Magic in the Moonlight 
Stanley: "Her smile is rather winning".
3/4 stars

Sophie: "More Mystery, More Magic".

The story is about a spiritual medium may or may not be conning wealthy families and a Englishman, and magician, will stop at nothing to uncover the truth - though he doesn't realize just how it will affect both his personal and professional life.

To me Woody Allen is 50/50, sometimes he can direct and write great movies with a lot of details into, but at times he can direct and write not so good films, not terrible, just a bit weak. Magic in the Moonlight can be reviewed in many different ways for some people. The movie can suck the auditions in by it's story,writing and the films atmosphere, or people are not looking for good story or good writing, just something to entertain them, well this has some of the good, and some of the bad.

Colin Firth and Emma Stone both of give it their all and in this movie it's shows, because both of them were really good in this movie. The sets looked good, the writing at times can really clever and really fresh. The movie looks really good and the cinematography is stunning to watch.

The character's in the movie are cardboard cut out of Woody's other films and the story itself isn't all that interesting. Woody Allen really likes recycling character's and locations, because most of his films he uses the same character's and as I said locations for his movies like: Colin Firths character in the movie is rude, selfish and hard to live with, just like Cate Blanchett character in Blue Jasmine, or what about the city of pairs, that's been use a lot in his other films.

Overall Magic in the Moonlight can be slow with it's dragging plot and uninteresting character's, but the film dose have great shot and fantastic acting from Colin Firth and Emma Stone.
