Changing Reels Episode 20 – Magic Mike XXL

Please join the Twitch stream at Can't Stop the Kittens. Andrew's writing is on hiatus, but you can join the kitty stream at night with gaming and conversation during the day.

What do male strippers and diversity in cinema have in common? It turns out a whole lot.  This week we kick off the summer by taking a joyous road trip with the boys from Magic Mike XXL.  In diving into Gregory Jacobs’ film, we touch on topics such as female empowerment, racial and gender depictions, and how this film ties into the recent Wonder Woman controversy at the Alamo Drafthouse.  We also take a moment to discuss our short film picks: David Fried’s Return to High Chaparral and Justin Dec’s Boats.
