If you didn’t watch Iron Man this weekend, you’re in the minority. I went to see it on Saturday and was a bit disappointed. Robert Downey, Jr. was great, but the movie was a bit… lacking. Just my personal opinion.

Iron Man was pure gold at the box office.
The Marvel Comics adaptation, starring Robert Downey Jr. as the guy in the metal suit, hauled in $100.7 million during its opening weekend and $104.2 million since debuting Thursday night, the second-best premiere ever for a nonsequel, according to studio estimates.
The film’s debut was the 10th-biggest opening of all time and the fourth-biggest for a superhero movie.
