Dear Blogger,

The blockbuster season has officially started with the release of "Iron Man". Before this movie was released, I have not even heard of "Iron Man", the Marvel comic creation. Obviously, I am not an avid comic book reader.

"Iron Man" is basically Marvel's version of DC's "Batman". Both are essentially superheroes without superpowers. They are just super rich and super technical. After watching "Iron Man", this man of metal (it's ironically not made of iron by the way) wins me hands down!

"Batman" may have attracted Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale to zip up into its latex suit, but none of these very good-looking guys has the magnetism of Robert Downey Jr in "Iron Man".

It is no secret that I am intensely smitten by bad boys with brains, and RDJ is the Hollywood bad boy with an incredible talent. I've always loved watching him in movies, back from his Oscar-nominated performance in "Chaplin" to bit parts in "Bowfinger". He is not so much a pretty boy, but damn he oozes sex appeal in his every pore!

Ipy and I watched it at the new Cathay cineplex at Downtown East. The new annex of this eastsiders' favourite resort has not been officially opened yet, but from the looks of the tenants available, it has potential.

Thank God it's not just another mall! It's more like a recreation centre with a mini theme park and arcades. One thing's for sure. No one will ever get hungry there. Plenty of F&B tenants!
