Iron Man 2 was not bad

Iron Man 2 was not bad though I think I liked the first one more. I'm not gonna lie though I'm kinda at the point now were I'm more or less indifferent to all these comic book movies. Don't get me wrong I like the comic book flick's like Iron Man and Batman but it's at the point now were I feel like I'm just watching the same thing over and over again. Only thing for me that really distinguishes them apart now seems to be the the level of acting, in this case the excellent performances from Downey Jr. and Mickey Rourke.

I like these movies and will probably continue to see them as they come out but at the same time I'm at the point now were I just dont get excited anymore over movies like this. Like a lot of people it's partially one of the reasons I turned heavily to anime and manga which offer a lot more variety.

Just my 2 cents.

Try Iron Guy

Yea, i dont think Iron man can hold a candle to this great piece of art.

Iron Guy:

Its done by a friend of mine for his sketch comedy show Doomstink on NCSU Wolf TV.

Sorry that cheap special affects and a parents basement doesn't tickle your fancy.

Saw it yesterday. "IM2" is

Saw it yesterday. "IM2" is the second sequel I've seen in theaters... The first was "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", and I think I've been scarred by it. Granted, IM2 was nowhere near as bad as RotF, but I didn't feel it was quite as good as the first IM.

One thing I really wanted to see was Iron Man at work. What were some of those heroic deeds that made him what he is by the time Whiplash comes around? We hear about 'heroic deeds' and how he 'successfully privatized world peace', but... what and how exactly did he do that???

Something kinda bugs me, which hasn't really happened before in any film that I've seen. I don't know how often this happens in American cinema, but IM2 seems to be corrupted by crossovers. And by that, I mean this: these movies are and should be strictly about Iron Man. Wanna bring in War Machine, fine. But, why make a film about one superhero, and then hint that there are others out these? While it was cool in the first movie to have Nick Fury hint at the Avengers, that was at the end and was barely 30 seconds. Okay, fine- we won't hear about it for a while.
But my problem is that, even though Stark helped found the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. in the comic books, why should he then do so in the movies? I thought casually throwing in Captain America's shield was very funny, but then at the end of IM2, they don't just poke fun at another Marvel franchise, but say that he isn't unique in this movie-verse, and to me that completely takes away from the charm of the movie franchise of Iron Man. C'mon- leave the separate movie characters in their own franchises! You wanna poke fun at the Cap or Thor, that's fine, but don't tie the mainline movies to each other! Are we gonna see Hulkbusters in the Thor movie, or the Cap's, or have some visitors from "Fantastic Four"? Know what- are we gonna see the X-Men in "Iron Man 3"?

I know an "Avengers" movie is in the works, and that it will have several characters from separate movie-verses crossover, and that's fine. IMO, the Avengers movie should have all the crossover it likes, because that's what it is about.

And, you're absolutely right, Andrew- they should have had guys inside those Hammer suits.

It's fan service, man. It

It's fan service, man. It creates a world bigger than the confines of the single 2-hour story. I like the tie-ins, leading up to an Avengers movie. And Thor's hammer at the end? Love it.

Ney sir, Showcasing elements in movies like omens or signs foretelling upcoming stories are teasers. Fan service & foreshadows are 2 different things.
