Re: Iron Man 2: Grading, Review, Discussion **SPOILERS**

^ Exactly. It's an inferior movie compared to the first which lacked defining moments. Look I enjoyed the movie but I'm not so blind that I didn't recognize it's flaws as well. I think it was a mistake not to feature the Mandarin in the second film and yes I know he's hinted at but that's not enough. I would have made Valko a stooge of Ten Rings and made it clear that one of Ten Rings goals is the manipulation and trigger of the Armor Wars.

Re: Iron Man 2: Grading, Review, Discussion **SPOILERS**

Iron Man 2 is a huge hit on DVD/Blu-Ray

There was never any question that Iron Man 2 would be the biggest home video seller and rental the week ended Oct. 3. The only question was how big the blockbuster sequel would be, given the home entertainment industry’s lackluster performance these past three years.

But as it turned out, the Paramount Home Entertainment release, which many in the industry considered a harbinger of how the fourth quarter would fare, was a hands-down smash, selling an estimated 1.1 million discs its first day in stores and ending the week just past the 5 million-unit mark, according to Home Media Magazine’s Market Research Department.

Accordingly, Iron Man 2, which grossed $312 million in U.S. theaters, debuted at No. 1 on all three charts, by a wide margin.

On the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, Iron Man 2 outsold its nearest competitor, the Universal Studios comedy Get Him to the Greek, by a margin of more than 8-to-1. On the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, the discrepancy was even greater: Get Him to the Greek, with a $60.1 million box office pedigree, sold less than 7% as many Blu-ray Disc units as Iron Man 2.

Looks like Iron Man 3 will be happening.

Favearu said he didn't think "Iron Man 3" would happen until after "The Avengers" so sometime in 2013. We most likely won't hear any significant news on the third film for at least a year or so.

Re: Iron Man 2: Grading, Review, Discussion **SPOILERS**

I finally picked up the DVD/Blu-Ray combo. Best Buy had a great deal on it this week at $20.

Rewatching it, I still think it dragged a little in the middle. But I really love the racetrack fight and seeing Iron Man team up with War Machine at the end is still pretty cool. RDJ was perfectly cast as Tony Stark and the main reason most of the fans like these movies.

Hopefully the next one is much better. Now that we are done with introducing the Avengers, we can get back to the main character.

I think they should have at least stuck a Ten Rings logo on the envelope Vanko received. Something small that you'd have to pause the film to get a good look at.
