H aving successfully subsidized world peace, Tony Stark has now become more of a supersized three-ring circus in "Iron Man 2," and that's the crux of this sequel in a nutshell. Aside from nifty special effects, the original film had star Robert Downey Jr.'s sly, offbeat humor at its core. It was more than just the sum of its techno wizardry and explosions — there was a real sense of fun. There is still fun to be found in "IM2" — just few and far between. As Stark wannabe Justin Hammer, Sam Rockwell is stupidly funny.

Jon Favreau was right - it's an exceptionally bad idea to watch "Chef" on an empty stomach. Slow-cooked cured meats, golden-brown grilled cheese sandwiches, sugar-sprinkled beignets and undeniably delicious-looking Cuban sandwiches drew murmurs of appreciation from all who watched his latest project Thursday.

Now Piper is grounded, so to speak.

T he Daily Pilot Cup, the youth soccer tournament, was at its biggest in its 11th year. The soccer extravaganza in Costa Mesa featured 201 teams representing 30 schools.
