Iron Man 3 (2013)

Iron Man 3I am nearing middle age, (some may argue that I have already arrived) have read no more than a dozen comics (not a single one being  a Marvel) and I have never been a fan of summer blockbusters.

Now I would love to follow that opening statement with a glowing endorsement of Iron Man 3, but I can not. What I can do is tell you the score.

I had the opportunity to screen this at a large theater packed with a few hundred of the people who helped make it. In sitting up front as I always do, I was hyper aware that any groaning, head shakes or overt eye rolls might be detected by those talented people behind me. That being said, I took note each time I began to do one of those things as a result of something off putting on the screen before me. The count was 7. Caught my self shaking my head or throwing it back in anger 7 separate times. Each time I was able to recover and turn the motion into a shoulder roll as though I was having neck pain so as not to be detected as a jerk at their screening, or at least I hope. The 3D glasses helped with this ruse as I was constantly fumbling with them throughout, as I always do. (more…)
