great flick

tuesday afternoon/early evening andy's sister called to say that she was getting the 'night off' and was thinking about going to see Iron Man and wanted to know if i could join her ... i posed the question to her brother and he said sure - he'd hurry home from his meeting and we could go to the 9:00 showing.


i kinda felt bad seeing it without him ... but i'd totally see it again! it was THAT good! all this time i have been thinking that Robert Downey Jr. had seen the last of his great rolls and that he was down and out ... but he did a fantastic job! he was witty, charming, slightly offensive (in the beginning) but overall believable and fun to watch! i was surprised when i saw Gwyneth Paltrow - i obviously didn't pay attention to the cast when i saw the trailer!

i'm no movie-buff and i certainly don't claim to know what makes a 'great' movie when it comes to awards and such ... but i LOVED this one and i'll see it a few more times!! wanna go with me?

really??? I would never have guessed it was worth my time. But I guess I won't shoot it down next time it is Chris's turn to pick at the movies.

I thought it was refreshing to see terrorists actually portrayed as the evil men they actually are instead of the typical hollywood "they are the REAL victims" garbage. Two thumbs way up!
