Hey everyone! Hope last week went good for everyone. This is a new week and with a new week comes some great movies and shows to watch! Here's the lineup for this week.

 

Iron Man 2

Wealthy inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) -- aka Iron Man -- resists calls by the American government to hand over his technology. Meanwhile, Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke) has constructed his own miniaturized arc reactor, causing all kinds of problems for our superhero. Sam Rockwell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle and Samuel L. Jackson co-star in director Jon Favreau's sequel based on Marvel comic book characters.

Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle
Director: Jon Favreau

Loved it! I think it was just as good as the first movie and Don Cheadle is one of my favorite actors so needless to say I loved that he was in this!

 

Get Him to the Greek

Ambitious young record company intern Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) will let nothing get in the way of his planned rise to the top in the music business -- not even the unruly rock star (Russell Brand) he must escort to Los Angeles for the start of his anniversary concert. Doing whatever it takes to get the rocker from Point A to Point B, Aaron encounters all manners of mishaps in this comedy directed by Nicholas Stoller and produced by Judd Apatow.

Cast: Jonah Hill, Russell Brand
Director: Nicholas Stoller

This movie was really funny! It was also very quotable which I love. It kept a fast pace for the most part but there were some scenes that I felt did not really need to be in there.

 

Babies

Documentary filmmaker Thomas Balmes charts the simultaneous early development of four babies from different parts of the world, illustrating what makes human life unique, similar and precious wherever it occurs. Training his camera on newborns Hattie from San Francisco, Ponijao from Namibia, Bayarjargal from Mongolia and Mari from Tokyo, Balmes captures everything from first screaming breaths to first steps.

 Director: Thomas Balmes

This looks really interesting.

 

Party Down Season 2

It's another year of waiting for their big break and another year of swallowing their pride for a motley crew of aspiring actors, writers and comedians who fund their Hollywood dreams by working as waiters for a Los Angeles catering service. In the second season of this comedy series, Megan Mullally co-stars as a single mom who joins the team as they work endless rounds of Tinseltown parties, sweet-16 soirees and other events.

Cast: Adam Scott, Ken Marino

Even though this show is over now I really enjoyed both seasons.
