So... Who's seen it?

What an amazing techno-(porn)-ographic movie.
So many, so shiny geek toys... and then that reactor control board...

Comic book story of course, but Robert Downey Jr. was just grand .

Just remember kids: Ironman kills (bad) people and has no qualms about it!

I loved it! Absolutely loved it. It had wit, and timing, and wonderful pace. Robert Downey Jr., good at playing a drunken playboy. Who'd have thought?

I loved it as well... when I first heard about Dwoney Jr., I was conflicted. I can't believe how well he played Stark, just awesome.

It is AWESOME!

Best Superhero film I have ever seen.

The story does stay remarkably true to the original (a few things changed to reflect the present, but still...wow).

The cast is incredible.

Loved it!

Everything about the movie makes me want to watch it. I was never a huge fan of comic books, but read a large number all the same. When I was a kid, I always loved the idea of super armour, or a power suit. Also, personally, I've never seen Bob Downey in anything he didn't make look better.

This is one film I'm dragging everyone down to the cinemas for!

I did, in fact, see the film twice, partly to see the last scene (missed it the first time), and partly because Iron Man rocks.

For those interested, I wrote a long and disjointed musing on the film. There are some spoilers, I guess, if you're going into this completely blind.

I didn't know about any form of last scene, which is annoying as I watched most of the 3D credits stuff. I think I can wait though, I'm in no hurry to watch all that again.

Man, after reading Master Suho's review (nice review, btw), it struck me that maybe there are not that many Asylumites that actually read comics in their youth (or now, as the case may be).

Is that true?

I grew up on the "old comics" of Iron Man, The Defenders, The Avengers, The Defenders, Spider-Man, Daredevil, the X-Men, the Mighty Thor, etc. Getting the thrilling chance to actually see many of these come to the big screen (and well done, btw) has just been an awesome ride so far.

For me, Iron Man has topped the list, so far. I think that this film did Tony Stark more justice than most of the other Super Hero films have done for the main Protagonist to date. I could be biased, however. I always did have a soft spot for Iron Man.

Heh, thanks WS. Yeah, it's true... I didn't get into comics until university, believe it or not.

It wasn't that I had anything against them, I just never read them. Don't know why. I don't remember any of my friends reading (or at least talking about) them either. Hmm.

Most of the comics I had when I was younger was the Beano and Whizzer and Chips, terrible newspaper jokes and various happenings is about all I can remember in them, nothing about good vs evil and that kind of thing, no messages at all.

It wasn't until I was older I read V and watchmen and things.

Heehee! Same here for Beano and Whizzer and Chips, etc. I read a few Marvel and DC comics, but my favourite comic was actually 2000AD. I was never really an ardent comic fan - I certainly know more about them all now (thanks to an impulsive research spasm some time ago) than I ever did back then.

The truth is out there Hugh... if ya reeeeally want ta know

I came across it by accident, but after I saw the movie, so didn't spoil it.

I don't like to post the link as half the fun is the waiting, and watching people run out of patience and leave the cinema when the cleaners turn up

Oh my FSM!

****SPOILER****
*****ALERT*****

Um... this might be a sensitive issue, but am I the only one who thinks there appears to be a little confusion over the ethnicity of Nick Fury?

Okay, so David Hasselhoff was completely unconvincing as Nick Fury in that awful made-for-TV cheese-fest released a few years back, but I can't help but wonder if casting Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury is any more appropriate than proposing David Hasselhoff play Luke Cage! I can almost hear the screams... "a white man playing Luke Cage?! Where's my motherf***ing gun?"

Oh, hang on... 'Ultimate Nick Fury'..? Actually modelled after SLJ? I was unfamiliar with this incarnation of the gruff unsuper one. I stand corrected.

Hey, let's cast a peroxide David as Luke and call him 'Aryan L. Cage'! I can draw-up a few frames for provenance, then it'll be okay!

Puh-lease...

TBH, I am more interested in the Actor chosen being able to pull off said role than what skin color they have.

I think SLJ will play an excellent Nick Fury.

Granted, it is not exactly "true" to the racial identity of the original, but as long as the Actor can pull it off, I am willing to suspend my belief here.

AS WH said it is certainly Ultimate Nick Fury, and besides who better to play a super hero character? An actor that resembles the character, or and actor that the character was based off for his look and style? It makes sense to me.

Okay, but it still seems a bit of a crock to me (partly because the movie should have been 'Ultimate Iron Man' in this case). I can't see SLJ as the original Nick Fury, had no knowledge until today of Ultimate Nick Fury (which just seems flipping stupid to me), and must admit that I've grown sick and tired of seeing SLJ on TV every five minutes in one invariable SLJ-esque character or another. In fact, Virgin have a run of SLJ-fronted adverts for their service at the moment, aired on every darn ad-break, in which he does his usual 'yay, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for I'm the biggest, baddest mo-fo in da valley' ranting crap...

*sigh*

...I'm over it now. Sorry for the interruption.

Okay, I can't wait to see Iron Man. But I will have to. No big deal. I'm glad to hear that Bobby did a good job. I don't agree with some of the CG they did, but that's me.

I did some link hopping and got sucked into reading about The Ultimates. Makes me miss that I don't collect anymore. It's always interesting to take old characters and do different things with them. This is one of the reasons why I enjoyed John Byrne's work.

That got me thinking about school when we did our own super hero stuff. Doodles, really. I was the kid on rollerblades that got into 'running' fights down the halls. My one buddy was Wolverine-ish and was constantly doing surprise attacks out of a spring loaded locker - it was our own variation of the Cannonball Special.

We've done a few Asylum character things in the past. Maybe time to revisit the idea with an Asylumite Super Hero Edition? With comic book to movie being in full swing, might be a fun good idea.

Ok, who better to play Nick Fury, David Hasselhoff or Samuel L Jackson?

Actually if I could make it happen, I'd choose either Tom Sellek or Bruce Campbell!

The movie has done remarkably well, no doubt.
It was a good, fun movie and I enjoyed seeing it in the theater.
Though I don't believe it held up to the hype it's gotten.

I agree. Had I gone into this knowing all the hype, I'm not sure how I would have felt. But I went into it with no expectations, so I ended up really enjoying it.

Same here. I missed the hype, knew squat about Iron Man, and enjoyed the movie.

Saw the movie last night. Thought it was quite good, but could have been better. Iron Man did have quite the assortment of toys that I would like to have; if they were real. I would recommend this movie to someone even if they have never read the comic book.

The movie was extremely good and I enjoyed it thoroughly. But I have to say that for me the new Batman movies are better.

I loved the tech and I think Downey Jr. captured the character perfectly. I was a bit disappointed with the villain's mecha though. It just didn't seem ominous enough.

My favorite scene has to be as Iron Man is walking away from the tank.

My favorite line is by far "If you extinguish me one more time when I'm not actually on fire you are going straight to a university research unit."

I did not grow up on comic books. I'm a late comer as I started collecting in '93. But since that time I've attended each and every San Diego Comic-Con and consider it a non-negotiable annual pilgrimage.

Anyways, I can't wait for the sequel and am really looking forward to the next Batman installment.

So, I finally went to see it, and rather enjoyed it.

Only one or two other couples stayed for the end-of-credits scene. When it was all over, I distinctly heard someone exclaim loudly, "Is that it?!"

I look forward to the sequel - I hear tell that it's already on the way.

I nearly always had my nose in a comic when I was a kid, loved them. English comics like the Dandy, Beano and Valiant. I also loved a lot of American comics. From Soops himself, through Batman, Spidey, The Flash, Green Lantern, The Silver Surfer, loads more that I can't quite remember just now. There were also other great story comics whose names I'm not too sure about, Fantastic Tales perhaps? The story lines would have an "out of this world" theme, or was that the name of the comic? I've been searching the net for lists of English and American comics from the 50's onwards but have yet to find anything near a definitive list. My browsing skills have diminished with lack of use it seems.
Anyone know of such a list on-line?

I've not been to see the Iron Man film yet, but I have read Master Suho's review (nice one). Tell me is Iron Man the one I remember who had to plug himself into a wall socket or some other electrical supply in the office or home to stay alive?
