I liked Chronicle quite a bit. A little known early entry in the "found footage" category is "The Last Broadcast". It predates Blair Witch by about a year. Production values and acting are a notch below Blair Witch but I thought the plot was more interesting. Truly lo-fi, IMDB lists the budget as $900, and claims that it was the first all-digital movie.
Mrs. A. and I just watched "Keeping Mum". A dark little British comedy with Rowan Atkinson, Maggie Smith, Kirstin Scott Thomas and Patrick Swayze (!). Maggie Smith as a psychotic housekeeper with a knack for dealing with troublesome neighbors. It's all played fairly light, and Mrs. A. enjoyed it despite being incredibly squeamish.
I watched Looper a couple of nights ago, I liked but did not love it. Frankly, I didn't see a lot of resemblance between JGL and Bruce Willis, although the makeup was outstanding otherwise. I was annoyed by some pretty major plot holes:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
In the future it's almost impossible to kill someone and dispose of the body, but it's a snap to send them into the past without anybody noticing? Despite establishing this major plot point, they kill Joe's wife without a second thought? Despite establishing this major plot point, the Rainmaker is able to completely decimate a city with impunity (as appears to be shown on TV in the future)?
and one minor one: why the hell does the abandoned factory have a functioning furnace? Who maintains it? Hasn't anybody noticed the smoke coming out of the smokestack?
There have been a spate of good time travel movies recently: Source Code was excellent, as was Time Crimes, a Spanish movie that came out a couple of years ago ("Chrono Crimenes"). Both involve a man looping through time trying to change the future, but each takes that plotline in very different directions.
