I know there's already an Avengers thread, but there's a lot of Marvel movies coming out, so we might as well talk about them here... Here's the first Iron Man 3 trailer if you haven't seen it already.
i have no idea what the plot is! and i wish they put a bit of humour that
made us fall for robert downey jr
I saw Iron Man 3 yesterday and thought it was okay. There were some things I really liked, and some I really didn't like.
What I liked
-I enjoyed the action sequences.
-I liked how there was more Rhodes. I think Don Cheadle is a pretty cool actor and I'm glad he got some more screen time.
-I thought the way Iron Man used multiple suits throughout the final fight with The Mandarin was really cool.
-I was really diggin' Happy's Vincent Vega haircut at the beginning.
-And of course, the charm Robert Downey Jr. brings to his portrayal of Tony Stark was there, and that was great.
What I didn't like
-I didn't like Guy Pearce's character, Aldrich Killian. It hit me pretty early on in the movie that he was essentially Jim Carrey's Riddler from Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever, with the whole long, scraggly haired genius who wants to impress the handsome billionaire but ultimately is rejected causing him to revamp who he is by becoming a villain, and trying to make the hero chose between "the girl", and "the other dude". I thought Guy Pearce's acting was good, but the character was "meh", at best.
-I didn't like how little Tony Stark wasn't in his Iron Man suits. Allot of people have this gripe with Batman in the Nolan trilogy, but personally, I think that character can get away with it, especially when considering the world the Christopher and Jonathan Nolan, and David Goyer built for those films.
-I couldn't understand why Tony Stark destroyed all his suits. I understand if he is a tormented from what happened in The Avengers, but the way they did it, it made it seem like Tony did it for Pepper.
-I also couldn't understand why it took Tony Stark 3 movies (4 if you're counting The Avengers), to finally have the surgery to remove the shrapnel from his chest.
With all that being said, I was still entertained. For me, it goes: Iron Man, Iron Man 3, then Iron Man 2.
(Also, I know very little about Iron Man so please, if I had anything wrong, let me know, but without one of these ":D", at the end.)
So they announced the title for the avengers 2
Avengers: Age Of Ultron
What do you all think of this?
Some people think this is because of input of Robert Downey Jr and how Tony Stark will create
Ultron instead of Hank Pym (Ant Man)
For those who don't know Ultron was a A.I created by Pym to guard the negative zone (Supervillain Prison) but Ultron became self aware and tried to kill Pym and the avengers
To be honest, I didn't like the first Avengers film, so I won't be seeing the second one. Although I'll definitely be seeing the Batman/Superman film that comes out. As for Iron Man 3, I enjoyed it quite a lot, although I hadn't seen the first two films, so the ending didn't really have any impact on me.
I saw Man Of Steel and I was disappointed. What could have been a great film was made (in my opinion) awful by long tedious conversations between people that sounded like they were getting bored of themselves!
I'll admit it, I would have enjoyed it if there was less talking and more action (Fuck me, right?)
Anyway, I feel like the only person who doesn't like Man Of Steel and Avengers.
Just saw Captain America: Civil War and I have to say:
OH MY GOD IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!
Ahem, now onto the analysis, I'll tag spoilers where necessary.
This is still a Captain America movie even with most of The Avengers present, he and Bucky are still the main focus and Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan work brilliantly together, especially with Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson.
Tony Stark isn't as antagonised as I expected and you do see his point of view as credible, the war stays civil until the final act when a big reveal:
Bucky killed Howard and Maria Stark
Pushes him over the edge.
Tom Holland is amazing as Spider-Man, acts like a real teenager and isn't filled with the "Quirkiness BS" that made Andrew Garfield unwatchable. Also the new Aunt May is hot... That's all...
Black Panther is a brilliant third party and I cannot wait for his movie now.
Finally, onto Zemo. This is spoiler heavy so I will just tag all of it:
Helmut Zemo is the best Marvel villain in the MCU. He is a Sokovian soldier whose family died in Age of Ultron and he wants to break apart The Avengers. This sounds weak but the revenge plot works so well as he doesn't want money or to rule the world. He just wants to kill The Avengers. Through any means necessary. Daniel Bruhl is both horrible and charming at the same time but the best thing they did was not kill him off. Does this mean they are building up to the Masters of Evil? Hopefully. Maybe next time he will wear the purple mask.
That's my brief review of Captain America: Civil War, my new favourite MCU movie, roll on Doctor Strange!
It was really amazing!
I actually never liked Super Hero movies that much. But lately, I wathced the first few ones of the MCU chronic. And I must say, I really dig them now. looking foreward to watch the missing few ones over the next few weeks and eventually seeing Doctor Strange in the theater as well.
