Oh yes... Loved that movie. I must have watched it 50 times in the months after it initially came out.

I have The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sitting on my computer currently. It is next on my list.

An exciting, fun ride right up until the last "boss" fight. As a comic fan I got a boner whenever Nick Fury was talking about the Avengers and those were my favorite scenes. I also knew Whiplash was a stupid villain that should never pose a threat to Tony, and most of the build up to make him a legitimate villain was boring. Iron Man is a great character and really just lacks some legitimate non-Avenger villains. To me this is kind of the polar opposite of Dark Knight in terms of good comic movies, where Dark Knight was really brooding and dark and serious (fitting for Batman) Iron Man was up beat, witty and didn't take itself too seriously.

8/10

I didn't watch watchmen, there is no way they could have accurately conveyed that graphic novel onto the big screen and also mold it to appeal to a general audience.

I was a little sour on the film but all the scenes with Rorschach were awesome, I love seeing many of his strips come to life, literally.

Fargo

I really liked it. Definitely a Coen type of movie. Some of the scenes like the interview of the girls who ****ed the criminals had me cracking up. And I saw some weird random stuff like a poster on the kids door of the "Accordian King" lol. And no I don't know how to spell accordian. The accents were pretty funny too.

83/100

4/5

the score is a bit annoying and even misleading. this movie is actually a lot more gritty than i remembered.

Iron Man 2 - 5/10
A Nightmare On Elm Street - 3/10

DVD

Hitch - 8/10

Going to the theaters this weekend reminded me once again that I should just wait till the movie hits the DVD shelves and save my money. What garbage out there.

Just saw it for the first time and the visuals were obviously amazing. The storyline was still very good. I don't care that it wasn't original and groundbreaking because it kept me very engaged and interested the entire time.

Finally got around to seeing Terminator Salvation.

It was pretty close to what I expected. The action was decent at times, but it felt directionless and all the characters and performances sucked.

Iron Man 2

6.5/10

Pretty god special f/x....Scarlett Johanssen [sp] is always a plus and Sam Jack did his usual--yelling at people.

but the story wasn't so great and there could have been more action.
