Iron Man is a character that I never in my history of comic book fandom cared about. When talk first started circulating about an Iron Man movie, my thought was “I guess they’re hitting them all eventually,” considering that we’ve already been subjected to Ghost Rider and Daredevil/Elektra. Especially now that Marvel has founded their very own studio so that they can produce movies themselves instead of selling the rights and points on the back end to others, it seems fairly certain that their catalog of heroes isn’t going to be closing itself off to the multiplex any time soon.

But after seeing Iron Man, I’m sort of ok with that.

Last year I celebrated my singledom on Valentine’s Day by sitting at home, having a few beers, and watching both ‘Kill Bill’ movies back to back. Ah, romance. This year though, I went out. Lauren: The Fake Girlfriend and I went to see Vertigo at the Wexner Center at Ohio State. Nothing says “Love is in the air,” like a classic film about a murdered wife and a truly creepy ex-cop trying to shape a living woman into the dead one that he loved.

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with “Get Smart.” I remember getting teased one day in class when as part of a game, I named it as a favorite TV show, and people laughed thinking it was some nerdy show that literally had to do with getting smarter. (We were supposed to draw a picture representing the show and someone drew a brain.) I don’t know if loving a 1965 TV series is any more cool for an 8th grader than loving a “getting smarter” show, so I didn’t press the point.

I’m back baby! That’s right, after a most likely completely unnoticed absence, I, one of your resident Inept Owl movie reviewers, have returned. And what better way to mark my triumphant comeback than with a review of another returning here, the much more sadly missed TV series, Futurama, as it roars into your TV with the direct to video movie, Futurama – Bender’s Big Score.

Recently, I saw a preview for a new version of Halloween. That’s right folks, and your old pal Rob Zombie is steering this poopship destroyer to a theatre near you. Thanks Rob Zombie. Thanks for ruining my life, and probably a bunch of other people’s lives, too. You suck. Your music sucks. Your movies suck. I hope you’re proud of yourself. You just mixed up some brass monkey in the Holy Grail.

Sometimes in a world full of movies about CGI superheroes, drunken teenagers, and ass-kicking secret agents, you really just want to kick back with some wacky puppets, some David Bowie music, and one hell of a codpiece. Welcome to Labyrinth.
