Iron Man 3 Review: When a film rakes in over 300 million dollars overseas prior to the U.S. opening you know it is setting up some great buzz. Yes, Iron Man 3 holds up well and is not only the best of the Iron Man films, it is one of the most solid of all the Marvel and D.C. comic book heroes translating to film. It is as if the producers and the director looked at the legacy of the comic book hero on film – Christopher Reeve as Superman, Christian Bale as Batman, the Spiderman movies and decided to perfect the formula by taking it all up a notch.
Iron Man 3 brings in lots of robots, of course, and as stated in my review of the second epic, the robot vs. robot was an incredibly artful moment in Iron Man Two, so putting a spin on that angle works very nicely here.
Think about it, the strongest X-Men foe in the early days of Professor X was the sinister Sentinels (an idea lifted in miniature fashion for the Matrix series). That we only got a taste of those fearsome (robot) machines in a “holo-deck” of one X-Men film is a good reason why the more popular Marvel franchise – X-Men – is outdone by a lesser character – Iron Man. With a strong actor in Robert Downey Jr. and very tight scripts all that is needed is a better villain that what The Avengers faced, the one big flaw in an otherwise great movie.

Oblivion: Tom Cruise on the way to redemption


Oblivion is a stellar science fiction movie from director Joseph Kosinski (Wikipedia noting “… made his big-screen directorial with the science fiction film Tron Legacy, the sequel to the 1982 Tron) and has Tom Cruise in his best acting job since Collateral (2004). Kosinski is quoted as saying that “Oblivion pays homage to science fiction films of the 1970s..”




Indeed it does, with a scene completely lifted right out of Star Wars, a lift that is so in your face it’s impossible to think otherwise. Same with Morgan Freeman appearing as his own rendition of Morpheus from The Matrix…and we can’t tell you who the smiling “Sally” (actress Melissa Leo) is emulating, you’ll have to figure that out on your own (a character from I, Robot.) What is intriguing is that Freeman and Leo are also in the current Olympus Has Fallen epic, the “Die Hard” pseudo remake amped up a few hundred notches. These pliable performers add their considerable skills to the core story, which is the undercurrent – the cake, if you will, to all the frosting (films from the past) that Oblivion touches on.

Gary Private – Italian Boys


In 1982 Gary Private released his rendition of The Atlantics’ “Lonely Hearts” as well as a short version and dance version of the Four Tops “Reach Out (I’ll Be There)”  - six minutes and 57 seconds of the Holland-Dozier-Holland classic, all very nicely done with production by Fred Munao of Select Records.  “Reach Out” has an especially nice long fade with Private’s heart-felt vocal swimming in Munao’s wonderful musical colorings.

Reach Out (I’ll Be There)

1983 brought the world three mixes of “Don’t Go Walking in the Dark”, a dub mix, A Capella version and a 4:42 opening track radio mix.
