  • The Prestige

    Looking forward to some real good acting and hopefully a good story: The Prestige with Caine, Bale, Johansson and Hugh Hackman.
    Any opinions yet (but no spoilers please)!

    Also "Babel" is on my list, by Alejandro Gonzلlez Iٌلrritu ("Amores Perros").

    This is a movie I would not mind watching, a friend told me about it a while ago but I had forgotten it untill I saw this thread. It sounds like an interesting story, maybe I should find and read the book first.

      A Freudian slip there, LE?

      Oh, and you forgot David Bowie, who plays a small but (apparently) pivotal role in The Prestige as inventor Nikola Telsa, and which has been described as "brilliant" by more than one viewer.
      _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
      _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
      _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
      _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

        The ending of the book is completely different from the movie. They would have had a seriously hard time trying to film it how it was written.
        Batman: It's a low neighborhood, full of rumpots. They're used to curious sights, which they attribute to alcoholic delusions.

        Robin: Gosh, drink is sure a filthy thing, isn't it? I'd rather be dead than unable to trust my own eyes!

          Thanks, friends. I have bookmarked the movie for watching it pronto. And if the book ends completely different, that's fine ... more fun then to read it.

            I'm actually sort of glad they're changing the ending in the movie...the book is fairly realistic until you reach the revelation.

              Okay, just watched this afternoon. The beginning is a bit confusing as you have to get used to two guys reading diaries of their respective antagonist, but soon it gets very exciting and suspense-loaded. I'm content.
