Cinema review: Iron Man
I like the kind of superhero who always has the upper hand, no matter what. When I was a scrawny kid putting up with bullies, I escaped into a superhero fantasy world where the rules would be different. I imagined my super strength. I imagined super tools. I imagined super suits. Even though I read many comic books, Iron Man was not one of them. But he fits the bill. He's got the wealth and gimmicks of Batman without the hang-ups. I enjoyed the new movie. The only thing that really bothered me was the gratuitous sex scene that had nothing to offer to the plot.
