Iron Man review
That's right. I saw the new IRON MAN movie, before it's release. And no, I didn't invite anyone. I am sorry. But me seeing it first allows me to tell you all that it was an awesome movie, so good that I want to see it again this weekend when it comes out! hells yeah! i thought it was a good 'check your brain at the door' movie with humor, a good story line, smarter than action movie dialogue, and great special effects. And i finally learned why Robert Downey Jr's a star. Now let me just say i saw this film with a real fan of the IRON MAN comic books and he gave the movie a modest B-, but well, if you're not expecting much (and honestly, who can with the magic babies trailer editors create from scraps of diarrhea nowadays), then you will be more than surprised. Not only did they get the suit right, the most important point to my comic book loving friend, but the script was really funny. And stuff exploded. And i don't have to clean up any mess afterwards. Hoo--ahhhh! Can I just say, there was so much testosterone in this movie, i was man hungry when i went in, and i came out sated. Pretty good for a single gal who is pretty sure the pants stayed on for 2 hours! And yes, I could go on and on about what made this movie good, but you're not looking for me to replace your Tivoed Ebert and Roper, so I'll just say this, repeating what i said earleir, I want to see it again this weekend. That's how good it is, seeing it twice in a weekend? wha???? and you all know how hard it is to rip a $10 out of my crazy tight grips.
