Just watched the movie “Foxcatcher” last night and it was really good!

Last night, I watched the film, “Foxcatcher” starring Channing Tatum, Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo.

I thought it was a very good film and one of the best drama films I’ve seen in years. This movie is about the murder of freestyle wrestler, Dave Schultz. It also tells the story of Olympic gold medalist, Mark Schultz training at John Du Pont’s “Foxcatcher” farm.

The movie was a bit long and a bit slow pacing but still a very good movie worth watching. I thought this was Steve Carell’s best performance in his career too. This movie is based on real life events so all it takes is a quick google search to learn more about the real John Du Pont story. As a matter of fact, I never knew about the Dave Schultz murder story until I saw this film and then I started researching this story more.

This movie was based on the book written by Mark Schultz so this makes me wanna read the book too.

I thought this movie was really good and would like to get it on BluRay sometime. Check it out yourself.



Do you think Sony would be successful in expanding the “Ghostbusters” universe???

This article at Deadline is an interesting read…


Ivan Reitman and Sony wants to expand the Ghostbusters universe. They don’t want to leave the first two films as is at all. They want to turn Ghostbusters into a big franchise. More films, TV shows, cartoon series, video games, merchandise, etc. In other words this is what Disney is doing with “Star Wars”. This is what New Line Cinema has done with the “Lord of the Rings” franchise.

First we get the Paul Feig all-female “Ghostbusters” with Melissa McCarthy and all them — that film is still happening. Now there’s gonna be an all-male version with the Russo brothers helming and Channing Tatum may star along with a rumored Chris Pratt.

What do you think? Do you think “Ghostbusters” would be successful without the original cast?

To be honest, as much as I don’t like them continuing on without the original cast… yes, I think “Ghostbusters” will be VERY successful even without the original cast. I mean… “Ghostbusters” was already a big franchise around the time the first two films came out. They even had a few cartoon series.

Keep in mind, we have a new generation of movie goers and I’m sure this new generation have never even seen the two originals. Once people go see these new films, it could draw more people to the originals and I think that’s the goal. When Paul Feig’s all-female “Ghostbusters” film come out, you know all of us are gonna flock to see it anyways, out of curiosity. I’m predicting that once the teaser trailer for Feig’s “Ghostbusters” comes out, everybody is gonna be all over it.

Thinking about it a while, movie franchises moving on without the original cast and crew is nothing new. That’s what the Terminator did. “Robocop” continued on and continued to be successful even without Peter Weller.

Like they all say, the shows gotta go on. That’s how the movie business works.

Will I go see the all-female “Ghostbusters”? I’m gonna wait to see the upcoming trailers first and then I’ll make a decision. You really shouldn’t judge early.


Do women like men with muscles and six pack abs? I’d say yes they do! Don’t let them fool you…

After the trailer of “Magic Mike XXL” got released yesterday, of course, women on the internet went nuts over the trailer. Women would make claims that they are not attracted to men with muscles and a six pack but don’t listen to their lies. After the “Magic Mike XXL” trailer dropped yesterday, women started obsessing over the trailer. Sharing it all over the place on facebook and twitter. I think it’s safe to say that they are attracted to muscles and a six pack. They’re just really good at hiding it until now.

I haven’t even seen the trailer myself yet and I haven’t even seen the first film either. Is it possible for guys to look like those actors in the “Magic Mike” movies?

Yes, I believe it can be possible. Just work out hard, eat right most of the time, do your cardio and anything is possible. Don’t listen to the haters and doubters if you wanna look like that. Admittedly, that is kind of my own goal is to hopefully look like that.

Yeah, I’m still doing the fitness and bodybuilding thing. Still doing it all year round even throughout the fall & winter seasons.

If you wanna attract more ladies, getting into bodybuilding would help. Ever since I got into bodybuilding like 4 or 5 years ago, I’ve had more women approach me and talk to me — it’s a great feeling, ya know? They do like fit & muscular guys… don’t let ’em fool you.

Should I watch the Magic Mike movies myself, though??? These movies weren’t made just for women alone, this franchise was also made for “straight” men (Yes, I am 100% “straight”), see this interesting article on why straight guys should see these movies too:


So maybe I should check ’em out? I’ll have to think about it. I won’t see these movies in theater but DVD rental, probably.


Would I go see the movie, “Magic Mike”? I’ll check it out but it can wait for Netflix rental…

The internet has been going crazy over Steven Soderbergh’s new movie, “Magic Mike”, a movie about male stripping that stars Channing Tatum, and Matt McConaughey. I’m not seeing it in theater not because it’ll make me feel gay for going to see it. I’m not a big fan of Channing Tatum’s acting (I also think he’s overrated). Plus, Steven Soderbergh, hasn’t made a great movie since the film, “Traffic” in 2000, that was the last great movie he did. I did like the Oceans trilogy but they weren’t the best, just entertaining. I did like, “Haywire”, but it wasn’t the best, just entertaining.

It’s mostly women going crazy over, “Magic Mike”, which is expected, but I am noticing that straight guys have went out and saw it too. I believe the movie was made for both men and women. The movie is about learning how to party and learning how to pick up women, which is what a lot of men like, so guys can go see the movie for that. The women would go see it for the half naked muscle dudes. I wonder what made Soderbergh want to make a movie like this? I bet his wife begged him to do it.

“The Dark Knight: Rises” is finally coming out in a couple of weeks, so I’ll be going to see that one instead, of course.
