>>13830892 >>13830894 OP here. I still need to watch IM3 myself. Yeah I know but I wasn't interested after the relative disappointment that was IM2. I'm thinking about watching it very soon though, maybe even this week since I'm getting caught up on the MCU.
Fuck if the Iron Man and War Machine suits aren't the coolest thing though.
>>13830924 I really think the Iron Man movies and the MCU in general is probably the best depiction of powered armor in fiction so far. They're so cool-looking and they're really badass, being realistic enough so that they seem logical enough to a point, and also so that they carry a lot of weight in battle and such, but also just crazy enough to be like something out of an anime.
The first Iron Man is great and by far the best MCU movie, 2 and 3 were okay. The designs look pretty nice as far as Hollywood goes, they're sleek and "realistic" without being Bayformer-esque overdesigned monstrosities.
>>13830894 I can see what they were trying to do with the Mandarin, accept it even. But it hurts the movie as a whole when the villain who replaces him is nowhere near as charasmatic or intimidating. This is coming from someone who has no connection to the comics.
>>13832153 You've got a point, but I sort of have a soft spot for villains who are totally self-obsessed chuuni poser wanksticks. Say whatever you want about TFA, but I really like the idea of Kylo Ren.
>>13832174 From the sound of things, that's actually not that uncommon a sentiment on the guy. A lot of it's just the fact that, as he is now, he's also fun to rip on.
Personally, still interested in seeing where his arc goes from here.
>>13832153 Unfortunately, this has been the problem with a lot of the MCU's villains. Despite tending to cast some usually pretty talented actors to play their villains, they all too often squander them in stock 2-D roles that never really get the chance to shine.
One of the reasons I liked Kingsley in IM3. Besides his actually making the Mandarin interesting while just being a talking head, he also still manages to make the role fun once he's been outed as a fraud, even if only for the sight of a critically acclaimed award-winning actor playing a comically drunken burnout.
>>13832153 >This is coming from someone who has no connection to the comics. That might be a good thing, because with the comic connection it's becomes a long time villain who gets replaced by a guy who appears only in one page of a comic before offing himself, which sounds even worse.
>>13833224 >Thor 2 I was actually pretty impressed they somehow managed to make an even worse movie than the first one. Plus, it's the least relevant movie in all of MCU. Also Loki pretended to die and is currently posing as Odin. There, now you can skip it if you weren't planning to already.
>>13830883 I fucking love the 2nd one if not for the suitcase armor, and the drones. The third one was eeeeh with the exception of the multiple suits flying around and Tony jumping in and out of them will nilly. That shit was awesome.
>>13833318 The only problems Ant-Man suffers from are kinda rehashing the plot progressions of the first Iron Man, and also committing some of the most obnoxious cases of unsubtle foreshadowing I've ever seen in a work of fiction.
They outright spoil what the finale boils down to.
>>13833011 I am so hype that even a shred of disappointment could crush the East coast in a singularity of despair.
