I CANNOT belieeevee that Marvel are making yet another movie simply to accomodate another Character in the upcoming Avengers movie!! And to make that Iron Mans mother is a really shit idea. I am, frankly, appalled. If points of View was still on the tv (either Terry or Ann would do) I would be having my letter of complaint read out in a rather agitated actors voice right now!

So what will "Iron Lady" bring to the party? She gonna Iron Caps tights, Thors cape, or stitch up yet another of Dr Banners shirts after he's had one of his shit fits?

She'll probably bring the 'sas' to Iron Man's gas.

In which front row do you pack down Sutty?

Why wait till 2012 when it puts Streep out of this year's Oscar competition? Usually they release stinkers in January, is this an ominous critique of the film?

And I saw in the sneak preview yesterday:

The Iron Lady
It`s gonna be a busy next few months in the house of Lady Streep when they`ll fix her up with a new chimney. She`s gonna need one this coming award season, because with her performance as the suffering of Alzheimers Magret Tatcher she`s most probably gonna win a truckload of awards. Including, hopefull, her third Oscar.
Hopefull indeed, because that would be so truly well deserved. What an extremely good role she puts up on the screen here!! She transforms, thanks to a brillilant make-up job, really into The Iron Lady.
That of course if thé attraction of this piece.

Luckily though, that is not the only. The rest is well ok. The that the story is told (in long flashbacks) is strong, as is the way it`s shot.
The (sound)editing deserves a lot of praise as well. On all parts this is a very well conceived film. And nowhere it becomes, like sometimes happens too often in biopics, melancholic or cheesy.

Based on the trailer I wasn`t really drawn to this one but in looking I wasn`t 100 but 200% surprised by how good it was.
The Iron Lady is one towering piece of filmmaking.

8,5/10

I'm not really old/politically aware enough to have any particularly strong feelings for Thatcher, but everything I've seen about this makes it look fairly cringeworthy and vomit-inducing. Meryl Streep playing a real person and heavily made up? Couldn't look any more awards-desperate if it tried. Slightly more disturbing is that as far as the disguise goes, it doesn't look much like Thatcher really - just Meryl Streep in a wig!

This is all very face-value criticism I know, but I'm unlikely to be in the queue to be proved wrong...
