Picture this (pun intended) - Opening Day - IMAX - Noon - Four months in the planning! And there we were ... today ... watching Iron Man 2. And baby, it was just as good as the first one. Loved it.
Just based on the previews, I wasn't actually sure if Scarlett Johansson's character was good or bad, but I know now. I'm not going to tell you. I'm not going to tell you anything of substance at all. Nothing new you say? I can take it you critics you. Samuel L Jackson, Sam Rockwell, Gary Shandling, Jon Favreau, and Scarlett J. are all terrific in their respective good/bad guy roles. Don Cheadle does a really good job stepping into the shoes of Terrence Howard as Rhodey. Gwyneth Paltrow is, again, great as Pepper Potts. Mickey Rourke was great. And I don't care what anyone wants to say (you hush - H!) - I would watch anything Mickey is in - I think he's awesome and am so he's back.
And of course Robert....aaahhh, Robert Downey Jr. This man is the perfect triple threat - a genius actor, cute as a bug, and so smoking hot sexy he can steam up my glasses at the very thought of him. Oh and he's so, so, so good as Tony Stark.
I think it goes without saying that this is a must see...several times...hmmm.
