There’s a point early on in Lucy when the Adam to her Eve, a dimwitted club kid who puts her in harm’s way and starts her off on her moronic adventure, informs Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) that hers is the name of the first known woman. In case we don’t get his point, Luc Besson, the intellectual vacuum that expelled Lucy from its emptiness and into the world, cuts to a museum where we can see a replica of the evolutionary throwback that his mouth-breathing mouthpiece intends. I assume this is some kind of sleight-of-hand, since this is not the Lucy that the movie really brings to mind. Rather, she is Lucy Van Pelt from Peanuts, and this flick is Besson’s latest cinematic football just waiting to be yanked out of our eager paths.
—  The lede to confessions123midi’s July review of Lucy. I love intellectual/critically informed snark like this.

Bud Cort took a few minutes to chat with DVDTalk about his role as a “bond company stooge” in Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, which is now out on DVD. The actor discussed his love for the sea, a break-in at his Italian hotel room, and his few (very few) career regrets. And, despite our best attempts to avoid questions surrounding it, any interview with Cort eventually leads us back to his most well-known movie, Harold and Maude.
