Lucy movie review, Themes and Memes ep13

Another transhuman themed film is reviewed here by Adam and Aaron on the Themes and Memes podcast. Recently we saw Johnny Depp in a starring role and now we have Scarlett Johansson playing the lead role. Not unlike Transcendence, Lucy fails as a film, but at least it has sex appeal. It also has an abundance of occult symbolism crammed in for people to think about alongside all of the transhumanist memes.
