This One's For the Boys...

I love action movies. Not for the fast cars, cool gadgets, or gratuitous violence. Nope, I love them because action is the one genre that Newlywed Husband and I can agree on, and both be totally happy with our movie-going experience!

I don't feel the need to drag Newlywed Husband to chick-flicks - that's what Saturday morning brunch/movie with the girls is for. I'd rather actually go see something that he will enjoy too (believe me, watching Julia Roberts or Reese Witherspoon smooch it up with some handsome dude named Rupert, Paul, or Ben is not his idea of a good time :)

Here are a couple of films coming out this month sure to appeal to the man in your life...and reasons why you'll like them too!

Fast & Furious 4 {Release Date April 3, 2009}

Paul Walker and Vin Diesel re-team (about time!), for a movie full of fast cars, shooting, and fighting.

Men Love It... for all the fast cars, shooting, and fighting.

Girls Love It... {see picture below}.

Crank: High Voltage {Release Date April 17, 2009}

Jason Statham stars as a man who has an artificial heart (someone stole his in the first movie, and replaced it with this one), that has one major glitch - he has to keep shocking himself to keep the heart going. Sounds pleasant, no? Oh, and he's trying to catch the people to get his heart back. Or something.

Guys Love It... for the non-stop action, lots of cool fighting movies, Bai Ling???

Girls Love It... because Jason Statham is incapable of starring in a movie that requires him to keep his clothes on. Set your watch to it ladies, he'll have ripped his shirt off within the first 15 minutes.

Fighting {Release Date April 24, 2009}

A young counterfeiter is introduced to the world of underground street fighting. Think bare-knuckle brawls, and lots of betting.

Men Love It... what fighting movie since 'Rocky' have men not loved? Training, fighting, gambling, an underdog triumphing... plus, Terrence Howard is in it, and for some reason all men love Terrence Howard. Weird man-crush thing, I think.

Girls Love It... Hello CHANNING TATUM! Where has this guy been hiding since 'Step Up'? (P.S. stay tuned, because the oh-so-hunky Channing will also be appearing in 'G.I. Joe' later this summer).

Mutant Chronicles {Release Date April 24, 2009}

Stay with me, this is way confusing. In 2707 the depleted world (shout-out to the environmentalists) is ruled by four corporations. Some Machine that was sealed during the Ice Age frees itself and begins transforming people into armies of mutants (shocker). A small army escapes to Mars, then goes on a mission to destroy the Machine and restore mankind to peace and harmony...blah, blah, blah.

Men Love It... Mutants? Suicide missions? Devin Aoki (the asian chick who was in Sin City, and whose family owns the Benihana restaurant chain - even I think she's hot)? Futuristic weapons? What man wouldn't love this movie?

Girls Love It... because the star is Thomas Jane. Remember? He's the guy that Cameron Diaz falls for in the 'Sweetest Thing'. LOVE him!

Happy viewing :)

What girl can say no to Channing Tatum?! lol He was in another movie after Step Up but I can't remember the title. He played a soldier but the movie wasn't very good!

Woah. Mutant chronicles looks awesome. I had never even heard of it!

Southern Bride To Be said...

Hmm...after reading this, I realize I need to treat my guy to an action movie...he's been so good to me about movies lately! :)

The Pink Tutu said...

Ooh I just love a good action movie as well! One of my favorites is National Treasure. Does that count? :)

The Shabby Princess said...
