Shady's Movie Reveiw
I used to go to the movies all the time. I mean, I would see everything, even the crappy ones. But lately, I don't want to waste my evening watching something I know I'm not going to enjoy. So, when I saw the preview for the Illusionist, I was definitely interested. Except that when I got there, the movie I thought I was going to see wasn't the movie I saw. I confused The Illusionist starring Pig-Vomit and Jessica Beil (mmmmm) with The Prestige, starring Batman and Wolverine. Yea, two different magician movies. Oops. My Mistake.
But it was still a cool movie. Here is a non-spoiler synopsis:
Eisenheim (Edward Norton) is a stage magician who amazes the audiences of turn-of-the-century Vienna, drawing the attention of Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell). When the Prince's intended, Sophie von Teschen (Jessica Biel), assists the magician onstage, Eisenheim and Sophie recognize each other from their childhoods -- and a dormant love affair is rekindled. As the clandestine romance continues, Chief Inspector Uhl (Paul Giamatti) is charged by Leopold to expose Eisenheim, and Eisenheim prepares to execute his greatest illusion yet.So, if you want to see a pretty good movie, check out The Illusionist.
