Randomly, but I ended up seeing Iron Man 3 again today and my mind decided to focus on the continuity errors, like Pepper magically getting some eyeshadow. Also something bigger.
Not really sure how I felt about Iron Man, tbh. It definitely wasn’t as good as The Avengers, but I feel like it was trying to top it so hard that it just missed the point. It’s not really a good sign when the best character in the movie isn’t Tony (or Pepper). Also not a good sign when I think, “What kind of Austin Powers bullshit…”
IDK. There were some parts that were good, like the action bit at the end, plus a scene about five minutes in that got me right in the fucking feels.
I was also severely disappointed by something, but that’s kind of my own fault.
I’m watching the motion comic Iron Man: Extremis thing on Netflix and…I don’t know how well it’s aged. I guess this is always kind of the problem with someone who’s as on the cutting edge and beyond as Tony Stark. They just mentioned a ~brand new cellphone prototype~ that has satellite broadband internet and can download an mp3 in thirty seconds.
Also it looks like an old Nokia that you could kill someone with.
So half-watching Iron Man 2, trying not to have Natalie Rushman feels, and someone that I went to high school with literally just had a baby and updated Facebook.
I’m sure that say something, but I’m not sure what.
