Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week:
"Iron Man 3"
What's It About? Directed by Shane Black ("Lethal Weapon 2"), the third installment of the "Iron Man" franchise follows Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) as his world is torn apart by the terrorist the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). When Stark's family life is affected by the evil villain, he embarks on a journey to find out who is responsible.
Why We're IN: "Iron Man 3," Moviefone's #1 movie of 2013 so far, is different from its two predecessors in that it shows a new, vulnerable side of Tony Stark we'd yet to see. Filled with more serious emotion rarely found in superhero films, this third installment was a refreshing and much needed surprise to the genre.

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week:
"3 Films by Roberto Rossellini Starring Ingrid Bergman: 'Stromboli - Terra Di Dio' | 'Europe '51' | 'Journey to Italy'" (Criterion Collection)
​What's It About? In 1950's "Stromboli - Terra Di Dio" Ingrid Bergman plays Karen who escapes a prison camp only to suffocated by her relocation to a village threatened by a volcano. In 1952's "Europe '51" Bergman plays a wealthy socialite who volunteers to help the poor due to her grief over her son's recent death. In 1954's "Journey to Italy" Bergman and George Sanders play a rich couple whose relationship declines as they travel a countryside.
Why We're IN: All three films chart the collaboration between Hollywood's Bergman and the Italian auteur, a film relationship which soon crossed over with a real life one. Unfortunately their infamous love-affair-turned-marriage overshadowed their films, which deserved much more acclaim. All three films tell complex and emotional stories about a woman in postwar Italy while with rich visuals. All memorable films, but "Journey" is undoubtedly Rossellini's masterpiece work.
