March 21st - Limitless
March 21st, 2011
I have to say that I was excited to see the new Bradley Cooper, Robert Deniro movie Limitless. A movie that looked great in the previews. A movie that looked like a guy that would take a pill and would become smarter than everyone else in the world, and could pretty much do anything that his mind would let him do. Instead this movie was about a down and out writer that was having writers block, who just broke up with his girlfriend and who just ran into his former drug dealing brother-in-law who hooks him up with a new drug. And then the movie becomes about a junky who is now depending on this drug to get through his day to day life. You see the drug has terrible side effects that his brother-in-law didn't tell him about because like a lot of drug dealers he was killed. But even after hearing about the dangerous side effects the junky, Bradley Cooper still takes the drug so he now can become a Wall Street whiz. I know, I said he was a writer but I guess there is NO money in that right Tom Clancy???? That's how Robert Deniro gets involved in the movie. He is a huge hedge fund guy and wants to use Bradly Coopers brain to pull of a huge merger. I didn't know what the hell was going on with all the money talk in the movie. The only thing that I understood was the dramatically STUPID turn this movie took. Bradley Cooper had to borrow $100,000 from a Russian mobster to get his Wall Street on, and the mobster came to collect and took one of his pills. Well of course he became addicted too and wanted a bunch more of the pills but Cooper was out, and was just about to be killed by the Russian when instead he stabbed the Russian who took his last pill in front of him. Well, as his blood was spilling on the floor, Cooper needed a fix so bad that he actually drank the blood and the drug magically got back in his system. So this was like Gordon Gecko fucked Dracula and that's how we got this shitfest known as Limitless. I HATED THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!
