Dir: Jon Favreau
I really enjoyed Iron Man and I love Mr. Downey Jr. and I think Jon Favreau is so very adorable. All positives, so I’m guessing you can all feel the but coming. I’m going to keep you waiting, for a little while at least, because Iron Man 2 is a really fun film. And the effects are great. I enjoyed all the roles, Downey is great as Stark, he pulls off the role of ass-hole multi-millionaire while at the same time he is an engaging character. And all the supporting cast, while they aren’t asked to do a huge amount, do their jobs well.

Writ: Jane Goldman & Matthew Vaughn based on the graphic novel by Mark Millar & John Romita Jr.
With all the people out there who love comic books, with all those millions of people who love superheroes, why hasn’t anyone ever tried it. That’s what Dave Lizewski wonders. It isn’t that he thinks it is sensible, but surely it stands to reason that someone, somewhere will try it? Or has tried it? Well, why not him. So he goes online and buys a scuba diving suit, and low and behold, Kick-ass is born. Things do not go well for him. He’s a weedy teenager out on his own trying to fit the bad guys. He gets his ass kicked, on more than one occasion, but he also gets famous. And comes to the attention of Big Daddy and Hit-Girl, two real superheroes who know enough about their job to keep themselves totally secret. Did I mention that Hit-Girl is like eleven or something?

So y’all know that I luuurve James Purefoy, mainly because he was so great as Mark Anthony in Rome, but also so adorable in A Knight’s Tale so of course I was predisposed to like this. Then again I wasn’t too impressed with Vanity Fair so it doesn’t always follow that actors I like = good films.
