Speaking of unlocking, Limitless is a new thriller about a man who unlocks his full mental potential with the help of a revolutionary new drug.
Bradley Cooper (The Hangover) plays that man, an aspiring writer who is able to recall everything he has ever read, seen or heard, comprehend complex equations and beguile anyone he meets.
However he must keep taking the drug or else suffer from its brutal side effects, which include dodging mysterious stalkers, a vicious gangster and an intense police investigation.
Also starring Robert DeNiro, Limitless is rated PG with violence, sexually suggestive scenes and coarse language.
Matthew McConaughey plays a Los Angeles criminal defence attorney who operates out of the back of his Lincoln sedan in Lincoln Lawyer.
He has spent most of his career defending garden variety criminals until he lands the case of his career: defending a Beverly Hills playboy accused of rape and attempted murder. But this seemingly straightforward case suddenly develops into a deadly game of survival.
Already getting positive reviews, Lincoln Lawyer boasts a strong supporting cast including Ryan Phillipe, Marisa Tomei, William H. Macy, Josh Lucas and John Leguizamo. Classified 14A with a warning of sexual violence.
A review for the new sci-fi comedy Paul gives us a new genre of movie: geeksploitation.
And that was a negative review.
One of the positive reviews calls it a funny remake of E.T. for not-quite-grown-ups.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) are a pair of sci-fi geeks who encounter an alien on an insane road trip through America’s UFO heartland.
Directed by Superbad’s Greg Mottola, it also stars Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live), Jason Bateman (Couples Retreat, Hancock) and Seth Rogen as the voice of Paul. Rated 14A for coarse language.
