Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Just finished "Now You See Me": disappointing

First hour was pretty good, but then it just got lame. Got really lame in last 20 mins and ending was obvious and poor. Should have guessed as much with Mark Ruffalo as a lead.

I thought that with Michael Caine (hasn't done anything decent in 20 years: batman role was lame) and Morgan Freeman (also don't recall anything decent he's done in a long while - just topping up retirement coffers as far as I can telll) it would be OK. The dude from the facebook movie was in it too: should have been a warning sign too. Not one of Woody Harrelson's best roles either.

Some real dodgy car special effects. Ironically the crash was one of the better ones. The scene in France was bad green screen and what look like a really badly painted, 2D backdrop.

Musical score was a total rip off of the Italian Job (new version with Mark Wahlberg, et al - original UK version was one of Caine's good roles).

Bottom line: OK rental. Don't bother buying.

Oh, I love that version. Nigel Williamson (think that is his name) was a great Merlin...

Production will start very soon for part 2.

Watched World War Z. Not bad I definitely thought it was worth watching. Had some scenes where I "didnt see that coming." Overall I liked the money.

Red. Hard to believe that I have owned this blu-ray for well over a year and had yet to watch it. Loved it!
