Limitless (Oops…I mean Lucy)

Oh no, is this becoming a trend?

Like every few years do we have to make a movie about someone who does drugs and miraculously accesses 100% of their brain and is super good at stuff and maybe controls matter? Can we not?

Why are we still watching movies about people using “more than 10% of their brain!” as if it hasn’t been explained to basically everyone by now that the rest of your brain is for memories and vital functions. Honestly now that we have science this shouldn’t even be a concept anymore. As far as I know, when you use 100% of your brain it means all your synapses are firing at once and you’re having a seizure which, while exciting for observers in it’s own way, isn’t exactly going to help you kill even a moderately powerful bad guy so..

Also, since when does speed (or whatever fake drug that is basically speed but “new”!) make you able to manipulate the world around you contrary to basic physics or any kind of logic?
