New Movie Friday

There aren't a lot of choices this week but then again, challenging Tony Stark is probably a bad idea.

Wide Release
"Iron Man 2" - Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Mickey Rourke, Don Cheadle.
Potentially the biggest blockbuster of the year, this thing has already blown past $100 million overseas. RBJ plays Tony Stark, the billionaire playboy also known as Iron Man, whose awesomness is opposed by Mickey Rourke and a couple of other baddies. I'm concerned that this is going to get the "Spider Man 3" treatment and try too hard to cram a huge cast onto the screen when what we really want is more Stark.
Rated: Ludacris

"Babies" - Some babies.
A documentary about the birth and short term raising of three babies in three different parts of the world and the differences in their upbringing. I don't like real-life babies a whole lot so I'm not sure you could pay be to watch a movie about on-screen babies.
Rated: Travolta

Limited Release
"Casino Jack and the United States of Money" - Jack Abramoff.
A Michael Moore-inspired documentary about super lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Politics in general make me want to kick puppies so I'm probably out.
Rated: C3-PO

Rating Definitions:
Bauer - So packed with awesome I'll probably be there opening day.
Ludacris - I'm excited to see it but also concerned about some red flags, like anytime a rapper is in the cast.
Vote for Pedro - I'll put off seeing it and hope I'll be pleasantly surprised.
Wahlberg - I'll pick up the DVD and for some reason enjoy it.
Gob Bluth - The phrase, "I've made a huge mistake" is likely to be uttered if and when I do see it.
C3-PO - The odds of me seeing it are similar to the odds of successfully navigating an asteroid field.
Travolta - No way, no how will I willingly see this; similar to the odds John Travolta has of ever winning an Oscar.
