Weekend Movie Discussion: Iron Man 3, Greetings From Tim Buckley

I know, I know, it's the personal touch you've missed this past month right? Short stories are all well and good but you've missed my exceptional commentary on new releases. Well, wait no more cause I'm back and fired up. Let's get to it shall we?

So... That Iron Man 3... Looks pretty good, eh?

Nope, that's all I have to say on the subject. I mean seriously, chances are if you're going out to see a movie this weekend, that's the one. But don't think I'm leaving the weekend at that alone.

There is also a plethora of limited releases this weekend, and while most of them are more than a little 'meh', a couple titles stand out. First up is Generation Um, starring Keanu Reeves. Okay, so it actually falls into the meh category and sounds pretty dreadful all around (an aging chauffeur for an escort service) but the title is dynamite. Seriously, it's like every Keanu joke rolled into one glorious title. Alright, that's out of my system.

The one limited release that's actually of interest is Greetings From Tim Buckley, a sort of biographical film focusing on Tim and Jeff Buckley. The true story has interesting notes (music joke) and depending upon how they choose to tell it, it could be good (mind you early word hasn't been favorable). That's coming from someone who's never been a big fan of Jeff Buckley. Expect the film to focus on the two things the Buckleys did best: Music and dying.

Too soon? It was too soon wasn't it? This probably isn't the right time to drag out my Bruce & Brandon Lee joke is it? No? Okay, glad I asked first.

So anyway, I'm back... Not sure if that's a good thing or not. Let the site fly on autopilot for awhile during the A-Z blogging challenge. Haven't quite decided if it'll spur me to post more short stories or less, here on out. Time will tell I guess.

So what are your plans for the weekend? Do they include a flying metal man?


  1. Yes, I'm one of the millions seeing it this weekend! Like there are any other real options...

  2. I'm definitely seeing Iron Man TS, and a perfect title for Keanu would be "Generation Whoa."

  3. I still have to see the first two Ironman I will be waiting. Loved the short story approach to your A-Z. Really well done.

  4. I didn't see it this weekend, but apparently almost everyone else on the planet did. Keanu Reeves is pretty much the worst actor out there in my book, so I won't be seeing him in anything...
