A few nights ago I finally got a chance to watch Iron Man 2. I went to the theater with my littlest brother Gregory. Okay, here’s the thing: I’m a closeted nerd/geek. Although I may seem a bit icy on the outside, complete with a shiny plastic exterior, I really like superhero movies among other nerdy/geeky things. I grew up watching superhero cartoons and as a little kid I would always pretend I was different heroes with different powers/abilities; I’ve just always been fascinated with the superhuman stories. I guess I’m kind of a kid at heart. But don’t tell anyone! It would ruin my image! 😛
Overall, I thought the movie was very cool! Very entertaining and I liked the storyline. Thought the drones were cool. I didn’t know much about Iron Man. Although I watched the first movie, I didn’t really know the history behind Tony Stark. I’ve never really read comic books or anything like that. [There’s one series that I’ve read, but it’s amazing, I’ll post a separate entry about it. It’s called The Runaways, and no it doesn’t include a rocker Dakota Fanning or an ever-blinking awkward lesbian-haired Kristen Stewart.]
I thought the special effects were really cool. Iron Man’s abilities (and upgrades) were just so cool! I honestly really don’t find Robert Downey Jr. very attractive, apparently I’m the only one who feels that way. However, I do love Tony Stark’s character: narcissistic, impulsive, almost whimsical and with a HUGE ego. I just love it! haha
I especially liked Scarlett Johansson’s character: Natalie Rushman/Natasha Romanoff. Not only is she gorgeous, but she’s super intelligent (she speaks how many languages? including Latin? lol) but she also kicks ass! I think I just like movies and TV shows with a strong female lead. Hmm…either way, overall really enjoyed the movie and if you haven’t seen it, it’s worth the blu-ray (or DVD) rental.
