I just watched Ironman 3. I liked it. Though I know some people were disappointed. I'm trying to figure out why. The only term that keeps on coming to mind is 'unplugged'. It didn't have the all-out 'tech bigness' of the previous one.
It felt more 'human' again. For a while there, it reminded me of tandem movies like Lethal Weapon with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. Even the villain was cut down to size. No big revenge motive, no twisted psycho plot. It's all about money. So I guess this doesn't appeal as much?
But I enjoyed it, anyway. It brought back the McGyver-ish Tony Stark doing an instructional ("how-to-become-an-assault-weapon-using-hardware-material").
And I watched it in 3D. Which I have now started to really enjoy. There is more depth, more layering, methinks. I'm now thinking whether that 3D TV is worth the investment.
