Wick on Draft DayVery Good Movie

Draft Day scores with football fans and our dates alike. They like it because it’s cute, with a happy ending. We like it because it’s got Jim Brown, Roger Goodell and Arian Foster. O…

    I’d have to give the nod to Inception, with its impressive special effects and far more cerebral plot.

    I suppose it would depend on your taste in movies, or drugs for that matter. Limitless features a drug that closely resembles speed, with far less hallucinatory effects than in Inception, which probably could be compared to LSD. Inception dealt more with escaping from reality to dreams, whereas Limitless deals more with reaching a higher potential while still being conscious.

    From a reality standpoint, I think we would be far more likely to see the drug from Limitless than the ones from Inception. But, at the end of the day, I’ll pick Inception as the better movie.

    Regarding modern marvel’s Review
    “Any time Bradley Cooper’s not on screen, the movie misses a step.” Good observation.
