Magic Mike Last Dance Review

Where other movies need a compelling plot to be good the only type of plot a Magic Mike movie should have is “let’s dance and strip”. Which is why I don’t think this movie was that great. Of all of the Magic Mike movies my favorite was the second because it was simply a fun movie with dancing strippers, nothing too serious. Now Last Dance seemed like it wanted to try and strike a balance between the seriousness of the first Magic Mike and the wildness of the second but in doing that it only made it feel like it was lacking in both areas. There was only the bare bare bare minimum of plot and instead of adding to the movie it just made it more confusing because every little plot detail that was added just felt rushed.

And another problem that comes from trying to add in a plot is that it takes away from the dancing. The whole reason I went to see a Magic Mike movie is for the dancing so it’s a pretty big disappointment when there are only like 2.5 scenes with Mike himself dancing. Honestly, the only good thing that actually came out of this movie was the butler, I love a bitchy butler. But sadly one cool butler can’t save an entire movie by himself. Basically, I was hoping it was going to be way more fun than it was so I have to give it a 5 out of 10 for its very minor entertainment value.

The Lost City Review

It’s no surprise to me that this movie was undeniably funny, I mean what would you expect from a comedy staring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum they’re amazing. Plus what’s better then Daniel Radcliffe as a villain? Nothing that’s what. Since it’s probably no surprise to anyone else that this is a good movie I’m just going to quickly talk about what I think set this movie apart from other rom-coms.

And that is what I’d like to call the perfect ratio between funny and serious. There wasn’t too many serious parts so it kept its rom-com feel but there also wasn’t so few scenes that it felt wrong to have them in the first place. I was also surprised by the combination of cliché and unpredictable. Like, I simultaneously knew and not knew what was going to happened. Which weirdly made the movie even more fun to watch. So, with this balance I would give The Lost City a 7 out 10.

Dog Review

Dog was a really cute movie but more then that I feel like it was a really balanced movie. And by that I mean it wasn’t all sad or all happy. For every moment you laughed, you cried and vice versa.

That’s what made Dog unique for a dog movie. Normally you go into a movie about a dog expecting it to be all funny or ultimately sad by the end, but Dog wasn’t like that. My emotions went up and down during the entirety of the the movie which ultimately left me at a content emotional middle ground slightly leaning towards happy. If you know what I mean. Which is pretty good by my standards, but only if it’s for a movie about a dog. Ultimately if I was left feeling how I did after watching Dog for any other type of movie I wouldn’t have been impressed.

I also feel compelled to add that according to my dad the details they had about the Rangers were pretty accurate and as anyone can agree accuracy in a realistic movie is very important. So, all in all I would give Dog a 6 out of 10. An excellent dog movie but an average movie in general.
