    Really even if you disliked the movie I doubt it's as bad as a 4/10 or 5/10. There are definitely worst superhero movies X3, Spider Man 3, Green lantern, both Ghost Rider movies, and even Superman Returns.

    Yes I think so. Because killian was easily a better villain than vanko or hammer, and the finale was much more spectacular and the final fight wasn't underwhelming. In im2 vanko showed up, did pretty much nothing, and then died

    The list of bad superhero movies is pretty long. In addition to the ones you listed, I'd have to list Superman 3, Superman 4, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, Catwoman, Elektra, Daredevil, Wolverine, Fantastic Four, Fantastic Four 2, Blade 3, etc.

    So, with every new movie, quality went down.

    I'm still torn between 1 and 3, and Avengers for that matter. 2 is definitely the odd man out, but I feel a lot more love for 2 than most people.

    I need to go back watch 1 and 3 again. It's like asking me which of my children is my favorite. :)

    Punisher War Zone is a guilty pleasure movie for me. Yes it's horrible, but it's sooo bad it is fun to watch. What it got like a 1% RT rating? When I saw that I knew I had to go see it.

    The Thomas Jane movie was bland and disappointing with a horrible villain. I appreciate Jane's performance, and the fact that on his own he did an internet viral pseudo sequel on his own. But the movie was horrible, starting with the horrible decision to make John Travolta the main villain.

    A number of bad superhero movies are so bad they're fun to watch. Batman & Robin probably tops that list because of all the ice puns by Mr. Freeze. It is a terrible movie, but hilarious to watch...especially if you have a drinking game going. :woot:

    Agreed 100%. The only legitimate complaint is the twist. Everything else, not being in the armor enough, the humor etc is just exaggeration. Iron Man 2 had more humor at inappropriate times. Like on the race track where they hit Ivan with the car repeatedly...and yet he's not dead :huh: Yeah that wasn't using humor at the expense of the film.

    With Iron Man 3 it boils down to whether the twist bothered you or not. I'm a comic fan, a thought it was hilarious. I also didn't spoil it with too much info going in. A lot of people built something in their minds by watching way too many previews then when they see the movie disappointment ensues. If a person goes in open minded I'm confident they'll like the film as most non-comic related reviewers seem to.

    It has a great focus on character. Show's Tony at his best. Gives Rhodey something to actually due and a personality this time around (Ceadle was just boring in IM2). Even give Pepper her chance to shine. All around a fantastic trilogy. Best Superhero one thus far.

    Iron Man > Iron Man 3 >>>>>> Iron Man 2

    IM and IM3 are close. I think that if I judged each individual quality of those two movies, 3 would win (mainly because I tought the script and performances were much tougher) but IM is a better movie overall, as all it's elements flow well.

    IM2 is enjoyable, but ultimately a mess.

    My order and why:

    1) Iron Man - well executed origin story and a classic now, traditional superhero myth that was translated well on screen, launching point and set the tone for the MCU
    2) Iron Man 3 - I enjoyed that Marvel took risks and wants to push the superhero genre beyond the traditional CBM storytelling, dialogue and humor was great, action and final battle were the best among the three films, movie is certainly not without its flaws but I still found it to be a solid net positive
    3) Iron Man 2 - as a solo movie this was almost a disaster, other than being a giant collection of easter eggs for Avengers it didn't offer much else for me, still my least favorite MCU movie

    Avengers is still the top of my list followed by IM1, then IM3 is a long way down as third favorite.

    IM 9/10
    IM3 7.5/10
    IM2. 7/10

    IM was the best by far and still one of the best superhero movies to date, IMO. Although the action was limited, the story, villains, and getting a chance to see Tony turn into IM just can't be trumped.

    1. Iron Man
    2. Iron Man 3 (second but close and I think it'll work better on repeated viewings than Iron Man)
    3. Iron Man 2 (definitely the weakest MCU movie to date, not a bad movie per se, kind of a lovable mess in fact)

    Iron Man-8/10
    Iron Man 3-8/10
    Iron Man 2-4/10

    Iron Man and Iron Man 3 are tied for me. I'll have to see how Iron Man 3 holds up to break the tie.

    1)Iron Man
    2)Iron Man 3
    3)Iron Man 2

    Iron Man - 10/10 (Best origin movie ever and just a classic film. Period.)

    Iron Man 2 - 6/10 (Tony was a *****e for most of the movie and didn't really grow as a character)

    Iron Man 3 - 6.1/10 (Reminded me of Transformers minus the spectacular set pieces)

    I agree with everything you said, I loved all 3 films and easily the best thrilogy to date, I really had no issue with the twist, been a fan of the character since I was 9 and frankly i liked the twist, will there be a 4th installment, who knows, but right now, I am super thrilled with what we have gotten.
