Iron Man 2

My husband and I finally got a chance to check our Iron Man 2.  We are usually huge movie buffs, but haven’t had the chance to see anything in 3 weeks. I do believe this may have been the longest time I’ve been without going to the cinema in about 8 years.  I feel very behind on the latest releases.  There is so much I want to see, but I had to prioritise.

I had never heard of Iron Man before the first movie came out.  The main attraction for me, was Robert Downey Jnr.  You could put that man in any movie, and I’d line up to see it. I loved the movie, and the character Tony Stark.  It seems I can’t resist a man that oozes arrogance.  So, I was really looking forward to Iron Man 2.

Discussing it at work this afternoon, a colleague asks me if I found it a bit far-fetched.  Is it just me, or isn’t that expected when going to see a super-hero movie?

Scarlett Johansson is absolutely stunning, as usual.  The one that that got to me though, is how she has her out in her major fight scene.  I had very similar hair until recently cutting it off, and I think if i got involved in some major kick-assing, I would spend all my time trying to keep my hair out of my eyes and mouth.  If I even encounter such an opportunity, I’d choose to go with a ponytail or a bun.  However, not quite as sexy, I imagine.

We stayed until the end of the credits to see the segment which I’m told is a lead up to Thor.  Another character I’ll probably know nothing about until the movie comes out.  I asked my husband and asked him if I’m excited by this, and he says I am.  He knows me better than anyone, so I can’t wait to see this Thor movie.
