“Iron Man 2”

Being that we’re suckers for free movies, what do you think we did when tickets to Iron Man 2 came floating our way?

Okay, so this time Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr) has more than a few problems to contend with. First off, Ivan Vanko (played by Mickey Rourke who looks nothing like himself in his younger days), who is avenging the death of his father who supposedly collaborated with Stark Industries in the early days, has created a miniature version of the arc reactor and is now ready to whip the metallic paint off Iron Man.

Then Tony Stark discovers that his own arc reactor is failing and slowly poisoning him in the process. Unable to find a fix, he fears his days are numbered and hands over Stark Industries to Pepper Potts (played by Gwyneth Paltrow).

Okay, I’m going to stop here. It gets a lot more complicated, of course, but I’m not going to spoil the fun for you if you haven’t watched it yet. Suffice to say that I would walk 500 miles to be 5 foot 9 and 500 more to be that willowy in a pencil-slim skirt 😉 . Gwyneth Paltrow is gorgeous. She really is.

Oh, by the way, I love how Tony Stark waves his hands about to reorganize his floating icons while minions like us are still using the mouse to click here and there. But what I don’t get is the idea of Iron Man showing his face to all and sundry, and partying in his metal suit. Aren’t superheros supposed to keep their identities secret or did they change the rules when I wasn’t looking?

BTW, have you watched Iron Man 2 yet? What do you think of it?

    Hi. Just letting you know that Im from the Thursday Twitter Hop. I want to see this movie but will probably wait until it comes out on DVD. I liked the first one. I love the name Pepper Potts (lol) and Paltrow is definitely the right person to play the role.

    I liked Iron Man 2, thought it would work better if Mickey Rourke somehow tied in with Tony’s search for a cure/resolution with his father. They should have at least had some killer dialogue before the final fight.
