Joe Berkowitz: "Writer/director Rian Johnson’s Looper, which opens on September 28, is the latest in a long line of time travel movies. Here, Johnson talks to Co.Create about continuity, character, and making up the rules of time travel" ...
John Hiscock: "In the first film, the unlucky crew of the space freighter Nostromo finds a derelict spaceship with a “space jockey” – a giant humanoid with an exploded chest in the pilot’s chair.
