    I was looking forward to seeing "Ironman" because I like Robert Downey, Jr. Now we're half an hour or so into it, and my reaction is WTF? His sidekick just died and he's just blasted his way out of some cave roasting some bad guys, wearing his little suit of armor.

    I'm so bored I could scream. Does this get ANY better, or is it going to totally suck all the way through? I need to know now. I'm getting to the age where wasting two hours is getting to be an issue.

    Other than Downey being amusing at times, it's a waste of time.

    Thanks for the verification. I'll do something else while it's on and just listen to the noise.

    Yes. Stay. The ending is fantastic.

    If it's "Rosebud" then I've already SEEN this one. Damn! :mad:

    I saved myself, and walked away from it. I feel much better this morning.

    We finally watched Slumdog Millionaire. Sounds like we made a better choice.

    I liked Ironman. Saw it at the Tiger Drive-In in a double feature with the last Indiana Jones movie.
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

    Ugh! At least we both cut our losses on the Indiana Jones movie before he was even out of the warehouse! We clicked that off at the fifteen minute mark, and we usually give movies a half hour fair chance.
