Weekend Nachos

» Garry Shandling looks like a burn victim whose saliva is extremely acidic.

» Whiplash is built up to be Ivan Emelianenko and then toppled like a chump. I hate when filmmakers shortchange a villain's demise. A climactic fight should last at least three rounds.

Even Whiplash's fail-safe is treated as negligible. Someone leaves a cooler in Times Square and police evacuate the area. Flushing Meadows Park explodes and Tony and Pepper share feelings and kiss.

"You lose" refers to the audience.

» Genndy Tartakovsky conceived the Hammer drone battle.

» Why is Oracle's pavilion a wooded glen?

» Justin Hammer is arrested without a fight…like a chump. At least pull a gun on Pepper Potts. Tony lives, but Pepper dies – better story, no?

» Why would Stark Industries let a direct competitor present at its own expo? And how could the CEO of Stark Industries not know what would be presented at her own expo?

» I'm still trying to grasp how Tony extrapolates a new element from the model city. He eliminates the walkways and then BAM! Epcotium!

» Odd reference to SuperNanny

» DJ AM's father did not, evidently, leave him a blueprint for a non-toxic painkiller.

» Bill O'Reilly's cameo: self-parody or self-inflation?

» Heh. Tony Stark is a Clash fan.

» In Hollywood Russia, winter is the only season.

Ip Man 2

Ip Man 2 follows Bruce Lee's mentor as he establishes a Wing Chun school in Hong Kong. In the first film, he fights Japanese occupants. In the second film, he fights fellow martial arts masters and a "western" boxer – not the same gravitas.

Donnie Yen ruled out Ip Man 3 (Ip Man mentors Bruce Lee?), but two more Ip Man biopics will be released this year: Wong Kar-Wai's The Grand Master, starring Tony Leung as Ip Man, and Herman Yau's The Legend Is Born: Ip Man, starring Yu-Hang To, who also appears in Ip Man and Ip Man 2.

The Mario 64-inspired Donnie Yen vs. Sammo Hung fight:

Shit gets real at 1:50.
