Just to pretend I am a professional critic, I am going to give critiques and grades to the following movies:
I finally saw Iron Man the other day. Smashing! Robert Downey Jr. is definitely on my list of neurotic actors I adore. I don't know much about comics, and didn't know the story of this character. The plot was quite different from what I expected, which probably made me like it even more. Grade: Solid A.
I also saw 28 Days Later, which I would call a "smarter zombie movie" than most. More importantly, it didn't scare the bejesus out of me (like, oh, The Shining or The Exorcist). The movie was more about the epidemic than anything else, which made me happy. Grade: B (83%)
And lastly, might I suggest an outstanding movie for Halloween? Rear Window has been one of my favorites for a long time, because it is my Mom's favorite, and she made me watch it at a young age. It's not scary. But ohhhhhh is it thrilling! It's hard to beat the suspense created by Alfred Hitchcock. And the two main characters? Grace Kelly and James Stewart. Priceless. Basically, you won't regret watching this. Grade: A+
