In a departure from our usual format, we compare two movies–2006’s The Illusionist and The Prestige–that are both well reviewed. They are also similar in other ways, what with the Victorian-era magic. Of course, we can’t discuss too many good movies. This is a bad movie podcast, which is to say, a podcast where we discuss bad movies. If people hear that we are a “bad movie podcast” and see that many of our movies are well regarded, they will assume that we are a bad . . . movie podcast. And we don’t want that.
