Iron Man

Up there with Indy 4 and Prince Caspian, Iron Man was one of the top movies I was looking forward to this summer. And thankfully, I was not disappointed. In fact, just about every aspect of the movie impressed me. As I expected, Robert Downey Jr. captured Tony Stark better than anyone else could have. The wit, charm, and intensity he brought to the character incorporated everything essential about the billionaire industrialist. He’s a playboy, eccentric genius, with a drinking problem. But when Stark discovers that his own company’s weapons are being used by terrorists, he decides to live a life of purpose and make some big changes.

Fred Claus

The Invasion

The Invasion

When a shuttle falls to earth, mysterious spores are found in the wreckage. And those exposed to the alien substance begin displaying strange, emotionless behavior. Soon Carol Bennell (Nicole Kidman) becomes sucked into a nightmare where no one is who they seem to be. Her friend and colleague Ben Driscoll (Daniel Craig) helps Carol discover that the alien organism infects people and changes them when they fall asleep. While trying to stay awake, Carol must avoid the growing number of changed zombie-like people and find her missing son who may hold the key to stopping the invasion.

The Invasion is literally a non-stop, heart-pounding thriller. As I left the theater, I felt like I had just had 10 cups of coffee. Emotions and suspense run rampant from beginning to end. Kidman and Craig have wonderful chemistry. And the acting was incredible, especially from Kidman and the young boy who played her son.

Coming down from such an intense adrenalin rush, I must admit it was a fun ride.
