More Trailer Thoughts: Iron Man 2, Inception

I forgot to mention these in the previous post.

IM2 - I'm going to go see it, it doesn't have to sell me on anything. Downey is still the perfect Tony Stark, smug, cocky, and charming. Two things worth pointing out. First, War Machine, if you're not a comic book fan, you probably just thought "why is there a silver and black Iron Man at the end?" That is War Machine, he's the character Rhodes from the first movie, although now he's played by Don Cheadle, and he's a more militarisitic counterpart to Iron Man. I've never been a huge fan of the Iron Man comic, so I don't know too much about War Machine, other than I always thought it was cool that he had a shoulder mounted chain gun. Second point: the villain this time around is Ripchord, portrayed by Mickey Rourke. The funny thing about Rourke is that every time I see him in a movie, I think that he can't possibly look any worse, and I'm wrong, every single time! Things are not helped here by the choice to give Ripchord a "grill" of metal crowns on his front teeth... *shudder*

Inception - With Chris Nolan, wh0 gave us the two greatest Batman movies ever, behind it, I'm sold, even before I saw the trailer. This is an interactive scifi acid trip, kind of like a live action version of the anime movie, Paprika.
