Any word on Iron Man 2 DVD exclusives? Planning on picking up the 2 disc next week, but I'm sure each store will have extra "goodies."

I don't know about other stores, but Target has this exclusive "metal case" Hall of Armor set.  I was thinking about getting it, until I found out this morning that it will be priced at $36.99.  Eeek.

Current rumored frontrunner to play The Flash - Bradley Cooper.  Apparently the script (along with the GL 2 script) is nearly finished and will be done by Christmas.

That could actually work
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

I went to this on Saturday with SWMBO and enjoyed it.  Far from the greatest movie ever but good enough for popcorn.  Won't say it's good enough for a sequel but I'm sure that's on the way regardless. 

The question in my mind though is this: What was the point of this being in 3D?  Aside from my general dislike of 3D this went waaaaaaay beyond that.  Throughout the movie I kept slipping the glasses down to see if there was anything happening and other than being blurry the answer for the most part was no.  So I guess this then is how they jack movie prices by $3?  And the ad at the start telling me to be green and recycle my glasses?  Kiss my ass.  If you'd let those responsible enough to retain their glasses and pay a reduced fee if they bring them it'd be a hell of a lot more environmentally friently than repackaging the damn things for every 3D movie that comes out.  Gimme a break. 

If you are interested, then see it.  If you've got the option to watch it in 2D for a reduced price, you won't be missing much of anything.

I'd say that is true about all 3D movies.

Yeah, green hornet.  I saw green and jumped  ::)  Loser. 

Guess I was more irritated by the 3D, or lack thereof, than I thought.

I've never even heard of one of those, and I am all about comics. Classic ones anyway.

I know Bill didn't like Kick-Ass but I did.  Still not sure about number 10, though.  Surprised Iron Man didn't make it to the top 10.  It's way down at 22 below films like Flash Gordon and even Blade?  Two films I loved, but still...

A History of Violence?  Really?  That movie sucked out loud!
