I legitimately was excited to see it. Not my fault it turned out to be terrible.

It was forced, pointless, came up at random times and added absolutely nothing to the movie.

In your seemingly unpopular opinion. I didn't see a problem with that aspect of the movie whatsoever and while it didn't necessarily add a whole lot to the movie, I don't think it took away anything either.

I loved the first Iron Man and hated the second (drunk Iron Man, wtf?). Which is the 3rd one most like?


Loved the second cause it was going into Tonys dark place. His personal demons is drinking and was huge in the comics. Looks like Disney wants no part of it though as I read in an article.

People go to war each and every day and it doesn't affect them at the time, but when you attempt to live a normal life after such a life-altering event, it effects you in ways you wouldn't imagine. Ever heard of PTSD? That's likely what Tony was suffering from, despite brushing it off when asked.

It seems like you're trying to find reasons to hate this movie.

Too bad The Avengers didn't portray the invasion as something capable of causing PTSD.

That's fine, doesn't mean it didn't look silly to me to see Iron Man stumbling around at a party.

Again, we only saw them reacting during the course of the invasion. It's called POST traumatic stress disorder for a reason. The effects of the disorder happen well after the events that occurred leading up to it. You don't think fighting off hundreds of monsters, flying through a giant wormhole in the sky with the intention to sacrifice your life to save humanity and ultimately nearly dying is something worst stressing over once it's all said and done? It doesn't matter how the movie portrayed it, it can still happen.

Honestly, no. He didn't seem that shocked by it after he fell back down. He was just like "let's go eat."

If any of the characters would have some sort of psychological issues it would obviously be Capt America. Everyone he knew is dead and everything in the world is completely different.

But instead, Tony Stark has his issues forced in at times for no reason, like

I thought IM3 was good, but I'm still waiting for an IM movie to blow me away like X-Men 2 and Spiderman 2 did, they along with The Avengers are the pinnacle of comic book movies. The action sequences in this one just aren't that good, they're rather boring actually. The end scene was ok, but I compare it to the lame end fight of the first one more than the second (which was awesome).

I absolutely fucking HATED what they did with The Mandarin.

I think it does matter how it was portrayed. The avengers took the scenario extremely lighthearted and then for ironman 3 to take it seriously, it doesn't mesh well.

Agree to disagree, I guess. How you react when something is happening doesn't always coincide with how you react when you've had time to reflect upon it. Sometimes people make brash decisions in the heat of the moment.

I thought it was decent.

I buy the whole anxiety thing, although the movie could have lived without it. Seriously, if they didn't include that stuff at it it would still be the same film. Seems like it was more of an attempt to be "look, he's affected by the stuff that happened in The Avengers, it's all connected!"

I don't think Hollywood understands this yet but people going to see superhero movies want to see *gasp* superheroes. We don't want to be reminded about real life ailments or things that pull us back down to earth. We're there to escape reality, same as videogames and the anxiety thing was an unnecessary, stupid concept.

And if it really needed to be there, then it could have been way more subtle. Pretty sure when people have anxiety attacks, they don't start commentating what's happening to them. FFS who wrote that shitty script; I want to shoot them lol.

On paper I don't mind the idea, I just have a problem with consistency between movies.

I'm pretty sure people complain when superheroes aren't down to earth enough or relatable.

I wouldn't go that far.

Comics have their deep themes and moral issues and what else just as well as any other medium and aren't all just "OMG SUPERHEROS!"

The anxiety was unnecessary because it wasn't well realized/written. Like I said, it would be the same film if all three of those scenes were cut out and they should have been cut for that reason, not because the audience (supposedly?) doesn't want to deal it.

Watched iron man 3, a typical Shane black film. Needless to say it was entertaining. I'd give it an 8.5, though I agree the anxiety scenes if taken out wouldn't affect the film much at all.

They were deleted scenes material. Also the mandarin twist, while insulting to his fans did get a chuckle out of me.

Just re-watched Avengers before seeing IM3 tomorrow. The summation that Stark has panic attacks after "being fine" with what he dealt with in Avengers is laughable. The aliens and otherworld danger appears in the last 20 mins of the movie, meaning the last thing he deals with, and obviously at the moment he's going to react. It's perfectly normal to ponder the change in threats to his world after the fact.

As he says in Avengers as it's all happening, "seeing, still working on believing."

I don't know whether to love or hate Looper. The film is brilliant in a 12 Monkeys/Memento sort of way, but up until the final 30 minutes when you're finally clued in on what's going on there's not a whole lot of substance. The payoff is so good I just wish the movie didn't hang for so long halfway through. It's hard to explain without spoiling anything so I'll just say that even after most everything is revealed or you figure things out for yourself, the connection still can't be made until the end.

And personally I can't figure out if the movie was just too smart for me or if the plot was really just that weak the whole time.

^ I loved Looper. One of my favorites.

A couple movies I've seen lately...Beautiful Creatures. Saw it a couple months ago I think and just thought to mention it. I like it.

Also The Hole on Netflix. It's still not fantastic or anything but it was better than I thought it'd be. Mostly I think it's just because Haley Bennett is in it. Pretty sure I'm just a sucker for kinda maybe sort of bad movies with ridiculously attractive women.

But thats Marvels thing. DC has the godlike heroes we aspire to be, Marvel has the ones that share our faults and make them more relatable. I personally prefer DC, but this is usually one of the reasons given as to why people love Marvel.

I loved looper personally. I remember in the theater I was at some people left when Bruce Willis does a certain tabooish thing. That sealed the deal for them disliking the film I think.

Also in iron man 3 when Tony is investigating the crime scene did anyone else wish that batman did more detective like stuff in the Nolan films? He killed the detective aspect of him for me.

Edit** Also watched Parker. Lackluster even for Jason Statham standards. Though I guess it didn't hurt the eyes to see Jennifer Lopez on screen again, that woman does look good for her age.

Actually I was more referring to the fact that the third Batman movie also has some of the same issues that made it unenjoyable for me. I just want to see my favorite superheroes having fun, using their gadgets, and doing their thing. And let us not forget how garbage Spiderman 3 was with the whole emo thing. I guess the third superhero film in a trilogy is doomed to be bad. : \
