Hey guys! Welcome to Cloudy’s Cinema! A category on the blog where we review movies, films and plays, anything to do with drama, stage or cinematic production. And now the first movie to be reviewed here is Iron Man 3! I went to see this with one of my guy friends and at the end of the movie he turned to me and asked, “5 out of 5 happy clouds?”
It was an epic moment.
… And then his car battery died and we got stranded outside the theater. (No joke)
BUT REGARDLESS, it was a great.
“Things are different now, I have to protect the one thing that I can’t live without. That’s you.” (Tony to Pepper)
The movie was capped from beginning to end with Tony Stark’s narratives which provided a lot of insight to Tony’s personality behind the “billionaire philanthropist playboy” demeanour of nonchalance. I loved the connection with Marvel’s previous film, The Avengers and the psychological aftermath as one of Stark’s personal obstacles as he continues as Iron Man.
BEWARE SOME SPOILERS BELOW!!
For starters, it’s interesting to see Tony on his own, especially in Tennessee when he’s hundreds of miles away from all his equipment without JARVIS as his butler/assistance. Even without all the little toys, Tony is still a force to be reckoned with, making use of the most mundane tools and materials found at the local hardware store. When he infiltrates the baddies’ Miami quarters, he looks more like a secret agent akin rather than a red and gold crime fighting hero, but it looks like he’s capable with or without the suit… and always has a trick up his sleeve. What’s even more badass is that during his late night technology escapades due to anxiety and insomnia, he’s developed several different versions of the Ironman suit which come in handy down the road…
Always a pleasure to see the recurring cast, especially Gwyneth Paltrow (recently voted world’s most beautiful woman) as Pepper Pots. She’s definitely one-of-a-kind, I mean; she has to be, to be Iron man’s leading lady. She truly loves Tony and despite being cool and collected on a regular, she is devastated when she’s at the site of their home and her newly-lit face full of hope when she puts on the helmet and hears Tony’s voice mail.
And she is probably the most kickass heroine to date in the Marvel series.
Much different from Scarlett Johansson’s character: Natalia Romanova/ the Black Widow from The Avengers who was introduced as a Russian spy trained in the art of interrogation and killing, When Tony’s backed into a corner by the main baddie, Aldrich Killian, Pepper steps out of the damsel-in-distress male-dominated world of superheroes to score a full ten out of ten for the females!
