Honestly Rhodey was also a racist stereotype in the olden days. Saying things like "brother, sweet sister" and such. Suffice it to say I'm shocked he's still a black guy today. They should've made him white because there's no WAY you can adapt Rhodes today and not have him be the guy RDJ played in Tropic Thunder.

Well, if that was their goal, they could have just changed the ethnicity

While I can understand why some would prefer a more straight-forward villain, I can't blame them for doing something different, and something that has a bit of intellectual weight to it.

That's not a bad thing. The movie can be fun and still contain some worthwhile ideas.

Yeah there was one person on the Thor forums that apparently found that line incredibly hurtful. I can't remember if she was adopted herself or if she was just trying to defend poor Loki though.

Here's an article over the Avengers line. There was even a petition to try and get them to edit out that line for the DVD.

That's ridiculous, that line has been used in movies, books, cartoons etc for decades.

I'm am so sick of this PC crap....

Meh. Not the same thing at all. Yes, they could have probably found a way to make the Mandarin a Chinese bad guy without it being a racist stereotype.

But who cares?

What they did is likely more interesting than that would have been.

Saw this last night. Honestly, it's about even with IM2. I felt it was too jokey and never got serious enough. There's no sense of danger or immediacy. It feels like they rolled Stark back from the place Avengers took him (self sacrifice) just to let him more forward again. In other words, his arc felt forced. The only action piece that was interesting was the plane rescue, but even it felt a bit anti-climatic. The ending battle was just clutter. I'm still waiting for a Marvel movie which has a message.

6/10

Exactly! And it was so obvious in Avengers, before that line and after, that Thor clearly still thought of Loki as his brother and was trying to save him from himself. It was Loki who rejected it.

That's true. I thought the line was a little forced, tbh, coming from Thor. He doesn't seem to ever have thought of Loki as anything but his brother. But I guess one could see it as a momentary gut reaction to distance himself a bit from Loki's recent crimes.

Thanks! I can't believe this joke escalated like that.

That's all it was, an awkward moment from Thor.

I was seething at the end of IM 3, SEETHING.
A lot of people in my movie theatre were like that as well. Few people were saying "there better be something after these credits to save this movie." I just didn't like it and really did think Spider-Man 3/3rd movie curse as soon as we reached the middle of the film. The story was completely made up and the teasing of what we THOUGHT we were going to get was a travesty, making the race debate a moot point in the end, lol.

A good friend of mine is adopted and didn't find out until a very late age, right before he went off to college, he was very pissed at his adoptive parents for a while, but they mended ways and he found his birth mother year later and have become good friends.

That line in the movie came up in a discussion one day and he told me he laughed his ass off at that line. He said it's OK for him because there's weird **** his adoptive parents do (his dad would ask his mom if they wanted to have sex at the dinner table and other weird akward stuff like that), so he can just say, "hey I'm adopted". LOL!

I have a question about the film:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Has Tony ever removed the shrapnel by his heart in any comic book series? This is the only part of the movie where I had a question. Yes, I know that Tony is still Iron Man even without the arc reactor and I know that's the point of the movie. I always liked how his character had some sort of deficiency that made him a little more human.

7.5/10
Can't give half ratings so I rounded up to 8 when I voted.
Thought it was a good movie, better than IM2, but not by much. I definitely had 2 major complaints already noted in this forum several times.
Taking the family to see it early Sat and looking forward to a 2nd viewing.
