Rafaelsaid on Friday, June 21, 2013 7:25:19 PMWhat made this movie a classic for you Richard? This movie got so boring after the Malibu attack, there was no feeling of threat, the mandarin was a joke and Guy Pearce was like a disney villain. The best thing was the action sequences but common Pepper Potts a superhuman? Some of the villain making jokes when they captured Tony? Lord have Mercy!

Glennsaid on Saturday, May 11, 2013 1:00:31 PMI enjoyed the film, probably more the second time I watched it than the first. The film feels more humorous in tone than the previous ones, as Tony Stark's Iron Man armor is used for comical effect more often, and the other characters seem to be trying to match Stark's razor-tongued wit. The quirky Shane Black-ness is increased in the middle portion of the film when Stark finds himself in Tennessee with a busted prototype suit and befriending an intelligent young kid (a kid so smart he almost seems like a movie cliche), though the attempt to focus on Stark more than his armor by taking the character out of his element and stripping him of most of his toys is commendable. A big twist in regards to a certain character will feel like a cheat for some, but a bigger meaning behind who the character is supposed to be in regards to our society and its need to create villains works well too. And the film certainly delivers in the action category. I particularly liked the fight scene as Tony takes on the Mandarin's thugs using a gun and only a few parts of his armor, as it had plenty of cheeky flair than the usual armored battle we've seen in the Iron Man series.

and Iron Man 3. Tony shooting at bad guys without his suit on didn't work for me. Favereau should have came back, while Black have just done Die Hard 5.
borissaid on Thursday, May 02, 2013 12:04:22 AMHey Richard, could you please post written reviews or transcripts of your video reviews also? I like your reviewing style and your taste in film is similar to mine, but I do not like video reviews.
If you already to have written reviews somewhere then just point me at 'em if you would be so kind :D
Thanks and keep up the good work.
