|I really like his |
Magic Mike and the quite adorable Channing Tatum provided just the reprieve I needed from bills, laundry and "The Terrible Threes" (our Two's were too too sweet, I guess). Don't come to this flick expecting a campy, rollicking good time. It's a real movie with drama, drugs and dancing dudes. Channing rocks the stage as the aging stripper (aging my foot, he's a young hottie, but in the stripper world he's becoming old news fast) who has bigger dreams. Matthew McConaughey has the time of his life working his oblique muscles with a serpentine oiliness that suits his leather pants to a "T". Cody Horn (looking like a young Sheryl Crow) is the cool-girl love interest who keeps Channing's dancing feet anchored in reality.
Girls' night out, anyone?
Spiderman's angsty teen love story with scary lizard-man fight scenes was just the ticket for yet another foray into fantasy land. Andrew Garfield pulled me in as the loner skater boy with a vulnerable heart and limber legs in a luge suit. Emma Stone charms and makes me want to wear my ponytail like this:
|Blonde bangs, big bag and a boyfriend--what more could you want??|
Die-hard comic book fans might be disappointed in Spidey's dark turn (the Mr. says it's not true to his original story line) but I was into it--don't bring the kiddos, however--this one's for teenagers on up only.
The party ain't over for these high-flying/foot stomping guys--look out for Tatum's Magic Mike on Broadway and the inevitable Spiderman II in a theater near you...Thwip
