55 Movies to Get You to Christmas – #50

Now You See Me
“First rule of magic: always be the smartest person in the room.”


    I’ve had a hard time putting my finger on what it is in certain movies that grabs ahold of something inside of me and sticks like thick superglue.  From the first time I saw Now You See Me, I was super excited about it.  It’s SO GOOD, you guys.  Let me give you some reasons.
    First of all, the acting is flawless.  In case you missed the trailer, this movie features Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, and Morgan Freeman.  So those guys are all really good actors, right? The camera work is fantastic.  The scenery is gorgeous and fully utilized in action sequences.  The fight choreography was gorgeous and intriguing.  I love pretty much everything about this movie, and no poorly thought out last second blog entry on Christmas Eve could fully emphasize how worthwhile this film is.  GO WATCH.  GO.
