Watched Limitless with my uncle while on phase one of my summer vacation, which I spent visiting my family in the tropics. Really liked it, although I don't tend to gravitate towards action films. Even though I live in Berkeley and fit the stereotype don't watch much TV, I do love films. And now I'm suddenly feeling a little like I need a huge HD screen TV to watch my movies and practice some video games so that I can beat my little cousins on my next visit. It's getting a little embarrassing ; p

Anyway, going back to the film... there aren't that many action packed science fiction films that grab my interest. But imagining the possibilities of reaching 100% access of our brain's capabilities alone sure is worth the daydreaming. There's also good commentary on macho power hunger alongside the futuristic science theme. Maybe De Niro's ego got a little hurt in the movie?
P.S. If you get a hold of some of that "refined" NZT of the end of the movie please let me know, I'm so looking forward to learning languages in a day ; )
