It has been three years since Now You See Me first came out but it feels like it has been more than a decade. I fondly remembered the original movie but I was ENTIRELY confused about everything I was seeing in this sequel.   578 more words

“Seriously, what the hell is wrong with you people?

The film begins strong with a promising line up of criminals who are crazier, creepier and have a much shorter shelf-life than the avengers –they do however seem to get on better than the avengers ever will. 463 more words
