PostSubject: Limitless Movie   Thu 28 Jul 2011, 11:24 pm

Saw this recently release movie online recently, and while there is nothing earth shattering, just thought I'd share high level insight into my thoughts, or the purpose of this move.

http://www.limitless.com/en-GB/home.aspx




1. Directed at youth who will want the smart pills the main character takes, and think it's cool.
2. It could also be meant to scare smart people, because it sets them up at targets to be attacked, which will help to dumb-down the perception of the public
3. Reduces man's respect for nature (ie God), by trying to show that we can't gain such intelligence levels without "Man's" influence.

From an astute acquaintance....

Quote :
The conditioning I saw in it is the usual hyper-materialism that big

bucks and superhuman advantages are the key to becoming master of life.

However, the big lie at the end is that it doesn't matter whether it's

earned through experience like DiNiro said - or comes from

'medication'. DiNiro loses because he's old. The message there is

compelling on the surface since it's true everybody loses capacity with

age and have to retire, but it doesn't follow that pills gave the young

guy permanent powers. As usual the scriptwriters waved a wand and his

powers were permanent even when the pills ran out.
Even if it did, in

real life some guy like DiNiro but 20 years younger would get on the

same pills and kick his ass off the planet.



The predictive program seems to be making people long for magic pills,

while also assuming humans are rejects off the assembly line of life

unless "perfected" by technology.
