Day 213: Now You See Me….

Last fall there was a film called “Now You See Me.”

Even though it had some big stars and got good reviews, it could have been so much better.

For instance, replacing the featherless stars with stars who have feathers would have upped both the visual appeal and also the suspense level.

As well, instead of meeting in a dingy office building, the meeting place could have been held in a brightly colored nest (can we say “visual misdirection?”)

Plus, there’s no need for all those props when the most interesting illusion of all is the simple disappearance and reappearance of someone really pretty.

The star goes IN.
The (really pretty) master illusionist goes IN.
And promptly disappears.
And promptly disappears.
Now you see me....
Now you see me….
Now you don't.
Now you don’t.
Now you see me.....
And now you see me…..
Now you don't.
And now you don’t.

Here at the midpoint of the film, it would have made the plot much stronger to keep the props simple and continue the focus on the prettiness of the illusionist.

I'll come out and do some ribbon tricks now.
I look particularly pretty today, so I think I’ll come out and do some ribbon tricks now.
I'll start with a real crowd-pleaser - "grip the ribbon."
I’ll start with a real crowd-pleaser – “grip the ribbon (while looking very pretty).”
Fans also really like my "loop the loop" trick.
Fans also really like my “loop the loop (while looking really pretty)” trick.
Now I will perform my world-famous illusion trick - "Lion Bird."
Now I will perform my world-famous illusion trick – “(Very Pretty) Lion Bird.”
Okay, Mom, you can tell everyone they can take fan photos now.
