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.
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.

Awesome prison flick. About a guy who's about to start his job as a prison guard, decides to report in a day early just to familiarize himself with the place, gets caught up in a riot, and has to pass himself off as an inmate to survive. One of the best -- and most unique -- prison movies I've seen.
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.
