Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) **REVIEW**

Back in 2014 when I saw first Kingsman I loved it. Kingsman is funny, got some cool stunts and it’s something that never been done before. Back in 2014 we met Eggsy, a London boy with a lot of troubles and not much discapline. But he got recruited to Kingsman, a spy organisation that straightened him out. He became someone he never thought he could become.

In second film, we met him again. Still witty but much smarter. He’s also in a relationship now. If you remember the ending of the first film you know who he rescued. Yeah, that’s his girlfriend now, believe it or not. But they are good together, just Eggsy job that comes in between. In The Golden Circle their relation and Eggy’s relation to his coworkers is being put to the test thanks to a woman who’s slightly crazy, she became rich by selling high class drugs and now want… world domination? What she want?

We get to meet Kingsman’s cousins called Statesmen. Based in Kentucky, USA. They make whiskey and Kingsman makes suits. But for this enemy they have to work together to find out where she is and what she actually wants. Poppy poisons her drugs and only way to get her antidote is to grant her immunity. When one of their own get poisoned by this drug they know the really have to work together. We also get to meet a unlikely movie guest – Elton John. Not kidding. Elton himself, plays himself in this film and he is so funny. Made me laugh every time.

So now Kingsman & Statemen have to work together, so how well will they work together really? Specially now that Eggsy and Merlin found out that Harry is still alive…. but something isn’t quite okay with him. He lost his memory, but as you know, he gets it back but is he still Harry though? And can they trust him? Can Eggsy and Merlin trust one of their own?

If you are a fan of Kings: The Secret Service then I would really recommend for you to go and see this one in the cinema. It’s witty, funny, cool stunts and it also got Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges and Julienne Moore. They make a fun incredible cast.

Who is the director and what is she/he known for?

Matthew Vaugh known for SEVERAL other films that done really well on the big screen. To mention a few: Kingmen: The Secret Service, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Stardust, Layer Cake. So there’s a huge chance you might have seen work already. Born in London, he went to U.S and become an assistant to a director. After a while he returned to London and studied Ancient History. But he dropped to return to U.S  to start his career as a director. But soon saw everyone else tried the same so he went back home once again and made films in England, some shorts and he got noticed.

Magic Mike XXL (2015) **REVIEW**

We do remember the first Magic Mike and we got to see how it was to be a male stripper with Channing Tatum in the lead. And it was one hell of a film for the ladies and then… Magic Mike XXL came out last year. And boy the second one is 10x better, stronger, funnier and SEXIER! I’m not going to lie. When I first saw this second film, I couldn’t stop giggling at part because you know – Channing Tatum and his dance move that will make your heart skip a beat, make you get all sorts of hot and have that giggle fit that only ladies get when a very attractive man comes around.

Mike is now the CEO of his own company and liking what he got at the moment. And then an old friend calls him up and he is taken to a motel thinking it’s a wake. But it’s a party and gets invited to come a long to the stripper convention. Before he makes his mind up, Pony comes on the radio. Mike starts to smile and he does his little routine in his work shop and just like that, his mind was made up and he seeks out the boys before they leave and join them on the trip to the convention.

Mike talks them into having a new fresh routine and they are little skeptic but he manage to win them over but, they’re MC gets hurt and now they need a new one so Mike and the guys seeks out Rome in Savannah. A MC Mike used to work with but it’ll take a lot of convincing to get her to join.

So question here is.. Mike and the guys will they be able to bring something new for the convention? And the MC? Will she come with? You already know the answer because films like this are a lot predictable but that doesn’t mean Magic Mike XXL is one of the best films of 2015 and it’s all for the ladies to enjoy and giggle.

You see actors like Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Gabriel Iglesias aka Fluffy, Matt Bomer,  Adam Rodriguez, Jada Pinkett Smith and many more.

Comedy Week: 21 Jump Street (2012) **REVIEW**

You’d might think that Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum would be a mix match couple when it comes to comedy but they really are one of the best comedy pairs.

Schimdt and Jenko went to high school together – Schimdt was the smart nerd one and Jenko was the jock who screwed up his life because he thought high school was a big game. Five years later they meet again – in police academy. Jenko is good at the physical stuff and Schimdt good at the tests – so they become friends and start helping each other to pass. They end up being close friends – and now they are partners.. These two nuts get a undercover job to infiltrate a high school to find a new very dangerous drug. So these two end up taking it and drifting apart because they get to do high school over again – not even the teachers know they are police officers. But over all the movie have it’s funny moments and you just sit there thinking “what did just happen?”

Would I recommend it? Yes I would, 21 jump street is one of the funniest comedy movies out there made in modern time. Just give it a chance and you’ll find yourself laughing.

You see actors like Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Brie Larson, Dave Franco, DeRay Davis, Ice Cube, Chris Parnell and many more.
