Movie Review: ‘Magic Mike’ Starring Channing Tatum Pleases More Than Just The Ladies

Posted: July 2, 2012 at 4:17 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews, Tom O'Keefe Movie Reviews

Channing Tatum as our titular (dick-ular?) hero. Mike is a man of many talents – construction worker, club promoter, furniture designer and all around entrepreneur. However, try as he might, the lion’s share of his income is derived from, um…dancing? Sure, let’s call it “dancing.” He’s smart enough to want more; he just doesn’t know […]

Movie Review: ‘Magic Mike’ Starring Channing Tatum as Male Stripper / Entrepreneur is Surprisingly Good

Posted: June 29, 2012 at 8:10 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Let me be honest and say that I was not looking forward to seeing Magic Mike. I am was not a huge fan of Channing Tatum, especially his acting. And needless to say, I wasn’t the least bit excited to see a movie that revolves around him stripping. But as a fan of film and […]

Movie Review – “The Lincoln Lawyer” Starring Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Phillippe

Posted: March 18, 2011 at 4:13 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a good courtroom drama. The closest thing was “Conviction” last year, but that centered more around the main character becoming an attorney. In “The Lincoln Lawyer,” Matthew McConaughey plays a defense lawyer that is hard not to like. The same can be said about the film. Mick Haller […]

Posted: February 23, 2010 at 1:31 pm   /   Local, Television

A lot of websites and blogs are firing up today talking about the guest list for the return of Jay Leno. Saying the first two weeks proves that he wasn’t hurt by the debacle at all. It’d be naive to think that NBC wouldn’t be able to book top guests for the return of a […]

McConaughey producing animated series ‘Rooster’ based on brother’s life

Posted: November 30, 2009 at 1:02 pm   /   Local, Movie News, Television
