Maybe there's a reason I haven't even seen a trailer for it yet...
Like I would. I want to see BALE and WOLVERINE smack down in the other magic movie. The only two guys I'd go all George Takei for.
Oh Jesus God tell me about it. It's like someone climbed inside my brain and wrote down what I think every night before bed. I am counting the days til that sucker comes out.
To which Illusionist are you referring? "The Illusionist"? or "The Illusionist"?
I'm not sure what it is you're telling me . . .
THANK YOU for telling me. but i also had a definite sense that The Prestige is going to be SO MUCH BETTER than that looked. holding out for yummy christian bale.
is that a movie?
So, Sarah, wanna go see "The Illusionist" next weekend?
Ah, reverse psychology. I shall go see "The Illusionist" forthwith.
Besides, David Bowie is in The Prestige. I haven't been this excited about a David Bowie appearance since The Labyrinth.
So you wouldn't agree with "The pleasure of The Illusionist lies in its luxuriant belief in old-fashioned verities like character and storytelling; it's as thin as a sheet of marbled endpaper and as cleanly crafted." (Boston Globe) ?
Not only was it boring, but the twists weren't even twisty! They were superficially twisty. I appreciate this post because I just took a screengrab of it and emailed it to everyone who disagreed with me. Something about the black, white and repetition just make it work.
Thanks. Paul Giamatti isn't having a good year. Or am I wrong about "Lady in the Water"? I avoided that too.
Ohhhhh, Sarah. I should've told you that I saw the trailer and that movie looked hella boring. I would have put money on it: "Five million dollars says The Illusionist is hella boring."
HeadOn: apply directly to the forehead.
wait, i think i might have to write this down...
Timely! We were going tonight. Hmm, any thoughts on Talladega Nights?
Aww, that makes me sad. Cuz one of my favorite books ever is by Steven Millhauser (Edwin Mullhouse: The Life and Death of an American Writer 1943-1954 by Jeffrey Cartwright). But then again, the one he won the Pulitzer for (Martin Dressler) didn't do anything for me at all.
And, for what it's worth, Little Miss Sunshine is fun for the whole family.
Sarah Brown, you really should learn to form an opinion!
Little Miss Sunshine is fun for the whole family, unless your family includes any non-adults, in which case it is maybe not for the whole family.
Talladega Nights is the best racecar movie featuring a cougar named Karen that I have ever seen.
But should I go see "The Illusionist?" Honestly, I wish you bloggers would stop beating around the bush and tell me what you really think.
But that theater at BAM is kinda cool!
Aww, crap. Really? I had it all planned out. The Illussionist, Little Miss Sunshine, The Fountain and The Prestige Thingy. I never see movies in the theatre. Closing my eyes more entertaining anyway. Kevynn smash!
OhthankGOD I found this b/c I could NOT remember for the life of me where I had heard NOT to see this movie......Now it all makes sense....whew
Huh. I actually liked that movie, but perhaps my judgment is impaired by my inability to not appreciate any opportunity to go on a date while someone else watches our kids.
Still, I thought it was a good flick.
