Iron Man

Went to see the Iron Man movie at the weekend with the rest of the family. I thought it was great. RDJ did a great job as Tony Stark and the Iron Man armour was awesome.

My two boys (ages 6 and 9) were disappointed that there wasn’t enough action on the screen. It is a common complaint with them about comic book movies that they want non-stop action and people in uniform all the time – no talky bits and definitely no smoochy bits.

My wife, on the otherhand, was embarrassed to be one of the about 10% of the audience who knew about/bothered to wait through the credits for the extra scene. Geeks r us.

I suppose the blockbuster of the summer I am looking forward to the most is The Dark Knight. I loved Batman Begins and Heath Ledger looks superb as a psychotic Joker.

Good Luck Rangers

Wouldn’t you know it? My first post on my RevolutionSF blog has nothing to do with SciFi.

Currently listening to the radio commentary (hope to switch to TV when the kids go to bed) of the UEFA Cup Final. My team, Glasgow Rangers, are playing Zenit St. Petersburg and I hoping that they can win a second European trophy (it’s only been 36 years since the last one).

I hope they make the wait worthwhile.

Update: They lost 2-0. Can’t expect anything less when then don’t have the ball and can’t hold on to it when they do. I hope they don’t make us wait another 36 years for a European final – I might not be around that long!!!
