    Nice tits first of all. I surrender to my very nature, and I won't hide it as well as ashamed of it whatsoever.

    Secondly


    The Lucy is an amazing movie. It told us that when we reach our brain capacity of 100%, we can do anything. Which I doubt.
    If become god only need 100% of our brain usage, then this universe could be too simple. But why not, the universe could be simple. Maybe there is always something beyond, beyond the universe, parallel universe, afteruniverse, who know?

    Brain capacity is hard to imagine. Why we only used 20% of our brain, it hard to answer. If the purpose of life is to pass on the information, then one day inevitably we are all going to be Lucy. Once again, everything is possible. Right now, right here, we are standing at the pre-singularity era, it won't take long for everything to come true. Coz all the movies,videos (which so far the best way to pass information), technologies, philosophy, science are reaching the same point, point of finding the answer of single question: Why?

    I'm excited for opening the pandora box, but maybe not for long.


    "hello world"

    We use all of our brain. That whole notion that we only use 10-20% of our brain is hogwash...that we don't all have untapped potential in our brain, that if we only unlocked we'd be super smart. Brain power in evolutionary terms is "expensive"...it requires a boatload of energy. If you don't use it...you lose it.

    Although for movie material...that's ok.

    Actually books are the best way to pass on information not movies or videos.

    The question you ask will only be answered by yourself for you're the one wanting to know the answer to your questions.

    If you think that there is only one answer well think again. Many people think the answer is...

    The film, while (reasonably) enjoyable, certainly wrecks any "scientific credibility" that Morgan Freeman may have gained from narrating pop-sci TV documentaries.
    The latest review I read stated something along the lines of "after the first 30 minutes you can see where it's going (i.e. Lucy becoming super) and there's no longer any tension".
    For my money Bradley Cooper's Limitless was far more watchable and fun.
    For crying out loud they even skipped right over a possible fight scene when Lucy faced the gang of drug dealers. Yeah, wave her hand and take their guns away, but what should have happened is that she should have handed them their asses (i.e. kicked bottom big style) a la Black Widow. Pinning them to the ceiling... WTF?
    Luc Besson is one of my favourite writers/ directors.
    But Lucy?
    I'll wait until the DVD is in the remaindered bin..

    I couldn't get past the previews. I don't know if the plot was poorly explained or if it's really that silly, but it seems like she becomes some kind of X-Men character purely because her brain is working harder. I couldn't tell where it went from there aside from the fact that she suddenly has to kill dozens of people for some reason.

    I saw Freeman do an interview where he attempted to explain the notion of using all of your brain as if he were some kind of scientist ... it was embarrassing. Watching him attempt to explain the physics behind the show he narrates is pretty much the same way. I get that he's interested in science, but when he starts acting like an expert it kind of bothers me.

    It IS that silly.
    But it could have been done (far) better.
    Not one Besson's best.
