-ed it and see that it gets really good reviews...was I watching a different film???
I really liked this one, which is weird, because I'm usually not a huge Will Ferrell fan. I thought it was a great idea for a movie.
Also watched Hugh Jackman and Michael Caine in The Prestige, which felt like it took a long time to get to its twist-at-the-end and the payoff wasnt worth the wait...although admittedly I was pretty damn tired by this time. edit - btw, I am no real Scarlett fan, but she is smoking in period-wear, and looks amazing in The Presitige
I liked The Prestige as well, and I thought that there was maybe TOO MUCH plot twisting thrown into the movie. I thought that if anything, they tried to cram too much in and made the movie too convoluted. I figured out the twist at the end about 30 minutes into the movie, and it still didn't ruin it for me. I think though, that if you go back and watch the movie again, you might see a bunch of extra stuff. The movie really isn't about magic at all.
Oh, and Scarlett DID look ridiculously hot.
