"Iron Man 3"
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall
Director: Shane Black
Comment: First two were better. As usual, in sequels, they rely on amping up creative of CGI action images and forget to create compelling dialogue. A lot of cornball chatter throughout.
"The Big Wedding"
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cast: Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Susan Sarandon, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried
Director: Justin Zackham
Comment: Barely two popcorns. Great cast but a mindless script.
"The Company You Keep"
Cast: Robert Redford, Shia LaBeouf, Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte
Director: Robert Redford
Comment: Nice work acting and directing by Redford. A little slow but very compelling and realistic. Illustrates how our past always impacts and influences our future.
