    -The 1999 flashback intro with "Blue" playing over the Paramount logo. That year stirs up particularly nostalgic memories for me as it's really when I came into my own as a teenager.

    - Tony's freak-out when he thought the kid asking for an autograph said "wormhole"

    - Mandarin's interrupting broadcasts (before the..... *sigh*.... twist revealed the truth)

    - The kid was okay. Not really annoying like kids should be. Maybe they're getting better at casting them.

    I liked:
    How Rhodey had a cool head as Iron Patriot, when the typical movie soldier would have nuked the bunkers from orbit.
    The kid Harley was great, his line about his father getting scratchers, and everything after that.
    That it wasn't all darkity dark darkness, but also not super campy. It was a fun movie.
    Gary..., Gary was great.
    The removal of the reactor, he can build the reactor into his suits, and nobody else is 'Tony Stark', he creates the tech, so it's his, he doesn't need a built in reactor.

    Most of the film overall except a few things with my main problem being the Mandarin twist But I ain't as pissed about it much as others are.

    No matter how fleeting, as an 80's baby, seeing Tony wear the Silver Centurion armor was awesome! I've always wanted to see some variation of it in these films, and finally getting that for a bit was pretty sweet.

    Loved the stylized end credit sequence & the " Can You Dig It" song that played with it. Pretty cool. The score for IM3 was pretty good. Not better than IM1 but way better than the Tim Button like crap we got in IM2.

    Just got back from seeing it again, and was just as good the 2nd time, I agree with Doc Sampson, seeing the Silver Centurian Armor was sweet, I grew up reading those issues and was really nice seeing that armor.
    Loved the villains in this as well, while I have never really been a fan of the Extremis story line it did make a good movie and interesting take on things.
    I know there is alot of hate for the Mandarin twist as a life long fan I get it, but honestly it did not really bother me, it did not spoil my enjoyment of this film, if this is the last Iron man film, then it was a good ending to a terrific trilogy.

    Loved finally seeing the Hall of Armor.
    Loved seeing "Iron Patriot" as a running gag. War Machine rox...
    Loved seeing The Mandarin put Tony through his paces in the final action scenes.

    YES!!! I just wish it would have lasted longer. I loved that armor back in the day. This movie version reminded me of when John Byrne drew it on a few occasions...

    I appreciated Tony's panic attacks. I think many people on the planet would be completely stunned to suddendly learn that there were massive hostile alien lifeforms out there. To see figures like Loki and Thor would really be mind blowing.

    To suddendly know that nuclear weaponry is really nothing compared to portals and demi-gods would be mind blowing.

    The Mandarin was a relatively obscure character and was basically just propaganda against communist China. The film makers have had a hard time figuring out what to do with him from the start and the movie cleverly acknowledges this and makes a comment on how we make "boogie-men" to influence public opinions. Plus lets be real, despite being Iron Mans Arch Nemesis in the public eye he's not even a forth as popular as even anyone of Spider-Mans B List enemies.

    Thing I really enjoyed about the Avengers was how true it felt to the comics in certain regards. Like the scene where Loki is threatening the Hulk, I assumed they were going to have a fight that made it seem as if they were on the same level of power, but they quickly broke that cliche as we all know. One of my big concerns from this however was that directors and writers would no longer have room to deviate from source material and characters like Spider-Man 2's Doc Ock, would not exist in the MCU. This however showed they are still willing to allow creative freedom and from that respect the movie really impressed me.

    Aside from that the movie was:
    Fun
    Funny
    The internal conflict seemed real and not contrived like the stupid "I'm dying" in the previous installment


    You know people these days don't put nearly enough value on a good time and thats what I had watching this movie and what I'd expect for 13 bucks. Stop your complaining it was pretty good.

    I seem to recall it being established that Mandarin was NOT a communist - that the Chinese government feared him but maintained an uneasy alliance with him.
