Movie Review: Ironman

This will be my first movie review and most likely my last as well, so here goes:

I'd give this movie a solid: B+.


1. Action scene were pretty sweet. The armor was cool.

Sweet. I can defy physics and fly at supersonic speeds and kill terrorists.

2. Of course, they played the obligatory Black Sabbath' s (thanks, albert) Ironman song at the end of the movie. Reminds me of Guitar Hero and the Nissan Titan truck commercials that played during football season.

3. Leslie Bibb.

I offset the negative hotness that Gwyneth Paltrow adds to the movie, even though everytime you see me, you can't help but think of my lines in Talladega Nights.

4. And of course... can't forget the previews. I loved the previews. Definitely added to the overall experience of the movie.


1. Product placement. If you watch the movie, you'll see what I mean. Audi, Motorola, and even Burger King.

Some marketing rep from BK thought it would be awesome for Ironman to crave a Burger King Cheeseburger after returning from captivity.

2. Corny parts. I guess you can't really do a movie like this without it.

What does a corn dog and every single line from my mouth have in common? We're both corny as hell!!!

3. Gwyneth Paltrow is lame.

I married Chris Martin from Coldplay and I suck.

4. Terrence Howard's Character. I can't believe he agreed to do this role and say half the lines he did. He seriously just acted like a retard for most of the movie.

5. Some Asian kids came in to the movie with a box full of Chinese food and chopsticks. Pissed off a lot of people, since it smelled like white cabbage for most of the movie.

The more I think about it and objectively weigh the factors... this movie deserves like a solid: C-

As you can tell by this point, I don't know shit about movies really at all, and just listed the things I liked and didn't like about the movie. Besides, people who review movies using that Facebook app sound really pretentious anyway.

Iron Man is by Black Sabbath. Ozzy's voice in that song is unmistakable. I like how your movie rating changed by the end of the post.
