IRON MAN rockets to stratospheric comic book movie greatness!!!


After sitting through the full-length trailers of the
along with the sundrenched, ABBA-infused musical MAMMA MIA!
(Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, and Clive Owen),

the crowd at Waltermart Pasong Tamo
(our not-so-secret-anymore best theater in Makati)
was primed and ready for the summer's first blockbuster.

Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jeff Bridges,
all Oscar-nominated actors, did not disappoint.

Jon Favreau,
you're a swingin' director. Impressive!!!

From the very 1st scene
that was reminiscent of (back in)Blackhawk Down,
to the Transformers-worthy heavy metal special effects,
the funny yet intelligent script (lots of..... what else....irony!),
to the revelation in the final line of dialogue,

everything about the film left us frothing in the mouth in anticipation
of the inevitable IRON MAN sequel
(hopefully in two years... or less!)


geeky fanboys will be ecstatic,
action fans will be quite satisfied,
even if you've never read a single Iron Man comic,
you will love this movie;

it's the exact opposite of stoooopid superhero flicks
like the Fantastic Four.

So when are we going to have that
movie team-up, Stan Lee?

kuya spanx, what makes waltermart cinemas special and the best in makati? malamig po ba aircon, na re-recline ba seats gaya ng eastwood, dolby digital ex-surround po ba sya?

waltermart is the best because:

1. easy parking
2. cold airconditioning
3. excellent seats with recessed drink holders, and yes, they recline slightly too
4. dolby, dts, etc.!!!
5. ticket costs are still slightly cheaper than glorietta and greenbelt

in waltermart,
the cupholders are under the armrests of the seats;
just lift the armrest and tadahhh...

so that you don't accidentally
hit and spill your drink ",)

check them out next time you watch a movie there!

Iron Man was practically flawless as a super hero flick; it drops pretty obvious hints that would indicate a sequel as well... i'm thinking the next one should be equally great
