Limitless (PG-13)

★★★☆☆

In this speedy thrill ride, Bradley Cooper plays underachiever Eddie, whose luck changes when he takes NZT, a drug that allows him to use his full potential. Eddie must scramble to procure more doses, as he becomes a Wall Street wiz, wins back his girlfriend and achieves his dreams. Limitless isn’t a perfect sci-fi thriller, but it strikes an ecstatic chord of premonition. And it gives you a fleeting sense of what it might be like to be the smartest person in the world.

Paul (R)

A disappointment from start to finish, Greg Mottola’s alien spoof comedy is dead on arrival. Two genial Brits, Clive (Nick Frost) and Greame (Simon Pegg) go on holiday in America and meet Paul, a textbook alien (performed in motion-capture by Seth Rogen) who has just escaped a secret imprisonment on Earth. The friends try to deliver Paul to his “people.” The comedy perks up when the trio meets a cute but naive creationist (Kristen Wiig).
