Freaking amazing. The entire cast and crew do a fantastic job.
Does Disney even exist in the Marvel universe? Was that an awkward moment at the Disney-buys-Marvel-negotiations? “Um yeah…Howard Stark replaces Walt Disney in our universe”
RICHARD SHERMAN WROTE THE JINGLE USED IN THE ARCHIVED STARK EXPO FOOTAGE (it’s called “Make Way for Tomorrow Today”). EEEEE!
Jon Favreau must really love AC/DC as he features them very prominently in both Iron Man movies so far.
Sam Rockwell ALWAYS seems so sleazy to me.
I know the strawberry vendor! He was in Torrance Cultural Arts Center’s summer production South Pacific (circa 2002) as Stewpot! Ha! It’s always fun to pick him out in movies. He was in one of the Fast and The Furious trailers as the truck driver who’s rig is being dismantled while he’s driving it.
Having read some reviews, my language/opinions have been slightly tainted/biased, but there are still some things worth saying. In comic book movies, the antagonist plays almost as important a role as the protagonist. That being said, Sam Rockwell’s character mucked up the works a bit in terms of antagonist just like in the first film you had the leader of the 10 Rings being one of the antagonists. Whiplash (expertly played by Mickey Rourke) was a pretty awesome antagonist though…shame Sam Rockwell had to steal his thunder.
The thing I love the very most about both Iron Man movies is the holographic/3-D tech (AKA Jarvis). It’s very fun to imagine such an interactive computing experience when right now we’re just goofing around with tech akin to the dummy robot that keeps futzing about (to great one-liners from Robert Downey, Jr.).
