Movie Monday: Iron Man 3


Before I start, I'm going to tell you that there aren't any spoilers in this, because I know that it's not out in the US until this weekend. So you can read this without things getting ruined, providing you've seen the trailer. Which, if you haven't, WTF DUDE???

I saw it on Saturday, and it's absolutely brilliant.

Reasons why you should see Iron Man 3:
1. Robert Downey Junior. Dude is AMAZING.
2. The script. Sure, it's not the Joss Whedon penned masterpiece that The Avengers was. But it's still pretty fantastic.
3. Gwyneth Paltrow. Pepper Potts hasn't been the most interesting character in the past as far as I'm concerned, but they've pretty much turned her into a total BAMF in this.

4. Making Tony Stark a more human character in the aftermath of The Avengers.
5. The end credits scene. Perfection.
6. Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin. He. Is. Phenomenal.
7. House Party Protocol.
8. Guy Pearce. Yes, his character is a little one dimensional, but he did a pretty great job with what he had.
9. "I got you." "I got you first."

10. Improvising.
11. Ty Simpkins. The kid is adorable.
12. An unexpected Downton Abbey cameo.
13. Skydiving rescues.
14. Don Cheadle. He's great.

15. Explosions.
16. Sassy Tony Stark.
17. Stan Lee's obligatory cameo.
18. One hell of a fan boy.
19. This happened at the German premiere:
Yes, that's RDJ in lederhosen. Also, source.
20. Dancing Tony Stark.
21. Trips to Pakistan.

So. Go and see it, then let me know what you thought!!

  4. I loved it! Best Iron Man yet, a good back-to-basics plot and a proper dealing with events that so few series actually managed successfully. Also Ben Kingsley was immense!

  5. Okay, okay, could Robert Downey Jr BE more amazing? He is SUCH a king. He rules all! (Seriously, though, he's like the hottest actor working right now, and has been for quite some time. RDJ for president!!) xo

  6. Weeping. Still weeping days later. MUST. SEE. AGAIN.

    And you know how I feel about Joss, so I vote better than Avengers. But then I've seen Avengers approximately eleventy-twelve times, and IM3 only once, so that may just be battle fatigue.

    OH MY GOD RHODEY. AND PEPPER. AND EVERYTHING. AND HAPPY. AND THE DOWNTON THING. AND ALL THE THINGS. AND BEN KINGSLEY YOU WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL MAN AND OKAY I'MMA GO NOW BECAUSE I'M FILLING YOUR BLOG WITH ALL CAPS AND THAT'S NOT EXACTLY OKAY SHUTTING UP NOW BYE

  7. I LOVED IT SO MUCH, KIRSTI.

    I was so so much better than the second movie and maybe even better than the first, though they are two dissimilar beasts, so IDK, but basically, IT WAS AWESOME.

    I was going to say why but it's basically your list all over again so basically:

    YES. A+. 1430. YOU GO GIRL.

    Etc.
