    Just doing a little harmless trolling to the obvious troll article. :) Sue me, I'm bored and got a laugh out of it.

    uhmm...:huh: I literally have no idea where that bolded part comes from. I don't think I've ever even talked about IM2 on these boards. And to address the rest there's no way of telling IM3 will be a flop. Unless you have a time machine or can see the future it's impossible. Also it's the first Marvel movie following Avengers which if you don't recall was HUGE... so I can assume with a fair amount of accuracy that this will also be a financial success. Anyways for sure done flaming with you here.. way to ruin all the fun :(

    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is from Novel, so he did not write Novel.

    I did not say IM3 flop.
    Iron Man 3 is not going to flop, but the question is how good it is going to be?

    Its view that you ignore the facts.

    Bait...

    But i do agree the bare bones of the plot is similar to IM2 but that is very similar to IM1 and that is very similar to extremis motion comic and BAM! back to IM3 in full circle.

    FreedomFreeLife, with your join date, limited posts, and obvious trolling, you should probably just get out of here and let us enjoy this movie if you won't.

    They always seem to pop up just after a new trailer is released or a film opens.

    Edit: After reading some of his past posts, looks like he got lost on his way to the TASM 2 boards.

    That's the pattern. The only surprising thing is that it took them longer to start this time around.

    You know if you keep feeding a stray it won't go away, right? Starve it of attention and it will soon find another home.

    Also the air is a fight on Air Force one, not just an attack
    And war machine attacking a terrorist camp
    And tony fighting with a gun and gauntlet.

    You are missing a lot of sequences

    Or people coud just stop responding to the OP. Post great gifs from the trailer, discuss how badass the Iron Legion looked and don't stress over one guy's opinion. He'll get tired of himself soon enough if no one plays into his little *****fest.

    Get your damn facts straight, do you even know ANY of these movies? Or are you somewhat familiar with movies outside of those based on comic books?

    The Monster Squad he co-wrote with Fred Dekker, and is regarded as a cult. It's a nice pastiche between adventure and horror for kids, pretty much in the vein of The Goonies.

    Lethal Weapon 3 & 4 he WASN'T INVOLVED WITH, AT ALL. He was just credited for it since he wrote the FIRST Lethal Weapon (and the story for part 2, but even then he didn't write the script for that). And as you may know (or not), the first Lethal Weapon is one of the milestones in action history. A brillant remodeling of classic genres such as noir and western.

    The Last Boy Scout is just ****ing badass. Period. An underrated gem, and together with True Romance one of the best flicks directed by Tony Scott.

    The Long Kiss Goodnight is maybe the one I liked the least out of Black's writing resume, but it's still a sweet thriller. Not his best work, though.

    I never really count The Last Action Hero as Black's work, as he was only one of many writers (he was brought in to rewrite the script, and other writers followed), and there's only so much of his stuff in the movie.

    And... last but not least, after offering such brillant entries to the action genre Black disappeared for a while, only to come back as the writer and director of the great black comedy Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. A movie as sharp as a razor. And the movie is only PARTIALLY based on a novel. ;)

    AND - I just rewatched Iron Man 2 last week, and it does have its fair share of problems, but those have nothing to do with the "politics ****" (what is it with comic book fans and their hate for storytelling which has nothing to do with fights? How old are you, man, four?). Its main problem is that, after an interesting beginning, the script deflates and ends up being a sequence of scenes, without really anything at stake or a red line which gets through the story and keeps you hooked. It just... is. And making things worse is "The Avengers" commercial with Nick Fury and the Widow joining Tony Stark for a donut, AND RESOLVING A PLOT POINT. o_O Like they didn't know how they hell they could resolve that point. The script is weak sauce, with the "politics ****" being the most interesting part of it. What saves the movie is Jon Favreau's directing (he has a good eye, should have directed "The Avengers") and the cast. That's about it.

    P.S.: I hope you understand English.

    P.P.S.: Black won't throw in action just for the sake of it (smart dude!):
