The Iron Monger thread....what did you think overall?
 
This isn't a thread about Stane himself, nor about the battle between him and IM, though if it involves it, knock yourself out. The Iron Monger armor itself, if you are familiar with the original book's versions, did it move how you envisioned, was it as threatening as you felt it was in the books, and basically, did they get most of it right design and animation-wise?

All I can say is.....Iron Monger was a great villain at the end. I just love seeing he and Ironman smacking each other around. Perhaps Ezekiel Stane could take up the mantle and create his own Iron Monger suit to kill Tony Stark with for revenge of his father.

I enjoyed the Monger.

I personally thought they did a great job on both him and Iron man.

I liked Iron Monger as well.

Semi-related I suppose, but my theater laughed at Stane's line "Tony Stark built this in a cave!... with a pile of scraps!" I have the feeling that wasn't the intention of the line.

I personally didn't laugh because clearly the look on Obadiah's face meant he was displeased with the lack of progress.

Nor did I for those same reasons.

Also, his flight was spectacular. They really made me believe in the weight of the suit with how incredibly powerful his flight sequences looked.

I think some props should go to Jeff Bridges for respectfully taking the role seriously. This is a man who shaved his head because he thought it would be a good thing to do since Stane was bald in the comic. And especially despite Favreau saying he didn't have to do it.

I thought it was excellent.

My theater did the same thing. It kind of went over my head... I still don't get why it's funny...

Maybe it's because we're comicbook fans. We've read these sorts of dialogues all before. Maybe people thought it was funny that Stane mentioned how Tony Stark created the Mark I with such meager resources.

it was a funny line. stane's scientists thought it was impossible, but tony stark did it with spare parts in a cave. that's funny.

That and Tony Stark had already gotten over with the audience. There was also a bit of an audience response when the scientist said "we're not Tony Stark".

A lil off topic but one thing that I thought was funny was a lot of the ladies in the audience said "awwww" when the arm machine retrieved Tony's old power source for him.

But anyway the Iron Monger was sick. Hey, who does he attack first? :cwink:

Awesome movie. Jon Favreau has my respect.

Well, Shane's scientists had all the resources at their disposal, and they could not compete against Stark who was imprisoned and used spare parts to make his armor. That's funny.

it was funny to me because he was so dramatic about it all of the sudden...after he said WITH A PILE OF SCRAPS, I said, IN A VAN, DOWN BY THE RIVER really loud. And that kind of sums up to my why that particular line was funny.

I just thought of this while reloading a few Sims 2 expansions on my PC, but I'm just wondering how long it's going to take until crafty individuals start dubbing over Jeff Bridges lines in the movie as Obadiah with memorable soundbytes from The Big Lebowski.

It was a very funny line .

Re: The Iron Monger thread....what did you think overall?
 
Loved him. The suit felt REALLY powerful, even if it was very, very slow at flying. He moved pretty damn fast in it and I came away with a better impression of Iron Monger than the comics ever gave me- it felt like Tony was pretty seriously outclassed.

Re: The Iron Monger thread....what did you think overall?
 
I liked the Iron Monger. My only complaint is that a few of his lines at the end were a little corny, like "I've made a few upgrades of my own!"

Re: The Iron Monger thread....what did you think overall?
 
Pretty thin villain. Bridges did a nice job with little to work with.
