Limitless, directed by Neil Burger (The Illusionist), is about a man who takes a drug which enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity. This is ironic considering how the film requires it’s audience to use so little of theirs. It’s definitely one of those movies that asks you to check your brain at the door, which in itself is fine. This film, however, also asks that you check your imagination.

Nickelodeon hit the mark with this animated western, exceeding my expectations in overall story and bringing something refreshing to the respected genres. Westerns are in no way easy to deliver on anymore, but it seems that Hollywood is two for two with True Grit and now Rango. Not your usual western but a western regardless.
