Magic, is often said to be, the sleight of the hands. The pessimists reject it with utter disdain as they refuse to be amazed with cheap parlour tricks. That’s the deal with grown ups, they refuse to believe in. But have you ever seen a child’s eyes getting fascinated with the magic? It’s innocence shining in pure delight. Magic has that power over you. Be it a woman getting cut in half or a hidden rabbit in a hat, the glee of getting duped by a man with a bag full of tricks is matched to none. Cinema, which initially was thought of as a magical thing capable of beaming sight and sound on a screen, has often come up with stories of magic. Most of those stories have led to good magicmovies.
We, at the Cinemaholic, went through them and came up with some of the best movies about magic and magicians. Hop on the train as we go opening up the world of magic as Cinema sees it. Alohomora. Here is the list of top movies about magic and magicians of all time. You can watch some of these best magic movies on Netflix or Amazon Prime or Hulu.
10. Practical Magic (1998)
A family of witches suffers from a curse which does not allow them to fall in love, for it will kill their beloveds. Two sisters, who grow up to be Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman fight with all their might and magic against a supernatural force to destroy the curse. While the movie didn’t do very well due to various reasons such as poor direction and lazy writing, it still manages to entertain on the account of the performers, especially the insane aunts who bring the house down with their wry humour.
