Iron Man dir. by


  1. I am glad you enjoyed it. I know I've liked Robert Downy, Jr. in other movies before Kiss, Kiss but I am not sure that I considered him a great actor. I do know that since Kiss, Kiss I do. Maybe it is maturity based on his experiences or directors casting him in the right roles for him or a combination of that and many other factors, but whatever it is he is a joy to watch. This film wasn't perfect, few superhero films are, but it was as close to perfect as I need my superhero films to be and that is in large part to his acting and Favreau's vision for the film.

  2. When will we have enough superhero films? At what point will our society be surfeited with masked, conflicted heroes and anti-heroes, haunted by their past? Iron Man sounds like a punch-alike of Batman. Rich geezer decides to put his wealth to baddie ass-kicking uses. I bet he has nightmares, too. But all superhero films are essentially the same story, which has precious little dramatic potential to begin with. Sigh.

  3. hooray! i know i've said this too many of your film reviews, but i really hope i get to see this. payday is wednesday, which also happens to be orange in colour. so here's hoping…!

    (you know, i haven't seen a film at the movies for 2 years now… :( )

  4. You wannabe cynic Mal. There can never be enough superheroes out there. They are all metaphors for stuff afterall, and stuff will never stop.

    2 years JP? Two whole years! me = speechless

  5. Just bought Kiss Kiss Bang Bang today for 4 Euro. I'm a bit scared to watch it in case it's not as good as I remember. I do love a good/metaphorical super hero movie and if RDJ is in it, all the better. There were some incredibly funny lines in it too

  6. Mal, but then what about the "look, people flying" coolness? You need superheroes for that sort of malarkey.

    I really need to buy Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, loved it when I saw it in the cinema, but that was years ago at this stage :)
