Re: Iron Man 3 - Blu-ray Review

Solid review, Mike. I will say that I actually enjoyed this much more than Iron Man 2, though I do agree with you about the Mandarin bit (at least to some extent). I am looking forward to watching this one again despite that part.

Not on IM3, it seemed to have lots of punch when needed. Personally most movies overdo the LFE I mean really when someone is punched in the head its not really going to shake the walls LOL
agreed, it was VERY well done... don't forget that theaters also have a tendency to bump the 30-60hz range to try and get a more pleasing audio experience in theaters...a flatter response like this can sound a bit less "explosive" than a theatrical experience, less to do with the mix and more to do with the equipment IMO

Re: Iron Man 3 - Blu-ray Review

This was the most disappointing movie of the summer for me but I'm going to rent it anyway. I hope it isn't as bad as I remember.

Thanks for the review Mike!

I agree - the Mandarin was a HUGE disappointment for me personally. I really have to wonder what they were thinking there.....

Now while Iím irritated with the twist regarding the Mandarin, but thatís only a minor annoyance. Many a superhero villain has been changed to modernize himself in a different era, and I have no problem with that as long as itís done with respect and keeps the essence of the character intact. Here, it was so poorly done he became a laughing stock and ultimately insulted the comic character; but enough on that, I may just be exerting a little nerd rage there since that was the LEAST of the films problems.
I think it's a triple cross. The mandarin is a complex character and I can't see Marvel throwing him away like that. I think the bumbling idiot act was just that, an act.

Re: Iron Man 3 - Blu-ray Review

Thanks for the review Mike. I liked the movie but didn't love it. The cant see how the Mandarin would be able to come back in the next one. I guess we will have to wait and see

I'd REALLY like to subscribe to that theory, but I honestly don't think so due to this type of twists and goofy villains is just up Shane Black's ally and I see it more happening due to Shane Black's involvement rather than some triple cross by Marvel.
