"I'm sorry. This is the fun-vee. The hum-drum-vee is back there."

Iron Man, 2008. Four stars.

That's right, FOUR STARS!!

I'd heard that the Iron Man costume and stuff was all CGI, which I thought was really stupid and would look bad and ruin the movie for me. But I decided to suck it up and see it in the cinema with some of my friends. And, the CGI didn't bother me a bit! I actually almost forgot all about it.

The writing was really well done, it was like a real movie rather than a summer blockbuster with pretty special effects. It caught me off-guard. And the acting is great. Everything about it grabbed my attention. Plus, S.H.I.E.L.D.! Samuel L. Jackson is Nick Fury. That's something to look forward to!

I'd not really followed any of the Iron Man comics, I'm only familiar with The Ultimates. But, from what little I previously knew about him, I could tell that Robert Downey Jr. IS Tony Stark! He's magnificent!! I love that guy in movies.

Gwyneth Paltrow, who I think has the nicest name ever, was sooooooooooo cute in this movie.

And, Jon Favreau directed this? Way to go, dude!

Gwyneth's mother has an even nicer name, Blythe Danner, and is pretty cute in her own right. Besides being Gwyneth's real-life mother, she's Ben Stiller's mother-in-law-to-be in "Meet the Parents" and won a couple of Emmys as Will's mother on "Will & Grace." She's a stage actress, too, and won a Tony award in 1970 for "Butterflies Are Free."
