    Honestly....I had rather low expectations for both Iron Man and Robert Downey Jr. in it.

    Other than the stretched plot setup time...it exceeded my expectations on both fronts.

    Now my bar has been raised for I M 2...and I suspect I will not be disappointed.

    Isn't Whiplash a chick? Thought he was supposed to be Crimson Dynamo.

    Yesterday I received the Blu-Ray from Amazon and finally got to see Iron Man 2. Didn't get a chance to see it this past summer.

    First, I was very pleased. I thought it was every bit as good as the first. Lots of action and laughs.

    The Blu-Ray is top notch. My subwoofer was quite busy through the whole movie. PQ was excellent.

    Definitely a must see.

    On Amazon I see a three disc for $24.99, and single for $17.99 on Blu. Other than the single says it takes 11-13 days, is there any difference except no DVD or digital copy?

    I don't need a DVD, and the one time I thought about redeeming a digital copy, the code had expired so I don't need that either.

    If that's the only difference, I might save myself the $7.
