by Nick Powell · October 20, 2012 · LAMBscores · No Comments

In this edition of the LAMBScores we see how Looper, one of the most anticipated films of the year stacks up against the rest of the year’s films. Is it bad? Is it good? Is it epic? We also have scores for the glee-ful Pitch Perfect, and the Adam Sandler animated Hotel Transylvania. Do any of this movies have a chance to crack the Top 10? Find out below. And as always, feel free to post your own scores in the LAMBScores Forum, but please, read the rules beforehand.

Rotten Tomatoes: 4.65 (93%)
IMDB: 4.05 (8.1/10)
LAMB: 4.17 (50)
Average: 4.33

LAMB Bites:
At the Back: “Intelligent, tense and not afraid to play with it’s audiences expectations.”
Anti-Film School: “The first half of Looper is near classic levels but the second half is shockingly comatose and Johnson has trouble recovering for the finale.”
The Cinematic Spectacle: “The film feels like a mixed bag, but comes through with an interesting story and an intriguing construction.”
Benend’s Basement: “A very original and sleek production supported by a supremely talented cast is ever-so-slightly let down by a script that tries a little too hard.”
The Movie Review Warehouse: “Great thematic and emotional payoff covers any holes in this mind-bender. Truly one of the best of the year.”
Can’t Stop the Movies: “If you’ve seen a Terminator movie, it’s pretty much the same thing only a little goofier.”
