Iron Man

Sue, myself, and Jack (my 10 year-old) all thoroughly enjoyed Ironman. It's a cool blend of character action stunts and humor-hard to beat. It's probably my favorite of the movies based on comic books or graphic novels.

Made of Honor

This one surprised me. Because a lot of effort went into making it as good as it cold possibly be. Usually this kind of "high concept" comedy goes off the rail, but this one doesn't—at least not until the last few minutes. Patrick Dempsey reveals himself to be a real movie star. The biggest problem with the whole movie is actually the concept itself. But the acting more than saves it. There are a couple of scenes that shouldn't have worked, but their acting is quite brilliant.
