“Adonis” – that’s the first thing that came to my mind while I was watching Channing Tatum and the rest of his Xquiste “Cock Rocking Kings of Florida” stripper buddies dancing on the widescreen. And in that moment I envy those girls and that I wanna be IN that movie! We all know that Adonis is the God of beauty and desire, honestly, what more can you think of when you see beautifully aligned packs of abs, muscular biceps and oh-so-sexy attitude strutting their stuff on the stage, but desire to feel and touch those oily muscles of these beautiful men! Somebody slap me, please! LOL
This year is truly WOMEN’S ERA. First, Fifty Shades of Grey was published; bringing to life the hot billionaire Christian Grey who fulfills our fantasies and now they brought us Magic Mike, a movie giving us, women a pleasurable sight for 1 hour and 50 minutes that leaves us breathlessly asking for more, or is it just me? hahahaha
I was amazed that Tatum is credited as a producer for this film. Well, this is based on his life when he was 18 years of age, working as a stripper. He is Mike, the main attraction in a small-time Florida strip joint. The Xquiste Strip joint offers different varieties: Former Cowboy stripper (Matthew McConaughey); Latino stud that plays Ken, Barbie doll’s love interest (Matt Bomer); Tito the David Gandy lookalike (Adam Rodriguez); The Mighty Tarzan (Kevin Nash); Big Dick Richie (Joe Manganiello) and Mike the boy-next-door dancer (Channing Tatum). Mike works multiple jobs and by day he works at a construction site where he met Adam (Alex Pettyfer), the Kid who he trains as the club’s hot new promising act and whose sister (Cody Horn) he falls for. Mike fancies himself as an entrepreneur. Stripping is his means as a stepping stone cause he really wants to set up a furniture design business but just when things are getting better like opening a new branch in Miama, things just started to get nasty. Honestly for me, the script and the flow of the movie was a bit dreary (except for their dance routines, of course haha), and it felt like a lifetime! You know what I mean? But the director (Steven Soderbergh) is quite brilliant by showing the realism of a certain strip joint. I mean, you don’t normally see a muscular guy sewing in the machine and trimming his G-string, a guy shaving his legs or shopping for thongs and other unlikely-man stuffs for their acts. It’s hilarious, really.
They do have a fine cast, the hot strippers really know their stuff but, let’s just say they can re-make the movie all over again? Who are your “Dream Strippers”? Well, I took the courtesy of listing MY dream strippers hahahaha Well, of course Channing will remain on the list as the leader of the pack, no question about that. I liked the awkwardness of Alex plus he’s really my crush ever since I saw him on his movie I am Number Four, so he will remain on the list as well.
It doesn’t come as a surprise when the first hot Hollywood guy that pops in my mind is the most handsome vampire ever created (I’m being dramatic, of course) Ian Somerhalder, aka Damon from The Vampire Diaries. OMG!!! I’m sure if he starred in this movie, it would top all the charts!!! I’m not sure if he can dance though, but who cares? Even with just looking at his smoldering stare, my legs are starting to melt. If he was in the movie, maybe they can do an act where he’s a vampire and he’s sort of biting the ladies’ necks, or much, much better my neck! LOL 🙂
If there’s a vampire, there should be a werewolf! hahahaha And there’s no other werewolf in town who’s hotter and more dangerous than Michel Trevino who plays Tyler the werewolf in The Vampire Diaries, so why not? And yes, he’s extremely hot. This photo is one of his ad campaign for (proudly) Pinoy Brand, Bench Body, that retails comfy underwear and apparel. Maybe they could put a stint where a vampire and werewolf are dancing together 🙂
Matthew has done a real great job on playing his role as Dallas, the owner of the strip club. But I was just wondering if Hugh Jackman got the role. Hmmm… Hugh is a very, very versatile actor and I’m sure he can play the part also well, and plus he’s still sexy beyond his age.
They should’ve included male models on the casting. For example, the hot Calvin Klein model Eugen Bauder. Gosh, he’d be so adorable with his cute german accent, don’t you think?
Or maybe they could have casted Korean actors like the super handsome Daniel Henney!
Or better yet, Rain! Now this lad can dance for sure! And he’s got a sizzling hot bod. Damn, I’m sweating like a pig! LOL just kidding 🙂
There, I’ve completed my dream Xquiste Dancers! And it was awkward watching that film with my boyfriend, but I did enjoyed it a lot. I’m sure there are a lot of haters from the movie. Some would argue that the story line is too shallow (well, I kinda agree *PEACE!), the actors and actresses have poor performances or the sequence of the movie is too plain. But let’s just leave it be. I’m sure the rest of the cast has worked hard to entertain their viewers because that’s their job and that’s what they love to do. So if you don’t like every single bit of it, just create your own list, just like mine 🙂
