Easy Magic Tricks: The Film Prediction
Here's a fun and easy magic trick, a prediction, which could maybe win an Academy Award or Oscar. You ask several people, say six individuals, to each name their favorite movie.

As each spectator names a movie, you write the title on a slip of paper, fold the paper and throw it into a hat, ashtray, glass, jar or other container. After writing down the titles, you write the name of one of the films on a final slip and set the prediction in plain view or have a spectator hold it.

Another spectator is asked to reach into the hat and randomly pulls out a movie title, which is read aloud. When your prediction is opened and read, it turns out to be the very same film.
