The Prestige
Whoa..... I think it would be safe to say that anyone talking about this movie should us spoiler tags. On that note... ABRACADABRA...

Spoiler Did anyone else love, or even notice, how in the ads they make it look like Christian Bale's character is the 'real magic' man, when it turned out to be Hugh Jackman.

I liked it. I guessed a few of the twists and half guessed the others. It's not a great film, but a very good one. 7/10.

Oh, i'm so looking forward to seeing this one. It's probably the film i'm looking forward to seeing the most atm. Perfume is second on that list. I'll have to wait  until January 12th to see The Prestige in Sweden though. Sad

I thought this film looked good. A buddy of mine also said it was good, so I may check it out. The local movie reviewer on the news said this film was good, but he gave it the same rating that he gave another "mediocre" film, so go figure.

I liked this movie a lot and I loved the ending.

Spoiler I found it hard to follow at first until I got used to the way the story jumped back and forth in time. I thought the performances were good all around, though neither Bale nor Jackman played very likeable characters. I really liked the scenes between Jackman's Character and Tesla and how it played into the rivalry between Jackman and Bale. The twist ending was great even though there was a giveaway early in the film that I didn't pick up on. I like how these twist ending always seem so obvious when I look back at the movie when it's over.
