Limitless ....... review!!

So.....Limitless. Lets review the Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro movie about a new drug that once taken, allows you to use 100% of your brain.....shall we. All right. So Bradley Cooper (or that guy on many of your ladies "lists") is a writer, partier, and kind of a slacker. Cant imagine that lifestyle ...anyways... He has a book deal and cant write. His lady leaves him..  and then.. he runs into an old acquaintance. This guy has an experimental drug. He gives our writer a pill. So.. he pops it. And...                    
For those of you who haven't seen the movie..... your review ends here. I give it an 8 outta 10. Go see it. Seriously take your lady or your mom (losers) or somebody and check it out. Its good.

All right the rest of you... he pops the pill... and... Its pretty much awesome! He can absorb all knowledge basically instantly, he can talk any lady into bed, he is the center of any party, he becomes super popular, super successful, gets his girl back big time and millions and .... wait ...wait... I know what you are thinking. "It cant be all good right! What kind of moral message would that leave us with? A drug movie where the lead character ends up way better off cause of the drugs by the end of the film? Wheres the morality in that huh?"

Well in truth there are some side effects... He nearly dies.....He has a blackout or two where he ends up in some trouble and some headaches...... but our writer is running for president, perma-smart and ridiculously happy at the end... They did make that lazy moral kinda movie!! Well I guess this wasn't made by the people that brought you the  This is your brain on drugs commercial.... just sayin. Side note... I guess don't let uncle Freddie with the addictive personality see this film.

But what about the rest of the movie? Well its smart and well written. There are some terrificly clever screen shots of letters falling from the sky/ ceiling tiles changing........  

or this tunnel vision thats cool but gave me near carsickness watching it. Seriously! Plus there is a scene involving blood towards the end that had the entire theatre groan..... loudly.... awesome!!!! DeNiro is DeNiro and perfect in his smallish role.... and.... Bradley Cooper is in near Wolfpack cool form.

Anyways go see it. Plus it makes for a great after movie conversation of what would you do if you had limitless brainpower. Heres my top 3.

I cant believe it. But this actually exists! Really Hollywood?

3.  I would personally rewrite the last hand full of sequels that totally disappointed.....

2.  I would use my brain power to determine what the little pocket in your jeans pocket is actually for.

1. And of course all forms of mind control!!!..... "You are getting very sleepy readers........ very very.....sleepy. You will do whatever I say in tomorrows post!! I promise it will be tasteful.....kinda!"
