Iron Men and Bicycle Thieves at the Movies

Categories:

Iron Man 2  (Opening everywhere)
Director: Jon Favreau
With: Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Sam Rockwell, Samuel L. Jackson

Second time around can be a problem for a movie franchise.  We already know the actors and situations, there are no real surprises in the general idea of the series, and there is always the danger of the so-called “sophomore slump.”

NAKED vOICE

NAKED VOICE - Tonight we listen to the voice as a solo instrument.. with almost no accompanimnent or electronics, and mostly stearing clear of spoken word and closer to sound-poetry, avant acappella and other forms of music/non-music that uses only the voice. From the soothing to the jarring, from the humorous to the sinister and scary.. we might listen to such artists as Joan La Barbara, Jaap Blonk, Diamanda Galas, Henri Chopin, Junko, Demetrio Stratos, Tamia, Prima Materia, and Lexie Mountain Boys.

The death of bodyguard Robert Robo Mancini, whose bullet-ridden corpse turns up in a swanky new building, the 212, built by Sam Sparks, the high-powered Manhattan real-estate developer Robo worked for, ups the ante. When Sam makes it clear that the police won't have access to any company records, Ellie's interest is piqued. As she and J.J. try to piece together Megan's life, they discover a link between the student and a recently murdered real estate agent.
