Iron Man 3

It was great but honestly there were no real epic scenes for me and some of the lines weren't delivered as well as they could have been. But otherwise it was great and I'll probably be seeing it again with my family! :)

I was expecting a let down with this but it actually turned out to be pretty amazing. WATCH IT.

The whole time I was thinking DON'T YOU SEE THAT SHE'S FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU?? *facepalm* Other than that I think the movie didn't really know what it wanted to be. Sometimes it was a bit funny, sometimes it was sad, sometimes it was dramatic, sometimes it was artsy... It was all over the place. It wasn't bad enough to be 1 star but it was pretty bad.

I found it pretty boring. Nothing was really funny or scary it was just meh the whole way through. The only saving grace was the weird girl and her cat, Mr Whiskers.

**POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD** Catwoman undermines the 'realism' that this franchise was after, but she was not enough to destroy the film altogether. What do those ears even do? How does she know how to drive the batpod? How is she wearing those shoes? That outfit? Really?! Other than that, the only annoying part of the film was that there was nothing hugely amazing or memorable... Yes, the explosions were awesome and the music was brilliant and the story was solid, but I couldn't help but forget it all afterwards. What single point in the film made my spine tingle? Nothing. In Batman Begins I distinctly remember the chase sequence when the tumbler goes stealth and the cops lose him only to re-emerge from the darkness. That was great. Every scene of The Dark Knight with Heath Ledger is memorable. 'I'm gonna make this pencil disappear' He. Made. That. Movie. But in Rises, nothing. I'd say the most memorable character in the film was (annoyingly) Catwoman, and the most memorable scenes were in the trailers. ...but I say all this with a sore ass from sitting on those old, rigid Savoy seats. I'm sure if I saw it again I'd have nothing bad to say about any of it. Hence 5 stars.

Better than I thought it was going to be.

So un-scary it was funny. And Radcliff was unbelievable as a father of a toddler. And who made the genius decision to cast giants in all the supporting roles?! Poor Danny...

I liked the story and I liked the characters but there was something about the camera work that put me off- it was really jolty..

Great film. No doubt I'll be getting it on dvd to watch on rainy days. Only downfall (or is it a downfall?) is that it felt like an old monster movie. It had a nice retro feel to it and I loved it but I can't give it the five stars. Four and a half then.

It had it's moments but as a whole it wasn't as funny or as heart-wrenching as it could have been. Ben Barnes can't act. I think he would make a great career as a porn star. The rest of the cast was ace though, especially Robert Sheehan.

Portman was perfect.
