Rating: «« out of 4 stars

Running Time: 116 min.

It’s always nice to see an original title being released amidst a sea of sequels and remakes (even if the basic concept bears some similarity to 1992’s Freejack. That is why it pains me all the more to say that Self/less doesn’t do anything to distinguish itself from every other action/thriller currently out there. It features a solid cast and a couple of decent action scenes, but no vitality or fresh ideas.

Billionaire industrialist Damien (Ben Kingsley) is a man who has everything except time. With only months before a terminal illness ends his life, he pays a secretive scientist named Albright (Matthew Goode) to attempt a...

Not just for the ladies: Magic Mike XXL to satisfy a broad audience

««« out of four stars

The original Magic Mike (2012) was a bit of downer. Supposedly a semi-autobiographical telling of Channing Tatum’s early days as a stripper (or Male Entertainer as the boys prefer), the film focused on a young man on cusp of growing up and reaching his potential. The moral to the story was that stripping is bad and leads to soulless one-nighters, drugs and excessive tanning.

While Magic Mike was a rare case when Hollywood actually objectified men instead of women, many who went the theaters to see some attractive hunks slink around in a G-string were disappointed. Why so serious?

Fortunately Magic Mike XXL gets it right this time and fans will be dancing in...
