Iron Man 3

Well, we played our final card for getting Peanut to come out on his/her own.  My brother-in-law was adamant that a trip to the movie theater was a lock for getting labour going.  Nope.  Peanut remains stubbornly in place.

But on the up side, we did get to see Iron Man 3!  What a blast.  Maybe not as good as the first one but far superior to Iron Man 2.  I'm a big fan of Shane Black's work and its nice to see the Marvel universe give this guy a chance.  Much like Joss Whedon, he writes snappy and funny dialogue but very nice to see he has the chops to put together some awesome action sequences as well.

It would have been easy to trot somebody out there to make 90 minutes of the Iron Man suit kicking ass but they really did a good job of making the drama about how Stark doesn't always have the suit and how he copes without it.  Great movie.  So glad we saw something good to remove the stanky aftertaste of G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

Now back to waiting...
