In honor of The Prestige...

My favorite Hugh Jackman films...
  1. The Prestige
  2. The Fountain
  3. X2 (major drop in quality after this one)
  4. X-Men
  5. X-Men: The Last Stand 
My favorite Christian Bale films...
  1.  The Dark Knight
  2. The Prestige
  3. 3:10 to Yuma
  4. Batman Begins
  5. Henry V
    American Psycho
    doesn't make the cut.  I'd like to see I'm Not There.
My favorite Michael Caine films...
  1. The Dark Knight
  2. The Prestige
  3. Deathtrap
  4. Children of Men
  5. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
    Hell of a list of Batman Begins doesn't make it on.  And I need to see Victory.
My favorite Scarlett Johansson films
  1. The Prestige
  2. Lost in Translation (Tough call between #1 & #2)
  3. The Spongebob Squarepants Movie
  4. Ghost World
  5. The Island (This film is horrible, but at least it's better than Match Point.)
    Hell, I was tempted to put Iron Man 2 in here at #3 just because of the anticipation, but Jeff Bridges story about #1 soured me a bit.

My favorite Christopher Nolan films
  1. The Dark Knight
  2. The Prestige
  3. Batman Begins
  4. Memento
  5. Um...Inception just because it looks cool?

If you are a big Scarlett fan, I really liked Vicky Christina Barcelona. She wasn't as phenomenal in it, but Penelope Cruz was hilarious.

I've heard good things, but it was a Woody Allen film, and Match Point was so awful...so horribly awful.

You promise me VCB was far better than that?

Hmm I would say it was definitely better than Match Point. But judging by your dislike of it, that probably wouldn't be hard. I would recommend it for Penelope Cruz and Rebecca Hall who were both amazing in it. Scarlett didn't blow my mind but she was entertaining. I give it a thumbs up, and you can blame me if you hate it.
