lol male strippers are so weird

I love Matthew Mcconaughey.

I don't know that I've ever seen C Tatum in anything before. He looks sort of dim.

I'll probably see this.

A dramatic comedy set in the world of male strippers, "Magic Mike" is directed by Academy Award(R)-winning director Steven Soderbergh ("Traffic") and stars Channing Tatum in a story inspired by his real life.

o rly?

zubaz fupa (elmo argonaut), Thursday, 19 April 2012 02:02 (ten years ago) link

yeah, there was a bunch of press lately about how he used to be a stripper and the movie is loosely based on his experiences

some dude, Thursday, 19 April 2012 02:09 (ten years ago) link

Current trends suggest that every film will soon by directed by Steven Soderbergh. And star Michael Fassbender.

wolf kabob (ENBB), Thursday, 19 April 2012 02:15 (ten years ago) link

That's not good at all.

wolf kabob (ENBB), Thursday, 19 April 2012 02:15 (ten years ago) link

tatum actually tried to get nicholas winding refn over to america (before Drive happened) to direct it

i have a lot of affection for Tatum, because he seems kind of like a dude. The only thing he's been good in is 21 Jump Street, though he is serviceable in Haywire.

the movies soderbergh built around the porn star and the MMA fighter weren't trashy either, tbf

Was just wondering how a thread hadn't been started on this one yet.

Wish there was a more ensemble vibe from the preview. There's a lot of, um, talent in this cast that didn't even show up in any of that footage.

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Thursday, 19 April 2012 12:52 (ten years ago) link

Still, 21 Jump Street made me actually not dread the idea of Channing Tatum being at the center of this.

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Thursday, 19 April 2012 12:53 (ten years ago) link

TBH, that trailer is a huge buzzkill. Is the whole thing about his relationship with junior stripper's sister?

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Thursday, 19 April 2012 12:54 (ten years ago) link

i kind of hope ol' steve spends the rest of his career working his way through every sub-subgenre out there.

dayo, Thursday, 19 April 2012 12:56 (ten years ago) link

not that i really want to see any of them, more that it's just pleasant to think of a steven soderbergh campus sex comedy starring former american idols and members of the u.s. curling team in 2015.

Ready to give Pettyfer best supporting actor award already.

Don't mind Tatum at all, especially if he treats me like Elton John.

Very much ready to see Tatum grinding to "Pony."

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 19 April 2012 13:04 (ten years ago) link

Each of my gay irl friends that I've discussed the movie agreed with me, tho, that Tatum is maybe the least attractive member of this movie's stripper troupe. To gay men, anyway.

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Thursday, 19 April 2012 13:08 (ten years ago) link

what on earth is a pettyfer -- is it something gay men wear around their waists to protect their virtue?

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 19 April 2012 13:11 (ten years ago) link

Tatum is maybe the least attractive member of this movie's stripper troupe

nah -- McConaughey is by far.

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 19 April 2012 13:12 (ten years ago) link

Not c. 1996. Anyway, we disqualified in on account of he's playing the Joel Grey role.

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Thursday, 19 April 2012 13:13 (ten years ago) link

oh yeah before, say, 1998 he was ok. Now I don't think he's seen Speed Stick in years.

I didn't really expect the Step Up franchise to go in this direction

(The new Step Up is the only other movie I'm as excited to see this summer as this one. Tru story.)

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Thursday, 19 April 2012 13:28 (ten years ago) link

I mentioned before that my sister-in-law had a cameo in Step Up 2 as the TV reporter talking about the dancing, haven't I?

Did she dance about talking, too?

wait a sec Matthew McConaughey isn't in it? why bother making this then!?!?

Because he has an Oscar now, and wants $$$$$$.

So this is a Soderbergh movie without his name on it as director, right?

Yes, it's his Poltergeist.

bcz he's "formally" "retired" from feature directing, but is cinematographer and editor on this, when he doesn't even usually credit himself as editor on his own stuff, seems likely that he was at least somewhat more involved than the credits allow

nb the credited director is not Shock G from Digital Underground, but has been Soderbergh's AD for over two decades

soderbergh did shoot and edit many of his own features, he just did so under different names

well, soderbergh himself sez he didn't direct it, i'd take him at his word until we get evidence to the contrary, no?

wizzz! (amateurist), Thursday, 25 June 2015 16:17 (seven years ago) link

he just did so under different names

hence me saying "credit himself"

I'm not saying he did ghost-direct it, just why people* might suspect that he did

(nb Spielberg didn't actually ghost Poltergeist and was only on set as producer a few days or occasionally iirc? for me knowing he shot & cut MM XXL made it more than enough of a Soderbergh film to want to see it after all, preferably in a cinema full of women)

there's a lot of evidence spielberg did in fact direct or co-direct most of poltergeist

enjoyed the hell out of XXL! Can't believe they lost McC and might've made a better movie.

saw xxl a couple of weeks ago and it's a blast. it's hilariously stakes-free (the event they're road-trippin' towards isn't even a competition!) but the cast have really good chemistry and it's fun just to hang out with them for a couple of hours. joe mangianello's gas-station strip is all-time.

rewatched the first one, forgot that the supporting strippers hardly do anything but dance (save for the Pettyfer-Bomer "I love YOU, man" drug scene, which wd have led to a pansexual quadrilateral in a pr0n).

one of the funniest things about it was kevin nash looking like he didnt even rehearse any of the dances. there was one point where all the guys were doing their coordinated routine and he's the only one whose lower body is completely motionless.

Super entertainment, as good if not better than the other studio stuff I've seen this year. The cheapo attitude -- no name director, same cast, no script besides routines and one-liners that sound improvised -- is just what this concept needed (no Pettyfur already a plus).

I forgot Matt Bomer was in the original. Fuck Matt Damon for saying an out gay actor would never convince anyone he can play a part. Guess it helped that he's playing the gayest straight male stripper.

Kevin Nash was an extremely broken down wrestler who once tore his quad while running across the ring, so yes it's pretty funny he's in these movies.

Chris L, Monday, 12 October 2015 02:29 (seven years ago) link

I think Tatum or Soderbergh or somebody said that Nash's character is a stripping "Lifer" who just doesn't try anymore, isn't good for anything else etc.
