Having Directed the likes of The Exorcism of Emily Rose (which I quite like) and The Day the Earth Stood Still (I am blessed by the fact I have still yet to see this), Scott Derrickson’s next feature film stars Ethan Hawke as true crime writer Ellison Oswalt. Ellison moves his family (wife and two children) to the source of his next novel, a town in which a family of four were found hanging from a tree, whilst the youngest daughter, Stephanie, is missing. It is Ellison’s job to find out what happened to the little girl and her family.

Set twenty-two years into the future, Looper stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Joe, a Looper from the year 2044. Now, in the year 2070 time travel has been invented (and then quickly banned), and a Looper’s job is to wait at a precise spot at a precise time and kill the man who arrives from the future. A man cannot be killed in 2070 due to advancements in technology, which make it impossible to dispose of a body, thus sending the victim back to 2044 is the best option.

In the year 2012 there were two different takes on the Snow White story, slightly similar to that of the year 2010 in which two films based on Greek mythology were released within a few months of each other. Tarsem Singh’s take on Snow White was light hearted and enjoyable, while Rupert Saunders’ version is a slightly darker version playing down the humour elements. Anyway, which one is better? Well, having seen both of them this is an easier question to answer so there is no need for a fight.
