Now You See Me 2.

Less coherent and focused than the first one. Daniel Radcliffe doesn't really work out as a semi-psychotic villain. The chip/card passing scene was somewhat overdone ... on the upside the new girl Lizzy Caplan was good and there were some very nice effects and visual imagery.

The Proud Challenge (1962) Hokori takaki chosen

Wall to wall stylishness and excellence with this slick 1960's Japanese noir. Very cine-literate and playful with it. A tour de force of technique and a great soundtrack to boot.
