i am iron man

Dude. Iron Man was pretty freaking awesome. I really loved Tony and Pepper’s relationship – the pining assistant who does everything and the boss who finally sees and recognizes the contributions as integral and partner-like. Yes. Okay, so maybe it’s um, old-fashioned is probably the kindest way to put it, but I can’t help it! I love it! Robert Downey Jr. was fantastic, and I didn’t actually hate Gwyneth Paltrow, which is so unusual as to be noteworthy. Also! SHIELD! And, um, I may have squeaked out loud when the penny dropped about the mention of Samuel L. Jackson in the post-credits sequence, and I definitely said “OH MY GOD NICK FURY” when it came on. I’ve never read a damn comic in my life (okay, that’s an exaggeration, obviously, but I’ve never read one with Nick Fury in it) and I still know Nick Fury is a badass motherfucker. So that made me squee. Luckily, the theatre was mostly empty at that point.
