Even a middling Woody Allen movie is better than most, which is exactly the case with his 2014 release, Magic in the Moonlight. Following the heavy drama and acting clinic of Blue Jasmine, the iconic filmmaker dispenses with any notion that he's going to go on some mystical winning streak after 2011's Midnight in Paris. Allen never makes movies for critics and that has been made even more obvious with Magic, a 1928-set period piece that Ernst Lubitsch would have got a kick out of.
