Is it every fanboy’s dream to actually meet an alien? If so, what do you do once you meet one? That is the dilemma that Clive Gollings (Nick Frost) and Graeme Willy (Simon Pegg) find themselves in. Paul has great fun for its protagonists trying to “let you in” on geek culture but it repeatedly falls flat, often going for the too easy and obvious joke.
We've heard the idea before: Liberation in the form of a tiny little pill. To quote a line from the film, "Don't wear matching suits next time guys - this isn't The Matrix." Director Neil Burger's new film Limitless is either intended to be a tongue-in-cheek wink to what it thinks is its target audience, or is just plain full of itself. Either way, Limitless is a fun 97 minute fairy tale adventure that's not much different than what we've seen before in this genre.

Watching the 1987 G.I. Joe animated film as an adult, I found the adulation of my childhood mainstay turned to laughter at the enthusiastic chant of “COBRA-LALALALAL!” The franchise itself is just that: an absurd comedy based within the politically correct inspired stereotyping and unabashed optimism of the 80s. Real American Hero #164 embraces that completely to make some escapist fun that isn't afraid to laugh at itself.
