DVD: The Prestige

This weekend it was Brandy’s turn to pick the movie. She’d picked “The Prestige” which I had never heard of. It is set in the early 1900’s and centers around the rivalry of a couple of magicians. From the beginning I liked the inside look at magic. That was fun. And then they started talking about Tesla and a little latter he actually appeared as a character.

In any case, there were many twists and turns and it definitely kept my attention. I’d talk more about some of the specific items, as I definitely have opinions on them, but for anybody who hasn’t seen the film (or perhaps read the book) that would just be spoiler after spoiler. So I shall refrain.

Suffice it to say, I really enjoyed this movie. It was well executed and it explored some interesting ideas. It was worth the watch for sure. This is one of the rare movies I’d actually consider watching a second time just to see if I would catch things I didn’t catch the first time around. I probably won’t actually do that, but I’d CONSIDER it. :-)
