#119 / Movie Reviews
Source Code and Limitless are new movies. They have both been playing in theaters in my town, and I saw them both, on succeeding days. I liked them both, and think they are worth seeing. In many ways, the movies are similar. "Scientific" advances at the borderlines of the possible (and the moral) drive the plots.
In the end, though, I thought Source Code was by far the "sweeter" of the movies. The main protagonist in Limitless finds a way to harness new chemistry for individual and personal advancement and gain. In Source Code, the ambition of the new science is to help solve problems that affect and afflict us all.
I continue to think that we're not alone in life. We are in it together.
