So before the message got deleted by C. Lee for being off-topic... Michael Cain was almost fired from TDKR?

What in the world did he spoil? I'd kept myself away from that movies spoilers for a long time.

Watched IM3
LOVED THE MOVIE!!
Now my 3rd favouraite superhero movie after TDK and SM2(Comes mighty close to beating SM2)

Probably the best end to a trilogy
I hope this is the end to the Iron Man trilogy,Looks like it

Positives
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:

1.Rhodey is more likeable,Don does really well here.I didn't like his portrayal in IM2 but he get full marks here
2.The Buddy cop relationship between Tony and Rhodey
3.Tony depends a LOT on his ingenuity rather than his suit all the time and its lovely too.And it really works in the theme on the movie.'I am Tony Stark'
4.The theme 'I am Tony Stark' , I love how they show it that his greatest power is that he a Genius rather than the Suit
5.Action scenes-Really Really creative.The air rescue is done extremely well.Also the part where he is fighting a group of guys with just one boot and hand on-Excellent.Probably the most creative set pieces after Raimi's
6.Sir Ben's acting-Really well done
7.Pepper is much more than a Damsel in distress
8.The comedic moments-Well done and well spaced
9.Basically everything else about the movie


Negatives
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:

1.Killian's motives are ambiguous,we get a hint here and there but it is never expanded upon,could have done better there
2.The character of Maya Hansen and her motives are completely unclear,I still don't know what I feel about that Character
3.The final fight is little overdone towards the end
4.How the extremis works and what are its limits are left ambiguous

I don't think it was true that he almost got fired, but he ended up giving away some spoilers to both Inception and then for TDKR, much as how Foxx gave away his entire arc as Max Dillon(I said Max, not Electro, so hopefully no one tries to correct me on that ).

I forgot what he said, I'll look it up, but that's pretty much what happened. Nolan just likes everything about his films to remain a secret and I can only imagined what Nolan did once he saw those leaked Talia pics on set.

I remember one of our ninjas heard him say something like "how are they getting this?" I think it might've been Raganork. I am more curious about how Nolan responded to Jodi King's Talia spoiler.

With your track record of not understanding a villain's story when it tells you in the film(i.e., Bane), I can't trust these "negative" points

Ahh, yes! I forgot what Joey King said. I was just speaking of those leaked pics of "Miranda Tate" dressed up in LoS garb, haha. But, yah...I bet Nolan would do what he can to ruin Joey King's future acting career now

Good, 'cause I almost drove myself crazy trying to remember if anything even close to that had happened.

I agree with all points. Have you read the extremis comicbook? There extremis is a more defined, more explored concept. It's a lot different from the movie too, way better I would say. In the movie the extremis soldiers are pretty vulnerable, but in the comicbook a single extremis soldier goes easily toe to toe with- and takes down Tony when he is in a fully intact & fully functional armor. Tony is only able to take the guy down when (don't read if you want to read the comic) he wires the armor directly into his brain using extremis himself

No havent read the comic
I felt they needed to expand on the extent of the extremis powers and its vulnerabilities,I feel they made it too powerful(I mean breathing fire from his mouth,that was just overkill)
Also how come the other extremis guys arent that powerful and Killian is practically immortal when its the same virus?
Strange.
Apart from that,the movie was damn perfect

Yeah the fire breathing was never in the extremis comics so I don't understand why they had to add it. Also, I haven't read any later extremis-stories, but in the original one he only fought a single extremis warrior, and regrowing limbs wasn't a part of the concept, but the extremis already made him so indestructible that he didn't need that power

You just got a PS3 right?

If you haven't already, you need to play Uncharted.

Guys, I just had the most random and brillant thought ever. What if Quentin Tarintino directed the Grand Theft Auto movie? Imagine The Departed + Reservoir Dogs/Pulp Fiction.

uncharted 2 = pinnacle of perfection. probably my favourite game of all time. every ps3 owner needs to play it.

lol speaking of tarantino i was thinking he'd be a good choice to direct deadpool.
