Magic Mike, as interpreted by children

Guys, I pinky swear I will be back to posting actual reviews again soon, but…can I just have one more lazy video post? Like, just one more? …Okay, it probably won’t be my last lazy video post. But really, I will be back to movie reviews next week. I still have three new movies to tackle! And I was going to do a post dealing with that today, but when I saw this wonderful video, no force on Earth could keep me from sharing it.

As you know, I’m quite fond of Jimmy Fallon and all his Tonight Show shenanigans, so when I saw the summary for this one, I knew it had to be watched as soon as possible. Channing Tatum was on the show to promote Magic Mike XXL–a movie that I have literally zero interest in after the first one kinda sucked. (Also, “XXL?” Seriously?) But what Fallon and co. did for this little sketch was ask elementary school students to write short scenes titled “Magic Mike.” That’s all the kids had to go with–the title. They didn’t know anything about the films; they just used the titles and filled in the stories themselves. Fallon and Tatum picked a few of these scenes to perform, and they are all 100% hilarious. If you need some laughs to get you through the rest of your day, I suggest this.

Duets: 22 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon 2

Well this is a type of post I haven’t done in a while! So here’s a refresher for new readers and/or those who have forgotten (because I haven’t done one of these in over three months): Duets is a feature where I do mini reviews of two brand new movies or two movies that have recently come out on DVD. I don’t do this often—just when I’ve seen some things pretty close together and want to give myself a break by miniaturizing their reviews. Continue reading

Jimmy Fallon and Channing Tatum Arm Wrestle

I haven’t posted a Tonight Show clip in WEEKS! Obviously, it’s time again. Today’s randomness is in honor of Friday’s 22 Jump Street premiere (which I’m actually pretty excited about…don’t judge me). I give you Jimmy Fallon and Channing Tatum trying to psych each other out while arm wrestling. This…this made me giggle. Hopefully, you will, too.
