“Space… the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Her ongoing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life forms and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before”. Such was the phrasing of the very famous quote from the classic television show at the closing of the 2009 “Star Trek” film as they were read by Leonard Nimoy himself. Today the sequel to that film opens in theaters everywhere and is entitled “Star Trek Into Darkness”.
And now the second big wave of Marvel Cinematic Universe films begins and comes to us via “Iron Man 3” where Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as both Tony Stark and Iron Man. I know I’ve broadcast about this already when we got the first official trailer, but you should know that I eat this stuff up. Iron Man will be going head to head with The Mandarin who is being played by Ben Kingsley and we can also count on Don Cheadle reprising his role as Rhodey and donning an altered version of the War Machine armor we saw in “Iron Man 2”. While this looks exciting, I am a tad skeptical about a non-Chinese Mandarin but let’s see how they work this explanation out if they do it at all.
I’ve closed the means to comment on this one so I avoid any spoiler reviews being left here. My hope is to see the film as soon as possible but I don’t think I will add any sort of review to the site until it comes out on DVD. A link to the trailers can be found HERE if you have not yet seen one.
With so many of the Metal fans digging into this now no longer new show, I figured a little broadcast celebration would be in order as “Game Of Thrones” launches into its third season. Now I will be completely honest with you and say that outside of a couple of moments in S1, it was not until S2 got heavily into it that I even was remotely interested in this show.
“Go Joe!!!!” It’s time to get back on track.
I’m going to put my geek hat on again for a moment and express a little excitement for the upcoming film “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” which opens here on March 23rd and the reason for the fervor is right below. Behold Cobra Commander!!!!
