At the movies: Now showing
Showtimes: 12:30, 4:15 and 8 p.m. Friday through Thursday at Skyline Cinema in Dillon.The clothes! The shoes! The magical depiction of Manhattan and the promise of finally finding true romance! Its like porn for women. And we havent even gotten to the sex part of the Sex and the City movie yet. Fans will be thrilled to see their old friends Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha back together and on the big screen, which makes it easier to ogle what theyre wearing, of course. Everyone else? Well, they never watched the HBO series and if they did, they didnt get it. Or theyre heterosexual men. But writer/director Michael Patrick King and producer/star Sarah Jessica Parker certainly know their audience: the devotees whove already reserved group tickets for opening weekend, which theyll celebrate in high style, complete with the requisite Cosmopolitan consumption and needless shopping sprees. In that regard, this hotly awaited follow-up to the hit TV show, which ended in 2004, is a success; this is one of those movies you have to assess in terms of whom its aiming to please. When Parkers Carrie announces that she and Mr. Big (Chris Noth) are finally tying the knot, it brings the friends back together: Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Samantha (Kim Cattrall). Surprisingly, despite its obsession with all things Manolo Blahnik, Sex and the City also has its share of tearjerker moments. Parker has become such a fashion icon over the past decade that you forget she really can act, and is capable of visceral, heart-tugging vulnerability. And not to say too much, but she does get plenty of opportunities to display that side of her talent especially with a running time thats well past two hours. R for strong sexual content, graphic nudity and language. Rated R for violence/terror and language. 142 min.

Showtimes: 12:45, 3:45, 6:45 and 9:45 p.m. Friday through Thursday at Skyline Cinema in Dillon.Much of the allure here comes from the fact that we are indeed talking about a man a real man who has lived a life and made mistakes and experienced regret not some scrawny, teenage boy who received his superhero powers through a bite from a radioactive spider. No offense to Spidey, the Marvel Comics hero whos already provided billion-dollar summer blockbuster fodder. But theres just something more relatable about Tony Stark, even though hes a playboy industrialist of staggering wealth and arrogance. And in the hands of Robert Downey Jr., hes absolutely riveting. Downey may have seemed an unlikely casting choice at first, but its difficult to imagine any other actor in the role; hes so quick-witted and he makes such inspired decisions with dialogue that, at times, might have seemed corny otherwise. Throughout his eclectic career hes always been capable of both great charisma and vulnerability, and both are on display in this, the biggest movie of his life. Iron Man is also a blast the perfect start to the summer with its shiny mix of visual effects, elaborate set pieces and humor. This is also the biggest movie of director Jon Favreaus life, and he juggles all the complicated, expensive toys deftly. Downeys Tony is abducted by insurgents while demonstrating his weapons companys latest missile to the U.S. military in Afghanistan. While in captivity, hes ordered to reconstruct the missile but instead creates a suit of armor and becomes a weapon himself. 126 min.
