When thinking about male stripper films, there are only a few that really come to mind. When making my list of Best (and Worst) Cinematic Strippers, it was hard to come up with two (although apparently I had missed, For the Ladies) that featured men more than women. Luckily, Magic Mike changed all of that and surprised audiences by being a quality film that deals with men who take their clothes off for money. I'm all for that.
Just in time for Halloween – Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is released on DVD and Blu-Ray. I can't help but wonder if it would have been a better idea for this movie to come out in the theaters this week instead of early in the summer? It might have helped to market it as a truly/creepy vampire film. On the other hand, I'm not sure if there is anything that could have actually helped, but it couldn't have hurt.
*Note there were conflicting reports of Savages being released today vs. Nov. 13th, but a quick scan of the internets seems to show it will be released on the latter date.
DVD/Blu-Ray: October 23rd
|1. Magic Mike|
Experience the Magic of Mike…in Magic Mike. Channing Tatum proved he could be funny in 21 Jump Street and a serious actor in Magic Mike and I wonder when we will stumble upon something this kid can't do???
|2. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter|
I still want this too be so good. Is it too late to be holding on to hope?
|3. Take This Waltz|
As reviewed by Matthew Marko, he says about this film: A showcase for the considerable talents of Michelle Williams, Take This Waltz is a nuanced take on familiar romantic comedy tropes that wrings real drama out of the most stock of premises.
|4. The Invisible War|
A harrowing documentary about the epidemic of rape in the US military. Hard to watch? Probably. Important to watch? Definitely.
|5. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World|
|6. Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Complete Fourth Season|
The adventures of Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker in a television series.
