    Wow, the two biggest acting comebacks this decade in one movie... Mickey Rourke and Robert Downey Jr. This will be awesome.

    "Comeback"?

    Robert Downey Jr. has been in several movies this decade, the least not being Iron Man 1.

    Ron dislikes a film = go out and buy it.
    Ron loves a film = don't even rent.

    Well considering that thread was talking about the movie being reveled and this is actually talking about trailers and when the movie is going to come out. I would say that is different. If the title said Iron man 2 or something of that sort It would not mind. I mean their was a thread titled ***** trailer. If you want to talk about a movie talk about it not titling something over a trailer.

    True but they are just starting to tease you with the trailers. Now wait for the good ones.

    Saw this at midnight last night. I will say this I was expecting more but it was still great, you can definitely tell Audi and Dick's were doing their advertising in this movie. All and all a good not great story line but the action was great. If I had it say a movie that was close to it but still making IM 2 better I would say Transformers 2

    This was a fun ride. Did not disappoint. 1st movie was better but this one was no slouch. I prefer Terrence Howard over Don Cheadle but I was okay with the change. NOT ENOUGH SCARLETT JOHANSSON. She rocked. Loved Pepper Potts but that's a Gwyneth Paltrow addiction I refuse to seek treatment for. Great job by Mickey Rourke and Robert Downey, Jr. Very good special effects. LFE was deafening. Everything was shaking.

    This is turning out to be a great series. Looking forward to the next movie.

    ***** Stay after the credits for a sneak peak. *****

    The first one was arguably better, but, this one wasn't bad. Cheadle's a good actor, but should have probably stuck with Howard. Gwyneth Paltrow looked fabulous =0. And yes, vibrations abound.

    I'm sure I'm going to see DVD copies of this any day now over here....probably out already....copyrights....what are those?

    The only way I'm going to catch this is in this form, however...a disadvantage of being 'away'. Glad to hear it didn't suck!

    I agree...even though I haven't seen it...I prefer Terence!

    Awesome; movie deviates from the comic book, but the saving graces are:

    1. Action !
    2. Gwyneth Paltrow
    3. Mickey Rourke
    4. RD, Jr.
    5. AC/DC
    6. Gwyneth Paltrow
    7. Gwyneth Paltrow


    A good full video clip of AC/DC doing "Shoot to Thrill" at the Tony Stark Expo can be found at:

    Tried to find one of an IRONMAN2 "Thunderstruck", but no luck.


    ...... Did I mention Gwyneth Paltrow ?

    Have yet to see the movie, but I am sure it will be at least worth a watch (as an avid comic book fan). Plus there is Scarlett Johansson...... :)
    I may goto the theater to see this one (I can almost feel the obnoxiously loud and often blown speakers and taste the best popcorn ever-- hey, it HAS to be good for that price, right??). I find myself more and more waiting for movies to come out on blu-ray. I experience better sound, I can pause it, cheaper snacks, and pants are optional...
    The only thing I am a bit lacking in is the low end (I am in an apartment building, and in the interest of staying I have delayed buying a sub; the LSI15's put out nice bass, just not that LOW, LOW rumbe.).... Maybe I am just getting old...

    I almost never go to theaters anymore, but I'm going to go see this one. I'm going to wait a few weeks for the crowds to die down though.
    My equipment sig felt inadequate and deleted itself.
