Welcome to Summer. The first real blockbuster is in the books, and boy was it a doozy. "Iron Man" scored with critics and with audiences. While number one at the box and $100 million sounds pretty good, to really understand how well the film did, it's helpful to look at some comparisons.

First, some prominent superhero films by Metacritic score:
Spider Man 2 - 83
Iron Man - 78

Terminator 4 is going to be PG-13. Sorry to make your head explode first thing in the morning, but it had to be done. I'm officially over the enthusiasm for this that was forced on me by everyone else.

"The Knights Templar" is about the famous holy warriors fending off an army of invading vampires. Although I'm sure they'll take liberties with the facts (vampires, after all) this concept still satisfies the history buff within me.

Three new TV spots for "The Strangers" just might be what you need to help you get over the first story. Let me know if it works. The home invasion pic starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman opens everywhere May 30th (only a few weeks away!).

Last week saw the release of many peoples justification for owning a Wii; Mario Kart.

Released on every Nintendo Platform made since the Super NES, Mario Kart as been THE pinnacle of cartoon kart racing. There's hasn't been a whole lot of others mind you, but for what there is, none hold a candle to this little Italian plumber and his lead foot.

Death just got a little more whimsical. Although I currently have to place this in the "pics or it didn't happen" category (updated), ABC News reports that apparently an older Illinois man has purchased a PBR themed coffin, and PARTIED OUT OF IT!

The crew is taking the week off to recharge a bit so in our absence, I thought I'd compile this handy dandy guide to exploring back episodes. It's not all inclusive but it's a great place to start if you're new to the show. So, relax, listen, and enjoy!
