You didn't miss much. It didn't set up anything big.Iron Man 3. Fucking brilliant, I loved the final battle scene and there were certainly aspects of it which were totally unexpected.
I did forget to watch the post-credit scene, though.
it's revealed Starks monologue is to Bruce Banner and he nodded off as Stark explained his story
Thematically, its practically a different movie. Its worth seeking out.I was just reading about it and no, I haven't. The DVD box set I bought last year had the theatrical version, for some reason. I'll try and watch it, but since it's not on Netflix stream or whatever, it'll be a while. I can't see myself spending much money just to see a different cut and a few added scenes.
Iron Man 3. 5/10. I don't know why I find CGI in Jurassic Park or The Matrix and other older movies more believable, but in iron man 3 it didn't feel like it was there to enhance the movie, I felt like it was the movie, that together with countless one-liners. It was entertaining to watch but definitely not a must see unless you really are a fan. Also; the speedtest.net placement was something different alongside AUDI AUDI AUDI.
What's kinda funny is how the Iron Man movies had Audis, while The Avengers had Acura PP and Tony was driving that NSX concept instead of an R8.Good point. I was even mildly amused by the "nerdy" product placements (not only speedtest, also Sun/Oracle). The Audi PP, on the other hand, was quite a bit over the top this time.
The movie was pretty good until towards the end, the ending was lame! This is like the god-child ending that Mass Effect pulled. It essentially explained nothing! If I understand the ending correctly, the image Ellie saw was not actually his dad, but the Vegan (or a hologram left by the now extinct Vegan). But she really didn't see anything, it's like "this is the universe in HD, not like your crappy telescope images", then it sends her back. And how can all the scientists in the inquiry missed the 18 hours of static? I was hoping the big reveal to be more climactic, like maybe the Vegans gives her a cryptic book (or storage device) and now all of mankind will work together to decode it and build more new devices. By the end of the movie it really felt like the half trillion dollar was wasted, because it only let a single human to see her father again.
