I've never understood the hate for Iron Man 3 either.  Much more fun than the second one, which itself wasn't horrible.

That's go you liked it. I find it a letdown after the exciting buildup we were getting one of the classic Iron Man villains to take him on, but in a modernized portrayal as a terrorist. It would have been great to see.

But at least we got 'Hail to the King' as a Marvel One-Shot.

:roflmao:Indeed. That bait and switch really killed off a few brain cells in people who couldn't afford to lose any more.

So if someone didn't appreciate Iron Man III, they are less smart than those that did? You've come a long ways, baby.

:insane:

I stand by Iron Man 3, just as I stand by *almost* every Shane Black film.

But it was *extra* sweet to hear the lamentations of fanboys when Mandarin was revealed to be Killian.

Umm...And Liam Neeson / Ducard was Ra's, fools.

Equal misdirection -- and whitewashing of Asian villains to boot.

Tricking people with questions. Rejoicing when people are disappointed with a movie portrayal. You are just knocking them out of the park, Gatsby.

But for someone that also claims to want traditional source portrayal (selectively), I would assume you can relate some to those that just wanted to see the traditional Mandarin brought forward at that stage. Especially since he came from the early days of Iron Man, it would have been fun.

I didn't like the twist. That doesn't mean I sit grumbling over it. So I hate to disappoint you. But it was a letdown when wanting that traditional portrayal with the modification being a modern-day terrorist. Could have been cool.

If that's what you've deduced from one sentence, I can't help you, baby.

It was a very silly statement, very clearly stated. :foryou:

Even in the Apocalypse film, to me, he was a high point. Again.

 

Never saw the movie, how did quicksilver know a bomb was going off?

He didn't. He just happened to be strolling by Xavier's mansion. :roflmao:

Apocalypse is such a bad movie.

I saw the movie, but I don't recall more info being available to him about the bomb other than what you can see in the video.  I don't fully get how he knew, either, other than he was running super-fast to get to the mansion and somehow realized the bomb was going off when he got there.  Maybe he heard it?

I guess this better-answers the question. I was thinking, "how did Quicksilver know to go there because a bomb was going off?"

He would see the bomb go off before he would hear it, though.

Either way - I am so freaking ashamed that this was how they adapted the Apocalypse character/story. It's so bad. So sad.

How would he have heard it?  It was underground and he was wearing headphones.

how did Quicksilver know there was a problem when the explosion's force had not gone beyond the tunnel?

Quote

You can hear the 'woosh' sound when he drops the Twinkie. QS was already moving fast at the time and so reacted before anyone else.

He can see the explosion. Look closely to the left side of the building(the spot i have marked) . You can see lights there. That's the explosion.

No Predator :whatthe:

Predator should have ended after the 1st film. I hope they just stop making them. The last one which I refused to pay to see but did end up watching made me sick. All the others aucked as well including predator 2 don't get me started lol. 

Alien franchise has at least done decent ones after the 1st 2. Promtheus and the latest one were ok.

Predators at least was a good movie. That and the first film are definitely worth watching.

If they reference the source material, there are some good stories in all those mini series.

Will always be one the coolest scenes in any superhero movie. I would loved to have seen a solo QS film!
