    Just saw Iron Man 3 last night and had a blast with it. Not gonna lie, I think it's the best of the Iron Man films and one of the few times in movie history, that good things come in threes.

    Iron Man 3 is unpredictable, action packed, and probably one of the darker entries in the Marvel film franchise. Each character (both good and bad ones) have a dramatic story arc that culminates into a satisfying finale.

    You couldn't tell from the previews that this movie is an allegory for the war on terror juxtaposed against a Christmas setting.

    My one complaint is that you see an Iron Man suit either break or fall into pieces at least a dozen times (selling toys there Disney?). Maybe it's symbolic but after the first three or so times it quickly loses dramatic effect.

    Overall it's a cool thrill ride that I wouldn't mind seeing again. While the first two were fun and funny, Iron Man 3 does both while providing a sense of purpose.

    I'm really surprised that its Tomatometer is just above Iron Man 2 (which was by far an inferior film). Did anybody see Iron Man 3 yet? I'd love to hear what you guys thought about it

          We saw it last night. Eh,it was ok. But I gotta say, Superhero movies are a bubble that will soon burst. There is only so much Wow-Wee! you can take before Reality finally slaps you in face and you realize you're just watching the shenanigans of people in spamdex...

            Dayumn, opening box office was only ten million less then Avengers, totally was not expecting that.

            Guild Nav, I agree man. I think I'm good on Iron Man movies for now and I don't think there's gonna be a sequel for sometime.

            I'm excited for phase two and three, mainly the Dr. Strange movie haha He has the coolest villains, including Lord Cthulhu himself aka fear lords

              I thought it was great. I went to the midnight premiere, had to stand an hour and a half in the cold wind, but it was worth it.

              **might contain spoilers**
              Can someone explain to me why people are so upset about the Mandarin? I thought the outcome was pretty funny and I ended up loving the character because he was damn hilarious.

                Just got back from seeing it. It was pretty good. Better than the 2nd movie, but not as good as the first one

                  Must. See. Iron Man 3.
                  There is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

                  One is evil and the other one is good. Which wolf will win? The one you feed the most.

                    Robert Downey is genius. I probably wait for the DVD release though.

                      Watched it yesterday.

                      Great movie. Not quite up there with Avengers, but a well done film that easily surpassed the second one, and rose to the level of the first. I enjoyed it, though one of the movie "twists" did disappoint me a bit. Oh well.

                        I agree 100%. the "twist" kind of let met down however, the movie itself was excellent.

                          I liked it, not on par with the first but better than part 2

                            I just saw it and this sums up my feelings, though I wouldn't say I liked it. It's one of those movies I didn't feel ripped-off by seeing it, but I'd never watch it again.

                            I wasn't a fan of the "twists" at all. I also wasn't a fan of some other things I can't really mention due to spoilers.

                              I wonder if Man of Steel will be more popular than Iron Man 3.

                                Personally, I don't think so. A lot of people seem to think it's going to be the big hit of the Summer, but I just don't see it. I think it makes less than Iron Man 3 and Star Trek into the Darkness.

                                  Iron Man 3 has already made a billion.

                                    Wow. Let's see Man of Steel top that.
