‘Magic Mike XXL’ Review: Starring Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello & Matt Bomer

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

In 2012 when Magic Mike was released, director Steven Soderbergh and Channing Tatum knew they had created an interesting, hilarious and sexy film loosely based on Tatum’s real-life as a male stripper. Unfortunately Soderbergh did not return to direct the sequel, but did the cinematography instead so Magic Mike XXL still has that Soderbergh look, […]

‘Side Effects’ Review: Soderbergh’s Style Meets Mara’s Talents

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Side Effects starts off as an original and daring film, but takes a turn for the Lifetime channel ¾ of the way in and ends up being not nearly as good as it could have been. Martin (Channing Tatum) has just been released from prison after being locked away for four years because of insider […]

‘Haywire’ Review: Gina Carano is Amazing!

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Move over Angelina and Umu, Gina Carano is here and she’s about to kick some serious butt in the action movie industry. Let me just say, I love a great kick-ass girl flick. Some of the best include Kill Bill Vol. 1, Salt, Hanna and even the cheesy Charlie’s Angels flicks and the Underworld movies […]

Do you promise to love your wife, to have and to hold, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, while she suffers through grievous memory loss as long as you both shall live? That is the main dilemma that Leo (Channing Tatum) must face after his wife Paige (Rachel McAdams) suffered serious brain […]

’21 Jump Street’ Review: The Best Comedy of the Year!

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

I saw this movie twice, that’s how much I loved it. Well, the second time I saw it, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum and Ice Cube made an appearance at the theatre, which is a huge reason why I went, but STILL this movie is just that funny and fantastic! I’m not familiar with the TV […]

‘Magic Mike’ Review: Starring Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer & Joe Manganiello

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

If anyone can make a male stripper movie and make it watchable, fun, lively and charming, it’s Steven Soderbergh. Soderbergh, known for his other films which include sex, lies and videotape, Traffic, Erin Brockovich and Ocean’s Eleven (the remake) is arguably one of the most diverse directors working today. It’s his unusual coloring of his […]

’10 Years’ Review: A Realistic Look On Post-High School Life

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

“10 Years” is the type of movie that drops you right into the world of the characters, without any background information. Not only do I love learning about the characters from what takes place in the scenes to come, it’s extremely hard to compile a script of 10+ characters and introduce them to the audience […]
