Went to see Iron Man tonight and, as expected, it was awesome! A review will be posted by our own Wordslinger, so be on the lookout for it soon.
Just wanted to warn you all to stay put until after the film’s end credits have finished, because there’s an extra scene.
I don’t want to go into anymore detail, because if this is the first you’re hearing of this extra scene, that means you haven’t read all of the spoilers about it yet.
Trust me, just stay in your seat!
Ok, if you MUST know, see the SPOILER at the end of this post.
After seeing the movie, I can say: 1) way to make a comeback Robert Downey, Jr.!; 2) starting off a movie with an AC/DC song is one way to hook me in immediately; 3) Jon Favreau, you sir, are officially trustworthy; 4) Shaun Toub, oh the things you can do with a car battery — if I’m ever in captivity, I’d want you to be there to have my back; 5) Gwyneth Paltrow, bravo for a performance that made me forget that you’re only in it for the paycheck; 6) Terrence Howard, sorry, but aside from your one foreshadowing line, I just wasn’t feeling you; 7) Jeff Bridges, thank you for not Nick Nolte-ing your role — you were totally badass!; and 8) Clark Gregg, you are my new favorite “Hey, I know that guy. Where do I know that guy?” guy.
