But in leaving, they arrive at something greater: Life stripped to its core Life as a journey in the truest sense of the word Life as transformation This is the story of those hikers, what they were looking for, and what they find. 165 days 2,650 miles 6,000,000 steps

“In my attempt to rewatch all the MCU-movies chronologically I began with the first Iron Man. To cut to the chase: itu0026#39;s still good. A couple of things astonished me, though:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFirst of all, a common mistake of the later Marvel-movies isnu0026#39;t made here. There is actually some sort of character development visible. Tony ends the movie as a totally different person. Of course, in an origin story itu0026#39;s easier to have your protagonist change but letu0026#39;s compare for a second: nIs Ant-man really a changed man at the end of the movie? What about Star Lord? What about Thor? Black Widow? Hawkeye?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThen again, you have to give it to the director that he really made a well-paced, well-balanced movie. There is action, humour, drama, world establishing, all in great balance. The final fight isnu0026#39;t stretched too long and therefore doesnu0026#39;t get boring. You canu0026#39;t underestimate this in our age of 45 mins battles at the end of movies.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDuring my re-watch I also noticed how u0026#39;down to earthu0026#39; this movie is if you compare it to some of the more recent MCU-entries. It just looks more real than them. Itu0026#39;s set in a world that at least COULD be real which makes us care more for the characters and their actions. More explosions and obvious cgi-effects donu0026#39;t improve a movie. So the movie doesnu0026#39;t feel as bloated as some other superhero flicks.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFinally, Iron Man is still fun to watch and not just a vehicle to set up a franchise. If youu0026#39;ve spent the last couple of years on the moon and havenu0026#39;t seen any of the MCU-movies, give this a try.”
