THE WOLF OF WALL STREET (2013)
5 out of 5 stars
WATCH IT BECAUSE…
1) Leonardo DiCaprio is fucking awesome! Give the man an Oscar already!
2) The word “fuck” is used 506 time throughout the movie.
3) We love watching filthy rich people waste money on sex, drugs and excess. We laugh at them yet we secretly want to be them.
4) Did I say Leonardo DiCaprio is fucking awesome?!
MAGIC MIKE (2012)
3 out of 5 stars
When I first heard about Magic Mike, I was literally screaming. Where can you find Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello in one movie – all under-dressed? ALL THE ABS!
One of the opening scenes involves Manganiello stitching his golden thong and the guys slapping scented lotion on their legs. EYE OPENER! Plus, Manganiello’s stagename is B.D.R. – something my blog is not ready for yet.
While the “bigger picture” was for Tatum’s character to finally become an entrepreneur, I’m sure most of the audience can only see one picture – hot men stripping! When it first started, it sure felt a little awkward watching it but as more routines came and went, it started to feel almost okay to watch. LOTS of gyrating and grabbing going on. I expected more scenes from Matt Bomer though. And in case you’re wondering why Tito looks so familiar, that’s because he’s played by Adam Rodríguez – Eric on CSI: Miami!
It’s a fun movie and I believe those guys might have done more grooming than I do. I also believe this also serves as an important lesson regarding underwear. I read once somewhere that we should all dump underwear we do not want to be caught dead in simply because life is unpredictable. Pettyfer’s character should know that by now.
GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST (2009)
– 3 out of 5 stars
This was a pretty nice romantic comedy.
Connor (Matthew McConaughey) is a notorious womanizer, and his ghost of an uncle turns up at the wedding of his brother to warn him about three girlfriend ghosts (past, present and future) so as to let him re-evaluate his jerkish behaviour (eg. breaking up via IM-conference) and re-connect with his first love, Jenny (Jennifer Garner).
Some parts were really funny, like this quote…
Jenny: If you do anything to distract from her wedding, I will sneak into your room in the middle of the night and cut off your favorite appendage.
