Saw it again this weekend.  Enjoyed it even more the second time around, even though the theater was a terrible experience. This was the most disgustingly misconverged digital projection I've ever seen in a professional cinema.  At least Cinemark gave me a refund.  So if I was able to enjoy it at all in that enviroment, that says alot for me.  I would have left, but I brought my parents with me and I didn't want to drag my Mom out of the theater since she said she couldn't see the problem.

 

Anyway, I'm not sure it's likely that there is much more to Trevor.  Maybe, but nothing really jumped out at me on the second viewing that I didn't catch on the first viewing.

 

I didn't notice the cool chinese dragon tatoos on Killian/Mandarin the first time around.  But I caught them on this viewing.  Killian had said something along the lines of  a "mandarian" being an "advisor to the King" or something like that, and one of the definitions of mandarin is "a person of position and influence".  Killian's plan was to own the war on terror with the (Vice)President as his puppet in one hand and controling a terror organization with the other.  So again, for those that that might be confused thinking that there was no real Mandarin (hat he was just an actor), there certainly was.  The public face was a misdirection, but Killian was "The Mandarin".  And he was a pretty significant foil for Stark.

 

In Ton'y voice over at the end, he said that after he got Pepper "sorted out" he thought "why stop there?" and went on to deal with his shrapnel problem.  What do you think the "sorted out" means for Pepper?  Do you think he managed to completely remove Extremis from Pepper, or did he figure out how to stablize it?  Is Pepper going to continue to have superpowers in future films?  I did read somewhere that someone in Marvel, Feige maybe, said this may not be the last we see of Extremis.

Is Iron Man3 better than Iron Man2? Yes but that's not saying much. And not by much.

 

Both possess half baked and overstuffed plots and the drive to turn the Iron Man suits into a toyline continues unabated.  Really dislike the change on the fly suit stuff too.  Didn't buy the PTSD storyline either.

 

Movie's strong point is how much Downey is in the flick.  And the interaction between Pepper and Stark. Mandarin turned out to be a Bane-bust and apparently the driving motivation to become a ubervillain requires nothing more traumatic than to be left out on a cold rooftop.   :rolleyes:

 

At the end Tony Stark declares he is Ironman.  Too bad that declaration came at the end of a movie that just demonstrated that any videogamer with decent skills would make a better one.

Just in case there is any doubt about Marvel's intentions regarding Tony Stark continuing to function as Iron Man, Joss Whedon says:

“Well, I feel like in Iron Man 3, even though he said, ‘I’ve changed' -- he blew up his remote suits, but I don’t think anybody thinks he doesn’t have one anymore. The question is, if The Avengers are called, does he show up? And the answer is, ‘Yes!’”

Took in a third viewing this weekend, and I have to say this has been the most fun and entertaining movie for me this summer so far.

I saw Man of Steel this weekend as well and enjoyed it, but as cool as the spectacle was and as moving as lots of the stuff was with Clark and the Kents it wasn't as fun a viewing experience as Iron Man 3.

The new Marvel One Shot that will be on the BD of Thor: The Dark World will be called 'All Hail the King' and will focus on Trevor Slattery.

'All Hail the King' is a great follow-up if you enjoyed the Trevor character. This was quite the nice short, and it has a fantastic cameo that gave me a nice belly laugh. Good stuff.

Plus, this kind of clarified something that can definitely be followed up on in future Iron Man films.

Check it out.

Robert Downey Jr. would sign on for Iron Man 4... if Mel Gibson directed it.

It's about time the Hollywood top dogs let go of their grudge against Mel Gibson, whatever you think of the man you cannot deny he is a good director, also a pretty decent actor, it's good to see Downey Jr. sticking up for his old mate.

I don't think Downey was 100% serious. I'm sure he'd like to see Gibson direct, but if the studio comes back with a generous offer, I bet Downey will sign on.
