And, yes, you'll need only a fraction of your noggin to take in Luc Besson's sci-fi actioner, but it's a kicky thrill ride that should ligh ...

Source: The Business Insider

The top box office hit this past weekend was Lucy, a sci-fi thriller starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman about a woman who learns to use 100% of her brain. It's a cool concept with a laughably outdated ending. (SPOILER ALERT: We're about to tell you what happens.

In the battle between two pervasive movie myths, audiences chose Lucy’s ludicrous take on the powers unleashed by using 100 percent of the human brain, leaving Hercules’ revisionist version of the Greek hero in second place.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
