“Iron Man 3” is now officially the 4th film to feature Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark the billionaire playboy comedy-genius who always manages to save the world. In IM3 Tony is suffering some sort of mental break down which is no surprise as you could imagine flying in a metal suit, fighting brands of bad guys, and orbiting into outer space could lead anyone to mental anguish. I know just watching all the high flying action leaves me a little weazy.
“Oblivion,” the summer blockbuster vehicle for Tom Cruise wants to be so much more than it actually is. Do you remember in Jr. High that kid who wanted so badly to hang with the cool kids, though he just wasn’t quite cool enough? He wasn’t that great at sports, conversation, or girl chasing but he still longed for the letter jacket of popularity? Craig was his name at my Jr. High and he could have gotten by on his laurels but lucky enough for him his parents were loaded and so he bought his friends.
