Yesterday, Lindsay and I went to see Limitless. The premise promised a mindbending, nerve invigorating movie. Conceptually, it rocked.
But the execution didn’t deliver. The pacing felt slow and I wasn’t that invested in any of the characters.
I think this would’ve been better as a book, where you experience every second of the drug in his system. Maybe I should check out the book it’s based upon, The Dark Fields, by Alan Glynn.
Bradley Cooper, Abbie Cornish, and Robert De Niro turned out good performances.
But I just wasn’t hooked by this movie.
Maybe I had high expectations based on the previews, but I walked out feeling un-satiated.
However, Lindsay did introduce me to a nice theater with five dollar Tuesdays. And I got to spend time with one of my oldest friends and chat about the movie afterwards.
Unfortunately, we ended up at Sam the Clams, where we usually have great food, but this time we didn’t. We ordered the New England clam chowder, but they were sold out.
So we opted for a lobster bisque. Bad decision. The bisque, if you can call it that, was gritty and congealed. There were literally pools of oil floating on top of the bisque. And it didn’t taste good either.
Then I ordered the lobster roll and spent the next 30 minutes chewing until my jaw ached because the lobster was over boiled.
This is the third Tuesday we’ve gone out and it’s been raining. Maybe mother nature is telling us to switch our girl’s day out to another day.
