Iron Man 3: Three's As Good As One Plus Two

True confessions.

When it comes to super heroes, the Movie Slut is partial to Spider Man. It's the whole Spidey back story. He's so sensitive, so vulnerable, such a nerd. Just being in high school makes him disarmingly pitiable.

Having said that, she's also a fan of The Hulk and Superman. (Can't wait for the new one with Kevin Costner as the Man of Steel's good old dad.)

So what did she think of the new Iron Man flick?
Loved, loved, loved it.

The old good vs. evil plot has never been more fun. The villains, played by Ben Kingsly and Guy Pearce, are perfection. Still, as always, it's Robert Downey Junior in the title role who steals the show with his snappy, witty dialogue and unwillingness to take himself, or anything else, seriously.

Who was it that said, "When you can't see the one you love on the big screen, love the one you see?"
