Took some time off from the Tribeca Film Fest tonight to catch an early screening of Iron Man with Mr. Weinberg. What's there to say about Iron Man? How does one put it into words so shortly after enjoying THAT kind of moviegoing experience? We have two Iron Man reviews coming up later next week, so I'll be brief with this tease: Mark my words (and I'm sure Scott W. would agree), Iron Man will change the way you look at these comic book films going forward. Ridiculously Bad Ass. And that be it for now.
Earlier in the day, I caught up with This Is Not a Robbery -- a quirky documentary about an 87-year-old bank robber. Short, sweet, to the point -- I don't really feel one way or the other, to tell you the truth. It wasn't bad and it didn't really do anything to stand out. Not the film's fault; the story itself isn't exactly feature-worthy. I dug it, though -- a review will come soon. The city is real busy right now, I'll tell you that much. It's warm, it's a weekend, there are people everywhere. Good news is I've enjoyed every film I've seen so far. Knock on wood, but I don't think that's ever happened people; I've seriously never opened a fest on that good a streak. Good times. More reviews and interviews coming; if you're itching to know about a certain film, let us know.
Iron Man. Oh man. You people are gonna devour this one.
