This time, Dan Persons, Lawrence French, and Steve Biodrowski take a can opener to Iron Man 2, the successful sequel to the 2008 blockbuster, starring Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark. Does it live up to the original? Do the special effects give more bang for the buck? Can Tony Stark's ego grow any bigger? And what's up with Ivan Vanko's teeth?
Also on this week's agenda: A brief discussion of the trailer for J.J. Abrams super-secret Super Eight, observations on audience anticipation for both the upcoming Thor feature and the next installment of the Twilight franchise, plus all the new releases on home video and the usual roundup of the week's most newsworthy items.
