Double Feature: Iron Man 2 & Multiple Sarcasms

Each Friday, we will offer up two movies that are scheduled to be released within the accompanying weekend. We know, we know. It’s hard to come across blogs who ever actually get movie talk right. That’s why we won’t say much. A trailer. A paragraph. And boom – all you need to know about what new movies you can take your beautiful object of affection to see this weekend. It's like going to the drive-in movie theater. Remember those? So much fun. Thank us later, not now.

Iron Man 2

Why go watch this? Justin Theroux wrote Robert Downey Jr.'s parts in this movie. Who is Justin Theroux? Well, he wrote the actor's lines for the incredibly (i.e. legendarily) funny "Tropic Thunder" as well. Still, we have no intention on seeing this anytime soon. Any movie based on a comic book is a movie worth missing. But that's just us. Never would we judge. In any case, Scarlett Johansson is said to make an appearance, and if she's half the actress she was in "Lost In Translation," she may make the movie worth watching alone. Unfortunately, that's highly unlikely. Love Bobby. Love her. Even sort of like Mickey Rourke. Hey, it's the first real blockbuster of the summer season. That's got to count for something, right?

Multiple Sarcasms

"If you could write it over, would you be more selfish? More brave? Or would you do it the same?" Those are the first words of the trailer (as you can see below). This looks good. Timothy Hutton and Mira Sorvino. Between the both of them, they combine to have exactly two more Academy Awards than we do. A story about a writer who goes through a life-changing experience while, well, writing. It also seems to hold some type of love story, and a cute young girl who makes poignant remarks throughout the movie (always a prerequisite for a good film). Exactly our kind of movie. For those who may want to escape the glam that is "The Opening Weekend Of Iron Man 2," this seems to be the perfect remedy. It's limited, though. As all the great ones tend to be. Moody movies are the best. Let's see if this one doesn't disappoint.
