Magic Mike

Magic Mike, the male stripper movie, starring Channing Tatum, finally released the long awaited trailer.  The movie is supposed to be taken in part from Channing’s stripper days.  So that’s where he got those dance moves for Step Up! According to the trailer and some of the reviews, between the dance scenes, Mike falls for a friend’s sister, and of course, the girl next door can’t deal with his job.  I guess the scriptwriter and Soderbergh didn’t think women could deal with a total beefcake movie that didn’t include a love story.

That’s all well and good, but women planning to see this movie are expecting a feast for the eyes of hot male bods and will be disappointed if the flick doesn’t deliver.  The other cast I can’t wait to see in near buff:  Jo Manganiello, of True Blood, a total Hemanus, and of course Matthew McConaughey never disappoints.

Might not beat the Chippendales in the flesh, but Magic Mike could the next best thing.

Act of Valor = SEALS kick ass!

Act of Valor = SEALS kick ass!  Not everyone will like this movie.  It’s a realistic glimpse into what the men and women of our military do to keep our country safe.  Act of Valor was a thrill ride of guns and high-tech gadgetry that also took in the human side of war.  It’s not always pretty or fair.  Love and war have their simularities.

But I must admit I wanted to see this movie because I respect our military, and from swords to bullets, warriors intrique me.  All though I write romance, I enjoyed  Sabastian Junger’s book, War and American Sniper.  Both interesting reads that delve into the worlds of those who put it all on the line.  The shop talk on weaponry was to say the least, eye opening.  I could see naming my guns…hell, I named my truck!

Hope those that can handle the truth check out Act of Valor.  With a finally salute to our miltiary guys and gals, and also those in the alphabet branches of our government – Stay Forever Strong!
