…It Did Not Suck. Pretty good, in fact: not the Crystallized Awesome that was the first film, but the Stark/Pepper dynamic was still there – and (call me a heretic) I liked Cheadle better as Rhodie. More heroic engineering, and more of the laws of theoretical physics being waved to as they are passed by at high speed. I’m not exactly sure what the heck Black Widow was doing in this one (besides the obvious), and I’m not sure what they plan to do for an encore… but I didn’t mind shelling out regular price for this.
In other news: who the HELL decided that Grown Ups (starring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, Rob Schneider and David Spade) deserved to be on the big screen, yet we can’t have a sequel to Serenity? Doesn’t doing that much cocaine send your brains igniting out of your ears, anyway?
