Magic Mike Xxl – The Review

If it’s Summertime at the cinema, then it’s sequel time once again! Hey, it was just a couple of days ago when that foul-mouthed toy returned in Ted 2. A few weeks ago another entry in the scare series arrived with Insidious 3. And this all really began on the first of May when those mighty Marvel movie heroes reunited to take down Ultron, while another team, the singin’ Bellas, headed back to the multiplex a couple of weeks later in Pitch Perfect 2. And now movie fans are treated to another epic return gathering of several big screen icons. But this titanic team appeals to a slightly more mature demographic, hence the truly earned “R” rating. Unlike Tony Stark’s crew, these bigger-than-life beef cakes aren’t using their talents against lethal robots. The power of pleasure provides the energy, and propels the plot, in Magic Mike Xxl.

Bogart and the Stuff That Both Dreams and Nightmares Are Made Of

Humphrey Bogart movies: ‘The Maltese Falcon,’ ‘High Sierra’ (Image: Most famous Humphrey Bogart quote: ‘The stuff that dreams are made of’ from ‘The Maltese Falcon’) (See previous post: “Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall Movies.”) Besides 1948, 1941 was another great year for Humphrey Bogart — one also featuring a movie with the word “Sierra” in the title. Indeed, that was when Bogart became a major star thanks to Raoul Walsh’s High Sierra and John Huston’s The Maltese Falcon. In the former, Bogart plays an ex-con who falls in love with top-billed Ida Lupino — though both are outacted by ingénue-with-a-heart-of-tin Joan Leslie. In the latter, Bogart plays Dashiel Hammett’s private detective Sam Spade, trying to discover the fate of the titular object; along the way, he is outacted by just about every other cast member, from Mary Astor’s is-she-for-real dame-in-distress to Best Supporting Actor Academy Award nominee Sydney Greenstreet.

Batman Incorporated #10 Review – Grant Morrison and Chris Burnham

Batman Incorporated is over – or at least the organisation is. We’re 3 issues away from the finale in July but issue #10, “Gotham’s Most Wanted”, sees Batman Inc. in ruins with Batman no longer welcome in Gotham and being actively pursued by the Gcpd. Meanwhile, Talia prepares for the final showdown with a righteously furious Dark Knight, and Nightwing, Red Robin, Ranger and Knight search for Wingman who’s being held captive by unknown forces. And Bruce? Bruce decides to take an all-or-nothing approach in his all-out assault on Leviathan – and it is Epic.

DC’s Wtf covers have been utterly nonsensical and pointless for the most part but the one Chris Burnham did for this issue actually ties into what happens in the comic – a feat unto itself! The tag is “He will become a creature of the night… he shall become a Bat!” so it’s no surprise

Tatum: Nothing will be 'worse' than stripping

Channing Tatum doesn't think anything in his life will ever be as embarrassing as when he was a stripper. The 32-year-old star plays stripper Michael Lane in his latest comedy movie 'Magic Mike' - which is based on the actor's own experiences when he was 19 and short of cash - and he doesn't expect to experience anything ''worse'' than when he was regularly taking his clothes off in front of strangers. Speaking at the European Premiere of 'Magic Mike' at London's Mayfair Hotel earlier tonight (10.07.12), he said: ''You know that horrible dream that everyone talks about, being naked in

Channing Tatum has told his wife to stop waxing.

A Startling and Moving Film Behind the Dance Moves of "Magic Mike"

One would think that the subject matter of Magic Mike would render it either completely lurid and vulgar or completely frothy and silly; either way, completely tasteless and not much in the way of a quality film. However, in the deft hands of Steven Soderbergh and with star-making performances from Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer, Magic Mike ends up being a surprisingly dramatic character study as well as one of the best films of the summer.

Michael Lane (Tatum) lives in a sun-filled house in Tampa filled with strange custom-made furniture of his own creation. By day he does construction and car detailing work by night he is Magic Mike, eye candy extraordinaire who struts his unbelievable dance moves (and equally unbelievable body) onstage in an all-male revue run by Dallas, portrayed with perfect, reckless abandon by Mathew McConaughey. Mike seems to enjoy his lifestyle, but dreams of saving enough

Is Joseph Gordon-Levitt going to play a Form of Azrael in ‘The Dark Knight Rises?’

While many are talking today about the new poster released for the film, I thought to comment on something a little different; something that has been flapping around in my mind for weeks. Let me start out by saying that I have given much thought to the above-mentioned question before writing it as a headline. This is by all accounts me speculating on what role Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play in Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film. As a result, treat this purely as one man’s theory rather than as hard-nosed facts. Just like with all speculation, I feel I have some loose facts and clues to back this up.

Since word got out that the young and talented actor was going to have a role in The Dark Knight Rises, fans’ curiosity led them to suspect he would play a young member of the Falcone family, the Riddler, Dick Grayson

Welcome to The Pull List Comic Reviews! It was a great week for comics as every issue got a really good score, including a surprising (for me, anyway) Pull of the Week. As always, Warning: Spoilers Ahead.

Pull Of The Week:

Sugarshock – Dark Horse Comics – $3.50 Us

Writer: Joss Whedon Artist: Fábio Moon
