    Iron Man 2, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Furry Vengeance, The Losers, The Secret of Kells

    in Film

    The summer movie season is here and whether it's Tony Stark's armor or Freddy Krueger's fingers this show is all about METAL!!!

    IRON MAN 2 is bound to be a huge hit. This sequel to the 2008 film brings Robert Downey Jr. back as the hero. In addition to Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle (replacing Terrence Howard), Tony Stark must also contend with Scarlett Johnansen, Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke. Marvel Comics produced this one, which is almost always a good sign.

    A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET is the remake of Wes Craven's 1984 horror classic. Jackie Earle Haley (WATCHMEN, SHUTTER ISLAND) plays Freddy Krueger this time out in a remake that is more like the gritty original than the humorous sequels.

    FURRY VENGEANCE is not an internet fetish site, but a new family comedy starring Brendan Fraser. When a real estate developer is about to knock down a nature preserve, the animals of the forest strike back. Hilarity ensues, we hope.

    THE LOSERS is another comic adaptation, this one a tongue-in-cheek action title from a few years back. A special forces crew is believed dead after a double-cross. They return to the United States in a bid to take out the man who set them up.

    Finally, THE SECRET OF KELLS is a critically-acclaimed animated film which is only now hitting the United States. It was nominated for a Best Animated Film Oscar, alongside such films as UP and CORALINE.

    We'll be covering all this plus film news and our DVD Picks of the Week!
    Hope to see you there, Film Geeks!
