    the second one seemed to want to set up "these guys are hardcore" while she was assuming "man these guys got supertech like tony does"

    Yeah, it was weird that they only had a tiny door-opening bomb and normal guns, though I suppose they were operating under really short notice.

    it kind of makes more sense to me that they have door bombs than a magical skeleton keycard, though

    Plus considering the lengths Stane was going to, it seemed like the last thing they wanted to do was risk terrorists getting supertech, so they only brought what they needed.

    I meant that there was a bit of a disparity between the hardcore image the writer may have meant to convey (as Geebs suggested) and what the audience actually saw, at least until the post-credits scene. Nobody was really wowed by them getting past the door, or anything else they did.

    Well, to be fair, there wasn't much they were going to be able to do in that situation.

    What an awesome movie. I hope that this proves to all the directors out there that you can stay faithful to the material and not try and reinvent the wheel in some "Well I never read the comics... but I want to treat this movie like... And my take on "Insert hero/ team name here" is that they should be like ..."

    It's fantastic that Marvel is now making its own movies and has that control. If they keep this up with The Incredible Hulk we are in for some real comic move GOLD!!!!!!!!!!

    Well thank you Cinemark Tinseltown for completely fucking up my Ironman experience.

    What's that? You're going to cut off the sound half way through the picture, then let it keep running mute until the entire thing is shut down altogether? What's this? You're going to take twenty goddamn minutes to get it started again, only to have the rest of the feature with the most intense scenes played in mono sound?

    Ugh.

    Most theatres would give you a gift certificate after that, or something.

    They gave me a raincheck, but now that I know everything that's going to happen in the movie, it's just not the same.

    Out of curiosity, what Cinamark did you go to? We had a problem at the one I work at (today was opening night for our theater) where there was a tornado spotted nearby and we had to shut down all the movies for about 5 minutes to explain emergency proceadures and a ton of people got pissed off because hey who the fuck cares if I might die.

    I am seriously considering picking up whatever the Ultimate incarnation of Iron Man is purely because I loved this movie so much, so I guess it did its job.

    No complaints at all. I really liked that he had a drink in his hand at least once every fifteen minutes. The only thing that even made me blink was the Paltrow scene at the end; the one at the beginning was fine, as being flustered and confused in such a situation would be, you know, entirely normal.

    I wouldn't recommend the Ultimate Iron Man miniseries. He's great in Ultimates 1 and 2, though, and he definitely has some good stories in the regular universe.

    Totally awesome movie, the only complaint I have is I think they went a little over the top with the whole "millionaire playboy" thing at the beginning, it was fine and then that stripper pole rising out of the floor of his private plane just nudged it over the hill.

    I hope the Wolverine movie is of this caliber, X3 makes me worry though. But I mean come on, they're putting Deadpool in it so it can't be terrible.

    This was an origin movie. I thought that the whole SHIELD acronym thing, plus the way they opened the door and handled themselves in general, was also an origin of sorts. It felt to me as though SHIELD was just starting to get its feet wet and they were as new to the whole super-spy thing as Stark was to being Iron Man.

    I fully anticipate that if in fact they make another Iron Man film, and if they make an Avengers movie, I bet we'll see SHIELD really grow. Especially if they collaborate with Stark. After all, a lot of their supertech comes from him anyway, right? Isn't the SHIELD helicarrier built by Stark Enterprises?

    Technically: Yes.

    But, technically, as of this time last year they were planning on making one film for almost every character that had ever had their own book. It was the reason Avi Arad left/was leaving Marvel.


    However, most of them (if not all of them) are still listed as in production on IMDB, so who knows.

    I really wish everyone who thinks X3 was terrible could see all the deleted scenes.

    They don't make the movie incredible, but they make it consistent and fix the most major flaws (pacing and plot continuity).

    There were scenes that explained where the brotherhood have been since X2, and what they've been doing. There were more scenes that presented and explained the development and production of the cure. There was a scene or two of beast actually doing sciency-things, and some more of him kicking ass. There were a bunch of scenes of altered dialog or extended battles that just made things flow so much better.

    But the absolute best was the most radically different ending:
    Spoiler:

    A good movie was shot and processed, but it was edited into a broken film.

    Out of curiosity, did you ever see the remake of the Manchurian Candidate a few years ago?

    'Manchurian' became the name of a british-american founded global conglomerate.

    It was stupid. A bad, bad movie. But, it shows that it could be done, and if it was, it'd be a bit more graceful than that.

    But also

    They said the Mandarin wasn't in the movie and that he would be in sequels

    They said this many times.

    The dude you see is probably a lieutenant of some kind.

    My bet is that movie-Mandarin ends up having ten lieutenants, in ten different countries or regions, and that they all wear a ring to signify their role.

    ...wait that's getting a bit too LotR.

    I wonder how they would do the Mandarin anyway without re-jiggering the whole concept. It really feels like it would set a weird tone by bringing in dragon alien tech power rings.

    Easily. It's like Fury says, Tony's entered a universe a lot bigger than himself. A universe of Marvels.

    I saw it and loved it, think it belongs in the upper echelon of comic book movies, along with Batman Begins and the Spiderman franchise. Sequel/Spinoff is coming big time, maybe both.
