Ironman

Posted: May 2, 2008 in crossings, friends, my experiences, tv & movies

My small group went to see Ironman last night, 9:30pm, at Regal Pinnacle in Turkey Creek.  Believe me, we debated long and hard….study chapters 13 & 14 of Zechariah, or go see Ironman?  Our leader dutifully tried to steer us toward the study, but the movie prevailed.  John had to work late – until 9:00pm – so we determined we could all get there early, buy tickets, and have one ready for him when he got there from work. 

Very entertaining movie.  I know nothing about Ironman, the comic character.  Nothing.  And had absolutely no idea what to expect from the movie.  Probably would not have gone to see it if we weren’t going as a group.  But it was pretty sweet.  Robert Downy, Jr pulled off a comic hero role quite impressively, the special effects were really really good, and the story line was pretty creative.  Actually, I’d put it right behind Batman (Christian Bale or Michael Keaton Batmen only – none of that Val Kilmer or George Clooney crap) as my favorite comic movies.  A very close third would be X-Men…then Spiderman…then falling pretty far behind would be (in a dismal tie) Daredevil, Hulk, Fantastic Four, and any others that came out I can’t remember and most certainly did not see. 

Anyone else craving Salsarita’s?  Better question, does anyone else (like me) pretty much always crave Salsarita’s?

    I agree, it rocked, Ironman suprised me with how good it was.
    Did you see the preview for the new Hulk? I wanna see that.

  4. Jason says:

    Yeah, it actually looked watchable. Had no desire to ever see the previous Hulk movie, but this one could be good.

    Iron Man was practically flawless as a super hero flick; it drops pretty obvious hints that would indicate a sequel as well… i’m thinking the next one should be equally great

  6. Jason says:

    yeah, i agree. it had the human element, great action, actual believability, a pretty good villian…and there will definitely be a sequal. i’m hearing it will be out in about a year.

    I quite enjoyed the CGI, as I did not notice it at all!
