Film Review

The Ottoman Lieutenant

Period romance is predictable but pretty

It’s no Doctor Zhivago, but in its own thrifty way, The Ottoman Lieutenant delivers polished, well-paced (if entirely predictable) costumed romance.

Iron Man 3

Robert Downey Jr. straps on the suit for one more super outing

If nothing else (and there’s plenty else), the record-breaking release of Iron Man 3 proves beyond a shadow of a doubt what last summer’s The Avengers already established: that Marvel has found a perfect way of translating its comic book universe to the big screen. While cross-town rival DC struggles to establish any movie franchise (other than Batman), Marvel has cranked out a string of films (Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers) which exist in the same interconnected universe. The ties may be strong or light from one film to the next, but this new wave of Marvel films does what no other movie series has managed.
