Limitless Review. 100 Word Limit!

A to Z is over, but the movies never end. Thank goodness for that, right? Right.

Limitless hit the second run theater this week, and I was fortunate enough to see Bradley Cooper in a serious role. Sure, The Hangover wasn't all fun and games, but Limitless? Completely different animal. If you've wondered about this movie, here are my thoughts in, drumroll please, one hundred, delicious words.

Eddie Mora loses his girlfriend and his sanity in the same afternoon. The first because he's a loser. The second because he takes a magic pill. This untested drug opens up the eighty percent of the brain humans can't access. Now, Eddie's limitless. He finishes his book, cuts his scraggly hair, makes mega money on the stock market, but can't remember chunks of his life. Side effects? Ruh-roh! The cinematography made me dizzy, and the narration distracted from the story. And Cooper slurps blood off his apartment floor. *shudder* Interesting concept, but not as visually pleasing as I'd hoped. 

There you have it! I'll post an April book review on Wednesday and an A-Z Challenge recap for you on Friday. Summer movie season is here! What will you see? Well, other than that one on July 15. :) EXCITED!!!!!

Always love the summer movie season. Looking forward to Kung Fu Panda 2, because I'm a sucker for both animation and animals.

I felt kind of "meh" about seeing this one. Sounds like it has a great premise, but it's not enough of a premise to make me sit through it.
