Actually, I just saw Looper a couple weeks ago (sometimes budget theaters are the way to go). And the lack of 'sci-fi' -type special effects was indeed a refreshing aspect of it (especially with time travel, in which films frequently overindulge in effects to physically portray the occurrence of time paradoxes, the consequences of which should be beyond the visual/tactile range of perception). I was turned off by some of the mafia culture stuff though (cigarettes, recreational drug use, bodies being blown apart). Overall a film that I really liked, yet probably wouldn't choose to own.
