Now Playing Review – Iron Man 2

Tony Stark is back in Iron Man 2, bringing with him some variations on his high tech business suit, new enemies, new allies, and that same, overly confident, “winning” personality (the sarcasm is only halfhearted because it’s hard not to love him). Between the first film and now, Tony Stark boasts that he has fulfilled […]

Review: Iron Man 2

Summer is here, as is our first sequel of the summer in Iron Man 2 and the results are an entertaining and solid follow up to the widely lauded original, but I can’t quite put my finger on how it stacks up to its predecessor. The conundrum I have with the film is the tone […]

Nixon (Frank Langella) is the only president to ever resign from office, and in doing so a nation was cheated and robbed […]

Review: Choke

The adaptation of the Chuck Palahniuk novel of the same name is a well made and humorous adventure in the life of a sex addict, but as a reader and lover of the book, I feel like it didn’t quite touch the greatness of the source material. With that said, Clark Gregg’s adaptation will most […]
