This is the week when "Iron Man 3" likely meets its match. J.J. Abrams is out with the sequel to his "Star Trek" reboot of a few years ago. Hap Erstein with PalmBeachArtsPaper.com reviews that one and other new movies.
"Star Trek: Into Darkness" - Star Trek: Into Darkness is the latest action packed thriller from JJ Abrams. The second movie in the new Star Trek franchise left Hap entertained but yearning for more.
"The Ice Man" - Hap warns this movie is not for those with weak stomachs as it is based on the true story of a contract killer. The Ice Man welcomes back to the big screen Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta and David Schwimmer, with Michael Shannon in the lead role.

An event is being held this weekend to benefit the son of a longtime employee of the Palm Beach County School District.
The 360 Bikers Foundation, a non-profit, is holding a poker run on Saturday, to help pay the medical bills incurred by Andrew Camerino. His father, Ernie, works in the HR department. Here is Andrew's story and details on the event from organizers:
Andrew Camerino was a young man like many we know. Healthy. Working. Smart. A good kid. Out of the blue he is struck down at the age of 26 by a stroke and aneurysm. Left nearly helpless, he is fortunate to have his family insurance to get him through this tough time... for awhile.
Then, the insurance company removes his insurance because of his age and he is left with nothing but the love of family and friends. It could happen to anyone. It is not a good thing. That is why we help.
Our starting location is The Fulton-Holland Educational Services Center (School District Headquarters) at 3300 Forest Hill Blvd.
You don't have to be on a motorcycle to participate! Cagers (people in 4-wheel vehicles) are definitely welcome. The purpose is to raise money to help Andrew.
