The Picks...

Iron Man 3

Release Date: May 3
Oh, Robert Downey Jr. ... You make such a phenomenally witty and debonair Tony Stark that it's hard to say no to another Iron Man movie. This time things get personal against terrorist the Mandarin. Picking Ben Kingsly to play the villainous lover of chaos was an excellent choice, and I'm sure he's going to nail it.

Star Trek Into Darkness

Release Date: May 17
Remember when J.J. Abrams' first Star Trek reboot flick came out and the nerd rage rained down upon him for making an entertaining movie with attractive young actors? Yeah, well that wasn't really a problem then, and it won't be for Into Darkness. While we will always love Jean-Luc Picard and can't help but respect the O.G. Kirk, the new cast is so great, while respecting the beloved roles they portray.
