The Blockbuster Report

Well, summer blockbuster season is officially upon us with the debut of Iron Man 3. As a huge Marvel fan, I was looking forward to this film a bunch, and I really enjoyed it. It obviously is my ‘Movie to See’ of the weekend. Here’s my review.


In limited release this weekend, we have Michael Shannon starring in The Iceman, the romance Love is All You Need, western Dead Man’s Burden, and what could be a heart-wrenching modern rendition of What Maisie Knew. Oh yeah, and, Midget Zombie Takeover, sure to be an instant classic.

Where do the Movies Come From?

We only add one wide release this time. Iron Man 3 is a sequel in my counts, as it is a continuation of the Iron Man film series. It is the fifth sequel of the year.
