Magic Mike (06/29/12, D: Soderbergh) (Tatum, Pettyfer, McConaughey, etc)

I would swear we had thread for this. Guess not? Whatever. We've talked about it and whatnot. Well we finally have a trailer for it.

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/r-4-kHix0V4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I....kind of expected something else. Maybe it's cuz the way it was edited and that song but...I for some reason thought it'd be more serious. Somehow the way it read was not how I pictured it to be like it is there. Seems like there's some inklings of things that it's not but that damn song sure as hell tries to convince it's a bit more lighter than that.

EDIT: Alright somehow in my edit I made another thread. Erase the previous thread please, oh great and powerful Mods.

This movie opens Friday and every woman I know is talking about it and wanting to see it.

Any guesses about opening weekend? Although middle-aged women aren't exactly the ones who go opening weekend.

It is currently at 77% at RT (with only 13 reviews, though).

Looks like another love story disguised as a strip tease.

I've seen some reviews that have compared it to Boogie Nights.

I think it will be a well balanced movie. Man ass and peen shots for the women and gay men, oliva munn boobies for the straight men.

All four quadrants are covered. It's a win-win for the entire family.

Script wise.
A dramatic, darkly funny but cautionary story about selling sex.

i was hoping so. The trailer sells it as far too generic mainstream. Depending on what some of the folks here say, I may go watch it. It's Soderbergh...so there's that.

My wife is using this fact against me.
"It's Soderbergh, so you have to go see it with me, right?"
"Well, no... I haven't seen ALL of his films..."
"But you saw Haywire only because it was his movie."
"yeah, but Haywire was GOOD..."
"So, this will be too. It's Soderbergh."

Fuck.

This is all any woman I know on Facebook have been talking about for weeks now. "Channing Tatum, Matthew Mcconaughey and Alcide in a stripper movie? OMFGSFDSAFDSAFDSA:FJ:SAJ:[email protected]#:$!J#@:J!!" bleh.

They can have it, I'll be watching Ted... and picking up the scraps as they exit.

Tell her that Ocean's 12 sucked. 13 wasn't all that amazing either.

12 was more of a Soderbergh film than 11 or 13 (and my favorite of the 3 for some reason)... so that argument may hold water.

I KIND OF like 12 cuz of Cassel. 13 had nothing horrible but it just fell flat for me. just a lot of flash. More flash than I wanted I guess.

While both of us hated Ocean's 12, we both thoroughly enjoyed Ocean's 13. Sure it was 11 rehashed in almost every way, but it was a lot of fun.

Cassel was the only cool thing about 12. 13 blew. 11 will always be the best.

Luckily Soderbergh realized that this needed female nudity too. I wonder if Olivia Munn can get the nerd love back now that she's shown her boobs
