Interview: Jon Favreau on Swingers, Friends, Iron Man and Chef

Interview: Jon Favreau on Swingers, Friends, Iron Man and Chef
This may not have escaped your attention, but I like films. I also like food, which definitely hasn't escaped your attention. I've loved the work of Jon Favreau ever since Swingers got me out of a five-year relationship slump, so you can imagine my delight when I learned of Chef: a film about food, written by, directed by and starring Jon Favreau. On the surface it's about sandwiches, but it's really all about getting back to your roots; for Favreau, it's a return to the style which made Swingers so beloved by proto-hipsters like myself. When given the chance to interview Jon, I practically bit his hand off. Because I was hungry. Hungry for journalism. And sandwiches.

Christmas Playlist: The Best Of 2013
It's Christmas, apparently, not that you'd notice. So here's The Shiznit's present to you: a shiny Spotify playlist of the best bits of movie music from 2013. It was that or a PS4, but we knew you'd rather have the chance to listen to the Iron Man Three theme again than receive the world's most advanced games console for free.

Serious corner: Why nostalgia is stunting Hollywood's growth
Yeah, this is a long one. If you want a TL;DR, then I guess I can sum up this article by saying 'Wah wah waah'. Also spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness and Iron Man 3.

Review: Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3
Just how do you follow The Avengers? Surely going back to single-hero stories after that huge-scale monster blockbuster just seems like a disappointing step backwards? God, Marvel have really dug themselves a billion-dollar hole, haven't they? I bet they’ve been puzzling over what to do next while using a solid-gold, diamond-encrusted head scratcher. Well, it's lucky for them that, as with phase one of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, this next chapter is being led by the shiniest instrument in their toolbox: Robert Downey Jr (who outshines even the most polished of Iron Man suits). And, with Shane Black in charge, we get more Downey Jr than ever before in what is not only the best Tony Stark film to date, but also Marvel's most mature output yet.

We're not allowed to unleash our Iron Man 3 - sorry, IRON MAN THREE - review until tomorrow, but I don't think anyone at IM PR HQ will pop a sprocket if we reveal that Brian Tyler's end credits music is BER-RILLIANT. Here be proof.

The 50 very worst YouTube user comments on the Iron Man 3 trailer
Like you, and five million others, I enjoyed the new Iron Man 3 UK trailer earlier this week. Unlike you, I ventured deep into the subterranean nightmare that is the YouTube comments section to try and gauge the real public reaction. Spoiler alert: everyone is idiots.

8 ways The Avengers can appear in Iron Man 3 (without appearing)
"Nothing's been the same since New York" says Tony Stark in the first trailer for Iron Man 3, before having a very bad day. With the arrival of a new trailer this week it doesn't look like his situation has improved much - so why aren't his Avenger superfriends lending a hand? Writer-director Shane Black has probably got this covered, but just in case he missed Avengers Assemble at the cinema, here are some ways Thor, Hulk and co. can be shoe-horned into the film at short notice without having to assemble the expensive cast!
