    I went to the first show yesterday morning. The place was packed completely. That movie rocked. It was so much better than the critics said it was. I'm a bit of a geek. I loved it. Might go see it again.

    Somehow I think you're lying.

    Did you like Ironman?

    Awesome. Fiance is still confused by the whiole comic book movie thing (she wasn't a dork growing up), but she enjoyed it. She thinks Wolverine has anger management issues...

    I saw it last night with a few other comic book geeks. It was pretty much what I expected it to be.

    The local critic out here only gave it 2 1/2 stars. I think sometimes they forget that most of us just go to the movies to be entertained. Not to nit pick over everything.

    I guess i wasn't much of a real geek. Just a boy who had toys and comics. I thought the movie was great.

    And yes, Wolverine has anger issues. I'm surprised that's all he has.

    And yes, i did like Ironman. Robert Downey was great in that movie. And i like to see movies to be entertained. Not to look for every incorrect detail.

    I watched some boot leg copy form some website last week. I thought it was pretty good. being a comic fan helps appreciate it a bit more. Funny thing about the boot leg is it must have been a stolen rough cut, as some of the computer graffics were basicly just anamated and in some of the fight scenes the guide wires were not yet blocked out. Made it interesting to watch. I am sure there were a lot of other effects left out. Looking forward to seeing it in the theater tonight.

    It wasn't the "detail" that made Ironman crap. Although I will admit that Downey did what he could to make it not crappy.

    With Ironman, the 3 main stars are all amazing actors. I really enjoyed the pizza scene.

    I thought Gwenyth's performance was really spotty... several times her delivery seemed really "reading the script"-ish.

    yeah. She wasn't that great, but she didn't hurt my eyes either.

    Gotta give Hugh some props. The ladies were all bothered by him. Leaving puddles in their chairs. That dude is ripped as hell.

    Gwenyth sucks in any movie. She's bland, boring, and obviously a lunatic (if you haven't looked at her website "www.goop.com", you'd see why. She lists things that every woman must have as thousand-dollar shoes, etc. Total lunatic.).

    But Wolverine was good. And Ironman was good as well.

    It was fun to watch.

    Yeah. Magneto is awesome. But this movie was still really good. Gives you an idea of why he hated the man that created him in X2.

    ^^^^^Dayum. Tell us how you really feel.

    You didn't expect it to be an Academy Award Winner, did you? I went in with no low expectations. So i liked it a lot because i generally thought it would suck dong.

    havent seen it yet but very inpressed with most of the marvel/comic remakes

    hellboy is a fav
    ironman was perfectly casted by RDJ
    the punisher was awesome
    ghost rider was detailed exactly to the books
    fantastic four was more than I expected and kid friendly
    elektra still makes me day dream about that outfit
    Xmen (all of them) have been great story lines and all the characters you want to see

    as for these, not so sure they made the cut
    daredevil
    spidermans
    blade (I cant stand wesley snipes)
    the hulks

    Dude. Ghost Rider was the absolute worst movie I have ever seen. I don't care if it followed the book or not...

    I'm a pretty big fan and the movie was so-so...about what I expected! I hate when they try and change the already established story....D

    Blade 3 was good because jessica biel was in it. She's easy on the eyes.

    Ghost Rider...............I couldn't even finish it.

    You day dream about wearing it too????

    I liked Garner when she was in Alias. Those wigs and lingerie pretty much made that show.
