Iron Man

io9's review of Iron Man, by the radiant Charlie Jane Anders, is spot on.
Iron Man is the first comic-book movie that's actually better than its source material. That's partly because Iron Man is one of the most boring characters in the history of comics, but it's also because the movie manages to transcend its source.
Oh, and don't make the mistake I did by leaving before the end credits finish; rumour has it there's a rockin' monk's reward.

Iron Man was practically flawless as a super hero flick; it drops pretty obvious hints that would indicate a sequel as well... i'm thinking the next one should be equally great
