Local Boy Makes Good

Some of you may be wondering what happened to Chris Orr, our film critic and blogger. He's now editing at the Atlantic -- our loss, their gain -- and still writing movie reviews. Here is on on Iron Man 2:

Stark doesn't merely sing of arms and the man: Suited up, he is arms and the man. His campaign to remain unique in this respect (generous interpretation: counter-proliferator; less generous: monopolist) played a subsidiary role in the first film, in which he ultimately pummeled competing cyber-capitalist Jeff Bridges so badly that he turned him into a drunken, down-and-out country singer.

Actually, that was the part of the review where he summed up the previous movie. If you want to read his take on the sequel, click the link. You can follow Chris's reviews on an ongoing basis here.
