Really? RDJr, are you really that cool? Yes! Yes! A resounding “Yes”, you are! At first glance, The Avengers movie was just a really good and legitimate reason to get out with the boys, but “Wow!” that was a fairly righteous piece of Hollywooooood just to be calling it a reason to get out with the boys! If you could hear me now “Loved it!” then you would think Joan Rivers for the older folks or Sharpay for the young folk (oh, did that just date me?).
No matter peeps, I was just in to watch Avengers with a couple of friends in an attempt to revive our “Film Club”. The last couple of flix of said “Film Club” was the americanized version of “Men Who Hate Women” or more accurately “Man som hattar kvinnor” (Swedish title) also known as “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”, so as you can see it has been a while since the boys had a meet. Anyhoooo, the expectations were actually pretty low since we were just looking forward to some good entertainment and knowing the likes of Scarlett and RDJr would be involved then it was a pretty easy win-win situation for us.
First (and last) throw in Gwyneth and the hot Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders from How I Met Your Mother) and you are in for 2 hours plus of pure, unadulterated action and laughs. A great balance of loud explosions, futuristic and old school weapons, hotties in hot outfits, a punch line here and a punch line there and of course the great RDJ crankin dat Iron Man like no other can.
What makes Iron Man so great? Other than the fact that RDJr plays Stark so well that an untrained eye like mine makes me wonder if RDJr is indeed a real life Stark just named RDJr who just so happens to act in a movie as himself?!?!?! Other than the fact that he has got the hottie in Pepper Potts. Other than the fact that he has got the hottie in Pepper Potts. (oh, already said that)
Other than those facts, it is the fact that Iron Man has got all of the great gadgets and toys that all of us, pseudo techie nerds want to have…in our homes…tomorrow! I mean who doesn’t want to have a computer system that has the answers to everything and can be called up at just the wim of a couple of plain english statements? Anyone? I thought not! Oracle, Apple, Microsoft your best bet is to find out if RDJr is really RDJr or Tony Stark because if there is such a thing as a Tony Stark and an Iron Man then iPods, Windows, and cloud databases are a thing of the past.
For now, however, I’m a believer and The Avengers is the real deal and RDJr…”Yooooooouuuuuu – Crank dat Iron Man!”
