We saw it!!!!!!!!
The good news is this is one of the greatest, if not the greatest heist movie ever!!
And now for the bad news,
The photography buzzes and blurs through the New Orleans and New York scene and as far as I could tell, no extras had any focus shots at all.
No pink umbrellas in any shot and the rain shot is the first scene of the movie, it was all a blur, Jazzy Fosho was there though, first scene, New Orleans.
There was no pausing for any of this.
The movie runs at a fast pace with loads of action and death defying stunts.
Our favorite surprise is when rapper Common shows up.
Who knew he could do comedy!
NO SPOILER ALERT NECESSARY BECAUSE WE’RE NOT TELLING. THIS IS A MUST SEE FILM, GO SEE IT NOW.
Morgan Freeman behind the scenes in ‘Now You See Me’.
What movie could go wrong with having Morgan Freeman narrate. A brilliant stroke of genius casting him as the debunker.
the Four Horsemen on stage in ‘Now You See Me’
The four flashy horsemen and the plot.
You can try to follow the plot and you still won’t figure it out until they want to reveal it and they do because they must because it’s never a good show until the audience is in on it.
That’s why soap operas are so popular. Usually the audience is in on something one or more of the characters is not in on.
Oh I’m sorry. Is this too old school for you?
But you’ll never be in or on this plot until they want you to be.
I can’t wait to see a second round. I wonder if knowing the outcome will make it a funner movie but I can tell you all the dvd is going in my collection.
I particularly like Jesse Eisenberg in this role. He was cast perfectly and is totally believable that he has the kind of focus required to play a Magician of this Caliber.
Ah, now that is something I can talk about,
The Eye of Horus.
I’ll admit I am not totally up on all my studies in the Egyptian deities, but I know Hermes and Horus were gods. Ye Gods. It probably all has to do with those aliens living on the Peruvian mountains or the other ones that have taken up residency in the waters,
I don’t know where they are but I know they are called USO’s.
I used to date this guy who is currently a MUFON.
Keep Austin Weird and this movie is weird, so go see it.
See, there goes that spoiler alert thing, so I can’t tell you about the carousel.
Or the plot leading us to the carousel.
But I can research this ‘ Eye of Horus’ thing. Our resident lesbian says to start with Hermes. She said that would be a really smart place to start.
The movie describes ‘the Eye of Horus’ as being a class of magicians in Egypt who used slight of hand and illusion to steal from the tables of the Kings to give to the poor, an Egyptian Robin Hood theme and that fits our horsemen perfectly.
It’s a dark movie with dark photography and I saw it in a dark theater.
So should you.
