iron-man-2-dvd.jpg

Iron Man 2 (PG-13) – Billionaire Tony Stark (and his alter ego, Iron Man) is back, but this time around he’s under pressure to share his scientific secrets with the military. Plus, he’s still pining for the gorgeous Pepper Potts, and grappling with his own mortality (let’s face it, no batteries can last forever). But as the pressure heats up, a new enemy arrives (get ready for Mickey Rourke with stringy hair and an accent), and Tony must take on tougher, more evil forces than ever before. This time, it’s about family, loyalty and doing the right thing. But while he gears up to fight his enemies, the hyper-active, quip-happy Tony must also fight his own demons. (Robert Downey Jr. [Tony Stark], Gwyneth Paltrow [Pepper Potts], Don Cheadle [James “Rhodey” Rhodes])

Movie Review: The American

Babies (PG) – Welcome to the wordless, gurgle-licious world of global babies with a major dose of cute. In Babies, French director Thomas Balmés follows the first year in the lives of four infants in far-flung locations: one is in the quiet hills of Mongolia, one is in crowded, urban Tokyo, another is in rural Namibia, and one is in eco-conscious San Francisco. With nearly no dialogue, Balmés’s portrait lets us take in life from the very start in very different locations, offering a view of both universal experience and differences across cultures — and packs a surprising amount of humor (bonus: watch for the San Franciscan baby’s run-in with singing, hippie parents). (Ponijao, Bayarjargal, Mari, and Hattie, as themselves)

Movie Review: Waiting For Superman

Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky (R) – Who says classical music is dull? Coco Chanel follows the fashion mogul’s wildly risque romance with exiled Russian composer Igor Stravinsky, who moves himself and his family into Coco’s country house. Of course, it’s not all sewing and piano practice for these two. When Igor arrives, he and Coco set the place on fire (figuratively speaking), and it doesn’t get much more passionate — or dramatic — than a love affair of creative geniuses in rural France. (Anna Mouglalis [Coco Chanel], Mads Mikkelsen [Igor Stravinsky])

Movie Review: Easy A

Get Him To The Greek (R) – Aaron Green is a fleshy, unknown, and ambitious assistant hoping to work his way up in the music world. Aldous Snow is a skinny British rock star poised to make a comeback. When Aaron is sent to London to retrieve Aldous and bring him to the Greek Theater in Los Angeles to kick off a world tour, he finds that the hedonistic artist has more interest in women, booze and a big night out than in heading state-side for a career boost. As the young grasshopper of a handler does his best to reel Aldous in, he’s in for a raucous, wild ride along the way to L.A. (Jonah Hill [Aaron Green], Russell Brand [Aldous Snow], Sean Combs [Sergio])
