Because the Iron Man movies don't exist in a vacuum. Things have changed in the world and Tony Stark was at the heart of those world-changing events. Of course he's going to be affected by them.

It's not so much a changing of opinion can't happen. Of course it can.

But from "remarkably good" to "total shit?" You gotta' admit, that reads pretty funny.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Because like everyone else I do like a good bit of popcorn entertainment. I thought Avengers was a lot of fun. Upon examination, at least half of that script was total BS, but I don't always notice at first. Same with the trailer. I saw it, liked the fact it was moody, and was enthusiastic. Then some weeks passed, and I was talking to friends about it, and realized that Stark is a character that's already been played out. So has Bruce Wayne. And Peter Parker.. all those guys. Then I saw Cloud Atlas which has real ideas. I started writing, thinking, writing, and watching things again.

Then I realized that this new film is tripe, that it's cultural diarrhea, to borrow a phrase. I was pulled in like everyone else, there you have it.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

How exactly has Stark's character been played out? Stark is still continuing his evolution as a character. He is reaching new levels of understanding about himself and the world around him as it continues to change and grow. Not to mention the threat of the Mandarin that brings his story full circle again to the beginning. That is essentially what "Iron Man 3" is supposed to be about. It is supposed to explore Tony's place in the post Avenger world.

Hell, he's judging the movie on a teaser trailer released six months before the movie is set to be released! There's very little to judge the movie on at this point.

For me, the primary appeal of the first two films in the series was the irreverent tone. Why take the third installment so seriously? (Or at least, advertise it as such).

It's a sign of growth.

Doing the same things but bigger(Iron Man 2) ultimately blew up in Marvel's faces

If part 3 is

-Big intro by Iron Man/Stark
-Stark goes back to his garage and tinker's around
-Stark emerges from his garage with a new toy and beats bad guy.

Then Marvel would just be spinning its wheels and going nowhere in character development.


To make these movies work you need expand it's universe.

There are ramifications of the "Avengers" NY battle. We're going to see them

No offence, but that sounds really pretentious.

"I used to like these entertaining movies, but then I saw Cloud Atlas, and BAM...I realized all movies must be about big, world changing ideas, and everything else just isn't worth it."

I've seen Cloud Atlas twice and read the book three times. I love, I think it's brilliant. I think it's one of the best films of the year.

But I also think The Avengers is one of the best films of the year.

How can they be comparable? Well, they're not, really.

But they both succeed brilliantly in what they set out to achieve. But they want to achieve different things. Cloud Atlas wants to make you think, expose you to ideas, to consider your place in time. The Avengers just wants to be a roller coaster. And there's nothing wrong with that.

Might as well tear down all roller coasters, damn frivolous things. I'm going to sit on a rock and contemplate the universe.

I love how your are judging a film that's not even released yet. The sure sign of an educated mind who has no time for cultural diarrhea.
Go watch the damned thing, THEN judge. If you hate it then, fine. But don't get all high and mighty and preachy because you saw something that's being labled as meaningfull by a few and has thus changed your life.

I can't stand it when people proclaim how movies MUST make people think, and realize, and ponder the meaning of life. Hell, movies were made to enterain. Some of the first images ever to be put on film were frickin porn. How's that for the cultural media of film?
Bleh. Some movies are thought provocotive, others are just dumb entertianment. Both have their values, by their own standards.

And if it took you weeks to realize that Avengers isn't exactly Oscar-material, you need to start wondering just how strong a judge you are when it comes to condeming movies.

^Exactly. It drives me crazy when people rip on something because it wasn't didn't have some big deep message. Not everything has to be like that, sometimes movies and TV shows are just meant to be fun entertainment.
