magic in the moonlight

A film by Woody Allen

Cast: Colin Firth, Emma Stone, Marcia Gay Harden

Stanley (Colin Firth) is a magician one of the greatest in Europe who spent his life to revealing fraudulent spiritualists. One of his friends invites him to a villa       in France to quickly uncover the truth behind celebrated spiritualist Sophie and her scheming mother who are a guest at the villa. However the more he spent time with her he begins to believe there is something on the other side and possibly an after life , without realizing that he is falling in love with her.

Yes Woody Allen is back with an other one he was in an interview in France and they told him that he was more appreciate in France than in his country and he replied you might be right about that one. That is weird because Jerry Lewis was loved in France like crazy but not in the states. Although the French actor Maurice Chevalier was loved in the United States nut not in France. Well Woody goes back to France to film Magic in the moonlight and let me tell you that the cinematography is outstanding as usual He didn’t miss a beat. It was near perfection. The film takes place In 1920 and Colin Firth incarnates the great Magician Stanley and does a great job at it. Okay he is world famous, no one outside of his closed circle of associates knows his real identity because on stage he is known as Wei Ling Soo, the Chinese magician. Colin Firth has some great lines and he delivers it perfectly well. He is a cynical and does not believe in the after life he thinks that spiritualist are a fraud and he knows that he is right. He does not seems to able to enjoy this great success that he is having. Brice tries to serenade Sophie with some corny song paying on his miniature guitar, he is in love with her immediacy. When we see Sopie (Emma Stone) for the first time you see the light hitting her face just right that gives her charisma and irresistible. Nice work form the light guy on this one on all the movie he has done a great job. Woody Allen is this great director but an awesome writer.

THE MIST (2007)

A film by Frank Darabont.
Cast: Thomas Jane, Marcia Gay Harden, Laurie Holden.
A violent storm hits a town in Maine, then an approaching cloud of mist appears the next morning. As the mist quickly envelops the area, a group of people get trapped in a local grocery store, among them, artist David Drayton and his five-year-old son. The people soon discover that within the mist lives numerous species of horrific, unworldly creatures that entered through an inter-dimensional rift, possibly caused by a project on a nearby military base. As the world around them turns into a literal Hell-on-earth, the horrified citizens try desperately to survive this apocalyptic disaster.

From the book of Steven King. Somekind of thing or things are in the mist. You see a bunch of people trapped in a grocery store. Of course they will argue religion and everything else that follows and they will try to get out of the store but something will come up like the all store will shake up or a bunch of insect will fly by the thousand around the store or some kind of creature will come up. There iare cliché in this film but who cares it is fun to watch what i like however is the end of the film. Well toward the end. Thomas Jane and Laura Holden which I love has done a great performance there. The film is well casted and works well. Enjoy!!!!
