Iron Man 3 - Release Date May 3, 2013

I really enjoyed watching Iron Man... and now Broxton is obsessed with the Avengers, so I am happy to announce that there is a new Iron Man headed our way... 
Iron Man 3 will be released May 3, 2013

Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce & Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of “Tales of Suspense” (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with “The Invincible Iron Man” (#1) in May of 1968. 

In Marvel’s “Iron Man 3,” Tony Stark/Iron Man finds his world reduced to rubble by a malevolent enemy and must use his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him as he seeks to destroy the enemy and his cohorts.

High Energy - @NuclearCowboyz

The other day, we went to see the Nuclear Cowboyz Show at Phillips Arena.
I had never heard of Nuclear Cowboyz, but seeing that it was MotoCross, I knew it was going to be fun!!!
Broxton and I invited a friend of ours (another mother/son) and we went to see what Nuclear Cowboyz was all about!!!  Let me start by telling you this...
The Arena as Nuclear Cowboys prepares to start.  
As we walked in, there was all sorts of energy in the arena, I figured it was just the hustle/bustle from the show about to start, but it continued on..
All of a sudden, we heard the announcement that the show was about to start.
We missed the introduction of it all, but I heard something about supporting the military, so that made me smile!!!!  
Once we grabbed our seats, we were told the background of how the Soldiers of Havoc are against Metal Mulisha in the future .... This is set in Los Angeles...
The next part lost me a bit, as it had all this dancing, running and what not...
I was LOVING when the bikes were going, but the girls running around had me a bit lost as to what the purpose was.  I think it was just part of the Soldiers of Havoc / Metal Mulisha group... but I am not sure... I did see that everyone was getting into it, so maybe it was just something I missed...
The guys with the Lasers and the "bad lady"
At least that is what I gathered...
I will admit, the parts with the ladies dancing and running around had me paying little attention.  I noticed that during those times, Broxton was too busy looking around observing the other fans... but once the bikes came back out, it was all eyes on them!!!!  I do not know if it was because the story line was too mature for him or what, but he wasn't following it.

Either way, we LOVED the loud music, the explosion of the fireworks, the heat of the flames and all of the energy of the riders...   Would we go back?  For sure!!!!  Broxton had to tell everybody about it and my friend and I both enjoyed it!!!!
Broxton loved the loudness of the scene, but his friend thought it was too loud.  I did notice some kids had the noise cancelling earphones, but I did not think it was that loud...
I for sure think if you enjoy the high energy of things such as this, that you need to see the closest area that they will be to you... Head on out and enjoy the show!!!
As soon as I saw that it had people that were in the X-Games in the past, I knew I was going to love it!!
(I was right!)

Surf? True Story - Chasing Mavericks

We watched a great movie the other night... Marc enjoys surfing, so I thought it was a good one to ask him to watch with me... I will admit, I was a bit confused in the start...
Chasing Mavericks starts with a young boy and girl at the beach (8 years old) and then they ride home with a complete stranger... It was 1987 and both Marc and I could not figure out how the ride seemed SO LONG coming back home, yet they got there with no car?  Confusing... Then, it turned into 7 years later and he sees the neighbor that lives across the street... It was just odd that they literally lived across the street from each other and from the looks of the scene, they had not seen each other is 7 years... 

After that.. there is plenty of surfing and a great story line...
I really enjoyed watching the movie, but Marc wasn't as impressed with it as I was... Although the shots of the water were impressive to both of us!!!

I highly recommend this movie for those looking for a great movie to watch!!!

Chasing Mavericks
Chasing Mavericks is the inspirational true story of real life surfing phenom Jay Moriarity (played by newcomer Jonny Weston). When 15 year old Jay discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, is not only real, but exists just miles from his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson (played by Gerard Butler) to train him to survive it. As Jay and Frosty embark on their quest to accomplish the impossible, they form a unique friendship that transforms both their lives, and their quest to tame Mavericks becomes about far more than surfing.Chasing Mavericks was made with the help of some of the biggest names in the surfing world, and features some of the most mind-blowing real wave footage ever captured on film.
