Iron Man 3 [Review]

Iron Man 3 [Review]
Iron Man is, please excuse the pun, the steel foundation of Marvel’s Avengers series. If the first film hadn’t done well, they would have had little to build upon to lead into the collective picture. Iron Man 2 went a long way to laying the groundwork for all of the heroes to finally team up, unfortunately to the detriment of Tony Stark’s individual story. Iron Man 3 shows us that, while Stark’s... 

Weekly Blend #331 – Iron Man Starts Summer with a Bang

Weekly Blend #331 - Iron Man Starts Summer with a Bang
It’s officially the summer movie season and Iron Man definitely starts things off with Grade-A Bang Bang. Thomas and Rafe offering their views on the third picture in the Marvel franchise (or seventh picture if you want to count all of the Avenger tie-ins). From there, it’s a look through the coming summer months as we talk about what’s coming out: what has caught our eye, what we... 

Thomas’ Obligatory Best Films of 2012 List

Thomas' Obligatory Best Films of 2012 List
Oh early spring film releases. The Oscar films have gone wide, the crappy horror/comedy/romantic movies are getting ready to do well for an opening weekend before exiting quickly and the critical community is organizing their obligatory top ten lists. Now, given that this is my first top ten list on an actual site, I figured that I had to go all out in terms of stockpiling on film consumption for the... 

Trailer Park: Super Bowl 2013 Edition

Trailer Park: Super Bowl 2013 Edition
I’ve been trying to get this rebooted column kicked off for a while now and this year’s football extravaganza has finally given me the motivation to do so. So welcome to the new trailer park, where we gather the latest trailers and commercials to hit the web and give you our opinions on how interested we are in the movies they promote – in other words, how well the trailers do their... 

What to Expect from an Avengers Sequel

What to Expect from an Avengers Sequel
With a record-breaking $200 million opening weekend, I think we can all agree that there will be a sequel to The Avengers. Even better: most people I know want a sequel to the super hero team-up. It feels germane to the film for there to be a second one, instead of another chapter that is simply tacked on. We have a long road to travel before we get to a second Avengers film, but we can pontificate... 

Weekly Blend #303 – We’ll Sure as Hell Avenge It

Weekly Blend #303 - We'll Sure as Hell Avenge It
Avengers Assemble! Summer is officially here with the first blockbuster of the year and it’s a doozy, breaking records and amazing audiences and critics everywhere. We have four opinions about The Avengers here for you, with different things about the movie we liked and disliked. We also talk about Battleship‘s oversea success before its American release, our Dark Shadows hesitation,... 

The Avengers [Review]

The Avengers [Review]
Ever since the success of Iron Man in 2008, the Marvel Universe movies have been building to a point: The Avengers. With each individual character movie finding massive success, the idea of combining the characters into a team became even more of an enigma: how do you take four characters who have triumphed in their own pictures (as well as two supporting players) and combine them into an ensemble... 

The Avengers 3D [Review]

The Avengers 3D [Review]
Marvel’s The Avengers is extraordinary, a monumental accomplishment of super heroic proportions. Director Joss Whedon has done the impossible, bringing together four independent franchises (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America) into a single cohesive whole. The Avengers is a better film with the heroes together than any single film with the each hero standing alone. It is quite a remarkable... 

Trailer Park: The Avengers [Trailer 2]

Trailer Park: The Avengers [Trailer 2]
The Earth’s Mightiest Defenders are certainly heading into theaters this summer. If there was any doubt, look no further than the second trailer for this summer’s potential blockbuster, The Avengers. Where the first trailer wowed audiences and fans with the execution of a collaborative movie (and let’s be honest – this is so star packed it’s almost hard to believe they’re pulling it... 

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows [Review]

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows [Review]
It’s been two years since Guy Ritchie, Robert Downey Jr., and Jude Law teamed up to create a new vision of Sherlock Holmes. Stripped of his polish and refinement, Ritchie’s vision brought a new direction for the master detective, complete with a complicated bromance (a word I suspect Holmes would detest as much as I do) between Holmes and Watson. The real shame of Sherlock Holmes is that now, two...
