...and I can highly recommend it. Did any of you see this one yet? And are any inmates having a soft spot for magic tricks? I love to do cardtricks, but they lost most of its magic by the introduction of a website called youtube

Yep, I've seen it (a few times, in fact--once in the cinema and a time or so on DVD). Enjoyed it, too. Have you seen The Illusionist with Edward Norton? That's another magic film, but it has a very different mood and a very different premise. I enjoyed The Prestige more, but I won't say why because I wouldn't want to ruin either film for anyone who hasn't seen them already.

But I do have a soft spot, not necessarily for magic tricks, but for magic in general. You know, the whole mystery and wonder thing.

saw it a while back, not a bad movie. Hugh Jackman kind of annoyed me in it though for some reason, but it did have Scarlett Johansson

speaking of movies, I saw Smoking Aces yesterday. If you like gangster type movies with a nice little twist, check it out.

I enjoyed the Prestige and the Illusionist very much.

Smoking aces was really lame, sorry CPrompt. Overdone cliches done in a failed attempt at an overdone style...

I also preferred The Prestige to The Illusionist, but they're both fairly good films. Christian Bale is proving to be one diverse actor.

Also no offense to CPrompt, but I avoided Smoking Aces for precisely the reason DL mentioned--it just looked like one cliche after another. And it probably doesn't hurt that gangster flicks are a staple of Korean cinema, despite the fact that 99% of them are horrific fare. A gangster flick is going to have be done very well to get my attention.

My wife is a big fan of Christian Bale. I think he's number two on her list of boyfriends (number one being... wait for it... Orlando Bloom). I don't mind because I think he's a pretty good actor. Thanks to my wife I've seen a number of his films, and I think he's got some chops.

I forget if it was a trailer or a poster or what, but I noticed that before I saw the movie

The Prestige was good; excellent acting. However, I preferred The Illusionist. I thought Edward Norton was marvelous in his role, and that the storytelling element felt stronger.

Bowie is a great actor! He's done quite a few cameos and film roles over the years.
