Television commercials on new releases are enough to entice tens of millions of movie lovers who run off to the movie theatres to watch those movies. The minimalist music from Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield, which builds slowly and inevitably like the movie, was not originally composed with horror in thoughts, however just a few bars of the theme can elevate the hairs on the again of your neck. What I’ve tried to do is collate an inventory of movies that feature movies which have magical themes or very obvious magical references in them.

His film centres round, and completely captures, a neighborhood bar full of colourful eccentrics who can not seem to transfer on. Additionally starring Anthony LePaglia, Samuel L.

McKellenÂ´s first entry into the general public consciousness of pop culture, he would play Magneto in 4 successive movies, his successor Michael Fassbender modelling his accent on a tutorial McKellen gave on Â´Macbeth ‘in 1979. Lauded when staged for the Royal Nationwide Theatre, McKellen and director Richard Loncraine re-adapted it for the massive display screen (both acquired writing credit for his or her work alongside the bard).
