    Limitless

    ★★

    For a film titled Limitless, it really is short sighted in its imagination. A super smart pill capable of unlocking the brain's full potential and the best the writers can come with is making a killing in the stock market, becoming a wunderkind in the world of business takeovers, going to elite parties and beaches across the globe and getting mixed up with the Russian mafia. Oh, throw in a completely pointless and unnecessary murder mystery side plot to throw…

    This otherwise brilliantly funny film's huge downfall is too many too long scenes of Favs and Vaughn improvising arguments and yelling at each other. Taken that aside, it's a great sister film to the duo's earlier Swingers and stands on its own as a great low key under the radar crime comedy.

    Carlito's Way

    ★★★★★

    I haven't sat down to watch this in probably 20 years so it was like watching it for the first time. Completely blew my hair back. Of course, one can't help but conjure up De Palma's and Pacino's earlier Scarface while watching, but this film does so much more. Scarface is a cartoon with a wicked score. Carlito's Way really takes you by the gut in all things, from De Palma's outdoing himself direction to the fantastic Bernhard Hermann inspired score to the lead actor's performances. I won't dare let another 2 decades go by before revisiting this masterpiece.
