I highly recommend the movie The Prestige, if only for the star-studded cast: Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Michael Crane, Piper Perabo, Scarlett Johansson, David Bowie, and Andy Serkis. I recently saw Andy Serkis in Longford, and he’s slated to appear in several more upcoming movies. It’s sort of become a Where’s Waldo? fascination of mine to spot him in other movies since LOTR. Who in the world thought of pairing Andy Serkis and David Bowie as the “mad scientists” in the secluded forest? How cool is that? How could you not enjoy a movie about magicians, even if it follows closely on the heels of The Illusionist (I’m also a big Edward Norton fan). I also enjoyed the movie for the amazing plot twists. It’s definately worth adding to your Blockbuster queue.
