IRON MAN: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
With the big political waiting game going on, I am going to give a short movie review. I am not big on movies. I am rarely entertained and have been known to sleep through some blockbusters. When I see a movie that kept me awake I like to share the joy. I saw Iron Man with my family this week-end and honestly it was one of the best movies I have ever seen. I would see it again and pay money and not sneak in. I have never been a fan of Robert Downey Jr., but he surprised me and I have to say I am a born-again fan. He was funny and charismatic and did a great job. He seemed to be miscast at first but he grew on me very quickly and I see this as a role he will play for a very long time. Some other big names were Gwenyth Paltrow and Jeff Bridges. Both were excellent. So if you are bored this week go see this great movie and be dazzled! It even had some evil terrorists like the good old days of the cold war to help the Rambo's of the world kick some enemy booty! Take a lighter for a little Black Sabbath at the end. LOVED IT!
