BRIEF MOVIE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CASUAL MOVIEGOERS

This week's highlight: Iron Man!
The summer blockbuster season has officially started! You've probably already booked a seat on May Day, so this Highlight is virtually pointless. But for those who aren't sure what the heck Iron Man is all about, well, it's one of Marvel's comic book characters, albeit a lesser known one as compared to Spider-man or the X-men. Like Batman, Iron Man's just a powerless human, but was rich enough to build himself a fancy metal suit that makes him fly and battle evil. Uh-huh. It's a comic book, what did you expect? Still, everything looks positive for this one, except for one review on Empireonline.com, which gave it a 3/5 stars. That's not a bad rating at all, but I was hoping it would be a slam-dunk. Oh well, there's still Indy 4 around the corner.
