The Prestige

has anybody else seen this??!?! what an amazing movie! in the middle of it, i got kind of confused and though the movie was just a waste of time, but when you figure it all out at the end it's so unbelieveable cool. the ending is so crazy that you have to watch the whole movie again to look for all the clues. fantastic

Pretty damn good.





Mostly because of David Bowie's Nikola Tesla. Like Jareth's musical numbers, Tesla gets precious little screen time.

The Prestige was indeed amazing, securing Christopher Nolan a firm spot in my top 3 directors list. It sincerely kept you guessing the entire time, and the revelations were simply out of this world.

Given Nolan's fantastic directorial skills, the a phenominal cast performance, The Prestige is surely one of the year's best films.

The Departed is still sitting pretty as #1 this year though, and I don't think anything's going to beat it. I still need to see Flags of Our Fathers yet.

It's very cool, Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale were excellent. I don't know if I got all of it

Yes, for all the reasons noted above, one of the best movies I've seen this year. I missed several clues during the movie that my wife picked up. It's always fun disecting the movie afterwards and hearing her perspective.

Definitely worth seeing in the theatres, early as possible too so nothing gets spoiled by idle chatter.

Just saw it last night. So far my second fav of the year (behind The Departed). Although I have missed a few movies that I may love, such as Little Miss Sunshine.

It's amazing. I loved it so much.

I'd even be willing to pay the $9 to see it again.

I completely agree . I figured out one of the twists very early on, but the execution of the reveal was great.

I'm going with my friends to see it next weekend.

Anything involving David Bowie will not disappoint me.

i watched it again today and figured out more of the mysteries. i tell you it's still a lot of fun the 2nd time around, but i was still envious of the people who were watching it for the first time. what a cool movie.
