Review: Magic Mike

A male stripper teaches a younger performer how to party, pick up women, and make easy money.

I honestly thought this movie was a comedy with Channing Tatum. A bunch of guys stripping and making money, I thought there was a comedic element to it. I was wrong, this movie turned out to be pretty crappy and a waste of time, won’t be able to get my 1 hour and 50 minutes back. It gets one star for having the guy of White Collar in it.

Review: 21 Jump Street

A pair of underachieving cops are sent back to a local high school to blend in and bring down a synthetic drug ring. In high school, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) was a dork and Jenko (Channing Tatum) was the popular jock. After graduation, both of them joined the police force and ended up as partners riding bicycles in the city park. Since they are young and look like high school students, they are assigned to an undercover unit to infiltrate a drug ring that is supplying high school students synthetic drugs.

Its been a while since I have seen a movie thats this funny, and these two guys pulled it off. 21 Jump Street has nothing to do with the original show from the 90s with Johnny Depp. The only major similarity is that they are young looking cops who infiltrate a high-school and it ends about there, but Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum make for a very interesting comedic duo, which even surprised me with their combination. There are moments that my popcorn went flying because I was laughing so hard, almost choked on some popcorn too, they were ridiculous in this movie and I loved it. Even you haven’t seen it then you should, its worth it but some scenes are gonna get censored because of some of the crazy things they do so watch it at home if you can.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Trailer

I enjoyed the First G.I.Joe movie but this one looks even Better! Snake Eyes is still a bad ass, and I want that motorcycle with a machine gun installed on it. Then there is Dwayne Johnson or “The Rock” who plays Road Block in this part of G.I.Joe basically the big guy with the big guns, I do love these movies!

21 Jump Street – The Movie! Trailer

Based on the non-comedy television show that launched Johnny Depp, the comedy film stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as a mismatched pair of cops who join an undercover division that infiltrates a high school to crack down on a new drug. No word on whether Huggy Bear makes an appearance.

If anyone remembers this show, it was serious and it is what brought Johnny Depp to the top of the list and he was cool then just as cool as he is now. Now they are making a movie of it, and its just the concept of some guys who look too young to be cops and get thrown into a highschool to find out whats going and manage to do a few hilarious things on the way. Looks interesting, I for one am for sure going to watch it.

Review: Fighting

Movies such as these always tickle my interest, I always like watching these types of action flicks and I’m a fan of Channing Tatum. After watching the movie I was a bit disappointed, I was expecting some sort of Karate Kid/Mr.Miyagi type situation where he has to improve his skills one way or another but it wasn’t like that and the story just didn’t have the build up or the action that I expected. I liked the fight scenes but I something a little more, something with a different flavor that gets people worked up in the action.

Fighting: Trailer

Its not fight club but it is an interesting movie, Channing Tatum plays a guy out of money and luck, but he can throw a punch. Starting off with underground fights and rising to the top, the higher he goes the harder the fall. When there is organized underground fighting, there is money involved, lots of it. An action packed fighting movie, I’m looking forward to seeing this.
