Happy St. Patrick's Day kids.

While most of the world is out there, drinking green beer and being obnoxious, I'm sitting in the quite safety of my TV room streaming Marvel's latest Netflix offering, Iron Fist.

The show was savaged by the critics, but I don't think they get it.  The show has, so far, been enjoyable.

Iron Fist is a standard superhero origin story wrapped in chop socky mythology.  The character was created as a mid 70s homage to Bruce Lee movies.  Don't expect a lot of proselytizing.

Of course, Iron Fist isn't the only big media outing debuting today.

In fact, it hasn't even gotten the majority of the press this week.  That honor went to Disney's new live action retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

I have to say I think Disney's strategy of relaunching their classic animated movies as CGI-infused live action adventures.  Now that technology has caught up with the animators vision, it's time to take these franchises into the new century.

Cinderella was a great start.  Beauty and the Beast looks to continue the tradition.

And what better way to insure butts in seats than to cast everyone's favorite Hogwart's alum as Beauty.

Welcome back Emma Watson.  We've missed you.

Let's hit the links.
