Weekend Movies: Iron Man 3

 Ironman3-tony
Don't believe everything you see. Tony Stark is tops this time around.

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS 

When last we saw Tony Stark he was eating shawarma in New York City with his fellow superheroes in the stinger of Marvel's The Avengers (reviewed). When we last saw Iron Man, minutes before that, he was plummeting from a cosmic wormhole to his near-death having just saved the world from an alien apocalypse. (S.H.I.E.L.D's workman's comp insurance must be pricey.) I mention Tony Stark and Iron Man separately because the franchise's new writer/director Shane Black, who previously worked with Robert Downey Jr on the underappreciated comedy Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, seems more interested in Stark than Iron Man. This is a good sign, especially for a third picture. Time to flip this tin can around.

IRON MAN 3 takes great pains to make a distinction between the impenetrable suit and the man inside it. Tony Stark's first attempt to suit up is a comic misfire since he's engineered an Iron Man suit that comes right to him when he calls. He hasn't quite worked out the speed of his flying wardrobe -imagine a metal codpiece flying 60 mph right at your Andrew Christians. The second time we see Iron Man, if I'm remembering the sequence of events correctly, Tony Stark isn't in the suit at all. He's engaging in some prankster remote control business for girlfriend Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow, wonderful in this role but haters gonna hate).

The film even opens with a flashback to Tony's pre-Iron Man days, further separating the man from his iron mask.

News: James Yeager, Illinois, Manhattan, Princess

1NewsIcon Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee vowed to veto any legislation that tries to put marriage equality up to a popular vote. He wants to see state lawmakers pass a bill, instead.

Burke21NewsIcon The Toronto Maple Leafs fired their coach, the very LGBT-friendly Brian Burke, because the hockey team hasn't made the Stanley Cup playoffs since his tenure began in 2008.

1NewsIcon Hateful anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera from Americans for Truth About Homosexuality tells a mother who refused to let her gay son's boyfriend spend the night that she's doing the right thing because being gay is like being an alcoholic and shouldn't be enabled: "We don't give an alcoholic, we don't say, 'I love you so much I’m going to give you a bottle of scotch every month.' That's not true love. True love is what you’re talking about, it's defending godly values and praying for your son to be delivered out of that lifestyle."

1NewsIcon Alexander McQueen, Autumn/Winter 2013.

1NewsIcon Matt Bomer, Eddie Redmayne and other dashing men strutted their stuff at the People's Choice Awards last night.

1NewsIcon Britney Spears and The X-Factor have parted ways.

1NewsIcon Robert Downey Jr. wants to see Naomi Watts win best actress at this year's Oscars.

1NewsIcon Those of you who enjoyed The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield will be excited to hear that the sequel starts shooting soon.

Yeager1NewsIcon James Yeager, the CEO of a Tennessee-based gun company, said he will start killing people if President Obama tries to limit arms ownership: "I'm not fucking putting up with this. I am not letting my country be ruled by a dictator. I'm not letting anybody take my guns. If it goes one inch further, I'm gonna start killing people."

1NewsIcon Vice President Joe Biden said today that he and his gun task force will have policy recommendations to President Obama by next Tuesday. The admittedly insane NRA, meanwhile, is "disappointed" by their talks with Biden.

1NewsIcon A new generation of activists continues to expand the queer spectrum: "If the gay-rights movement today seems to revolve around same-sex marriage, this generation is seeking something more radical: an upending of gender roles beyond the binary of male/female. The core question isn’t whom they love, but who they are — that is, identity as distinct from sexual orientation." Love it.

1NewsIcon If Prince William and Duchess Kate have a girl, she will not have to suffer the indignity of being a simple "Lady," like any old Crawley. No, Queen Elizabeth announced the child will be a "Princess." A boy would be a prince automatically, because, you know, sexism.

1NewsIcon Pat Brady, the Illinois GOP party chairman who supports marriage equality, refuses to give into conservative pressure and step down. "If people want to throw me out because I took a stand on an issue of discrimination [as] the chairman of the Republican Party, the party founded by Abraham Lincoln, then that's – that’s up to them and they’re free to do it," he said. "But I'm not backing down."

1NewsIcon President Obama has nominated Jack Lew to replace Timothy Geithner as Treasury Secretary.
