In theaters THIS WEEKEND, these:
Iron Man 2
Director: Jon Favreau
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke, Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson
Good if you want to see: what that fellow in the flamboyant automaton costume is up to. Remember him?
Director: Thomas Balmes
Good if you want to see: babies.
Mother and Child (limited)
Director: Rodrigo García
Starring: Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson
Good if you want to see: a drama about three women connected by tales of adoption, yet somehow none of their tales are about an adopted girl secretly being a murderous 30-year-old.
Casino Jack and the United States of Money (limited)
Director: Alex Gibney
Starring: Jack Abramoff
Good if you want to see: a documentary about lobbyist Jack Abramoff that, by its name, I'm willing to wager takes a slightly critical stance; yet another piece that will leave you thinking, "Man, U.S. government and economics sure are fucked up, but what am I supposed to do? Hey, something on the internet!"
