To add some life to this blog, I've decided to just start watching random movies on Netflix and blogging about them.  I'm just picking movies at random, usually from what Netflix recommends to me.  The only criteria is that is has to be a movie I have never seen before.

First up: Limitless.  It stars some Bradley Cooper dude and some Abbie Cornish chick with some Robert De Niro thrown in to give the flick some credibility I guess.

The gist of the movie is that this bum writer finds this designer drug that enables you to use 100% of your brain capacity.  Through the use of the drug, he has an epic rise in his career and life, making millions trading on the stock market and just totally killing life while on the drug.

Predictably there are side effects to the drug.  Evidently once you stop taking it, it kills you.  Also predictably there is a limited supply and everyone who knows about the drug wants it.

I watched this movie like 2 hours ago and I've already forgotten most of it.  Except this one cool part where this chick was running from this dude.  She took the drug to help escape.  During her escape, she used a kid on ice skates as a weapon.  Originality! That's the only bit of it you'll get from this flick.

So would I watch this movie again? I doubt it.  Do I recommend it? Sure, if you have 100 minutes of your life you'd like to kill, you could watch this movie.  Personally I'd save that 100 minutes for something more important... like masturbating.
