MOVIE REVIEW: Iron Man 3

Wil Avitt's picture

Here we are, Botophiles! The first big science fiction movie of the summer, and it's shaping up in just the opening weekend to possibly be the highest grossing film of the year (though with Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel both still on deck, you really can't say that with any sort of certainty yet). Iron Man 3 brings back principal actors Robert Downey, jr as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Don Cheadle as USAF LTC James Rhodes/War Machine/Iron Patriot, Gwenyth Paltrow as Pepper Potts and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan (though Favreau only acts in this movie as he has passed on directorial duties to Shane Black), as well as introducing newcomers to the franchise Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian (creator of Extremis) and Sir Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin (sort of).

MOVIE REVIEW: The Avengers

Wil Avitt's picture

Ok, here we are, The Avengers. Director Joss Whedon's culmination of everything Marvel Studios has been working toward for the past five years, since 2007's Iron Man ended with a cameo in which Nick Fury offered to Iron Man membership into something called the Avenger Initiative. The Avengers, or Avengers Assemble as it's being called in the UK, presumably to distinguish it from the 60's British television series and 90's movie of the same name, currently holds a 94% approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes and is being touted as the comic book movie of the year, and quite possibly the decade. By the end of its opening weekend it has beaten out Harry Potter for the opening weekend sales record by more than $30M. So what did I think of The Avengers? I could sum it all up in a single word: disappointing.

Well, it is finally here and we are interested in your thoughts. The fist real trailer for the upcoming Avengers movie, that I think (because I don't want to look it up) is being released next summer.

Here at Republibot, we strive to do everything humanly (and sometimes inhumanly) possible to bring you the best science fiction content on the internet. As part of that mission, we are bringing you this series of reviews of some of the popular songs from across the decades that have told stories set in the science fiction genre. Last time we looked at Zager and Evans' "In the Year 2525", this time we're going to examine the song "Iron Man" from the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, which introduced the world to the great voice of Ozzy Osbourne.

EPISODE REVIEW: Iron Man Armored Adventures: “Tales of Adventure, Parts 1 and 2” (Episodes 25 and 26)

So here we are, after just about exactly a year, the first season of Iron Man: Armored Adventures comes to a close. There was some confusion as to exactly how long a season was, and whether or not we were actually well in to the second year of the show - cartoon seasons tend to run 13 episodes - but ultimately it turned out to be one long run of 26.

EPISODE REVIEW: Iron Man Armored Adventures: “Best Served Cold” (Episode 24)

Curiously, I seem to have missed an episode. According to the official information, there was an episode called “Uncontrollable” involving the Hulk that was supposed to air between this episode, and “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” I have absolutely no memory. I’m not sure if they reversed the order they’re airing in, or if I somehow just completely spaced out and missed it (Entirely possible, I’ve been very sick), but I have no memory of Hulk in Iron Man.

EPISODE REVIEW: Iron Man:Armored Adventures : “Designed Only For Chaos” (Episode 21)

Once again, we have an above-average episode that hits on some moral and character development in the show that, somehow, manages to fall a bit short of its potential. But as they’re consistently beating their own average, I have little to complain about.
