Iron Man and You

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 1:59 PM By Simon

I get why everyone digs this movie, okay? It's funny, yes, and has some of the better CGI, and lots of booms, and, above all, it has Robert Downey Jr.

That is, his character, Tony Stark. At last, the rich, womanizing jock has a superhero again.

I'm not disparaging the movie, because it really is a very good movie. But I was thinking about it, and you know how the above-mentioned assholes you knew in college always hung Scarface posters on their wall, a representation of their utter douchiness? Well, that's Iron Man. A glorified man of wealth, fame, adoration, smarts, wit, nothing can go wrong for him. He's quite literally the love child of the eighties and the super-secret journals of a high school quarterback. He goes to another country and kills a shitload of people, and he gets away with it. He has a procedure for when women stay the night. He builds himself a fucking heart out of scrap metal. He's also a casual dick, but that's easily overlooked by his charisma.

That is all.

In movies we love our intelligent douches, and our societal villains.

I like them in real life as well... I'm almost like them... except for the fact that I'm not rich... or a quarterback... or... dammit... :(

I love Iron Man because I love Robert Downey, Jr. Plain and simple, thank you please. He's my heart throb.

True that, which is why I'm not in love with RDJ or Tony.
I come to these movies for Gwyneth but yeah Tony's a big douche.

Wow - you've got it down to a tee, Simon. Though I really liked Iron Man, the whole Scarface comparison is probably true. And how many of those idiots probably even SAW Scarface?? Tools.

You make a point, but he's a great character. It's not like I want to hang out with Tony Stark; I just want to watch him for 2 hours.

One of the main problems with losing weight, and the main reason as to why people quit,
is the fact that they have a pretty big appetite.
Assuming this is the case, we determinedly sway you to read the whole
page. Then I took these dietary supplements and now Im again in shape.
