Iron Man 3 review

Went over to Tamworth today with Sallie and the two older boys to check out Iron Man 3 (and a few other things we could fit in). It’s the first Iron Man I’ve actually seen at the movies (well, not counting The Avengers of course) and none of us were disappointed! It’s just really great ...
