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.
  • Shogun.
  • A Few Good Men.
  • A final thought… You can’t go back.
