Iron Man 2…The Summer Blockbuster Season is here.

Posted in Movies, Superhero Movies with tags , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

Oh and AC/DC is rocking the soundtrack

Summer is Blockbuster Season, that is no secret. But with the release of IRON MAN 2 Marvel studios is putting into motion perhaps the most ambitious Super Hero franchise of all time “THE AVENGERS”

This series will encompass multiple heroes , each with their own individual platform franchises and then the super umbrella franchise being “THE AVENGERS” proper.

Captain America, Thor, Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk (just for starters ) will each have their own films, and they join forces for the über blockbuster “Avengers”

Pulling this together for Marvel is no easy task and actors had to commit to participate in as many as 9 total films to gain the coveted roles that will turn the likes of CHRIS EVANS “Captain America” into household names.

Chris Evans is Captain America

But all the real action starts tonight with Iron Man 2, The brilliant billionaire Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is back and let’s be honest, by far the coolest super hero alter ego ever.

Tony Stark

And I am quite sure we will see hints of   “The Avengers”  franchise throughout “Iron Man 2”

Lets just say I know where I will be tonight.

Saints Win

Tonight was a great night not only for Football fans everywhere but also a great night for America and of course most importantly the city of New Orleans.  Hurricane Katrina was a real American tragedy that will be discussed and debated for years to come. Americans looks at the tragedy in Haiti and as terrible as it is , it still feels distant. Katrina happened right here in our backyard, an event most proud Americans could never have dreamt would happen within the borders of our great Nation. BUT…It did happen and the city has been rebuilding ever since.

The Superbowl is arguably the biggest single day sporting event in the world and with the media spotlight back on the N.O. this team rose to the occasion , and put the city on its back and the Saints faithful rode Drew Brees, Jeremy Schockey and Reggie Bush all the way to the Super Bowl Championship and gave the wonderful city of New Orleans something to brag about and cherish forever..They Certainly DESERVE IT!!

This is why I LOVE AMERICA!!

Super Bowl Sunday Stuffed Shells!!

Posted in Superhero Movies with tags on February 7, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

Today is the day of the big game, and also the one day out of the year where I break out my signature (and perhaps my only) gourmet dish: My Super Bowl Sunday Stuffed Shells. This is an old secret RONZONI family recipe passed down from the side of the pasta box directly to me. But seriously the shells are a great addition to any Superbowl party. For my dedicated readers you can find the recipe below…YOUR WELCOME!!

Now as far as the game goes, my heart is the New Orleans (If any city needs a lift its the N.O) , but my mind says Peyton and The Colts will take the game > Colts Win 34 – 31!

Superbowl Sunday Stuffed Shells


1 pound ground beef
1 large onion chopped
1 clove garlic chopped, to taste
8 ounces mozzarella cheese shredded
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 each egg
1 x salt to taste
1 x black pepper to taste
1 x parsley leaves to taste
1 x oregano to taste
18 each pasta shells, jumbo
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup parmesan, parmigiano-reggiano cheese, grated grated


Brown ground meat, onion and garlic.

Drain and cool.

Cook shells in boiling water about 15 minutes, drain.

Into meat mixture, stir in mozzarella cheese, bread crumbs, egg and seasonings.

Spread 1/4 of the jar of sauce into a baking dish Stuff the shells with the meat mixture and place in dish on top of sauce.

Pour remaining sauce over the stuffed shells and sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.

Cover with foil and bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.

Freezing instructions: I have frozen this dish several times with success.

Use the foil pans for this or put foil in your baking dish before the sauce and assembling shells.

You can cook the shells then cool and freeze; thaw and reheat at 350 Degrees till heated through

You can also freeze the stuffed shells before cooking, then thaw and cook as directed.

The only thing I have noticed when freezing is that you may need to add more sauce over the top.

The Green Lantern shapes up!!

The Green Lantern Update!!


This was a big week for the casting of Warner Bros and DC Comics’ Green Lantern, the next great hope for the comic book publisher to take on their main competitor, Marvel. First, Blake Lively (Gossip Girl) was cast as Carol Ferris. Ferris is the aerospace industry executive that is Hal Jordan’s (Ryan Reynolds) boss when he first is given the power ring that makes him the new Green Lantern of Sector 2814 (which includes Earth). In the comics, Ferris also eventually becomes Star Sapphire, the latest woman to wield a purple gem that gives her powers similar to those of a Green Lantern (although that title was also held by other characters, and is not Carol Ferris’ only distinction). Next up was Peter Sarsgaard (Boys Don’t Cry, Jarhead), who has been cast as Hector Hammond, who gains psychic powers when he encounters a strange meteor. Hammond’s background is also being changed from the comics (where he was just a petty criminal) to being a pathologist and the son of a senator who sees him as a disappointment. The trades referred to Hammond as “the villain” of Green Lantern, but that doesn’t mean that Hal’s most famous villain won’t be in the movie; Hitfix is reporting that Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, the upcoming Nightmare on Elm Street remake) is still Warner Bros’ “only choice” to play Sinestro. What may be the distinction is that Sinestro may not begin as a villain (just like how Carol Ferris has a background other than eventually becoming Star Sapphire), but as a fellow Green Lantern, as he was in the comics, before eventually switching to a yellow power ring that has extra power against green lantern rings. Green Lantern starts filming in Louisiana in March, aiming for a release on June 17, 2010.
