Just as [ profile] spiffikins said, "I found it enjoyable for what it was...". From watching Lucy trailers when it came out, I thought there would be more action, but no. It's more like a science fiction biography akin to what I saw with Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen. It was interesting but failed right away when Morgan Freeman spouts the very discredited "we only use 10% of our brains". You really can't build a premise on such a widely disclaimed statistic. I'll probably watch it again because Scarlett does such a good job.

I have nothing but admiration for Kristin Wiig and Bill Hader, who because they worked together for so long on SNL, are like siblings in real life. It carries over to The Skeleton Twins really well. I've heard before that tragedy plus time equals comedy and most comedians do create comedy from bad experience in their past or present. These 2 as brother and sister are the most suitable people for each other and reaching that conclusion is heartbreaking through their lifetime of depression. Here's a solid spoiler: if you're prone to bouts of depression, watching it for a couple hours has a tendency to bring you down. But yes, I'll most likely watch it again.

I've always said if I could get paid to watch movies I'd be a millionaire. Someone point me to THAT person, would ya?
