Before he became synonymous with playing playboy millionaire rascal Tony Stark, Robert Downey Jr. was…a playboy millionaire rascal, but with an Oscar nomination! Born into minor Hollywood royalty, Downey spent his formative ’80s career as a Brat Pack honorary in films like Weird Science and The Pick-Up Artist. An Oscar nomination for playing the titular silent-era legend in Chaplin suggested a watershed moment for Downey and his future career. Read More here

Marvel released a new Avengers: Endgame featurette today that sees a few of the cast tease how high the stakes are going into what Brie Larson aptly describes as “the grand finale.” Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., certainly has faith in how surprising the storyline will be, too, as he’s confident fans won’t be able to second-guess what the Russo brothers have got planned for everyone.

IT’S hard to imagine a movie more 80s than Less Than Zero. Cold, aloof and all surface rather than content, it pretty much sums up the decade that humanity forgot in film form. Based, very loosely it must be said, on Brett Easton Ellis’s debut novel and sharing its name with a 1977 single by Elvis Costello, Less Than Zero is a movie about the desperate emptiness of Los Angeles life in that era of greed, drugs and escalating affluence.

It is entirely possible that we wouldn’t have Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were it not for a little movie called Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Shane Black’s deliriously dark action comedy not only reintroduced Robert Downey, Jr. to the movie scene, but it also defined Downey as a mercurial bad boy with a heart of gold…essentially setting him up to slide into the role of Tony Stark.

Some films are obviously Christmas movies, like The Polar Express and Scrooged, but for others it’s not so clear cut. They may be set during the holiday season, and they may even touch upon Christmas themes, but does that mean they truly qualify in the traditional sense? To find out, we’re putting these movies on trial and laying out all the evidence for and against them by answering some pertinent questions, like we did with Die Hard, Gremlins, and Edward Scissorhands. And after already examining if Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 deserves a permanent spot in the holiday rotation, there’s no better movie to enter into the great Christmas movie debate than his directorial debut, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

The summer of 2008 broke history, and rebuilt it. America suffered through a bitter presidential election on the road to a globewrecking financial crisis. In theaters, cinematic generations were rising — and falling. Superheroes, Will Smith, George Lucas, Guillermo del Toro, Emma Stone, Mike Myers, Sisterhoods and Step Brothers, Batman, and ABBA, adaptations of TV shows we still tweet about, new installments of movie franchises studios won’t stop rebooting: everything Hollywood was before, alongside everything it still is. In our weekly column Two Thousand Late, we’ll explore the big hits and curious flops from a summer that has never really ended. Next week: Summer ends and a new era dawns with The House Bunny. This week: critic at large Leah Greenblatt and TV critic Darren Franich on Tropic Thunder. Read More here

It was a sprawling, epic, and emotional roller coaster ride that had people laughing and tearing up and sometimes gasping in shock before breaking into applause — and that was just Robert Downey Jr.’s speech before Avengers: Infinity War. The actor who helped launch the Marvel Cinematic Universe a decade ago with the original Iron Man stood onstage at the new film’s premiere Monday night before dozens of his cast mates and told the crowd of thousands: “I gotta few words. Hope you all brought a bag lunch.” Read More here
