|Iron Man 2|
|In my opinion Iron Man 2 is better than the first film, if only by the slimmest of margins, but at the same time I wasn’t the big time supporter of the first film so many others were even though I did like it. For a full explanation check out my review.
This film is rated PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence, and some language.
|Casino Jack and the United States of Money|
|This is a solid documentary, just as would be expected from Alex Gibney, and it’s opening in nine theaters this weekend and expanding throughout the month of May and June. However, as interesting and entertaining as Gibney can make this, it’s also something that is sure to infuriate you. I go into it a bit more in my review, but depending on how you react to the word “lobbyist” in the first place may be enough to gauge just how upset you’ll be when you hear Jack Abramoff’s story.

This film is rated R for some language.
|Mother and Child|
|An elegantly told story of motherly love using adoption as its catalyst. While I didn’t really like the way writer-director Rodrigo Garcia wrapped the story up, it deserves plenty of kudos for how wonderfully told and acted it is from all involved. It too is getting a limited release this weekend, but you can click here to see when it is coming your way.
This film is rated R for sexuality, brief nudity and language.
