I liked it, but it wasn't great. I only paid the cheap $5.50 afternoon price, so I feel I got my monies worth. The whole Mandarin not being the real villain is something you can see about three miles away, so when Tony grabs the guy, it's not like it's any great revelation. Guy Peirce's character was about as boring as a villain as I've ever seen, so I couldn't really get into it. The battle at the end was well done, but could have been shorter. The biggest problem I had with the movie, was random evil guy number two flying around in the Patriot suit. The suits are supposedly keyed to specific people, so if you want to get all knitpicky about, that shouldn't have been possible. Since that led to a major plot point, it bothered me more than a little.

Of all of the Iron Man movies, this is the weakest, but it's still a decent enough action movie if you can turn your brain off long enough to watch it. There was a fair amount of humor and some good action scenes. My favorite part was actually the after credits scene with Bannor. Which if you've seen the movie, pretty much tells you how much I liked or didn't like it.

I liked it more then 2. I saw it in IMAX 3D, so it was pretty awesome eye candy.

I'm not sure where you're reading your reviews, or maybe I just didn't notice which events are ignored, but the main subplot for IM3 was Tony dealing with the PTSD he developed in New York after those events, and it was in no way subtle about it.

I can give no specifics on what might have been ignored because the reviews I read didn't give any either. All of them were on IMDb I think. Since that "flaw" was mentioned in 5 or 6 out of the maybe 12-15 I read I thought it might have some truth to it. But even better if it was just BS. Smiley: wink

oh it was BS. The PTSD he has is basically the reason for the army of suits that Jarvus (sp) controls. There is even a flash back iirc.

I'm not a particular fan, but for completions sake, and maybe he does have a fan or two, but here's the poster for The Wolverine.

What I've gathered is, basically, Wolverine goes to Japan and loses his healing factor. Then fights ninjas. Like I said, I've never really been a fan of Logan so I'll probably skip this beyond a torrent or, even more likely, watch it on FX when it plays twenty times a day.

Finally saw it last night; wasn't a bad movie. Liked it better than the second, but I thought the first and the Avengers were better. Highlights for me were the Downton Abbey references and Tony's dialogue with the kid.

The scene after the credits was pretty funny too.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to that one myself, a lot more than I did IM3. It could be good, Japan always made for a decent setting for the Wolverine, a couple of good stories there.

IM3 was pretty good imo, quite enjoyable and nicely connected with the Avengers movie.

Apparently Robert Downey Jr is a pretty stand up fella. Also mentions of Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy, which weren't much of a surprise, but hints towards "Iron Fist," "Dr. Strange," and "Black Panther," all characters I'm interested in in some way. Iron Fist would make a great old school kung fu exploitation type film, especially if they stop frame and scroll the names of some of the over the top moves across the screen, Dr Strange would be a good contrast against all the technology the other Marvel movies are about and could introduce more of the magic based characters at a later date, and Black Panther could be Nolan Batman-esque if done right.

Over all, I'm just kind of impressed RDJ went to bat for his fellow thespians like this.

So I was really hoping the local drive-in would have the IM3 + ST double feature this weekend, but unfortunately it looks like they're showing them on separate screens at the same time :(. Looks like IM3 will have to keep waiting, I might get to see it next weekend but this weekend will be ST for sure. >_<

If you want to come to SW Ohio, they're running IM3 & ST:ID here through the weekend starting Wednesday Night/Midnight.

This was definitely the best IM film, imo.

I also enjoyed the midend credit scene. Smiley: grin

Also the Generalisimo's cameo was lulzy, though not as good as the one in The Amazing Spider-Man

I don't know how to feel about this. It sounds both terrible and potentially good at the same time.

I keep seeing the trailers on TV, and all the backgrounds look inorganic for some reason. I mean, I know these movies heavily use green screens and such, but usually they look at least a little real. Especially the scene they keep showing of Wolverine in that snowy village being surrounded by ninjas looks more like a cheap high school stage than a big budget movie scene.

Saw Iron Man 3 and ST:ID together. I never read Marvel, so I come to those movies with a clean palate. Iron Man is one of my most favourite action movies ever, and I was disappointed with IM 2. I was very pleased that IM 3 was better than 2, and even more pleased with Pepperpot's part in the ending. All up, explosiony/actiony goodness, without achieving greatness. I certainly didn't feel I had wasted my cinema entry money.

Of the two, I liked Star Trek Into Darkness better. I didn't watch the 1960's originals, so again nothing precious to me is desecrated. I know just enough about the originals to like the glaring references, and the extra glaring "twists" on the originals, such as Spock having a girl-friend. I REALLY liked Benedict Cumberbatch on the big screen in this. What a mobile, expressive face!

Back to marvel: The line up is so male heavy, that I'd love it if they gender-bended one of the heroes, and made him a woman. The Marvel Comic fans could have a complete conniption that is so controversial it works as a free virus marketing ploy. The newbies like me wouldn't even notice, unless we had watched the first Avenger's movie: "Hey, wasn't that woman a dude before?".

Marvel actually has a lot of female leads. But bringing them in is problematic. For one, a LOT of the strongest female leads are all mutants (which includes both X-Men and members of the Avengers). And Disney doesn't have the rights to X-Men. So no Jean Grey, Kitty Pryde, etc. I think, technically, they have access to any of the mutants that were members of the Avengers and have not had significant plot connections to the X-Men franchise. Right now, it's looking like Disney could claim Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (Magneto's children), but I haven't seen much buzz about anyone else.

But they might not rush into that, as they'd need to give them a new origin story. Which would be awkward, if they could get Fox to relinquish X-Men rights... Plus, their Origin (children of a big bad for the X-Men) is kind of important.

Best case scenario, we get another X-Men reboot under Disney, allowing them to further expand the cinematic universe. Even better, Sony relinquishes Spider-Man and they can include him, too.

And then they can rip all of our hearts out with the Civil War.
