Steven Soderbergh is back from his retirement from filmmaking four years ago – with a fierce heist flick that gives Channing Tatum and Daniel Craig a chance to have some real fun.

Amazon’s Comrade Detective is a Romanian propaganda tool in the guise of a cop show – the masters for which have been painstakingly restored by the Romanian Film Preservation Society – which has been rediscovered and dubbed into English by a host of first-rate American actors.

It’s also bloody brilliant!

Magic Mike XXL: Magic Mike Med. More Like!

MAGIC MIKE XXL

2012’s Magic Mike was a left field smash loosely based on Channing Tatum’s experiences as a ‘male entertainer.’ It was smart, witty and filled with intriguing characters – not to mention some amazing dancing.

Magic Mike XXL has all of the above except for the smart and the witty. The guys are still kinda fun, but the script really seems rushed and thin. Of course, most of the target demo will only be there for the dancing and stripping, but if they want anything more, they will be disappointed.
