Iron Man

What I loved about Iron Man :

Robert Downey, Jr. *sigh* as the suave, smart Tony Stark.

Humor that was perfectly placed and became part of the action.

The coolest super hero suit ever.

Bad guys that got what was coming to them.

Gwyneth Paltrow playing a smart, light role as Stark's assistant, Pepper Potts. (in kick-ass high heels)

A story that explains the origin of Iron Man and sets up adventures to come.

I was hoping you'd review this one today . . . I generally don't get that excited about Comic book movies, but I really want to see this one (mostly for Downey).

I should be able to catch it this weekend, and am also angling for "Forgetting Sarah Marshall."

2D~ So many times during Iron Man, I thought, "this is such a good drama". Downe really delivers. The action is almost a bonus. Well worth seeing, so is Sarah Marshall. Enjoy!

Ah, a comic book movie for grown ups. Maybe the kids will be sore about that, but heck, they get summers off and don't have to worry about a mortgage!

Toto~A little boy sitting in my row sounded like he was having a blast!

Dianna~I first noticed him in Wonder Boys, and always cheered on his rehab. I think Ally McBeal revived his career nicely, the guy is so talented. Look forward to more from him.
