In Better News

Go see Iron Man. Right Freaking Now.

It's one of the best superhero movies I've ever seen (and folks, I've seen a bunch of them-even the Captain America stinker). Everything about this movie is good-the visuals, the soundtrack, the armor:

Oh, yeah, and Gwyneth Paltrow with red hair.

We here at the Spot have always loved superheroes and redheads. This is a winner.

Seriously, it's fun stuff. Robert Downey Jr. is a likeable jerk inventor, he trashes a Taliban stand-in group (a minor gripe, but it's setting up the sequel), then has a nice fight with a giant bad guy, the now-strange looking bald Jeff Bridges. And stick around until the credits are through-there's a nice surprise at the end, and I'm not talking about Black Sabbath.
