Broadsheet Trailer Park: Magic In The Moonlight



What you may need to know:

1. Under the pseudonym of Wei Ling Soo, Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth) is the most celebrated magician of his age. He embarks on a mission to the Côte d’Azur to debunk the clairvoyant Sophie Baker (Emma Stone).

2. Holy crappy Photoshop Batman! Colin Firth must hold the record for actor appearing in movies with the worst …postersever. It must be written into his contract.

3. Woody Allen is the Prince of filmmaking. Since What’s Up, Tiger Lily (1966) the prolific 78-year-old has delivered a new movie almost every year. Magic in the Moonlight is the 46th movie that he has written and directed.

4. Still, not the greatest foster parent ever.

5. After last year’s phenomenal Blue Jasmine, Magic in the Moonlight has been getting mediocre reviews. But hey, with a workload like Allen’s, you can’t expect them all to be hits.

6. Annie Hall (1977) is usually cited as the pinnacle of his “early funny ones,” but if you haven’t seen Take the Money and Run (1969), do yourself a favour.

7. Broadsheet Prognosis: More Paul Daniels than David Blaine.

Release Date: 19th September

    I’d like to add woody Allen is one of the worst film makers of all time and just makes crap for sudo intellectuals but makes nothing of any real worth. P.S. Annie hall is one of the worst pieces of crap I’ve ever seen.

            I know a lot of people like it, I just think it’s highly over rated, boring, unfunny and woody Allen is really annoying.

            “You know, I like his films, except for that nervous fellow that’s always in them…”

            I don’t know enough about the technical end of movies to say with authority whether he’s overrated or not, but to call him one of the worst directors of all time is nonsense.
            Also, I’m loath to point out spelling mistakes, but it’s “pseudointellectual”…

      It’s not for everyone. I’d put love and death as one of the funniest films ever made, personally. And Annie hall and Bananas, and Sleeper, and take the money and run. Even everything you’ve ever wanted to know about sex etc. But other than that..a complete hack.
