|Title:||Iron Man 2|
|11.14.10||Netflix|| Eh... So in hindsight, I realize that the reason why Iron Man 2 worked was that it was not silly like most other comic book movies. The characters were smart and the conflict was not so epic and the Jeff Bridges' antagonist was surprisingly cerebral. All of these things became painfully clear as I watched this sequel, which succumbs to most if not all tropes that make most comic book movies forgettable.|
Too many characters, too many robots, too many things going on, and way too silly. I also have no clue what the new mexico thing is and suspect i'll have to see Thor or The Avengers or any number of other Marvel movies to understand. This creates a weird mixture of emotions for me (see my RED notes for details).
So... pretty forgettable.
