Who’s Who in Iron Man 3: The Arc Reactor

This comes from an awesome infographic on Wired's Site RESEARCH BY ALAN KISTLER
In the upcoming film Iron Man 3, Robert Downey Jr. reprises the role of Tony Stark, brilliant technologist turned armored superhero, to battle the terrorist cult leader known as the Mandarin. But this isn’t just the latest in a wave of superhero adaptations from Marvel Studios. Events have been building to this moment ever since Tony was forced to create a sophisticated suit of armor out of scraps in a cave. Understandably, it can be a little confusing at times trying to keep track of who’s who and how characters relate to one another in this fictional universe that spans not just three movies, but a whole Marvel Cinematic universe connecting various film franchises. But have no fear. Here’s a handy infographic to help you brush up and explore the relationships between Iron Man’s many super-heroic allies and fearsome foes.

Tony Stark (Iron Man)

Former CEO of Stark Industries, a prodigy who created his first robots and A.I. programs when he was a teenager. A kidnapping left him with deadly injuries and the knowledge of how dangerous his weapons were. To save his life and become a hero, he developed the Iron Man armor (Iron Man). Along with his own activities, he is a consultant to SHIELD (Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk) and an Avenger (Avengers). On at least one occasion, he attempted to duplicate Captain America’s invincible shield (Iron Man, Iron Man 2). Tony has developed a kinship with fellow scientist and Avenger Dr. Bruce Banner (Avengers). Continue Reading

A Far Cry From A Good Game

ku-xlargeFar Cry 3 is stupid.

Well, before I get ahead of myself, let me preface that.  I am not a very good gamer.  Also, I didn’t finish Far Cry 3. Because, Far Cry 3 is stupid. The stupidity starts early.  Fire the game up, select a difficulty, load up a new campaign…and wait.  While you’re waiting, you’ll enjoy a barrage of half formed images barely coming into focus and poorly associated word pairs flash across the screen.  Pokemon seizures meet 4:20.

yay_no_more_respawning_checkpointsLike I said, Far Cry 3 is stupid.

The developers tout the fact that they’ve immersed our hero (whatever his name is) in a world larger and more…immersive…than the previous games.  Sea turtles swim through the surf, fully self aware, making decisions to avoid dangers while pondering the existential links between recursion and genius within Godel, Escher, Bach (it won a Pulitzer, go look it up!).  In reality, they contribute to the mindless chaos of stupid.  To be honest, living in Florida and having a crippling fear of sharks (yes, even virtual Jaws) prevented me from spending too much time with the turtles.  However, if they were half as stupid as their terrestrial comrades, they wouldn’t know the difference between a hungry bull shark and something to eat.  More on this later.

China’s growing importance to Hollywood: Tom Cruise, Joss Whedon, and other industry heavyweights weigh in

The next time the Avengers assemble on the big screen, don’t be surprised if you see them touch down at some point in China. Given the rapid, almost Hulk-like growth of the film market in that country over the past few years, Avengers director Joss Whedon is half-expecting to get a call any day now asking whether he can set part of the superhero sequel in a Chinese locale. “I’m working on the script right now, and if someone came to me and said, ‘We’re looking into doing a chunk of this in China’—well, I’d have to think about it,” Whedon says. “China is on my radar. It can’t not be at this point.” Continue Reading

The Impact of One Television Show

by PACMedia
BuffyOn March 10, 1997, the first episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired on the WB channel. I don’t remember what day it aired on because it changed to different nights throughout its television career. No matter the day, my mom, my brother, and I would sit in a room together to watch Buffy conquer vampires and other supernaturals while slaying those pesky homework assignments. I was in sixth grade at the time. My mom had moved my brother and I into her boyfriend’s house because we were forced to move out of our previous house. Long story short, my dad didn’t pay the monthly mortgage, so we had to live elsewhere. I was in a new house that was thirty minutes away from my private school. Junior high was turning out to be this horrible part of the education system where I didn’t get to play the playground with my friends anymore. It was now all work and no play because my friends were now busier and more importantly I couldn’t relate to my fellow peers. This is where BVS comes into play. I could relate to Buffy, Willow, and Xander’s butting heads with high school. I wasn’t liking Junior high too much. It seemed like it only to became worse each year. I could relate to being demeaned by my peers because I didn’t follow society’s standard or in Cordelia’s case, her standard. My school believed in a Christian based faith. It taught almost an hour of Bible every day. There was a definite standard to follow. I was far from following it. I wasn’t excited about who I liked or what boy band was trending. I was excited about Vampires and other dead things. I had a hole in my heart from many things and I wanted to fill it with something tangible. Buffy killed vampires. She won over evil. Just when we think she is done for, she surprises us. I wanted to be someone whose courage and passion surprised them when they least expected it.

Seeing forgiveness, friendship, and love in this show taught me the things my parents, teachers, & peers couldn’t or wouldn’t teach me. Buffy hugs
