Article: Top Magic In Films

10.The Hobbit (2012 – 2014)

Long before Frodo Baggins made his arduous journey to Mordor, his brave uncle Bilbo embarked on an adventure for the ages. Truly epic and rather lengthy runtime but it never falter as Peter Jackson got the pacing just right, an all-star cast certainly bring some heavyweight to this majestic film and the visual is certainly out of this world. It is multi layered within the story and the whole film in whole is certainly spectacular, in this gorgeous looking film.

9.The Wizard Of Oz

Dorothy Gale is swept away from a farm in Kansas to a magical land of Oz in a tornado and embarks on a quest with her new friends, A upbeat musical that will capture people heart and I like the way it blended the black and white aspect to the colourful world, I personally love Over The Rainbow and it is a sense of wonder, with a cracking adventure type of film.

8.Stardust

In a countryside town bordering on a magical land, a young man makes a promise to his beloved that he’ll retrieve a fallen star by venturing into the magical realm. Well there is a lot of positive about this film, like with the chemistry with the two lead and also the cinematography that look amazing and overall this film is thoroughly entertaining from start to finish, it is a well-made film.

7.Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban

Harry Potter, Ron and Hermione return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for their third year of study, where they delve into the mystery surrounding an escaped prisoner who poses a dangerous threat to the young wizard. Of all the Harry Potter film this is the best one as it is much more superior than the other films, it also got the comedy aspect and it blended well with the scary moment in this film and that what made this one so good.

6.Doctor Strange

While on a journey of physical and spiritual healing, a brilliant neurosurgeon is drawn into the world of the mystic arts. If you must know I actually prefer this one as a standalone film than mixing in with The Avengers, at least this film is really different and truly unique also very inventive which I really like about it. This is the first superhero film which Benedict Cumberbatch star in and he is very likeable alongside with Rachel McAdams as both of them are really good, in an entertaining and thought-provoking film.

5.Narnia (2005 – 2010)

Four kids travel through a wardrobe to the land of Narnia and learn of their destiny to free it with the guidance of a mystical lion, the kids also go on numerous adventures to meet colourful characters along the way. I like the way this film balance with the war aspect with the colourful world with just the kids and that work really well, the acting is really good and the vocal talent really just work, in a timeless story that people can enjoy and this will become a cult classic.

4.Jumanji

When two kids find and play a magical board game, they release a man tapped in it for decades – and a host of dangers that can only be stopped by finishing the game. Robin Williams is magnificent as Alan Parrish and especially the kids in the film is superb, the CGI/SFX is outstanding and very realistic. It is an eye catching and with fabulous film that will drawn you in from start to finish.

3.Spirited Away

During her family’s move to the suburbs, a sullen 10-year-old girl wanders into a world ruled by gods, witches and spirits, and where humans are changed into beasts. Enchanted, poignancy and moving film that will bring you a dreamlike story. It is generally funny and the visual is out of this world and with great characters which made this so memorable, you actually care about with these characters and if you want something different, this is ideal for you.

2.Beauty & The Beast

A selfish prince is cursed to become a monster for the rest of his life, unless he learns to fall in love with a beautiful young woman he keeps prisoner. Majestic and beautifully film that will capture young love and it is eye catching, the two-lead got really good chemistry and with a all star cast that will give you goosebumps. The musical set piece is astonishing and with truly catchy tunes that you can’t get out of your head, in this attractive looking film that will capture your imagination and your heart.

1.Aladdin (1992)

A kind-hearted street urchin and a power – hungry Grand Vizier vie for a magic lamp that has the power to make their deepest wishes come true. The reason why I picked this film as my number one it is suitable for a family viewing as it is suitable for all ages, the musical aspect is outstanding and A Whole New World is so powerful and much better than the new version and don’t bother with the live action version of Aladdin, stick to this superior original version of Aladdin and Robin Williams is absolutely amazing, in a timeless and beautiful film.
