"Iron Man 2" is a polished, high-octane sequel, not as good as the original but building once again on a quirky performance by Robert Downey Jr. The superhero genre doesn't necessarily require good acting, but when it's there (as in "Iron Man" and "The Dark Knight"), that takes it up a level. Downey here gives us a Tony Stark who is cockier and more egotistical than ever. Or, and here's the key, he seems to ...
It's getting difficult to tell Brendan Fraser's hammy comedies apart.

Do you ever hear yourself or someone near you saying something like, "I really want to do something different, but I'm stuck here in this ____ (fill in the blank - job, house, city, relationship)." Or, "I can't wait to get away from all this on my vacation," implying that your everyday life is a torture to be escaped. I am sure most of us have used language like this at one point or another.

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on.
