The hosts review:
- I’m just trying to figure out why Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis are both trying to do a Ryan Gosling impersonation.
- If Joseph Gordon-Levitt turns into Bruce Willis, what hope do any of us have?
- Some disagreement about how they show what Joe’s motivation is.
- It is universally agreed that Gordon-Levitt’s makeup was unnecessary.
- Breakout performance in the movie… the kid!
- Toss the word “paradox” around liberally, and then all problems with the plot go away.
- All the hosts seemed to have different thoughts on what the movie was going to be after seeing the preview… philosophy, action, time travel, chase?
- Was The Rainmaker pulling the strings to set it all up?
- A detour into…telekinetic manual adoration.
- Tony was surprised to find out that this wasn’t a book first. All the complaints that the hosts have are things that could have been cut from a novel to make it a film.
- Mixed reviews on if Gordon-Levitt was a better Bruce Willis than Bruce Willis.
- JCVD & Time Cop. Robo-TimeCop.
- The Hobbit.
- A Few Good Men.
- A final thought… You can’t go back.
