Iron Man

Awesome! Saw it yesterday afternoon..

Long movie (a littel over two hours) but good - graphics are awesome, especially when Stark dons the suit. Downy Jr. does a good job of playing the womanizer and somewhat arrogant Tony Stark before his change of mind..

Critics have good things to say as well..

Go see it..

Going to see this Ironman my old man. Trailers look good.

Then it's Indiana Jones!!

Frickin top banana.

Dad took me to see the first one when I was 5 and we've seen all of them since.

It better be good or I'll get doomsday on Lucas and Spielberg's asses!

Read some reviews...apparently Captain America's might be squashed because of a lack of International appeal for an American Superhero...next one's due up are Nick Fury, Ant Man, Avengers, and Thor.

Marvel also needs to convince investors it can deliver a steady stream of product. Despite a deep reservoir of characters, it plans on releasing only two titles per year.


I haven't been to the movies for years ( with the exception I took the girl's to see Shrek 2 ).

Iron Man was Marvel Studios first foray into producing movies - and they hit a home run with this one..

Going back to see it Tuesday night.. Can't wait..

I can't wait for this one as well - saw the official trailer at the theater when waiting for Iron Man to begin - awesome!

What I find amazing is that Harrison Ford still looks like he did years ago in the first three - looks like he hasn't aged a bit but he's what, 60 some years old now?

Ahhh, but he doesn't look a day over 60!

I'm just glad they got Ford to do it and not try to give the role to someone else to play Indiana OR call it Indiana Jones but it's really all about his kid or something..

^ True

Wait till Ford retires and it's Indiana Jones Jr with Shia LaBeouf.

There was a hint in one of the Sunday papers that Ford might do more than just this one.

Edit from IMDB

To reprise his role as the legendary explorer Indiana Jones, the 64-year-old Harrison Ford spent three hours a day at the gym, and subsisted on a high-protein diet of fish and vegetables, thus building his body into a condition where he could perform his own stunts (he always kept himself fit anyway, as he hoped to complete all the five Indiana Jones films that were originally planned in the 1980s). Steven Spielberg later stated he was so impressed with Ford's form that he could not tell the difference between the shoots for the third and fourth films.

Looking forward to Iron Man and the new Indy.

Geez, sheepherder, you were 5 when you saw your first Indy???? Dang! Makes me realize how young you are.

Iron Man was pretty good. Loved the character. I can't remember from the comics if anyone actually knew his true identity though. The ending made me susspicious.

Ant-Man? Don't know and don't care. I never liked Thor at all, but bring on Nick Fury--awesome. Personally I'd like to see Dr. Strange get his time, but that would be very difficult to do within the span of a singular film.

I agree on Dr. Strange...and/or Dr. Fate...two of my personal favorites were The Spectre, and Sgt. Rock and Easy Company...

don't get the Ant Man thing either...never was a popular character...maybe it has a huge overseas fan base?
