Default Re: Rank the Iron Man movies (IM, IM2, and IM3)

I don't give much of a **** about directing 'style' as I don't subscribe to auteur theory. I'll take a solid craftsman over an auteur any day of the week. And Whedon is in this case at least definitely the former. IM3 felt like a Shane Black movie with Iron Man characters in it rather than an Iron Man movie with Shane Black touches. I really don't dig that. I'm of the opinion that the property/concept is king and those working on it should always be in service to that rather than the other way around which is exactly what an auteur does.
