As May 3 grows nearer, and the cast of Iron Man 3 sits down with the American press to talk about the movie, I want to share some things I learned about the comic book side of the "Extremis" story line with you.
The intention of "Parade's End" may have been to explore the love and hate that the two lead characters (played by Benedict Cumberbatch and Rebecca Hall) have for each other, but what ends up on the screen is often a muddled soup
Everything Must Go is what a filmed short story should be: compact, deep with character but still contained in its action and settings. It's nice to see Ferrell stretching himself. Time for more of that career yoga, Will.
I thought Everything Must Go would be a hard sell with audiences, as fans of Ferrell's raunchy comedies are put off by the film's serious tone while drama lovers keep their distance, but there's a lot to like in this small, thoughtful movie.
