    It's strange to think it was only 8 years ago that the Marvel Cinematic Universe didn't exist.

    At that point there were two successul comic book series' out - the X-men, which had just released a less impressive 3rd instalment and were about to release the much derided Origins: Wolverine, and Spiderman, also coming off of a disappointing 3rd movie (which would in turn lead to the series abandonment for a few years.)

    Batman had just made a comeback with…

    Iron Man (2008) was the first release in what was to become the Marvel Cinematic Universe film franchise. Directed by Jon Favreau, it's success both critically and financially gave the MCU a base from which to create this mega franchise and also turned Robert Downey Jr into the biggest star in Hollywood.

    The film essential tells the story of how and why Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) becomes the eponymous superhero. I won't spoil the story here. Needless to say,…

    Still just as fun and entertaining as when it first came out.

    I decided to revisit all the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies leading up the up the anticipated release of Age of Ultron and I have to say that in hindsight Iron Man was a perfect way to kickstart the MCU. It has strong comic book ties while also doing its own thing. It is well acted (Special shoutout to Jeff Bridges who is my forever mancrush) and it set the stage for all the superhero goodness we have to look forward to well into 2019.

    Make mine Marvel.

    Iron Man. That's kind of catchy. It's got a nice ring to it. I mean it's not technically accurate. The suit's a gold titanium alloy, but it's kind of provocative, the imagery anyway.

    Though it gets repetitious with its suit-building montages Iron Man has, like Tony Stark himself, bags of charm and enough money to make it all look good.

    I feel like I have seen this so many times and yet I have not made a review on Letterboxd!

    I was not up for this when it came out-tired of comic book movies in general and not too thrilled by general Marvel offerings at that time (X Men running out of steam and all, a second Hulk reinvention in five years, etc). However, I heard good things from Stuart Klawans or some good press about Jon Favreau's effort or…
