Bad Style: Iron Man

Don't see Iron Man.

Well, okay, it's worth seeing. But only so you can let everyone know your disappointment is legitimate!

Robert Downey, Jr. is fantastic. Gwyneth Paltrow is very Pepper Potts. And Terrence Howard is cool, calm, and perfectly suited for his role. The problem is everything else. Choppy, nonsensical story, lackluster action sequences, and one joke of a "twist."

On a rank of things that smell, I'd give this 'salted eggs.' (I'm trying to be original here.)

[Ed. Note: Atonement would be the delicious scent of an authentic Pad Thai. Any Michael Bay film is something like...rotting corpses. There's the scale.]

Okay, I'm never comparing films to food ever again.

totally on point. i just saw it tonight and was sadly unimpressed.

i felt the first part of the film was misogynistic, republican propaganda, the 2nd was a little whimsical but still reasonably entertaining, and the last part was just fucking ridiculous.

salted eggs actually makes sense now.
