10:56 am: There is a plan to go and see Persepolis at the Curzon Soho (on Shaftesbury Avenue near Dean Street) on Thursday at 19:10. Want to join us?

Saw Iron Man on Monday. It was magnificient - and that rare thing - a near uniformly critically-praised film which also took a huge opening weekend. And it wasn't just a special effects vehicle. There was acting and wit and stuff. Probably going to see it again at some point. Marvel Studios - this is the first film Marvel have made themselves - will be delighted - and have already set a date for a sequel (April 2010), along with dates for Thor (June 2010), Cap (May 2011) and Avengers (July 2011) movies.

Hugh Hefner was looking a bit rough. Plus the kidnap at the start did make me think "Mr Stark we wish you to make us a flying car" what with Pots as well (though obviously not Professor Pots).
Not a "turn off your brain" big dumb blockbuster experience and not afraid to laugh at itself without going overboard and turning into a parody
Hopefully Sams career will be rescued from the "i am the guy who is hired to say motherf**ker and nigger a lot in films" trough it's currently in ( i assume you stayed through the 15 minutes of credits (may be a slight exaggeration but only slight) for the sequel setup scene).
Problem with a Thor movie is trying to imagine how they can do it without making it into the superhero equivalent of 300 and its gay under er over tones though.

Persepolis is good too btw. Rather dark at times despite the trailers concentrating on the humorous bits. Not as dark as "Reading Lolita in Tehran" though

Saw it too. It was indeed magnificent; far, far better than most superhero movies.
