Iron Man, a review by goodguy

With a thread title like "Watch Log", I really should post more often. Anyway, since Jon asked so nicely, here are a few words on ...

   Iron Man (2008)
Written by: Mark Fergus, Hawk Ostby, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway
Directed by: Jon Favreau
Starring: Robert Downey Jr.
DVD: R2-UK Paramount (oct 27, 2008)

My rating:

Cover blurb: Suit up for action with ROBERT DOWNEY JR, in the ultimate adventure movie you've been waiting for, Iron Man! When jet-setting genius-industrialist Tony Stark is captured in enemy territory, he builds a high-tech suit of armour to escape. Now, he's on a mission to save the world as a hero who's built, not born, to be unlike any other. Co-starring TERRENCE HOWARD, JEFF BRIDGES and GWYNETH PALTROW, it's a fantastic, high-flying journey that is "hugely entertaining" (Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal).

Overall, an enjoyable experience. The story is simple and doesn't always make much sense; the political aspect is nothing more than window dressing (although thankfully not as exploitative as Rambo), yet in shines in a lot of details. It is funny, but mostly in a dry-witted way. It is emotional, but that too is mostly underplayed and rarely melodramatic. Robert Downey Jr expectedly is marvelous with such material, so is Gwyneth Paltrow, and both have a great chemistry. Jeff Bridges unfortunately has to go completely bonkers at the end, but before that, he also gives a fine performance.

The action sequences lack the excitement of, for example, Transformers, but they are adequate. I usually enjoy the character stuff more anyway. And like Transformers, the movie gets a bit boring in the final confrontation. Watching Tony Stark design and build the Iron Man suite in his Malibu house, assisted only by an equally dry-witted AI, then taking it on a test fly - that is just so much more entertaining than two metal monsters pounding on each other.

Tremors 3: Back To Perfection, a review by addicted2dvd

Title: Tremors 3: Back To Perfection
Year: 2001
Director: Brent Maddock
Rating: PG
Length: 103 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: 5.1
Subtitles: English, French

Michael Gross
Shawn Christian
Susan Chuang
Charlotte Stewart
Ariana Richards
Tony Genaro

Those morphing, man-eating monsters are shaking things up again in the dusty little town of Perfection, Nevada - and durvivalist Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) is the only soution to the latest evolution! Aided by a couple of young entrepreneurs (Shawn Christian and Susan Chang), Burt pits his impressive knowledge of weaponry against the newest and dealiest generation of Graboids. If Burt and his new partners can't find a way to stop them, then the creatures that put Perfection on the map will wipe it right off the face of the earth. Tremors 3 promises earth-shaking, explosive, edge-of-your-seat entertainment!

Production Notes

My Thoughts:
In this one we get to see a new mutation again... this time it goes from Graboid (worm-like creature) to Shrieker (heat seeking creature) to Ass-Blaster (flying shrieker). While I still enjoyed this one for what it is... it has gone downhill. Each movie in this franchise got sillier.... but it still manages to entertain. for me this one is slightly above average.

My Rating
Out of a Possible 5

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom

     Everybody Loves Raymond: Season One (1996/United States)
IMDb | Wikipedia

HBO Home Video (United States)
Length:506 min.

Audio:English: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround, Spanish: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround, French: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround, Commentary: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround

Standup comedian Ray Romano stars as Ray Barone, a successful sportswriter and devoted husband to Debra (Patricia Heaton, Beethoven) who must deal with his brother and parents, who happen to live across the street. Frank (Peter Boyle, While You Were Sleeping) and Marie(Doris Roberts, Remington Steele) love to meddle in his life, while older brother Robert (Brad Garrett, Suicide Kings) sometimes resents his success. Nevertheless, Ray manages to keep a bight outlook and a sense of humor as he balances his family and work lives.

Everybody Loves Raymond
1.01 Pilot
Writer: Philip Rosenthal (Writer)
Director: Michael Lembeck
Cast: Ray Romano (Ray), Patricia Heaton (Debra), Brad Garrett (Robert), Madylin Sweeten (Ally), Doris Roberts (Marie), Peter Boyle (Frank), Stephen Lee (Leo), Amber Ferreira (Matthew & Gregory), Drew Ferreira (Matthew & Gregory), Justin Ferreira (Matthew & Gregory)

This is a series, where I usually enjoy an episode when I watch it, but I never rush out to watch them. I still have the last three seasons in my unwatched pile.
