Iron Man 3 Review

After watching Avengers Assemble last year, one of my thoughts coming out of the film was wondering how Marvel would be able to top itself and with Iron Man 3 they had the perfect answer. Strip Iron Man to the bare bones and get Shane Black to direct. And you know what? It really works and Iron Man 3 is a great follow up to Avengers Assemble and a great start for Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Double Dose of Shakespeare

This year, there are going to be 2 highly hyped, major event adaptations of Shakespeare plays. Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing and Carlo Carlei/Julian Fellowes' Romeo and Juliet. Now that the trailer for Romeo and Juliet has been released, I feel like I should give my thoughts on the trailers for both films, starting off with Much Ado About Nothing.

RIP Roger Ebert

Today, after a long battle with cancer, Roger Ebert, arguably the most important and influential film critic to have ever lived has died. Speaking from the UK, I have very little direct experience of Ebert but through reading his reviews online and watching old Siskel and Ebert clips on YouTube you see a man who adored films in every way, shape and form and not even having the bottom of his jaw removed would prevent him from sharing his film knowledge with the world. After the jump are a few of my personal favourite Ebert reviews on Siskel and Ebert along with an excellent tribute to him done by Doug 'Nostalgia Critic' Walker.

Roger Ebert: you shall be missed.
