VANCOUVER, BC (Hollywood North) - As a time travel researcher, educator, and journalist, as well as a time travel surveillance target, my experience of the low budget, low-tech time travel action thriller LOOPER exceeded expectations. I recommend the film, even with its "pulp fiction genre" characters, to all serious students of time science in this era of the quantum access coverup and embargo.
I do have first-hand experience with the U.S. secret DARPA/CIA time travel program by which to judge the veracity of basic aspects of LOOPER. My book “Exopolitics: Politics, Government and Law on the Universe” and my persona both are/were reportedly the subject of secret U.S. government DARPA/CIA time travel surveillance. My book Exopolitics was time travel physically from at least 2005 when it was first published back to at least 1971 where it was witnessed by three independent witnesses and where it was part of DARPA/CIA time travel surveillance. Concurrently in 1971 I myself, as General Counsel of the NYC Environmental Protection Administration was invited to address about 50 U.S. government male employees dressed in suits, probably DARPA and CIA personnel at a phonied up "environmental talk". This event was a cover for time travel surveillance of me by DARPA and CIA project personnel who in 1971 had in their possession a book I would write in 1999 founding Exopolitics (the science of relations among intelligent civilizations in the multiverse) and would publish online in 2000 and as as printed book in 2005, fully 35 years later. The CIA and DARPA men in that room IN 1971 listening to me talk about NYC EPA plans to protect the environment could easily have been out of the cast of LOOPER.
Here is a movie industry summation of the plot OF LOOPER: "In the futuristic action thriller LOOPER, time travel will be invented - but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a 'looper' - a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) - is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good... until the day the mob decides to 'close the loop,' sending back Joe's future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination."
Now, in 2012 it is public knowledge that the U.S. government has secretly possessed time travel technology for at lease 40 years, thanks to courageous whistleblowers like Andrew D. Basiago, William Brett Stillings, Bernard Mendez, Michael Relfe, and Arthur Neumann. As an investigative journalist reporting on U.S. secret quantum access programs and their time travel & teleportation technologies, I have had my investigative articles publicly ridiculed by Tommy Vietor, the official spokesperson of the U.S. National Security Council, who did so on Jan. 3, 2012 in an unprecedented "official denial" to Wired.com. One national newspaper, Examiner.com, illegally terminated my contract franchise with them in Nov. 2011 after I published whistleblower testimony that a young Barack Obama has been part of the 1980s CIA teleportation jump room program. Examiner.com unlawfully terminated my contract on fabricated grounds that "Mr. Webre published false information" when in fact all I did was expose the U.S. secret 1980s CIA jump room teleportation program, using two whistleblowers from the CIA program as my sources.
LOOPER sneaks around the time travel embargo
An entertainment vehicle like LOOPER that sneaks around the time travel embargo with a plot set in a dystopia based on time travel paradoxes, catastrophic and positive timelines, and the meeting of present and future selves along a single timeline is a welcome relief to a harassed time travel investigative reporter like me. The laughs, thrills, and novel time-travel shop talk of LOOPER replaces the tense daily drama of exposing the truth of the U.S. government's time travel embargo, and its suppression of teleportation technology that would end petroleum-based transportation, global oil wars and ecocidal petroleum-driven pollution in favor of a world teleportation system.
Sure, LOOPER is not cinematographically perfect. In one scene, the blood makeup on a young boy who will travel either the timeline of a future world terrorist or a normal happy man looks like kindergarten face paint.
LOOPER is historically accurate, though. One former U.S. chrononaut who once officially time traveled for the U.S. government told me, "There are unethical uses of time travel by unethical parties, by going to the past and manipulating past events."
Over all, if you are somewhat familiar with time science "lingo", you will enjoy the seeing one of your favorite sciences in action. If you are new to time science, or agnostic, or even skeptical, well like I said, here is an opportunity to sneak in some Time Travel education by enjoying LOOPER.
TIME TRAVEL MOVIE RATING: 4 Chronovisors (out of a possible 5).
