    So I paid like $12 to see iron man 3. ( I had nothing better to do this evening ) what a load of shit.. I mean the U.S. president in an iron man suit really? Is the director on cheap crack or something? And all the Audi ads wtf ?

    Its Hollywood anyway so I shouldn't have expected much. But this a new low from Hollywood for me, considering I watched the first iron man and thought it was cool.
     
  2. Hollywood should pay me to waste time watching their stupid movies.

    I would have laughed too but it was an economy seat. Hong Kong is damn expensive.

    Superhero movies are beyond my understanding. Ok, I can get the original appeal of a setting/origin such as spider man. But when you see how the stories are worked out, and even worse, most movie adaptions I guess cheesy taste is a must.

    I wonder if it was Hollywood that made The Death of Superman (from the comic book) into a pg13 cartoon movie and put it in the kids section at the video store..

    /BTW, did you know that Holly wood is used to make magic wands...

    The 'Iron man' comic/franchise is about the ongoing exploits of a multi-billion dollar industrialist who also happens to wear a suite and fight the evils as he see's them.
    And you think that the president wearing a similar suite is beyond the realms of possibility?
    I would say, the level of patriotism has increased since the first film.
    You either have to buy into that or find it faintly ridiculous in comparison to the real world. Remembering this isn't the real world.
    Many 'blockbusters' have overt commercial product placements.
    The most recent, imho, is OO7/James bond.
    It stretches back decades, though.
    I remember Superman crashing through a soft drink advertisement billboard, and thinking: Should I buy that or not?
    These types of films have to be financed somehow, and are not the total picture with regards to 'Hollywood films'.
    It could have pushed the limits for you, and also not enthralled you at all. Fair enough.
    I think you might be 'angry' at the balance being wrong rather than the industry as a whole.

    Luckily you don't have to watch anything you don't want to.

    Last movie I watched was the Hobbit in 3D. I jumped when Gandalf lit a pine cone and threw it. Looked like it was coming right at me.

    Everyone's been burned on movies man. Don't even get me started on Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. I walked out and watched Kung Fu Hustle which kicked ass.

    You have to compare similar careers not history per se.
    What career would Todd have had if he didn't get mixed up with drugs?
    More than likely guest spots on minor TV shows and made for TV movies - which ended up happening anyway.
    Would Todd have become a Hollywood A list actor or even a contender? Who knows.
    Maybe the same career as Scott Baio.

    We went to the movie theater today too. We took Sophia to watch Jurassic Park 3D. The only time I step into a movie theater is if a friend asks me or to take my kid to watch a kid movie. The best comment she made throughout the movie was at the end when she said the T-Rex and the velociraptors were playing mega fight. She brought her boa to the theater too and kept saying it was a brachiosaurus.

    I wouldn't make any effort on my part to watch Iron Man 3. I guess I could watch it if it was on tv, but I also don't have cable so that's never gonna happen.

    It will enevitably be on TV you can view. That's what happens. See you in 3-4 years.

    I don't get any channels whatsoever, you turn my tv on and there's nothing but static. I guess I could get some channels if I got an antenna? Or something. I don't even know, but why bother?
     
  16. I have no idea what is even playing at the movie theatres. No clue at all. LOL. Am I missing out on anything epic?

    You might be able to watch Iron Man 3 at some point :p If you do not get any whatsoever I wonder why you suggest you could watch it if it was on TV. It really does not matter, to be honest.

    Because it's the type of movie I found myself watching when I had cable. I'm not interested in them, but I'm being a lazy bum and everything there is to watch is on the same category. It's the same reason why I disconnected my cable.

    It isn't so much about reality and how possible it is to have the president in the suit, but its more about how it is so obvious that a good part of the movie script was written specifically to reach this cheesy one liner scene where it is said "you look good in that suit mr.president".
    The level of patriotism has definitely increased beyond tasteful levels.
    I agree about the balance thing.
    Have you seen the movie?
