In a summer of blockbusters, as it normally is, a movie quietly snuck up and took the big dogs, namely Will Smith, by surprise. “Now You See Me” is a twist on the bank robbery movie that is as fun as it is smart.
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literary classic “The Great Gatsby” has made its way back to the silver screen. In the most recent adaptation, prepare to be awed.
We are first introduced to Nick Callaway in a therapy session, recounting his time with Gatsby, the film set as a flashback. From here we also meet the flighty daisy, Nick’s cousin, and her wandering husband Tom, but Jay Gatsby is the character that eludes audiences. When he is finally introduced, it is to a backdrop of a wild party that makes one wistful to be a part of the madness.
