Old Apr 30th, 2008, 08:53 AM        Iron Man
I saw the sneak preview of Iron Man last night. Holy crap, what a way to start off the summer movie season! I think of all the Marvel-based movie series to come out in the last several years, it is by far the best franchise launcher. Robert Downey Jr. is perfectly cast, and Jeff Bridges and Terrence Howard were excellent in their roles. Even Gwyneth Paltrow was pretty good. The story was well-done, but parts of the movie seemed to drag. It could have been trimmed from its almost 2 hour running time to 90 minutes, but this is a pretty minor complaint.

As far as the action sequences, they are outstanding. The gadgets and weaponry on the suit are just badass, and the flight scenes were very cool. Even the CGI was pretty believeable for the most part: some scenes during the last battle relied on it a bit too much, but overall the animators did a good job. I won't spoil the ending, but I will say that it was a first for a superhero movie. Still not sure if that's a good or bad thing...I guess we'll see in 2-3 years when the sequel comes out (and there will be one--Iron Man will do EXTREMELY well over the next couple of weeks).

I give it a 4 out of a 6 pack. Go check it out!

You know, Iron Man will be in the upcoming Hulk flick, as well.

at this point, who doesn't know that? they're apparently making reference to the super soldier serum as well. after the Hulk movie, there'll be an Ant-Man movie and a Thor movie, and supposedly at the end of the Thor movie there'll be a reference to Cap. AVEGNERS ASSEMBLE!

I remember the old cap america, flash and daredevil movies from the 80's, left a bad taste in my mouth. The old hulk movies with Bill Bixby were sweet. Especially the one with Thor where they go to a bar and have a chug-a-lug contest.

If Marvel really does manage to produce a series of good movies, I'll be very happy. DC's been dominating Marvel in the movie department lately so it'd be nice if Marvel stepped it up cause aside from the first two x-men and spider-man movies, they've sucked pretty badly.

That being said, the upcoming justice league movie will probably be fucking horrible.

I've seen just about every other comic book based movie in the last few years and as such my expectations for this one are not very high.

I thought Tom Jane's Punisher was really good. Kind of looking forward to the Flash movie if Ryan Reynolds will play him.

Meh, I wasn't blown away. Marvel's just churning out so many superhero movies that you might as well make them their own freaking genre. Action, Comedy, Romance, and Superhero.

Not that it was bad. It's quite good, but it felt like it was just going through the motions. I wish it had more than two or three action scenes, though, cause that suit's totally boss.

First 2/3 of the movie was pretty cool.

Last 1/3 of the movie sucked horribly. The dialogue went to absolute shit for some reason.

TONNNNY!!!

COLLATERAL DAMAGE, TONYYYY


TONNY YOU'LL DIE


TONNYYYY


3/5 is how I'd rate this movie.

IMDB's stupid fucking headlines for this:

Moviegoers Turn 'Iron' Into Gold
'Iron Man' Is Marvelous For Marvel
Heavy Metal Plays Well At Box Office

I thought it was funny as hell. Looking way forward to the next one, and the avengers movies. I'd like to see Triple H play Thor, personally...

Yeah, too big. Maybe 1/3 of that would be small enough.

I think I'll just have to change it then. Downsizing would lose some of the detail. No matter.
