Movie Thread

Any good movies out there? My theater attendance has been nearly flat in recent years, but I need to get out of the house. Right now, Iron Man looks like the top contender for my attention, and I have been hearing good things. Maybe a few too many good things.

Indiana Jones is another possibility, though I've been hearing some mixed reactions.

I loved Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, but some other high-wire-fu movies I've seen didn't really impress me (they tended to go overboard with "artistic" use of color and did everything they could to bring attention to the wires), so I'm hesitant to go see Forbidden Kingdom without a direct recommendation.

Please keep spoilers to a minimum. Unless the reveal's stupid enough to ruin the movie.

I can, without any reservations, tell you that Iron Man kicks all manner of ass.

I, too, shall provide my support for Iron Man. I really enjoyed it.

Indy 4, well, it was a fun movie. I wish they'd tried to keep more of the pre-CGI style of the previous three, though.

Yeah, I'm not one for CGI-candy most of the time. It takes a lot of effort to make it work properly.

Toss in my vote for Iron Man.

Downey Jr. was fucking fantastic. Even The Dark Knight will have a hard time beating it out, I figure.

Well, I'm back from the theater. They did a fine job on Iron Man.

Wonder if I'd look good in form-fitting powered armor.
