Movie Goers When Shane Black ruined Iron Man lore in Iron Man 3: "Comic book fans are so whiny. Not everything needs to be faithful."

Movie Goers When Shane Black ruined Predator lore in The Predator: "How is this even a Predator movie? It's ridiculous and goofy, totally unlike the other Predator films."

Yeah, welcome to the club. Now you know how we feel.

Prey (Hulu) - I'll admit I've never delved too deeply into the "Predator" universe (I know I've seen the original at least once, as well as AVP, the latter of which isn't canon as far as I'm aware), but I thought this was a very good time in a brutal, gory action film kinda way. Many great combat scenes.

Ghost in the Shell ARISE 1 & 2 (Blu-Ray) - A pair of hour long OVAs in the GitS universe (billed as sort of a prequel to the other adaptations, though I'm not exactly sure if it fits into any of their continuities). Anyhow they're pretty good stuff if you like sci-fi action anime with more mature tone & themes.

Watched a few of the special features & found it amusing when they interviewed a fan during a segment filmed at an anime convention in 2013, and they were glad that the Major "wasn't denigrated like Samus in Other M", lol.

@RR529
I think that seems to be the consensus among Predator fans too. I've seen one notable YouTuber (Full Fat Videos) ranking it above AvP, but just below Predator 2. That's not a bad ranking, especially when you consider that he openly admits he had a soft spot for Predator 2 despite its flaws (aka he's biased about Predator 2).

@Rambler Ooh, NIN are in it? I'm may have to find it on Youtube.

When I tried Twins Peaks and I watched the first season I was told the first season is a bit iffy but the second season is good, so I watch the second season and it's bit better then there's a big dip so I asked a hardcore fan and he's summary was basically the same so this major show which everyone was obsessed with has maybe half a decent season?

My major disappointment was it was more odd than trippy, I want more backwards jazz! Although it's probably my own fault as I was expecting something like Battlestar Galactica or The Sopranos of classic top tier binging but rather a curiosity.

I heard they are making a new "Ferris Bueller thing" and I got an idea.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off but set in a nursing home, hear me out. My idea can reuse the script from the first movie just change the location and antagonist, and reason for why Ferris Bueller wants out.

I'm only sharing this because I cried laughing when I thought of it. It's a dumb idea but hey at least it might never happen.

The Bob's Burgers Movie (Hulu) - pretty much feels like a long, better animated, episode of the TV series. As someone who finds the show amusing from time to time it elicited a few chuckles, so whether or not you'll get on with it depends on how you feel about the show.

Heavy Metal (Tubi) - Early 80's animated film featuring an anthology of sci-fi & fantasy stories loosely connected by a "narrative" surrounding the source of evil in the universe (a glowing green orb). The overall story is a wash, but it's an interesting curio filled with copious amounts of nudity & gore, and animation that while rough in spots looks like they were having fun experimenting around with it.

Not really, as there have been tons of people and YouTube videos that defended the film too. I feel like it's a more unpopular opinion to dislike the film, but I guess popularity's kinda subjective to begin with.

Anyway, my post wasn't really so much about Iron Man 3, and more about getting annoyed over your favorite franchises becoming distorted into something entirely different from what the franchises were like (Predator becoming more goofy and PG-13, Spider-Man Noir going from a cool noir detective to... Nicolas Cage). On that note, I feel like I'm the only person on the planet who doesn't like Into the Spider-Verse. That, I can say with certainty, is an unpopular opinion.

I don't really mind Iron Man 3 much anymore nowadays, even with its Mandarin twist. It's passable, just like most MCU films for me.

Nope, I like Iron Man 3 as well. I think it's sorely misunderstood.

Are we comparing our favorite movies now? lol

If so, one of my favorite movies is Casino Royale (the Daniel Craig one). Enjoy the movie at your local streaming service.

@jump
That sounds exactly like a conversation I had a school, where I pestered a friend to watch Twin Peaks, and when he did, it was the worst episode of the whole lot!

Series 1 - 8 episodes or so - is utterly fantastic, beautifully shot, quirky characters and amazing dialogue.
Series 2 starts off really strong, but the combination of the network wanting to resolve who Laura's killer and David Lynch effectively abandoning the programme to make Wild At Heart resulted in a series that to all intents and purposes was a parody of the previous episodes.
Lynch came back for the final episode (the network killed it off), and that is just an outstanding hour of TV. Scary, emotional, and just plain odd, it is, IMHO on of the best episodes of anything I've ever seen.

Series 3 (with NIN in it) is very different as that is totally controlled and directed by Lynch (with his co-writer), and is almost like a greatest hits of his obsessions, moods and ideas. It really feels like a swansong. It's brilliant, but very different to the first two series.

It's my favourite TV series and the only one I've watched repeatedly and have had in many formats, even though half the second series is, well, rubbish.

It's kinda weird seeing how everyone here is saying Iron Man 3 is so underrated.

Granted, 3 is my least favorite of the series, but almost everywhere else I've been on the net the opinion seems to be that 2 is the weak one & people generally seem to like 3 (at least better than 2).

Precisely.

But ironically enough... I kinda liked Iron Man 2 more than 3 because it had a decent script buried beneath studio interference. I feel like if Jon Favreau had more creative say/freedom instead of being forced to advertise the upcoming Avengers tie-ins, that movie might've been more decent. It's based on a very interesting and emotional story arc from the comics too, "Demon in a Bottle," which dealt with Tony's alcoholism. I could only wonder if they cast RDJ just to have him play out that arc in Iron Man 2. If so, I'd say they wasted the opportunity to tell a story that would've resonated with both RDJ (in dealing with his demons on-screen) and the audience.

I feel like Hi-Top Films explained it better than me why this sequel could've been so good:

@Rambler genuine question but do you feel the show is trippy? That was my hang up on it as all the memes and parodies suggested it was gonna be an acid trip.

While yes, I think 3 is the best one, and that Iron Man 1 is pretty sweet and better than 2, Iron Man 2 is still enjoyable to me, even with all its issues. While I think that Iron Man 3 has the best humor (hot take) and definitely the best fight scenes (really they're so criminally underrated and unique to the MCU), and that Iron Man 1 has the best introduction to new (or then-new) characters and the best overall story, 2 still holds a special place in my heart, and probably has some of the coolest scenes in the Iron Man trilogy, especially that suitcase scene, that's amazing to this day.

Iron Man 3 is awesome. It's in my top 10 superhero films. I do enjoy Iron Man 2 it's not perfect but it's got a cameo from real life Tony Stark it get's brownie points just for that.
