i saw it; go see it
my son is the leader of a student organization at UT for comics fans. therefore, i saw iron man last night for free, along with a few hundred other people who through various connections saw the sneak preview.
it was wonderful.
robert downey jr is brilliant; jon favreau's direction is balanced and funny and serious and he handles the character development and the action equally well; it's just a badass and yet also intelligent film.
we could have a discussion about whether popcorn movies have any real value - i mean, it's not necessarily true that diversion is all that good for us, in my opinion, especially diversion that just plugs us into more electronics -
but to hell with that. just go see it. you'll thank me.
