    New Movie - Lucy

    I've only seen the trailers, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with Scar-Jo, but does anyone else find it funny that the whole premise of the movie seems to be based on the totally false myth about humans only using 10% of their brains? I guess they're probably not going for a super realistic plot, and the whole thing is likely just an excuse to show the lead actress in tight clothing, which is just fine, I suppose.

    yeah i didn't get that either. Humans use all of their brain. Plus I really don't know why I would pay to go see it either. What's the reason behind her superpowers? What is she doing?

    Seems exactly like the Bradley Cooper movie "Limitless" from a few years ago…although I'm sure that wasn't entirely original either.

    She was good in "Under the Skin," a very unique Sci. Fi. flick.

    This popped up on Facebook after I watched the trailer for "Lucy" the other day. The premise for that one seems interesting, too.

    Another movie using an unrealistic plot just to sell tickets? No way I'll be going to see this. First Space Jam and now this movie, way to go movie industry.

    She looks pretty bad-azz and her big friends are an added bonus.

    Re: New Movie - Lucy

    I love when people pick apart movies for being unrealistic. Umm How about Transformers, Star Wars, and about every other movie out. It would suck if they all were realistic.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Are you saying Transformers isn't real?

    When I was watching the preview I was thinking she looking like La Femme Nikita with superpowers.
