    iron man 2

    I walked in expecting to be disappointed and I wasn't. I liked how Toney Stark kicked up the narcissism a few notches. It really made for a believable character. Great follow up.

    I too thought it was going to be a dissapointment. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a little slow though, would've liked to see a little more action in it but apart from that it was a great movie. Would love to see the concept art for the groups of droids now.

    My favorite part was when Stark got plastered in the iron man suit and then brawled with war machine.

    "Drop me a phat beat to beat my friend's ass to"

    There was a lot more talking/Tony scenes than Iron Man and action scenes this time. I'm not sure that I mind though. I've heard people say it was a bad thing that the final fights were over so fast, but I understand why. I mean, Tony has a suit more powerful than his previous ones and the new Vibranium reactor makes nuclear power "look like a AAA battery." So it would have been silly if a bunch of drones powered by knock-off arc reactors posed an actual challenge to Iron Man. Same with final boss Whiplash.

    I think the pace could have been made a little better by cutting out some scenes. Things like the scene where Rhodey lands the suit at the air-force base could have easily been left out without losing plot. But overall it was enjoyable. There were a ton of fan service references throughout.

    Tyler Stout and Mike Saputo fan-made posters. The artists sold limited edition prints which went pretty fast. I seen one of Tyler's on ebay for $200.

    The movie was cool but for the next one: please not another armored suit topic! First Iron Man movie with an armored suit wearing enemy - ok. The second movie with even more armored suits - hmmmm, okay. But please not in a third movie. This is all too much. In Avatar there was this armored suit in the end battle too, now in Iron Man again - don´t they have any creative ideas?

    Can´t wait to see the Avenger movie!

    I thought it was really good. Mickey Roark did a great job as Whiplash (I respect him for not totally hamming it up and keeping it nice and subtle). I just wish the last fight could have been a little longer.

    Also, the chatty scenes between Tony and Pepper started giving me flashbacks to episodes of the Gilmore Girls after a while.

    I gotta say though, isn't this whole idea just awesome? The fact that Marvel created their own studio for the sole purpose of making an interconnected movie universe is just something that sounds too good to be true. Its also awesome that you might actually see characters outside their own movies is also something I'm having a nergasm over. I don't know if the Avengers movie will live up to the hype, but the fact that it is possible blows me the fuck away.

    Now, if DC could just get their shit together...everything outside the Dark Knight has been more than a little dissapointing, and I'm worried that they will be tempted to bring Robin into it after seeing the success of that little girl in Kick-Ass.

    I liked it and as others said the pacing could have been better.

    I think Don Cheadle was a bit tougher than Terrence Howard but it seems some of the chemistry between Stark and Rhody was gone due to the cast change. There was something about how their banter just worked in the first movie, and I felt it lacking in the sequel.

    Scarlet Johansen was rather decent in the movie. Gotta love the outfit, it definitely worked.

    I have to say though...WTF was with the ending credits. I wish they were as awesome as the first movie. People were walking out pretty quick because the credits were so boring....which of course means they missed the tie-in at the end.

    "....yeah..."

    Did anyone see Stan Lee appearing in the movie?
    He allways appears in the Marvel movies.

    Yep: http://io9.com/5303532/stan-lees-hil...cameo-revealed

    I unfortunately missed it. Some idiots had their smartphones on texting through the movie. I had to leave my seat to complain after asking them to put them away. People, your smartphones are like mag-lights, in a dark movie theater. Please turn them the hell off, or at least use something with a black background.

    Fun movie, great action, great cast etc, loved it, although not as much as the first. Mickey Rourke was awesome. That whole plot twist with Stark's dad nearly broke the whole movie for me though.

    Spoilers below.

    Just saw it. It was somewhat flawed, though still very enjoyable, and a worth successor to the first installment. I have to echo others about the pacing, and about the "climactic" battle. It felt like too little happened between Whiplash joining up with Hammer and Tony finding a new element hidden in the city of the future model. I didn't like how Whiplash went from being a very menacing and dynamic villain into just being sequestered away in Hammer's warehouse. The battle between him and Stark on the racetrack was the best scene of the movie. I loved Whiplash's confidence as he just brazenly strode out onto the racetrack and starting slicing cars in half, and the way his jumpsuit burned away was a very nice touch. When Tony finally got his Iron Man suit on, you knew a very fun can of whoopass had just been opened. I would have really liked to see a few more battles between that scene and the final battle. Speaking of the final battle, Whiplash went down even more quickly and easily than Jeff Bridges in the first one, despite being a smarter and more dangerous villain. A hint on how to avoid anticlimax, for any script writers who happen to be out there: if you spend a whole movie showing us how formidable the villain is, it should take the heroes more than a minute to defeat them. Tony's super-laser secret weapon was pretty damn badass, though.

    I have to agree with Arshes about Don Cheadle. His Rhody was a very different character than Terrence Howard's, and not necessarily in a good way. I though it was kind of a dick move for the studio to change actors as well, though I admit I don't know very much about that situation. I liked how they used his first line of dialog to essentially say "get over it" to all the complainer's, though.

    Despite those complaints, this was a very, very fun movie. Robert Downy Jr. was even wittier, funnier, and more full of himself this time around, and I loved it. The senate hearing scene was perhaps the best non-action scene in the movie. Good, funny dialog, with the characters bouncing off each other well. Samuel L. Jackson was great.

    What do you mean by "Concept isn't new"? We're talking about a comic book that started in 1963?
