Last Thursday Night, my girlfriend Jordan, my brother and my good friend Michael went to see Iron Man 2 at the midnight release. We literally sat through 20 minutes of trailers, the most we have ever had to sit through. I am not necessary complaining about it but 20 minutes is a long time to watch trailers, we saw this movie at an AMC theatre.

The movie was fucking awesome and I really enjoyed it. I think I can say the same for all of us too that saw it too. If you see it, make sure to stay till the end of the credits. Majority of our crowd in the theatre stayed after the movie to watch the clip that we all knew was going to happen, just like at the end of Iron Man.

First off, there were a bunch of easter eggs, if you are interested in finding out what they were, click that link and enjoy. If you have not seen the movie, I would not recommend you read it. There are more articles out there on Google you can go to which provide more pictures of the easter eggs and discussion.

Now about the movie, the action scenes were awesome and well done. The best part I loved about the movie, is the final fight scene and the weapon that Tony Stark/Iron Man uses. If you have seen the movie, you know what I am talking about. If you have not seen it yet, you will know what I am talking about when you get to the scene.

I was also sketchy at first with Don Cheadle replacing Terrence Howard as Rhodey. Do not get me wrong, Don Cheadle is a fucking badass actor and the same goes with Terrence Howard. But in the end, I think Don Cheadle deserves the role of Rhodey. The moments and humor between him and Tony/Iron Man throughout the movie were greatly written and well done. The chemistry was perfect, I think.

You will also notice that a lot of new characters are introduced in this movie than the first one. I have read around that more of the characters could of had a little more screen time such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson and Clark Gregg especially. I do not 100% agree with this, but I do think they should of had a little more screen time. I am barely a fan of Sam Rockwell and his acting, but he did play the role of Justin Hammer good.

In the end, I rate Iron Man 2 a 10/10. It is definitely worth seeing and paying for. You can not go wrong here with the purchase, unless of course you do not like Iron Man or maybe even the first one.

The number one movie has to be Iron Man 2.

Now not so much in any particular order, the movie’s I am really looking forward to seeing are:

The Expendables – Huge cast of awesome actors from Jason Statham! to Sylvester Stallone to Mickey Rourke and more.
Toy Story 3 – It is fucking Toy Story… 3.
Get Him To The Greek – Jonah Hill, Russell Brand, oh yeah.
Grown Ups – Has Adam Sandler Kevin James and more)
Predators – I hope will be good, really hope so.
Red Dawn (remake) – I loved the original, I just so hope they do not fuck it up.
The American – George Clooney is a great actor, but this movie seems so-so and possibly just not theatre worthy.
Little Fockers – Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, and etc are back for another sequel, I think and hope it will be funny.
A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas – it is Harold and Kumar, come on? How could you not want to see it?

That is just a little list of what I hope to all or mostly enjoy this year in movies. There are more to name but most of these are the bigger ones I have kept or stuck out to me at the moment. What are yours?

Finally had a chance to play Iron Man The Game for Xbox 360 (long wait at GameFly). It’s not as good as I wanted it to be or could of been but it’s not an absolute terrible game. I did find it better than other games that have been made from a movie though. If saying that is worth anything. Achievements are very easy in this game. You can easily get around an 850 GS increase in 4-6 hours.

The story does not really follow much of the movie. Which is a good thing because it would then be a quite boring game and I could never even justify buying it for $60 if that were the case even though I rented it. I really cannot justify paying $60 for this game either though at its current state. It starts you off pretty much the same (slightly different) from the first time you see Iron Man in the movie in the caves. There a few villains in this game that you fight but for the most part, you are destroying tanks to your weapons that are in the wrong hands to missile silos and so forth.

The game is pretty short too. Can easily be beat in a few hours and returned next day if you wanted too. I skipped all the cut scenes too, just did not interest me what so ever especially already knowing pretty much what they are going to say because of the movie and anything else I could really careless for because this game doesn’t really draw you into loving it, caring or anything.

Weapons in this game are alright. You are going to use Iron Man’s repulsors most the entire game. Though he does have alternative weapons such as firing missiles or grenades I did not enjoy them too much and the “reload” times for them were just enough to forget about them most the time because of constantly firing my repulsors. Though they do help in blowing up tanks, helicopters and whatever else necessary to destroy though. So they do come in handy.

You are in the air 99% of the time so you never do come melee in this game as you are able too (excluding the first level). You don’t need to be in the air 99% of the time though, so it is not forced on you but not sure why you would not want to be though because I find the melee system absolutely terrible. It’s useless.

The game has its flaws though, there were times where the games just seems a bit buggy. It took me a while to get use to the flying. I could not find proper flying invert controls? When I changed what I found, it just messed me up further and on the ground so I just kept them how they were and just did my best to what I was sort of getting use too. Like I said, it took me a while but not too long. Just long enough to get frustrated to what I am use to with all other games.

There are other small things as well that I cannot remember or whatever and you will see if you decide to play the game. None of these make the game in playable though. Just annoyances I guess?

Graphics were absolutely terrible for pretty much everything. It’s not the worst I have seen but for games we see today, they were terrible.

I really enjoyed the ability to change up your suit and upgrade certain abilities from how powerful your weapons are and armor to how mobile you are as well. They balance it out though so you are not really going to be super powerful and run through the game on Formidable difficulty. You can even use different older suits such as Hulk armor or other early designs or colors of the Iron Man if you know its history. So that might be cool to you, I thought it was cool to add but that was it.

Overall, decent game. Worth checking out as a rental. I would stay away from purchasing this game though. There is no replay value in this game so do not waste your money. I give it 2 stars and if I were to go any higher it would just be 2 1/2.
