As for IRON MAN 3, I don’t know how that’s overrated in these parts, when everyone and their mother (including me) either picks that movie apart, or acts like its complete trash. I definitely have my problems with that movie, but at the end of the day, I’d be foolish to say it’s a truly bad film.

You see how you can easily flip flop these two and most would agree with both.

TDKR is totally overrated.

Exactly, it's not in a bad movie like those you mentioned, but it was laughable when people were talking Oscars with this movie, especially for best picture and director.
