Iron Man (2008 film)
#IronMan is a 2008 American #superhero film based on the #MarvelComics character of the same name, produced by #MarvelStudios and distributed by #ParamountPictures .1 It is the first film in the Marvel #Cinematic#Universe . The film was directed by Jon Favreau, with a screenplay by the writing teams of Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby and Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. It stars #RobertDowneyJr ., #TerrenceHoward , #JeffBridges , #ShaunToub , and #GwynethPaltrow . In Iron Man, Tony Stark, an industrialist and master engineer, builds a powered exoskeleton and becomes the #technologically#advanced superhero Iron Man.
The film had been in development since 1990 at Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox, or New Line Cinema at various times, before Marvel Studios reacquired the rights in 2006. Marvel put the project in production as its first self-financed film, with Paramount Pictures as its distributor. Favreau signed on as director, aiming for a naturalistic feel, and he chose to shoot the film primarily in California, rejecting the East Coast setting of the comics to differentiate the film from numerous superhero films set in New York City-esque environments. Filming began in March 2007 and concluded in June. During filming, the actors were free to create their own dialogue because pre-production was focused on the story and action. Rubber and metal versions of the armors, created by Stan Winston's company, were mixed with computer-generated imagery to create the title character.
Iron Man premiered in Sydney on April 14, 2008, and was released in theaters on May 2, 2008. The film was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $585 million and garnering critical acclaim. Downey's performance as Tony Stark was particularly praised. The American Film Institute selected the film as one of the ten best of the year. It was also nominated for two #AcademyAwards for Best Sound Editing and Best Visual Effects. Two sequels, Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3, were released on May 7, 2010, and May 3, 2013, respectively.#screenplay#Cinema#Scifi#Movie#mylist#Cinematography#OfficialTrailer#movies#theatr#video#film

As the kick off to the now biggest cinematic universe ever, it's safe to say 10 years on that Iron Man worked, and it did so well. Im sure everyone's familiar with this film, but I'll carry on anyway. #TonyStark is a billionaire weapons creator who gets captured and forced to build a weapon for people who want to use it for bad, being the creative man he is (spoiler alert) he builds the Iron Man suit instead which is must use to basically save the world, as well with himself (being tony) Iron Man was a fairly new film in the superhero or comic book genre (exceptions being batman, superman and spiderman) so this meant there was so much more to be played around with. Yet little did they know this would be pretty much the same storyline 17ish movies in. The film boasts brilliant animation, my only issue would be with the Jericho Missile at the start which you don't really notice but I'll let it slip, the CG on the suits it brilliant, they're so sleek and so beautiful to look at. There is a lot of comedy in the film too, another trademark of the #MCU films, Tony and Robert are a 100% meant for this, humour is the best in the Iron Man films because of his character and casting. All this is supported by a great theme/score and an amazing cast, a film hard to be topped but to this day still being the highest rated of the MCU.
A snippet of my #MovieReview of #HellOrHighWater :
Hell or High Water, written by Sicario’s Taylor Sheridan, shows some of those gritty details that breathe life back into the shallow, feel-good classical genre. Here, we see what #Texans under the law truly act like: they use a bulldozer to bury their car under dirt to hide any evidence, and they throw their chips in poker to increase their luck, all with the right rationalizations explained about their backstories to help you understand their turmoil. The two black-masked thieves we focus on here, played by the greatly underrated #ChrisPine (Into the Woods) and #BenFoster (3:10 to Yuma), make a living out of hopping from bank-to-bank as the only means to financially secure themselves. You normally wouldn’t want to care for a couple of crooks like them, but once you learn their background, you’ll understand.
Sheridan’s plot is not a terribly original concept for a modern-day cowboy movie, virtually copying the same tone and concept as the brilliant #NoCountryForOldMen . This #Western only sets itself apart from others by its lack of international relationships.
Even so, the hearts of all the men living here will haunt you. Each of them abuses their second amendment rights, even the filthy-rich passerby at the gas station carries firearms at all times. The town by no means chose to side with these crooks, especially not the near-retiring sheriff, played with a compellingly rich voice by #JeffBridges (The Big Lebowski). Despite his wishes, he sets off a cat-and-mouse chase to restore integrity to these disturbers of the peace. Think of it like a Bonnie & Clyde type of thriller, except without the fun, gore, and romance. Or better yet, a Thelma & Louise type of criminal’s sympathy story, except without any strong female characters.
Hell or High Water will last as one of those pictures made by men from the old days for men from the old days. Not everyone will come out from the experience satisfied, but for the thinking-type of viewer, Mackenzie’s new take on a familiar concept will knock ‘em out dead.
