Ironman

Unreal. Robert Downey Jr. is the best actor alive today. I thought he proved it in Zodiac, where he was so convincing as a newspaper reporter of the 1970s that I gave copies of the DVD to my students.
Ironman is the best movie I've seen in years. I hope they make a whack of money and do a sequel.

And that's just one aspect of it. That's the decision regarding the insurance company's claim that it had to cover Thomson for all its costs. If memory serves, Kansa Insurance went bankrupt after that. Certainly, this decision sent a message to libel insurers they'd be on the hook, and they should govern themselves accordingly.
