    Iron Man

    ★★★★

    My wife has pulled the trigger on showing The Infinity Saga to the kids so this is the start of a very long journey. The original Iron Man is a great introduction to the Marvel universe, both with introducing memorable characters like Tony Stark, but also with an intriguing (though slightly small in scope) story arc. That metal heart piece added some really memorable and intense scenes…scenes that are harder and harder to come by with each new Marvel property introduced.

    My wife watched more of my son’s reactions through the movie than the…

    Black Christmas

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Respect and enjoyment do not always come in equal measure. I respect the hell out of ‘Black Christmas,’ for not only it’s place in history as being the first ‘slasher’ but also for taking Christmas off it’s untouchable high horse in the predominant culture. Beyond these obvious points, it also has amazingly effective sound design, and many creepy-ass moments, such as any one of the numerous phone calls or whenever they cut to the first victim relaxing in the attic.…
