Yeah...I can fly.

Listening to: 'Back In Black' by AC/DC [Back In Black]

Oh. My. God. The movie finished two hours ago and I'm still buzzing. It's been a while since a movie had that effect on me. I'm hoping that blogging will quieten me down so I can get to bed, but I suppose playing 'Back In Black' on repeat isn't really helping!

I generally love superhero movies. Apart from the shite that was Fantastic Four (I refuse to watch the sequel). I'm sorry...granted, Jessica Alba and Chris Evans are both extremely easy on the eye, but they can't act for shit. And what a waste of Julian McMahon?! But back to the good stuff. Yes I love superhero movies. I grew up watching the Superman movies, and absolutely love the Spidey and X-Men trilogies. But tonight it's all about Tony Stark...a.k.a. Iron Man.

I won't give any spoilers 'cos I think everyone should go and see it for themselves, but I'll comment on a few things:

To say that Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark is sexy would be a huge understatement. Something about him - the attitude, the intelligence, the body - oozes sex appeal. He is the quintessential bad boy. Luscious!

The next best thing about the the suit. Yes I am an engineer, so excuse me while I drool. I just sat there going "omg it's so cool"...I'm sure the guy next to me thought I was nuts.

Oh and Gwenyth Paltrow is so pretty. Big up the skinny girls, y'all!

The dialogue was good, the jokes were witty and worked well thanks to the excellent delivery, and the CGI was seamless. The romance was frustrating for a chick-flick lover such as myself, but the quantity was just right to keep interest up for the sequel (which will be in can I wait that long?!?!). And the music was well-suited. All in all, I can't really find anything wrong with the movie. Although maybe that's 'cos I was too busy drooling to notice ;-)

Right. I think I have sufficiently calmed down. I shall now hit the sack, and hopefully dream about Dr Christian Troy and Tony Stark fighting over me who is the most delectable quadragenarian in Hollywood. Mmmmm.


  1. 2010?!! Nooo!

    I *LOVED* the movie, and yes like you I was spellbound by the suit, it is so freakin badass. I want one!

    Oh and RD Jr is very easy on the eyes. That goes without saying.

  2. Well yeah, that's if Wikipedia's anything to go by. I'm gonna have to buy the DVD to keep me going until then!

    As for the suit, yeah I want one too! Although preferably with RD Jr in it ;-)


Speak now, or forever hold your peace (well not really)!
