Last night I rented IRON MAN at Blockbuster and on the way out of the store an elderly homeless woman curled up on the sidewalk sat up to ask me for money. I gave her all the cash that I had on me, $4.37, and then got into my car and cried. This blog isn't about the homeless but when you encounter any homeless people in your neighborhood, town and city please think twice before you turn up your nose at them- they are just trying to survive like the rest of us.
...ANYWAY, I rented IRON MAN, staring Robert Downey Jr., because I wanted to see what all the hoopla was about and I have to say I STILL don't know what all the hoopla is about.
I know the film is based on the MARVEL comic (and I LOVE MARVEL) but I couldn't get past the first 30 minutes of the film before I got pissed and shut it off. IRON MAN is a womanizing billionaire weapons dealer and not the most sympathetic character. Maybe I missed some super-duper rocket stunts or a topless Gwyneth Paltrow because I too hastily shut off the annoying film but I doubt it.
So if you liked or even loved IRON MAN please tell me why?
