Movie Review For July 1, 2015: MAGIC MIKE XXL and TERMINATOR: GENISYS

Rated: R
Stars: Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Amber Heard
Plot: A group of male strippers go on one last road trip...to a stripper convention.

Clint Says: Wait for the DVD and make someone else rent it

Have you ever seen a movie with a barely-there plot, painful dialogue, amateur editing, actors that just mail in their roles, and pathetic directing? Well, if you haven't, go check out MAGIC MIKE XXL and you'll see all of that and more. 

This movie looks and feels like they knew that no matter how bad the movie is they would still make money off of it. They are probably right, but it's a shame that they didn't even try to make a good movie. 

I saw this movie with two lovely ladies, one of them loved the first one and hated this one. The other was totally fine with this being a crap flick as long as she got a good dose of abs. I just wanted the pain to end.

Also, I feel that I should give some sort of a heads up on this movie...This is not Hollywood glamorized sexy, smooth dancing guys. This is hard core, grind-it-out, strip club stripping. 

There is one, and only one, good reason to see this movie. If you do you will never look at Michael Strahan the same. 

Rated: PG-13
Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney
Plot: John Connor sends a soldier back in time to protect his mother from a new Terminator, but the game changes when he gets there

Clint Says: Save some money and see a matinee

This is a movie that should have never been made. They should have left this franchise alone. That said, GENYSIS isn't all that bad of a movie. It's a pretty fun popcorn flick that has enough suspense and intrigue to keep the casual movie-goer engaged and happy. 

There is nothing spectacular in this film that makes it worth spending the money to see it in theaters,  so unless you are just looking for a fun, turn-the-brain-off night out then you'd be better off just waiting for the DVD. 

For fans of the original films this one will annoy you on several levels. Many of which are related to the main characters. It's probably best if you just pretend this movie never existed.
