  • Summary: Eddie Morra: "I was blind but now I see". The story is about man thinks he has solved all his problems when an untested, top-secret drug makes him smarter, leading to financial and social success. But he never considered the side effects or the people who want to keep the drug to remain a secret. A good visual popcorn movie with it's enjoyable scenes.

"Limitless" by Yojimbo

  • Excerpt: A down at heel writer is offered a brain-enhancing drug after a chance encounter which seems to be the answer to all his problems, but soon he begins to encounter some adverse side effects that threaten his new life. I must admit, it's very refreshing to see a thriller that touts brain power rather than fire power as a solution to life's problems, and this stylish little indie-thriller initially intrigues with its fairly unique concept.

  • Excerpt: If you could take a pill that would make you smart… that would increase your intelligence; would you take it? And if it worked, would you want more? Is the Pope a Catholic? Eddie is an struggling writer who has just lost his high flying girlfriend, and while he is down in the dumps, an old friend (and drug dealer) of his approaches him and offers him an experimental drug called NZT, that allows people to access 100% of their brain's power (as it is said that we, a normal...

  • Summary: The paranoia that drives this film creates a brilliant atmosphere, and parts of the scope of the plot are well-executed. The problem is that the film shoots for an ambitious plot arc and has to sometimes gloss over large plot holes with Cooper's voice-over narration. Although the narration aims for a "Fight Club" level of sardonic wit, sometimes it is over-used and used too much to provide unnecessary exposition.

  • Summary: I generally see anything that De Niro is in so for me that was the draw. Up until I saw Bradley Cooper in this movie, I didn't think much of him. I fell in love with him and his character in this movie. I wouldn't consider this a thriller. I think it's a total date movie.

Limited Appeal

  • Excerpt: As I sit down to write this, I just noted that ‘Limitless’ was #1 at the box office this past weekend. If you’re one of those who took this in already and thought this movie was all that and a bag of popcorn, you probably don’t want to read my take on it. I promise not to be offended if you just close this web page right now. For me, this was just another example of someone taking a great concept and making a just so-so film out of it.

  • Summary: I really wanted to dislike Bradley Cooper in his role, but I'll be damned if I probably wouldn't have done the same thing when presented with a drug that turns you into a mix of guru and playboy - it was a fun ride and makes me think that Cooper needs to be leading man more often.

  • Summary: This movie was much better than what I thought it'd be. The story is pretty good. And, the scene where Cooper's character almost died is fantastic!
