naanima: Tony Stark is hot ([Ironman] Merchant of Death)
Still the bestest film ever. Directing, acting, script and plot. Just so damn awesome. So, this will take my viewing of the film to, um, time #6.

I was thinking that Jon Favreau and the writing team for the film are geniuses; in the time span of 30 seconds they managed to cross through 40 years of canon and pretty much update Iron Man to the new millennium. There is much admiration on my part.

Now knowing a bit more about the Iron Man comics canon, I really, really, really hope that Favreau will continue to follow Ellis’ Extremis plot. After all they pretty much took most of Iron Man’s origin from it, and the design for the movie Iron Man suit is heavily influenced by Granov, artist for the same series. It would be awesome.

Also, I wonder how they are going to handle the whole ‘need armour now to fight evil’ as opposed to spending several minutes donning the armour with the aid of machines. Please not the suit case.

In short; I love the film.

[ profile] velithya, [ profile] im_newsletter is pretty damn good when it comes to compiling IM fics, hence, I may be repeating myself. But the following are some of my favourite fics.

Everything written by [ profile] hackthis, her lj is wonderfully tagged. Here for her Iron Man fics. Mostly gen.

Gen: Four Times Pepper Potts Saved the World (and One Time She Didn't. Oh gods, I LOVE this to bits. Pepper Potts is awesome, and her relationship with Tony here is one of trust, snark and OMFG! My heart breaks at times.

Slash: Like Poles - Tony & Harry. Marvel creates some really fucked up rich people.

Slash: More Tony and Harry.

Het: Shoeboz Greetings - Pepper have a life of her own. Agent Coulson understand shoes, and it is just awesome.

Slash: "something somewhere has to break," - Tony Stark and Nathan Petrelli.

Slash: The Value of Secrets - Um, Tony and Jarvis gets to know one and another. The bits about the real Jarvis makes the whole thing very surreal at times. And yes, I can see movie!Tony doing this.

Slash: Once More Unto the Beach - Tony and Rhodey, 4th installment. The linked fic have links to the previous fic.

Gen: Extraordinary and Bonding - How Tony and Rhodey became friends.

Slash: Drive You Wild - Um, Sam and Dean meets Tony Stark.

ETA: Another fic rec - Slash: "Paul said to Peter, you got to rock yourself a little harder" - Tony and Rhodey. This fic is awesome.

Gen: To Be Done After That. - Billionaires own million-dollar pieces of real estate.

Gen: 48 hours - Tony Stark doesn't know how he feels. About being tortured, about being a superhero, or about the possible existence of magic and aliens.

Jon Favreau may not be directing Iron Man 2.

I'll reiterate what I said on someone else's lj.

Well, fucking cock sucking dicks.

ETA: We are SAVED!

It is Nikki Finke, it has to be the truth!

Iron Man, again. Yes, again.

This makes me giggle. From what I have read of the Iron Man comics, and the current Marvel universe, yes, Iron Man, you really do get the short end of the stick.

[ profile] velithya, want to email me your mobile number so we can coordinate a time and place for IM viewing?

Iron Man, again.

Just came back from my second viewing of Iron Man. I think the movie got better. Honestly, I missed so much the first time round. It is only on the repeat viewing that I have come to truly appreciate how hot Tony Stark is. Oh, and that the film is just truly awesome in so many other ways. The movie does not lag, the pacing is perfect, the actors are amazing, and the special effects is not the main focus so much as a prop to assist in the experience of the story. Gods, I’m in love with this film.

Where I talk about some other stuff that doesn't involve thoughts of licking Tony Stark )

In conclusion, TONY STARK IS AWESOME, and I can’t wait for the SEQUEL!

P.S. Depending how things pan out I will probably start collecting the current Iron Man comics, it is kind of awesome.

Saw Iron Man on Saturday. It was pretty damn awesome. The role of Tony Stark was made for Robert Downey Jr., and I'm very glad I stayed till the END of the credits because OMFG ). This is the only film where Gwyneth Paltrow did not irritate me; in fact I thought she was just lovely as Pepper Potts.

The preview for The Incredible Hulk looked amazing, and I’m going to watch the film because Edward Norton is like a god and Tony Stark will be making a cameo appearance! Also, Indiana Jones preview – it can be either awesome or really, really, really bad.
