    Also in Blade 3 Ryan Reynolds calls someone a cock-juggling thundercunt.

    Its pretty funny if you listen to the commentary track for the movie Ryan Reynolds talks about how much he HATES his introduction line in the movie when he crashes through the two-way glass. Its pretty funny. Shit, somehow the Iron Man movie thread turned into Blade 3.....oops. Umm....IRON MAN MADE $201 MILLION WORLDWIDE!!

    I still wonder if the whole Hillary Swank Iron Man scence was ever actually shot

    Favreau said that he put out a false rumor about Swank being in the movie to throw off people chasing down spoilers.

    Plus Entourage was a horrid show.

    It still airs and it is fantastic.

    Someone forced the first two season sets upon me and I didn't make it through the first one. I don't have HBO on my cable package so I just assumed that surely that show couldn't have lasted longer than two seasons. Apparently I was wrong. So, do you guys think Iron Man can hold off Speed Racer and take #1 two weeks in a row? I've seen all the Speed Racer trailers and still don't really have an opinion on it.

    Speed Racer hasn't had much of a marketing blitz like Iron Man, so it will probably take second

    But I will totally see it

    It doesn't interest me. These things tend to fall into three categories for me; see at the movies, maybe see it on DVD rental/at a friend's place/if I get free tickets, don't bother.

    Speed Racer is firmly in the middle category, and I'm quite a voracious attendee of the local cinema.

    Oh man have you seen it?

    Is it as good as it looks? How many ninja fights are there? How many asses does Racer X kick? Is there lots of surf music? And what about the midair car punches?

    I need to know

    Is it wrong of me to hope they skip the regular ant man and jump straight into Irredemable Ant Man with Simon Pegg as him (forget the characters name). Would be totally awesome with all these big super hero movies comming out to have a guy steal the ant man suit from Pym and use it to spy on chicks in the shower.

    So, I think this is definitely way above Spider-Man 1, 2 and X-Men. Probably equal to Batman Begins as "best superhero movie," though they are both very different flavors that are delicious for different tastes.

  • McClyMcCly Registered User regular
    edited May 2008
    I think that it was better than Begins because it didn't have anything dragging it down (choppy fight scenes, Katie Holmes). Dark Knight will probably blow it out of the water, though. So far, I think it's best comic book movie.

    I thought the characters were all great in Begins. Everyone from Lucius to Alfred to Falcone all had compelling personalities or stories behind them. The only character of that caliber was Tony Stark, everyone else felt kind of plain. Pepper maybe, but she didn't seem to get very many opportunities to express it. It was great in the way the best blockbuster action movies are great.

    This is why I firmly do not believe in comparing these two movies. It's like comparing Die Hard to... man... the Untouchables. You can enjoy both movies a lot, but they're really quite different.

    You can tell by the very fact that he said "it is amazing". I mean, how could he be talking about Speed Racer at that point?

    so you are pretty much saying the dark knight trailers are better than the entire movie of Iron Man?

    or am i reading it wrong, and you think iron man is the best comic book movie so far?

    "So far, I think it's best comic book movie." was for Iron Man. (sorry, 3 am, tired, etc.)

    That was pretty fantastic. I'm glad they didn't succumb to the urge to put that in the trailer, because that was perfect trailer material but then I wouldn't have gotten to crack up over it at the movies :)

    I really enjoyed this. I agree with the previous statement that the best thing about it was that you weren't just sitting there waiting for the action... The Stark bits were just as entertaining.

    If any of those things happen in Iron Man 2, it will be a guaranteed success.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Bringing in Hawkeye or Black Widow would be cool but Thor coming to help Iron Man?

    I think it would take a lot of the wind out of Iron Man's sails to have Thor show up and absolutely wreak shit. I mean, if you are true to Thor he's going to pound the bejesus out of whatever challenged Tony.

    Who cares? Comic readers have been getting the shaft on cool movies portraying their favorite characters for years.

    I'm pretty sure the everyone involved cares about possibly alienating the majority of the non-comics fans who loved the first movie and contributed to its 100 million dollar + opening weekend

    Fin Fang Foom isn't actually the Midgard Serpent: rather, the Midgard Serpet once pretended to be Fin Fang Foom.

    The Midgard Serpent, like all of the Norse creatures, are literal magical beings (although often different from how our classical fictional mythology portrayed them). Fin Fang Foom, on the other hand, is a straightforward alien born of science (the same way Mandarin's rings are just the engine rings of a ship belonging to one of Foom's peers).

    Now, as a separate matter: seriously, does anyone actually think people wouldn't "buy" Fin Fang Foom? You want a good way to buy it? Stick straight to the comics. It's an alien. You alter the story a little bit - Mandarin has been intentionally keeping Foom in stasis while he coopted the power of the rings, etc. - but you don't acknowledge the absurdity. After all, is Fin Fang Foom any more odd than the CLOVERFIELD monster?
