Bored now

On the other hand, I’m sorry to say that Iron Man 2 was kind of boring (I literally fell asleep at one point)

The problem I had, I think, was the casting of Guy from Galaxy Quest as this movie’s Big Bad, which meant that I kept hearing Alan Rickman’s voice in my head saying “Well what does it want? What’s it’s motivation?” Honey, nobody in this film had any motivation. Causality, rationality, psychology? Nah – throw a car at it. Blow it up. Wouldn’t it be cute if…

I mean, why did the bad guy (the OTHER bad guy, Mickey Rourke) have electric whip thingies that could cut a car in half one minute, electrocute someone the next, but then… try to whip Iron Man and he’ll grab the whip and pull you down with it. Special effects fine, continuity, dodgy.

Next!
