i have heard nothing but positive things about IRON MAN, by the way - from my pals and their shop talk (ie: all the special efx dorks i know) to everyman on the street who just likes his $10's worth at the cinema
I know, me too, which is why I couldn't believe how horrible it was. Man, if Speed Racer had the bad word on the street buzz compared to Iron Man, I can't imagine how bad it must be. Iron Man WAS NOT GOOD, by any stretch of the imagination. Don't listen to people who tell you otherwise. I thought it was awful.
I saw the Indy movie today, and overall it was pretty meh. Didn't annoy me as much as Iron Man, but they are obviously coasting on the goodwill built up by the previous movies. If Ford wasn't there to lend this movie a bit of dignity, it would be a flop. Nobody would care if not for the nostalgia for the earlier, better films.
Slightly better than Temple of Doom, I guess? I>III>IV>II
