The Illusionist and One Night With the King

My mom and I rented some movies today from Blockbuster since our satellite is down. One of the movie we rented is called the Illusionist. It is about a boy who meet this guy who was always into doing tricks. The man showed him many tricks and the boy became interested in doing tricks. He started doing tricks himself. He meet this girl and the became in love. Her family didn’t want her to have anything to do with him because he was a peasant and she was upperclass. They secretly decided to run away together but her father’s men found her and took her away. They never saw each other again that is until 15 years later. The boy grew up to do magic tricks and performed on stage in front of many people. The girl grew up to eventually date a prince and get engaged to him. They met when the prince and her went to see one of his performance. During one trick the prince volunteered her to do it because the magician needed a volunteer. When she came on stage he recognized her as the girl he fell in love with. She didn’t recognize him until later that evening after she had gone home after the show. She wrote him a letter asking him to meet her. They met and he asked her to come away with him. She said they couldn’t because the prince would hunt them down and kill them both. She told him that she did want to go away with him. He had a plan on how they were to escape together. They would secretly meet but one of the prince’s men always followed her and reported what they were doing. The magician would continue to perform on stage. One day the prince had a talk with his fiancee and she told him she wanted to leave him and go with the magician. He told her to go with him and announce their engagement but she said no and said she was leaving him and left. He followed after her into the barn and slit her throat with his sword. She died. The magician found her dead. The prince then kept trying to get him to stop performing and to have him arrested. They say he was the one who killed her. Later the one that always followed her tried to have the magician arrested during one of his performance but he vanished from the stage right in fron of everyone. The one who always followed the prince’s fiancee went back to the barn and found evidence that linked the prince to the murder. He went to talk to the prince about this but before he did he wrote a letter to the prince’s father telling him all about this. When he was speaking to the prince about him being the one to kill his fiancee the prince killed himself just as his father’s men came to arrest him. Later the one who always follows the prince’s fiancee goes looking for the magician and thought he saw someone that looked like him and followed him to the train station but loses him there and then remembers what he heard the magician saying to some old man about the old man to go ahead with the prince’s fiancee and he would follow along later realizes that the prince’s fiancee is stil lalive and that the magician is on the way to see her. They then show how the magician used illusion to trick everyone into thinking the prince’s fiancee is dead and that he killed her. What they showed was that the magician gave the prince’s fiancee something for her to put in the wine that would make her appear to be dead. She put in it in the wine that she drank before going to bed one night. She goes to talk to the prince and when she leaves him to go to the barn to get a horse he follows her. She knocks him unconscious, takes a gem from his sword puts it in the hay, leaves her locket in the hay, puts something on the sword to look like blood, and then puts something on her neck to make it look like it was slit and bleeding. She then screamed like he was killing her. She then rides the horse and makes it look like she was hurt. She then rides it to the river and falls asleep there in the water. The magician goes there pretending he was searching for here there after finding her house full of her blood. The prince comes and see’s her and thinks she is dead. After he leaves the magician puts something in her mouth and tries to put it down her throat. She then wakes up. She is not dead. She goes with the old man. Later everyone thinks she is dead. The prince thinks he killed her. It is a very good movie I recommend all to watch.

The other movie we saw was called One Night with the King. It is about a king who was married to a woman. He was having a party and wanted her to come to the party but she didn’t want to join the party so he had her banished from the castle. She was no longer to be queen. The king was to find a new queen. He ordered all single woman to be brought to him for him to pick his new queen. Meanwhile this guy was plotting to try to kill the king so that he could become king and his wife would be come queen. He also wanted to kill all Jews whether men, women, or children. The king falls in love with a Jew who he didn’t know was a Jew because she had changed her name and didn’t tell anyone she was a Jew. The king picked her as the new queen. She found out the guy was gonna kill the king and tried to have it stopped. She also found out he wanted all Jews killed and asked the king to let her allowall Jews not to be killed. He didn’t allow that. While the king was to be away he had the other guy who he trusted to take over. That guy was the one who wanted to kill him. She goes to take to him the same time he appointed the guy. She tells him that she is a Jew but he and the other guy doesn’t believe. She shows them the necklace her uncle gave her. If you hold it over a flame it shows the Jewish star of David. She held it over the flame for them. Afterwards the bad guy tried to strangle her. The king comes to her rescue because he believed her when she sad she was a Jew because he saw the star of David from the necklace. He orders the guy hung and she was able to save all Jews. Her uncle takes over the bad guy’s position. Also a very good movie and recommend all to watch.

Employee of the Month

Last night I watched the dvd of Employee of the Month. It is such a funny movie. For all those who hasn’t see it yet it stars Jessica Simpson, Dane Cook, and Dax Shepard. Dax Shepard is head cashier and has been employee of the month for the past 17 months. One more month and he gets a new car for free. Dane Cook is a box boy. Jessica Simpson is a new cashier who transferred from another store. Dane Cook finds out that Jessica Simpson only dates guys who are employee of the month. Dane Cook wants to date her so he is determined to become employee of the month. Dax Shepard wants to remain as employee of the month so that he can get his new car. Throughout the movie they are fighting to get a star because the one with the most stars becomes employee of the month.

Go see it if you haven’t already. Very funny.

Charllote’s Web and Alpha Dog

Today my mom and I went to see Charlotte’s Web. It is a great movie. For those who has not seen it yet it is about a girl named Fern (played by Dakota Fanning) who lives on a farm with many animals. There is this pig on the farm that had 11 baby pigs during the Spring. One of them was so small (called a rut) that Fern’s father considered killing. He is not strong enough and would be no use to anyone. Fern sees that her farther is gonna kill the pig and convinces him to let her take care of the pig. She feeds the pig, bathes it, takes it for walks in a crib, sleeps with it, and plays with it. One day her father tells her that the pig is too big and needs to be given away. Her mother tells them that Fern’s uncle, who lives down the road, has a farm and can take the pig.

Fern would go there almost every day to visit Wilbur (the pig). She would read with him and play with him. During the day Wilbur was always lonely and sad. He wanted to play but none of the other animals would play. The tell him they are too busy. All he wanted was to have a friend. Then one night he meets Charlotte (a spider) and she becomes his friend. The other animals tell Wilbur that every pig at the farm goes into the smoker to become meat to eat. They tell him he will never get to see snow. Wilbur is sad about this. Charlotte tells him that she will make sure that he gets to see snow. Fern finds out about this and decides to help Wilbur so that he would not be killed.

Charlotte decides to put a word on her web that would describe Wilbur. She comes up with Some Pig. Everyone in the area comes to see what the spider has written on her web. Fern’s uncle decides that there may be something to this pig. Later on he changes his mind. Charlotte than gets Templeton (a rat) to help find a new word. He goes to the junk yard and while there he finds the word terrific and brings it back to Charlotte who puts the word on her web. Everyone comes to see the new word. Meanwhile Fern learns about a fair at school where you can bring different animals and have them judged and winners get a ribbon. She thinks that if her uncle enters Wilbur in a contest and he wins he will not kill Wilbur. She makes copies of the flier and posts the all over her uncle’s farm. Her uncle finds one and decides to enter Wilbur.

Wilbur is at the fair and so is Templeton and Charlotte. Charlotte decides to put another word on her web so that Wilbur will have a better chance of being chosen. Charlotte asks Templeton to find a word. He goes and comes back with the word humble. The whole family comes to see Wilbur the morning of the judging and finds the blue, first prize is already given to the other pig. Then everyone at the fair sees the word. Just then someone comes to tell Fern’s uncle that he is to go someplace and the pig is too go also. They get the to that place in the fair and finds out that Wilbur gets a medal. Fern’s uncle then decides not to kill Wilbur. Charlotte gives birth to a sac full of 514 spiders and dies at the fair. Wilbur brings the sac back to the farm. All the animals takes turn watching the sac until one day all the spiders come out. All the spiders leave except 3 spiders who become Wilbur’s new friend. He tells them all about their mother.

It is a good movie and I recommend all to watch it if you haven’t already done so.

told everyone previously that I am a huge Justin Timberlake fan and that I am obsessed with him and this time I want to tell all about Alpha Dog. It is a movie featuring Justin Timberlake. He plays the friend of a drug dealer who is told by his friend to kidnap a kid as a ransom. It is out in theaters on January 12 so all Justin fans should go see it this weekend. I know I will. I won’t miss it for the world.
