It's that time again. My movie watching usually entails me watching movies years after others. As you guys know, I've been expanding my movie palette. Watching movies I normally would not has been the norm for a while now. This time is no different. This experience was cued by watching a new release earlier this year. "The Avengers" opened my eyes to a surprising fact. The comic book movies that I'd been avoiding could actually be great. While I loved everything about "The Avengers," there was one character that stood out to me. He was Tony Stark also known as Iron Man. I loved his narcissistic, sarcastic nature. He was hilarious in a way that I wasn't expecting. The sarcastic tone of his personality stood out to me because it is also one I possess. After watching it, I knew I had to see what Tony Stark was all about. So, I finally gave in and watched "Iron Man" this past week. My expectations were high but obtainable.
Both movies were awesome. I loved the background info of the first movie. It was my introduction to who Stark was. AS a character, he was amazing before he became Iron Man. Become Iron Man just made his character that much more lovable to me. I loved the action scenes and the plot of the second movie. It was exciting and entertaining. I'm also glad I watched IM2 because now I know where the Nick Fury and Black Widow characters came from. Also, I got to know a little bit about the S.H.I.E.L.D. group as well. Tony Stark is my hands down favorite still. I think I even like him more. There is an "Iron Man 3" in the works and I cannot wait. More Tony Stark? Yes, please. It also doesn't hurt that Robert Downey Jr. is sexy. I like eye candy as well. I was already looking forward to "The Avengers 2" but now I cannot wait to see what happens next. I know that I will def watch IM & IM2 again. I enjoyed both.
