Iron Man 3 Trailer


DeathscytheX

The newest director promised a more action packed approach. He looks like he is sticking to his word.

I thought it was better than the second one.  Much less emo, though it was a little slower paced in parts.  Still, lots of action, appropriate bits of comedy, and the final fight was awesome!  Plus, Ben Kingsley made a great villian.

Good! I'm glad it was better than Iron Man 2. The second movie had way too much back and forth bickering between Stark and Pepper.

Finally got around to watching this. I thought it was a good movie, better than the second one. It threw me off a bit with how much the movie focused more on Tony Stark as opposed to him flying around destroying things. But I liked it because it distinguished that he is the person capable of doing the things he does as opposed to just being a guy in a suit of armor with an ego.

 

In the end he destroys all his armors and decides to make a clean slate. It almost seems like hes done with the superhero business altogether, especially considering he even gets rid of his signature chest piece. But in the last scene he refers to himself as Iron Man. Regardless of his tech, he himself is Iron Man. I like that. But obviously he'll have to make some new armor for Avengers 2.

I read up on some of the Iron Man story and it seems that the Mandarin is actually a strong villain for Iron Man, but in this movie he was a made up character portrayed as the face of evil. Hardcore fans of the comics probably got annoyed by that one. With Marvel in control of the franchise, I'm surprised the crapped out on an evil character like that.

I thought it was a pretty good movie.

 

The last fight with all 47 armors was pretty sweet.

 

I also thought it was strange that he destroyed the armor. the fact that he destroyed all the armor for pepper and didn't rebuild his house leads me to believe that he's done with the super hero business (and how long can they keep the iron man series going before it gets stale?) 

 

I had a thought that maybe they will replace iron man with a new avenger. The comic books had many, many different avengers, but he is a loved character so it's hard to say.

As far as I know, he is signed up to be Iron Man for another 2 avengers movies. I think he'll be Iron Man again, because if not he'll be the equivalent of hawk eye without a bow or he'll be like Fury and sit on the sidelines issuing orders. Nobody wants to see that. When he destroyed all the armor he called it a clean slate initiative or something like that. My guess is he'll stop being so flamboyant with his persona. Instead of rebuilding a massive bachelor pad, he'll set himself up with a highly fortified mansion with an underground facility. *coughbrucewaynecough* :P

He'll definitely have to make some new armor. Even though this last movie showed him more as a hero without the armor, he'll need the armor or he'll be like batman without an outfit.

 

That last battle with the armor swapping was pretty awesome, but all the individual armors seemed pretty weak by themselves. Perhaps all the varieties he was making were tests to eventually create one super armor.

I think Iron-Man without the armor could set up for a very interesting Marvel Civil War. The way the next Captain America is setting up would be able to have Nick Fury going into hiding. Being replaced by Tony Stark. And thus also leading to The Super Human Registration Act.

 

Some differences this time around though could be

  • Scrapping the registration of Villains (No Thunderbolts, etc)
  • How this could effect Tony Stark's relationship with a now Super Powered Pepper Pots.
  • Contrast to Captain America actually fighting for what he believes in where Tony Stark would send someone else to fight for what he believes in.
  • Hopefully a better ending than the actual Marvel Civil War.

 

A hypothetical plot twist could see the death of James Rhodes as War Machine. With no other Iron Man Armor left that could leave Tony Stark no other option but to fight again as The Iron Patriot. It also makes for an easy replacement of Norman Osborn & Dark Reign since Tony Stark has a similar past when dealing with weapons. Plus both stories dealt with political power that became corrupt.

Hmm, you have some interesting ideas there, but I doubt they'd do the civil war things so early, they'll prob wait too get a couple more avenger movies first if anything. Very interesting though, I'd like to see a civil war, but I've always wanted to see a civil war in the X-men universe lol one of my favorite episodes is when master mold send those two mutants back in time to kill professor X and changes history. Then when Bishop goes back, it's all out war between humans and mutants and Magneto is the general/leader lol

I don't know, I though it was a bit of a reach in terms of why people did what they did, like villains' motivations and overall, it was a decent film. I would've expected 'decent' to be a 'good' or 'amazing' film seeing that they had the budget for it. Overall, disappointing I guess?

      Although its also on the PS4, I purchased Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for the Switch recently because it's just been collecting dust. It was probably the better option anyways because the graphics look like something out of the N64/PS2 era with modern draw rates. Not a knock against it, as its quite charming... but the game looks like it belongs on the Switch rather than PS4. Everything about this game is so 1998. I've never played any of the Ys games before, but this one caught my eye for the old school hack and slash. It's very Dark Cloud-ish minus the world building. Sprinkle some old Zelda in there as well. The combat is relatively simple with 1 button main attack, and 4 special attacks that consist of holding R1 and pressing A B Y X. These use a SP meter that replenishes on kills. There are also dodge and block counters that give you a special speed combo ability. You have a party of 3, and characters that join where you can swap them out and swap between the three in combat. Each character has a assigned damage type (Slash, Precise, Bash). Having all 3 types helps weaken the right enemies susceptible to these plus you get a rare drop bonus... rather than the 1.1x bonus for having two of the same. Anyways, the story is campy but interesting, the dialogue is 90's cringeworthy, and its a lazy sprinkle of actual voice acting and text reading. The world is  large but a bunch of sectioned off instances that quickly load without a loading screen as you cross them. There are fast travel points but not in every sector, so it requires some old school memorizing where to go at times. As you get special gear, you'll find places that were inaccessible previously open up. I'm 20 hours in and I don't feel like I'm even half way through. So at $60, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for a decent nostalgia kick. I bet this will be a free PS Plus game next year so when it comes up I highly recommend it without even finish it. I'll report back when I beat it with a proper review.

      Its been quite the stressful couple weeks. Lady had her surgery and is having a very slow recovery process. My bank required specific repairs to the garage to approve the mortgage and instead of paying a massive price to a contractor me and my friend spent 2 days this last weekend busting our asses in 90 degree days with 90% humidity and full sun working on the garage. Thats all done and accepted now.. Yay. Getting into the final stretch here with the house. Hopefully I'll be moving by the end of the month. I might actually have free time this weekend... finally. *knocks on wood*

      The first two eps of AoT season 3 are better than season 2 in its entirety.

      Originally I wasn't going to say anything until I actually finished watching the series (which should be Monday or Tuesday night) but you were right DX, The Ancient Magus' bride is spectacular and I say this after only watching 15 episodes.
      I have to say it's up there with Violet Evergarden for both visuals and story (and it's been awhile since I've seen a show that has completely drawn me in to the point that I sacrifice sleep just to watch another episode). I honestly didn't think the premise would suck me in this much but I'm glad it did (and both episodes with Nevin were extremely well done (I shed some manly tears they were so emotionally impacting)).
      I honestly have to say this is probably going down as one of my favorites shows from the last few years (which isn't really hard considering my problems with the last few seasons), only taking second to the masterpiece that was Violet Evergarden. I can't recommend this show enough for those who want a story driven show focused on character development and world building (I'm just sad I only have 8 episodes and 3 OVA's left, really hope this gets another season once the manga gets further along).

      This simuldub season is pretty meh compared to last. If it wasn't for the fact that MHA and out of all things; Black Clover was still running. I'd be hard pressed to keep up. Ep 1 of Overlord season 3 felt like a waste of time, but the second one made things pretty interesting. Angels of Death seems kind of bland so far. How not to Summon a Demon Lord is a typical fanservice trapped in a video game world show. Same goes for The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. Lord of Vermilion feels like a better Tokyo Majin.. which isn't saying much. Hopefully it will be something better. Harukana Receive is bouncy bikini beach volley ball, but Haruka is a total best girl, so I'll shamelessly enjoy it. On the opposite end, I'll skip Free! because I'm not watching a bunch of dudes swim, and I'm already watching HR and Hanebado... an anime about freakin Badminton. With Dies Irae and AoT not staring until later in the month that leaves three unlikely contenders for a surprise best in season for me, that isn't Overlord or AoT which I already expect to be solid at worst.
      Magical Girl Raising Project is apparently a dark ass violent series with cute moe magic girls. A total clash of genres. The first two eps only have brief hints at it so far, its mostly just cutesy. But if it turns out like I think it has the potential too. It should be pretty interesting.
      Chio's School Road is a "school" anime thats about Chio's walk to school every day, instead of the actual school day. The absolute absurd happens apparently every time. The first three eps have been pretty hysterical so far. Its different, so I like it.
      Island is a pretty big mystery to me as to what its suppose to be about. It has my interest to see how it unfolds. It can honestly go either way. I guess I'll be reviewing these at the end of the season and we'll see how my opinions have changed since this status update.
