…It was a more innocent time, wasn’t it?
This is pretty good. (more…)
Or so this blog reports.
To be honest, I was never entirely pleased with Howard’s performance in Iron Man, and I liked Cheadle a lot in both Hotel Rwanda and Ocean’s Eleven – so this isn’t really bugging me. Robert Downey and Gwyneth Paltrow are coming back to reprise their roles, and that’s probably the key to the movie right there. The article that spawned all of this… well. Some weird stuff going on there, maybe. On the other hand, the preliminary buzz on Star Trek was worrisome, too – and that turned out OK.
I’ve seen Red Dawn more times than I can count when I was a kid, and this is back in the day when that meant watching it on VHS, but ye gods and little fishes! – that movie was awful. I don’t care what NRO thinks. Personally, I’d add Iron Man to the list, but only because doing so thoroughly mocks the antiwar movement’s ultimately unsuccessful attempt to list cowardice and hypocrisy among the American virtues.
Via RS McCain. I have no quibbles with either of his additions.
PS: I hear that World In Conflict absolutely rocks as a video game, though.
What? I like awful, sometimes.
