Limitless and The Adjustment Bureau? What the heck? Aren’t those movies old? Well, yeah kinda. But we like them and this is our podcast so get over it. January is a little slim on new releases that we actually care about so we’re filling the space with things we liked that maybe flew under your radar.
These movie fall into a category we like to call “Medium Movies”. They’re movies that aren’t amazing, that no one expected to be amazing, but execute their stories well and are nice to look at. Not every movie has to be a blockbuster, and not every movie has to be a super deep indie tear jerker. Hollywood sort of forgot about this brand of movie, and a lot of the ones that do make it out go unseen.
We actually quite enjoy both Limitless and Adjustment Bureau, with AB taking the favorite spot. They’re just fun to watch and have pretty people in them and are easy to digest. Perfect movies to have around for when you’re doing chores or just want something decent on while you browse the internet.
For more on what these movies are about and a bit of a deeper dive into what they each bring to the table, pop an NZT and open your mind to today’s episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
