Review: Iron Man 3

F.Y.I. I have tried to make this review spoiler free, but of course everyone has different levels of spoiler. This has no more spoilers than the trailer IMO.

BEWARE there are spoilers in the comments

Title: Iron Man 3
Cast:
Robert Downey Jr. ... Tony Stark
Gwyneth Paltrow ... Pepper Potts
Don Cheadle ... Colonel James Rhodes
Guy Pearce ... Aldrich Killian
Rebecca Hall ... Maya Hansen
Jon Favreau ... Happy Hogan
Ben Kingsley ... The Mandarin

Summary: The USA is under threat by a terrorist named The Mandarin who keeps hacking into their TV to show pictures of atrocities and make threats. People are dying in explosions all over the world. Tony Stark is having trouble with flashbacks to New York and his underlying need to protect Pepper. When circumstances put him up against the Mandarin he starts a journey that will change everything ... again.

I love this film. There are no two ways about it, Soph and I snuck off to see it yesterday afternoon and I would go and see it again today in a heartbeat. However, I have seen people say it's better than The Avengers and I would have to disagree. It's not the acting or the effects or the plot that make me say that, it's the humour. Maybe it needs a few Norse deities to knock off screen or a Hulk, but the humour in The Avengers is better. There are parts that are very funny (and if I tell you the funniest bit in my opinion it will be a huge spoiler, so I'm not going to, I will just say it made me think of a  toad) and the first scene where he is testing the new armour is brilliant.

This film will stay with me for a long time ... when's the blu-ray coming out? :) This entry was originally posted at http://beren-writes.dreamwidth.org/250705.html.

Tom Hiddleston as the Laughing Cavalier fanart

So I’m doing this puzzle of the Laughing Cavalier and then I came upstairs to touch up a book cover I’m working on and this happened instead. Y’know, like it does.

(I was watching this art show the other day where this chap in the know was saying how the whole painting is basically a love letter).
