I took my sis to Gold Class, and V—— fed her. It was her first time. It's fun to see someone so excited about the experience. We're a little jaded by exposure after making the rule that it's Gold Class or nothing. We saw Now You See Me. I hadn't read any reviews and the decision was based on the preview. It looked like it had potential in spades. So I was really disappointed when I found myself more interested in my mid-movie food than my actual movie. Not to say that there weren't amazing parts, and that the magic and spectacle wasn't, well spectacular. But. Before I go on, this may spoil it if you continue to read so stop here if you dont want to know any more. Okay to keep going? Alright. There were a few basic issues. Motivation. Resolution. Co-star. Why did the Four Horseman do it for no gain? It needed a modicum more clarity in the Eye and why it was enough motivation for them to do what they did. The ending was classic Deus ex Machina. For the easy Wikipedia explanation for those unaware, that is where the resolution of plot problems are suddenly explained 'with the contrived and unexpected intervention of some new event, character, ability, or object'. Bang, bang, bang they ply you with answers, stitch up the plot and leave you feeling mortifiedly disappointed. And the female interpol agent/co-star was limpid, vacuous and a pure love-interest where one was not required. She was a shameful female character. Whoo! Harsh much? Saying that, I mostly did enjoy it. It was visually pleasing and had a few laughs. If I didn't think its visual impact translates well on the big screen though, I would say wait for the little.
Who wore it better?
