    The Best & Worst Moments Of 'Iron Man 3'

    If you were in prison, comatose or pinned to the ground by a fallen armoire this weekend, it's possible you didn't see "Iron Man 3."

But what of the seco...

    There are, apparently, people in the world who don't like the movies of Wes Anderson, who turns 44 today.

    "Big man in a suit of armor. Take that away then what are you?" asks Captain America (Chris Evans) in Joss Whedon's "The Avengers."
