Movies We Watch

Movie: Iron Man II

Wow! I can't decided whether the first one or this one was the best. Robert Downey, Jr. again rocks as Iron Man and Mickey Rourke with that Russian accent blows me away! I forgot the dude can act, although he's not looking handsome as he was back in the day of Wild Orchid and 9 1/2 weeks.

At any rate, even thought this movie was great, I wanted to see more fights with Mickey Rourke and Iron Man, there were only two. The last fight was too short and the first one, my favorite, they should have made the fight last a little longer.

The government is trying to seize Iron Man secret weapons and they try everything in their power to seize it, and eventually they do but at what price!? While Tony Stark is fighting a deadly disease that has him close to his death! YIKES!

Also, don't stop the movie when the movie credits are rolling,  there is a preview for the "Avengers" Movie coming up!!!!

We give this movie: 10 STARS!!!

Movie: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

While watching this movie, it reminded me a lot of the The Mummy. Prince of Persia tried to be funny but not enough. I guess it tried too hard. Jake Gyllenhall becomes the fugitive prince that must stop a villain who threatens to destroy the world with a pretty cool dagger that enables the magic sand inside to go back in time. Now, this was the cool part!

Lots of cool fighting and English accent. Not a bad movie, not a great movie. This movie just falls somewhere in the middle.

John loved it!

We give it: 3 1/2 for the cool effects and English accent. It never fails!

Loved Iron Man II. Dear Husband and I actually saw it in the theater (a rare thing).

We haven't seen Prince of Persia yet. It sounds good enough to see, but I guess I'm glad I didn't rush out to see it.

Prince of Persia is not bad, but I felt it went a little too long. When you see it let me know what you thought of it!
