Weekend Nachos


» Garry Shandling looks like a burn victim whose saliva is extremely acidic.

» Whiplash is built up to be Ivan Emelianenko and then toppled like a chump. I hate when filmmakers shortchange a villain's demise. A climactic fight should last at least three rounds.

Even Whiplash's fail-safe is treated as negligible. Someone leaves a cooler in Times Square and police evacuate the area. Flushing Meadows Park explodes and Tony and Pepper share feelings and kiss.

"You lose" refers to the audience.

» Genndy Tartakovsky conceived the Hammer drone battle.

» Why is Oracle's pavilion a wooded glen?

» Justin Hammer is arrested without a fight…like a chump. At least pull a gun on Pepper Potts. Tony lives, but Pepper dies – better story, no?

» Why would Stark Industries let a direct competitor present at its own expo? And how could the CEO of Stark Industries not know what would be presented at her own expo?

» I'm still trying to grasp how Tony extrapolates a new element from the model city. He eliminates the walkways and then BAM! Epcotium!

» Odd reference to SuperNanny

» DJ AM's father did not, evidently, leave him a blueprint for a non-toxic painkiller.

» Bill O'Reilly's cameo: self-parody or self-inflation?

» Heh. Tony Stark is a Clash fan.

» In Hollywood Russia, winter is the only season.

7 (or 12) Superheroes Based on Periodic Elements Who Are Not Iron Man

The Incredible Hulk takes place during the ending of Iron Man 2. The scene at the end where Nick Fury debriefs Tony Stark at a SHIELD safehouse [has] a brief shot of a TV screen tuned to a news report, and the reporter is coming live from Culver University, which is where Hulk has his daylight battle with General Ross' troops.

Ip Man 2

Ip Man 2 follows Bruce Lee's mentor as he establishes a Wing Chun school in Hong Kong. In the first film, he fights Japanese occupants. In the second film, he fights fellow martial arts masters and a "western" boxer – not the same gravitas.

Donnie Yen ruled out Ip Man 3 (Ip Man mentors Bruce Lee?), but two more Ip Man biopics will be released this year: Wong Kar-Wai's The Grand Master, starring Tony Leung as Ip Man, and Herman Yau's The Legend Is Born: Ip Man, starring Yu-Hang To, who also appears in Ip Man and Ip Man 2.
