Jean TellerThis is usually the way my movie history goes: a long drought, then too many to see in too short a time frame. Sigh.

From my March list, all I saw was How to Train Your Dragon. The extra price for IMAX 3D was definitely worth it for this cute, fun, wonderfully animated film. Other in-theater films I’ve seen are The Losers (lots of guns and explosions, oh, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and The Back-Up Plan (love Alex O’Loughlin).

Rentals included Outsourced (funny), Moon (strange, good and perplexing), Did You Hear About the Morgans? (fun for a rental), Men Who Stare at Goats (not worth it), First Descent (good for a doc on snowboarding), Fame (the 1980 version, almost a good as I remembered), Fame (the 2009 version doesn’t stand up), State of Play (complex, intriguing, good), Everybody’s Fine (it isn’t), and Love Happens (better than I thought it would be, fun and poignant).

So what’s in the theaters for May?

Robert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark and Iron Man in the sequel.

Iron Man 2 features Mickey Rourke as Whiplash.

Hi, Shannon, I missed Up in the theaters, so I lost out on the 3D experience. I rented it not too long ago, and enjoyed it immensely. A very poignant story, lovely characters and a great plot, and yes, good music! Definitely one to recommend.

I always tend to be a little bit behind the times, but have you seen Pixar's "Up"? I just love it, especially the music.

KC, the trailer for Bebes is a hoot. Although I have a feeling there will be places for tears while watching the movie. Yes, I saw How to Train Your Dragon on the IMAX screen in OP - awesome! The detail in IMAX and 3D was simply amazing - you could even see the texture in the Vikings' beards! I'm looking forward to Robin Hood for some of the supporting cast, even more so than Crowe's awesome acting ability. I know what you mean about personality (I refuse to see another Mel Gibson movie), but did you catch a clip of Crowe on Letterman, talking about his sons? Quite funny. (His oldest at 6 years of age compares old Dad with Indiana Jones, and his youngest, 3, has quite the career ambition.) I'm always ready to go to the movies. Give me a holler! :)
