Nice gesture from Andrew Garfield at Comic Con

25 07 2011

I wish I was at Comic Con’s Sony Panel with the new Spider-Man movie. I think the entire hall was surprised to see that Garfield (the guy, not the cat), the new Peter Parker, was among them all the time. I really like with what he said – “This is the coolest moment of my life”. Class act. Check it out on Yahoo News.

Iron Man 2: My Personal Take

3 05 2010

I just had a chance to watch Iron Man 2. Too bad there’s no IMAX theatre in my area but normal theatre will do.

Personally I am satisfied with Iron Man 2. Iron Man 1 was fresh and Iron Man 2 didn’t waste time to retell the story and it continued after the first movie. Without any spoiler, fans of Iron Man will like it. As for casual action fans, they might be skeptical at some point of the movie but I’m sure they will like the film as well.

Robert Downey, Jr. seemed very easy going as Tony Stark. He played the role with such suaveness and slick that made Tony Stark stands out among other graphic novel adaptation. I’m glad that Gwyneth Paltrow and Jon Favreau’s Pepper Potts and Happy Hogan respectively had more roles in the film. All three of them had good chemistry and dynamic that made their relationship in the graphic novel alive in this film.

I really enjoyed Sam Rockwell’s performance as Justin Hammer. I know, I know, the real Hammer is way older but I think director Jon Favreau did the right thing to decrease Hammer’s age to be the same range as Robert Downey, Jr.’s Tony Stark. Every scene that has both Stark and Hammer were delightful.

Don Cheadle’s role as James Rhodes was okay for me. He did an adequate job on this one. At first I thought I might have doubt to see him as Rhodes (instead of Terrence Howard). But I was wrong. Cheadle played the role nicely and had a good chemistry with Downey, Jr.’s Tony Stark. As for Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, personally she left something to be desired. I assume that she might have more role in, if any, the next Iron Man movie.

As for Mickey Rourke, I’m sure he had a blast playing Ivan Vanko’s role in Iron Man 2. His appearance as Vanko in the 1st act was very intimidating.

All in all, I’m satisfied with Iron Man 2 and this movie surely leaves some room for the (I’m very sure there will be) Iron Man 3. And be sure to stay After the credit. You’ll be surprised like I was.





Mickey Rourke is in Iron Man 2!

8 01 2009

And I first thought the casting news of Tim Robbins as Howard Stark a while back was great. According to Joblo.com, Mickey Rourke will star in Iron Man 2 and likely to be in the role of Crimson Dynamo! Honestly I can’t picture him to be the scientist who create the suit but Rourke in Crimson Dynamo armor would be awesome. Check out the link for more details.

Iron Man DVD Review

30 09 2008

Here you go, folks. The highly anticipated, at least for me, Iron Man DVD and I just got my hands on right off the shelf today. And man, the sound FX is just a blast! My only complaint is it should have DTS 5.1 surround sound. But with the audio the disc has, it’s enough for me to blow the amp up in my home theater. Check out the link for Iron Man DVD review.
