Captain's Log, Stardate 11.12.2008

I realize I’m late in posting this, but I just saw Ironman a couple weeks ago and it was FABULOUS! It was the most entertaining movie I’ve seen in a long time. I even liked it better than Mr. and Mrs. Smith (although that flick is a close second).

I think because the acting was great. Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow were fantastic. I especially liked how the Pepper character is an older woman with more maturity than, say, MaryJane in Spiderman. Pepper was strong, intelligent, and relatively cool under fire.

And did you guys catch the Easter Egg at the end of the credits??? Awesome!!!


  1. I totally loved IronMan. And it beat Mr. and Mrs. Smith in my book as well. And I'm a big fan of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, too!

    We saw it in the theater and then when it was out on DVD I ran out and got it opening day and watched it again. I love Robert Downey Jr's snarky comments. I laughed my head off.

    Easter Egg at the end of the credits?? Ok, missed that, gonna have to check it out now.

    Have a great day.

  2. I saw this movie back this summer when I was in Korea. It was in English but had Korean subtitles. One of the girls bought a copy (probably an illegal copy since those are everywhere in Korea) and I borrowed it one day because I was bored. I didn't much care for it though - I couldn't get into it. I seem to be the odd one out because lots of people I know have seen it and loved it. Oh well, we all have our own tastes :o).

  3. Robert Downey Jr., was awesome. Thats all I can say. :)

  4. IronMan was very good! We saw it for the first time a couple weeks ago too. But have you heard the controversy for IronMan II?

  5. I haven't seen it yet, which is odd for me because I LOVE comic-book movies!

    Looking forward to it. With any luck I'll get to it before the second one comes out... :)

  6. i just watched ironman myself last week. loved it! i was telling my fiance it's different from spiderman because it's more realistic, this suit could actually happen, the villian could actually happen. it's not cartoony. and way to go for RDJ to resurrect his career. you totally forget about those mug shot pictures lol. my roommate in college had such a huge crush on him. looking forward to the sequel and possible avengers movie! i'm such a nerd.

  7. I enjoyed Iron Man too. Robert Downey Jr. was too sexy. I've always liked his acting. Good to see him play the good guy.

  8. I wonder what the controversy is about Ironman 2?
