Barbecue & Movie

May 4

Pangga and I finally used the grill we bought and started barbecuing. We marinated pork with soy sauce, lemon/ vinegar, pepper, garlic, thyme and a dash of dill weed.

Delicious Pork Kebabs!

We watched Iron Man today. I was skeptical if the movie would be good when I heard that that Robert Downey Jr. was going to perform as Tony Stark. After we saw it, all doubts vanished because Downey Jr. really played the character well. One of the best adaptations from comic book hero to silver screen.

We liked watching how Iron Man's armor was being created : the cool technology and the humorous glitches during testing. It was funny watching his assistant robot handling the fire extinguisher and waiting to douse any fire. We are so looking forward to the next one! definitely 4 stars!


Synopsis:

"From Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures comes Iron Man, an action-packed take on the tale of wealthy philanthropist Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), who develops an invulnerable robotic suit to fight the throes of evil. In addition to being filthy rich, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark is also a genius inventor. When Stark is kidnapped and forced to build a diabolical weapon, he instead uses his intelligence and ingenuity to construct an indestructible suit of armor and escape his captors. Once free, Stark discovers a deadly conspiracy that could destabilize the entire globe, and dons his powerful new suit on a mission to stop the villains and save the world. Gwyneth Paltrow co-stars as his secretary, Virginia "Pepper" Potts, while Terrence Howard fills the role of Jim "Rhodey" Rhodes, one of Stark's colleagues, whose military background leads him to help in the formation of the suit. Jon Favreau directs, with Marvel movie veterans Avi Arad and Kevin Feige producing." - Jeremy Wheeler, All Movie Guide
