Save Ferrous

I’m a geek. That doesn’t mean I love The Transformers movie just because it exists. I’m also no fanboy. In fact, I live by three words: Crap is crap. And also: Don't be itchy. Stick with the first for now.

Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, steely-eyed missile man

So on to the next super hero franchise … Iron Man, based on the Marvel comic I loved as a kid. Tony Stark is the T-Top Pontiac Firebird of the super hero world, like Magnum P.I. and Tranzor Z rolled into one.

I was really nervous about Hollywood desicrating my moustached mecha-main man and afraid of a future that included stadium seating, cell phone glow and $45 dollar sodas.

And Robert Downey Jr.? Really?

Here’s the trailer from San Diego Comicon and big ups to The Belmish for hosting: http://theblemish.com/2007/07/iron-man-has-some-footage/

My verdict: Feel these nipples. I think Iron Man will kill other robot movies right in the face.

Optimus Prime-Rib: Defeated by a guy named Tony... and LDL.

I wish I knew what you were talking about, but I don't. You are the sexiest FF on the planet though. You and that Optimus Prime guy at the end.
