A Magical Movie Weekend

English writer Thomas Dekker believed, “The world, after all our science and sciences, is still a miracle; wonderful, inscrutable, magical and more, to whosoever will think of it.”
What did you think of our movie selections this weekend? For some, it was an illuminating weekend of storytelling, filled with magic and sci-fi wonder. The car chasers once again traveled at a Fast & Furious 6 speed, passing the magical and scientific among us on the way to first place at the North American box office, where $34.5 million was waiting at the finish line. The magicians with mischief on their minds were shouting Now You See Me from the enchanting #2 spot, stealing $28.5 million in box office bucks. After Earth was destroyed, and the big-budget film failed to bring in blockbuster numbers, the third planet from the sun was safely restored to the disappointing, but earthbound #3 spot with $27 million. Animation continued in Epic fashion as the little people in the big forest battled the forces of good (reviews) and evil (box-office banishment) all the way to the #4 spot with $16.4 million. The cute but strangely attired team that soared alongside the Star Trek Into Darkness found bright light and a tie for the #4 spot with the even cuter animated, aforementioned crew with $16.4 starry million.
Our movie world, in all its miraculous wonder, provided us with fast cars and false impressions, joy rides and journeys of the colorful kind, star tripping and a giant helping of science fiction. Science and the supernatural traveled neck-and-neck along Hollywood Boulevard, with the demolition derby claiming the top prize.
From seaside days to starry nights, the week ahead promises to supply movie magic for the most discerning viewer…
