Opening Films 

by INLANDER STAFF & r & & r & IRON MAN & lt;BR & & lt;BR & Robert Downey Jr. gets the role of his career and steps right up to it, while Jon Favreau does the same in the director spot. The Marvel comic springs vibrantly to life with action and comedy in the story of a weapons maker who sees the light and wants to change direction in his life, right around the same time he develops a "heart problem" and invents a metal suit that lets him blow away the bad guys of the world. Great fun, and no doubt the start of a new franchise. (ES) Rated PG-13





MADE OF HONOR


Tom (Patrick Dempsey) and Hannah (Michelle Monaghan) are best friends. Near Hannah's wedding, for which Tom has been asked to be a bridesmaid, he realizes he loves her. That's when the trouble starts. What had been a charming if undaring story about two friends who might be able to fall in love stops trusting itself. Slapstick rears its ugly head out of nowhere. Colin, Hannah's fianc & eacute; is Scottish, which leads to a whole "aren't foreigners funny?" thing. Then come the fat jokes -- one of Tom's fellow bridesmaids is less than svelte. Then come the gay jokes -- because of course Tom must be gay if he's the bride's witness. Blah. (MAJ) Rated PG-13

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
