Limitless

Who wouldn’t want to be able to think clearer and faster and use 100% of their brain instead of the 20% that’s always quoted?  I would think most everyone would.  The movie Limitless takes you on that ride.  The main character, Eddie, a down and out wannabe writer, comes across a pill that is guaranteed to open up new connections in the brain and allow you to focus completely and have access to everything you’ve ever read, seen, heard or thought about – and it’s all completely organized in your “new” brain.  The catch is that the effects of the pill only last so long, you also might die if you stop taking them, and the pills are incredibly rare.  This causes a lot of problems for anyone involved.  It’s not long before Eddie’s life changes for the better and his newfound intelligence and new lifestyle catch the attention of some of the most powerful people in the business and financial worlds.  Everyone wants a “piece” of Eddie and his world is either going to flourish or come crashing down on him and everyone he’s associated with.  It didn't seem that far-fetched watching it, which makes it a lot easier for me to buy into.  Makes you wonder what you would do in his situation...
