very thin plots. Both these plus looper have very deep plots.

Les Miserables will win best picture.

Action movies change over the years, dude. Dr. No was considered an action movie in 1962.

I read this and decided I'd wait until it was released to give it a watch.

I dunno how fair of a criticism it is because I haven't seen it, obviously, but it's about what I expected.

I didn't really like the ending but I was loving the movie up until that point.
