If you kill your future self, you haven't harmed yourself in the present. If you harm your current/past self it'll harm you and the future self. Remember the scene where he's carving stuff into his arm? Or remember the scene near the beginning where his fellow looper friend doesn't close his loop, and his loop runs, and how they catch him?

I'm not sure where you're going with this, but I hope you realize that you are really just reiterating my point.

Looper 6/10 ~ wasn't horrible, kind of silly especially the target; JGL did a good job acting like Bruce Willis with the facial expressions and mannerisms; could have been a lot better imo

The ultimate twist would have been old Joe coming back from the future and knocking up someone, and their kid was the rainmaker. LOL Terminator styles.

If taking the eye drop drugs makes me Bruce Willis, I don't see anything bad about that.
