I know I don't normally give movie reviews, but last night I went to the cinema and watched iron man and I have to say it was the best film I have seen so far this year. For any of your reading this who have not seen the film, I wont be giving away any of the plot, but I do intend to talk a little about some of the characters and other aspects that I liked.
So Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr) is a Billionaire and what a life style head leads, he has so many great gadgets. First up there is Jarvis, now Jarvis is the computer that runs his house, and seemingly everything else technology wise in Tony Stark's world. Then there is his really cool robotic helpers one of which is just so cute, I know it is just a robotic arm but its more what it does and how it does it rather than what it looks like that makes me say it is cute.
But the very best helper is of course Pepper Potts (played by Gwyneth Paltrow), now how cool would it be to have a personal assistant like Pepper Potts, she literally takes care of almost every aspect of his life and spoke my wife's favourite line of the movie when she said, 'I do anything and everything Mr. Stark requires. Including occasionally taking out the trash. Will that be all?'.
Now one odd thing I did find was I thought Pepper Potts had really sexy shoes, I say odd because the shoes in question are really high heels and open toe which are generally two things I don't like in ladies shoes. I mentioned that I liked these shoes to Lara at the time and she said then, 'surely not, you don't normally like anything like that'. Looking at the still images now I can't see the attraction, but when I saw the movie and Pepper was wearing these shoes I did think they where hot so maybe something is lost in the still image. Or maybe all the junk food I was eating (popcorn, ice cream, minstrels and Coke) was going to my head. Mum if your reading this yes I know I was being a piggy but I didn't have any dinner that night!
And below is a close up, I found these images on a Shoe Blog where I also learned that these shoes apparently look like 'fetish foot ware' and that they are actually louboutins shoes or more specifically “tenue” by christian louboutin and have a 6 inch heel! I was pleased to note that I was not the only person who noticed that poor Gwyneth was wearing these shoes in metal grates (and of course her heels didn't get stuck once, I wonder how many takes they took or maybe they had a sheet of clear perspex over the grates). Anyway I was amazed just how many website's there are dedicated to Gwyneth Paltrow's foot ware' when I did a search to try to find these shoes again. Oh and the price should any of my lady readers want a pair of these ankle breakers you can get them for $435.
Acting wise, I was impressed with both Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr. who I think both portrayed their characters brilliantly but I think the guy who played Dr Yinsen did the best job, his character must have been a hard one to play but Shaun Toub got the perfect balance and even though his character did not get to appear for long he was great.
Seeing as this is a slots blog and all I guess I should really tell you all that there is a great Iron man slots game and that we have of course reviewed it for you. The Iron Man slots game is based on the new movie and is available to play at Intercasino.
