welcome to the edge

Iron has a silent letter. Yes, it is ”Ion Man”

Here an amazing use of discourse markers and speech connectors. In this interview Robert Downy Jr uses his skills not only by showing an astonishing quality of fluency but also by giving an outstanding performance dodging provocative questions. Also…what a t-shirt…!!!

I recommend playing the video at X0.9 speed and listening to it while reading the script below.

Enjoy it and don’t forget to comment sharing your opinion about Marvel movies, do you agree with Scorsese?

Your Ironman portrayal has become ‘’the thing’’ it is a huge money maker…you still enjoy doing it, yes?

I’ll tell you the truth, I din’t expect it to become what it became and it is this very large multi-headed hydra at this point and I also, I’ve always had other interests and according to Scorsese is not cinema, I gotta take a look at that ,you know?

Well, why did he say that?

Because it’s his opinion and he is..

But it is cinema, isn’t it?

I mean it plays in theatres…

Yeah what did he mean by that that it isn’t cinema?

I appreciate his opinion because I think  it’s like, it’s like anything, we need all of the different perspectives so we can come to centre and move on… you know this you…..therapy…you’re therapised …

No, come on you are being too …too

Magnanimous it’s called…

No really, were you insulted when he said that it’s not cinema, that somehow ironman isn’t cinema? It is cinema to me

Well, I mean, look,it’d be like saying Howard Stern isn’t radio, it is..it is…it makes no sense to say it

What was he trying to…was he jealous of the success?

of course not, but I mean he is Martin Scorzese, he makes….

But what does he mean by it?

I think he..in his view…and by the way there’s a lot to be said for how this genre movies ,and I was happy to be part of the problem if there is one, you know, were denigrated the …the era, the art form…cinema. And, by the way when you come in like a stumping beast and you eliminate the competition in such a demonstrative way, you know, it’s phenomenal.

It is phenomenal and maybe he is upset about the…you know what it is? You get older, you’re used to cinema being in a certain way…

Can I tell you something?


Do you actually think Martin Scorsese is upset about marvel movies?

yes, yes I do, because he is the guy who is busy archiving films and he..

He’s archived my dance films and by the way, I appreciate his point of view, Robin what you think?

Well, he is commenting on it,

yeah, and why not?

I don’t know it’s kind of a knock …the fact is …were you ever nominated for academy award for ironman?


don’t you think that’s a …be serious, because it’s a super hero movie they turn your no….the performance is excellent, it’s a totally believable character…

I’m so glad you brought this up because there was some talk about it and I said..let’s , let’s not… and because I’m much more like you than you might really want to …to believe, I listen to the show I agree with most all of your opinions very though they may be, occasionally you go on some …on some, you know, tributary trail of thought and I go oh that’s not how I see it but I go, but I love that you see it that way.
