the things I would do for you  

maybe it’s crazy
the things I would do for you
all without question

I saw Magic Mike today and it was good...

I really really really liked Magic Mike and I would see it again…

What did I like? Well, I LOVED all the dancing scenes and really would have loved MORE of those, especially any and all featuring Joe Manganiello’s “Big Dick Richie.” I loved how his first scene was him at a sewing machine working on a gold thong while wearing dark rimmed glasses. It was so funny and cute!… Matthew McConaughey was a freakin’ HOOT! He had some of the best scenes in the movie and he was alternately hilarious and slick and kinda skanky. He was incredible and deserves any and all accolades regarding his work on this movie. This article says it all for me… Channing Tatum, wow. First off, that boy can freakin’ DANCE. He knows how to work that body of his and it’s really beautiful, sexy, and inspiring. So once again, WOW. Second, he’s actually a pretty decent actor. I felt bad for his Mike in the one scene where he sees his hook-up gal and he realizes what exactly he means to her…

What did not work for me? The Kid’s sister, Brooke. I think it had mostly to do with the actress (Cody Horn) portraying her. I think I’ve turned into a superficial chick in some respects because if the actor or actress isn’t at the very least decent in the craft, then they had better be beautiful. And sorry, she just did not do anything for me at all. Hell’s bells, Riley Keough, in her limited role, managed to convey more emotion in her bits than Cody Horn’s Brooke. The only thing Brooke seemed to be was pissed off and judgmental. But hey, maybe that was the character’s angle. I just didn’t care for her (but I didn’t even like her in the previews).

What else? Well, I LOVE Olivia Munn so it was wonderful to see her, even though she had a little part. I know she has her haters but I adore her because she’s sassy, smart, and sexy. Plus she’s half Asian and I must support my fellow Asians, especially when they’re hot like her.

I still think we could have had more Big Dick Richie but that’s the crazy Joe fangirl in me talking…

I have to mention that I saw this movie without any girlfriends. I truly believe there were NO MEN in the auditorium but it was full of women. I guess the men out here in Brentwood know better than to watch a movie about male strippers. And we must not have many gay men out here. LOL! Most of the women in the theatre came in packs though there were duos here and there. It was great people watching, especially when the lights went down and the movie started. You’d have thought the men were actually in the auditorium grinding their way down the aisles. It was great! I’m glad I saw it without the hubby. He would have been rolling his eyes the whole time and it might have distracted him from the fact that the movie actually had a decent plot. ;)

I should probably also mention that back in my younger days, I did frequent a male revue show for awhile. Gosh, I loved watching those dancers do their thing and I willingly handed over my dollar bills. It was great fun. So while I was enjoying the movie, I was wishing that I could have been an extra on that set.

So would I recommend the movie? Hell yeah! Go see it with a friend or two or three. It’ll be more fun that way.

Oh, while I was driving to the movie theatre, I was listening to the 80s station and they played Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like the Wolf.” It made me laugh because I was on the way to watch a movie that has Joe Manganiello in it and his day job is True Blood as the werewolf Alcide. So the song made me think of him, like I wasn’t already thinking of him…

Speaking of True Blood, this week’s ep was another good one! I relished the Alcide scenes. And oh, he almost freakin’ made me cry! And damn that Sookie, drinking with Alcide towards the end. No fair!

Wow, I babbled a lot! Well, to reward you for reading, here’s a pic of my #2 fella:

I wondered if after tonight's True Blood eppy, if he'd jump to number 1 for you. I thought he did a wonderful job tonight and almost made me cry too. The man really does have some acting chops and I expect he's only gonna get better with more opportunties coming his way.

So glad you got to see and enjoy MM.

How were MB and AP? So far, I've seen AP do a few things and he hasn't really done anything for me. I haven't seen any MB work at all (haven't seen White Collar) but do think he's a lovely looking man.

Joe is sooo close to that #1 spot. I think what will do it is if he actually retweets me or something. LOL! If he does that, he's in! ;)

He was so good on True Blood. I think I need to watch the ep again to fully appreciate his moments. Oh the hardship of watching him over and over. LOL

MM was freakin' good. I loved it and would watch it again. LOL! MB was so gorgeous and he looked like he was having fun. Nice moves on him too. AP doesn't really do anything for me either (must be his age or something) but he did a decent job. I think it was a good thing he didn't do much "dancing." CT was outstanding in that department. ;)

I've never seen CT dance so I'm looking forward to that :)

CT is surprisingly graceful considering his muscular form. ;)
