In Australia, Iron Man 3 came out on the 24th of…ready for it? APRIL. Yes, we had it several weeks earlier than most other countries (coughUSAcough). Due to that stunning fact, we feel we have the right to
gloat share with you our screaming intelligent thoughts on the movie.
No spoilers! We’d love you to join in the discussion in the comments section, but don’t spoil the ending, okay?!
MIME: Bahhh! What an ANZAC Day that was. Playing in the band and going to see Iron Man 3. Which was amazing, by the way.
CAIT: Best parts? The giant rabbit.
MIME: You are annoying sometimes, but yes, the giant rabbit was pretty funny. This is making no sense to our blogglings, dear, so say something intelligent.
CAIT: IRONMAN BOUGHT PEPPER A GIANT RABBIT AND IT WAS SO SWEET!
MIME: Yeah. I did say ‘intelligent’ but that’s beside the point. So, in a nutshell, the movie was everything we were hoping for. In fact, it was actually more X-Men-y than most of the other Avengers’ films.
CAIT: I love X-Men.
MIME: Yeah. Mutants, guns, and fire. Cait’s opinion of a perfect film.
CAIT: Anything Avengers is a perfect film, come on. But we’re in danger of
fangirling talking irrationally so, something of substance? Usually, when a movie gets to number 3, it either gets drastically worse — or extremely funny. Take Toy Story 3 for instance.
MIME: Since when where we talking about Toy Story? We’re talking about Tony Story if that helps actually. But on your wave length, Toy Story 3 was pretty funny.
CAIT: Let’s not talk about Ice Age 4 though. My. Gosh. That was bad.
MIME: Stop bringing up bad memories. Let’s get back to the Avengers, you giant rabbit.
CAIT: Behave, miss. I know where you live.
MIME: “There is only so much I can do when you give the world’s media your home address…” I love JARVIS. Arguably, JARVIS is one of the best characters in the movie.
CAIT: I won’t argue.
MIME: You’re so dysfunctional.
CAIT: Not to change the subject or anything, but talk about down-right hilarious. The entire cinema cracked up multiple times! Mind you, I laughed the most. I was laughing when no one else was laughing (it’s my default way to release nervous tension).
MIME: You do not want to sit next to Cait at the movies. But how could anyone go to that movie and not laugh? I mean, it starred a barrel of monkeys, an over-protective security guard, Sarah Bardon (from the Prestige) and a kid who has a ‘connection’ with Ironman? Bah. Hilarious.
CAIT: Plus, I was crunching a very noisy apple during the movie. That guy kept looking back at us. Weird. As if apple is louder than popcorn.
MIME: Yeah. Talk about human giraffe. But did I mention that it’s annoying sitting next to Cait at the cinema? My claim was just concreted. Okay, okay. I’m just kidding. I had to have someone to help me convince the whole party to stay for the end credits scene.
CAIT: What can I say? IT’S MARVEL!!!
MIME: Coming from the girl who wears a D.C. Comics T shirt? Ahem.
CAIT: $3 bargin at the op-shop (thrift store). I love superheroes!
MIME: Geek. Can we get back to the movie, please?
CAIT: Okay, the dialogue? Funny. As. Ever. I mean, you’d think Ironman might lose his (gasp) funniness after 4 movies, but no way. The script was hilarious. From the giant rabbit (as previously mentioned), to the suit’s new capabilities (ouch) and then Pepper. Pepper was just perfect.
MIME: And the ending is enough to leave you gasping HOWCOULDYOULETTHISHAPPEN?! Which is fun, too.
CAIT: No spoilers…no spoilers…. I also really loved how the movie spun off Captain America’s comment in The Avengers, “Take away the suit and what are you?” Ironman spent a loooot of time out of his suit, which made the movie so different to all the others.
CAIT: THE BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!
MIME: Cait’s been watching too much Tangled, I see. Anyway. Like she said. Brilliant.
CAIT: And how do we know that? We have a connection.
MIME: Go to your tent!
