I Am Iron Man

Right off the bat, let me tell you that Iron Man is without question the greatest Superhero movie ever made.

Not only is it a fantastic Superhero movie, but it is an amazing movie period.  It's very well written, incredibly well acted, and Jon Favreau has come a long way since Made as a director.

I stick with my assertion that Robert Downey Jr is the greatest casting in a Superhero movie ever, and his real life experiences helped add depth to his performance as well as an automatic understanding in the audience of who Tony Stark is as a character.

The film has the perfect mix of action and story, which superhero films that desire to be more then just an action flick often have trouble achieving.

The movie is extremely enjoyable on a novice level, if you're someone who hadn't heard of Iron Man prior to the film being made, but at the same time there are lots of nods to the longtime fan of the character throughout the film as well, including a hint towards the future appearance of War Machine.

The Summer movie season is off to a fine start, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall just got knocked off the top spot in 2008's Josh's Top Ten list.

Until Next Time, I was disappointed with the amount of laughter the full theater gave to the previews of You Don't Mess With the Zohan and The Love Guru.  Neither preview really struck me as that funny.
