[film] Now You See Me
Saw Now You See Me last night at Six Forks Station Cinema. Now You See Me is a caper movie about grifter stage magicians: basically Ocean's Eleven, Leverage, and The Prestige all mixed together. Not quite as good as that makes it sound: it's a bit thin in spots. But the actor's performances are fun (notably Eisenberg, Ruffalo, Harrelson, and Fisher), the magic is cool in a David Copperfield way (he's listed in the closing credits as inspiring or some similar phrasing).

The closing credits music is dubstep with the London Philharmonic, and once I realized about fifteen seconds in I was hearing dubstep with a full symphony I admit disappointment they didn't use the timpani to drop the bass.

Overall: fun, recommended.

trailers:

Man of Steel - first trailer.

Star Trek: Into Darkness - New to me, think this may have been released after the film's release.
