Since I’m still up and it’s fresh on my my, I might as well write a "review" for this movie.
This movie is fille to the brim with pimp. Actually, the cup overflowith with the stuff. Shortly after finishing up work my boss told me that it was based on a short story, then went on to "spoil" the movie for me. He in fact did nothing of the sort. I guess soemthing happens in the short story where one of the dudes dies.
Oh, did I just spoil it for you too? No, I didn’t. It’s like the first scene in the movie. After that there a somewhat slow, but entertaining build up and characters and stuff. During these parts they show how some of the old school magic tricks were really performed. I nice history lesson in magic.
One thing I really like about the movie was an appearance by the grand wizard of all things electronical TESLA. It’s strange how so many people know about Thomas Edison and so few TESLA (<– Grand Wizard Nnja PIMP!) I guess that’s just how things go sometimes. People that really know what time of day it is know who TESLA is 😉 (Nikola Tesla Wikipedia Entry)
Anyhoo, Tesla’s up in there doing his pimp thang up in the mountains (where grand wizards are generally known to kick it.)
So the story starts from the end and moves forward through the narration of one guys diary, who’s diary is based off breaking the code of the other dude’s diary. Sound confusing? Good. Go see the movie. You don’t really need to read a review of it. It’s fucking fresh. Everyone is saying it’s fresh. What the fuck are you doing reading this shit?!?
OH, and there are MAD hats in that movie. Top hats even.
