Iron Man: Rise of the Technovore

IMRoT1

Iron Man is framed by a technological terrorist and breaks out to clear his name.

IMRoT2

This movie from Marvel brings in the usual characters you know from the Iron Man Universe. War Machine is also thrown into the mix of this movie and I really liked how both Iron Man & War Machine were portrayed. Then there is Shield, with it Nick Fury, Black Widow, and Hawkeye, the perfect mix into this movie and they were some very fun characters. The story line is interesting and ties into Iron Man’s past and the animation is fantastic, I loved the Japanese Animation and Modern CGI Hybrid that they are doing these days. It’s an action packed story with Tony Stark following the leads wherever it takes him, fun on every level.

The IRON MAN Suit!

IM3LSF1

Owning the Iron Man suit is something on every man’s mind, well its always on my mind. In this case you can have it, but it isn’t the indestructible armor that Tony Stark built for Billions. Sideshow Collectibles have built a 7 foot tall lift size stunning high-gloss automotive painted replica of the armor worn by Tony Stark in Iron Man 3. The Iron Man Mark 42, you definitely get to enjoy LED light-up eyes, arc reactor, palm repulser, and display base. The real thing must cost Billions to build but you can have this one for only $8’500.

Review: IRON MAN 3

IronMan31

When Tony Stark’s world is torn apart by a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin, he starts an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution.

IronMan32

People weren’t sure what to expect with this movie, the trailers looked good, but I was very excited, they took a different route then what I expected. As usual Robert Downey Jr. played the role perfectly, even better this time around, you feel like Tony Stark isn’t just the man in the suit, he is Iron Man and this time he has a formidable enemy. Ben Kingsley played his character fantastically with a huge surprise honestly, something I was expecting that I loved, it just made the twist even more, lets say interesting, and this added to the flavor of the movie. I don’t want to mention any spoilers so just watch it, but know the last fight scene got me so excited that I was jumping out of my seat, it was insane and over the top and I loved it. Honestly this movie was better then the original Iron Man that everyone loved. I watched it uncut and some scenes will be cut and it would ruin it a bit since there is a part with the bad guys that involves that twist I mentioned that spices things up.

Review: Iron Man – Anime

Plot Summary: Tony Stark is a physicist, an engineer, and the CEO of a major arms manufacturing company. On a battlefield he is injured from his own weapons and taken prisoner by terrorists. In order to keep his own heart beating, he creates the Ironman Suit and escapes. Once free, Stark decides to dedicate his life to pursuing world peace with the Ironman technology, so he moves to Japan to use the resources of “Lab 23,” home of the world’s first Arc Reactor. Wanting to devote himself fully to this research, Stark decides to retire as Ironman and announce the mass-production of suits to fulfill his duties. But at the announcement ceremony he is attacked by the mysterious organization known as “Zodiac,” and his plans have to change.

Iron Man is one the best characters out of Marvel at this moment and Marvel have taken their best step yet to turn it into an Anime. Its the first to be done for a show to go from American origins to Japanese Animation, most of the time it goes from Japanese to American cartoons. And I think they did a fantastic job with Iron Man, loved the characters and all the robots and how they made Tony Stark in the Anime. I flew through the 12 episodes and wanted a lot more, they made it a darker story in the Anime and that is one of the best qualities of it, there is an enemy in the background and it gets interesting. I can’t wait for more Marvel Anime shows!

Iron Man 2 – Trailer

IronMan2

The Iron Man 2 trailer 2 is out and it doesn’t disappoint, more bullets, more explosions, more Iron Man. You get a bit more of the story, you get to see Don Cheadle as War Machine. You get to see the cocky Tony Stark as he is pubicly Iron Man. I seriously can’t wait to see this movie only two months left and it just keeps getting better and better. I like that small clip with Samual L. Jackson, some how S.H.I.E.L.D is going to play a bigger role, which is going to lead to another movie, this just gets better and better.

Iron Man: Armored Adventures

With the success of Iron Man, Marvel Studios has followed up with an Iron Man animated show called Iron Man: Armored Adventures. In this case they take the younger version of Tony Stark the genius and go through how he developed all the different version of the suit and it’s purposes, as this monstrosity called the Dynamobuster which is meant to destroy all that is in it’s path. Then the other versions for deep space travel, atmospheric flight and battle, the other version is a stealth suit meant to penetrate all kinds of surveillance and security. This is looking to be a very fun show, the animation and CGI quality is very good so they haven’t ruined it as I would have expected, its a bit of kid’s story line but still very entertaining and I have just seen a few episodes.

When his industrialist father Howard Stark disappears in a plane crash after refusing to weaponize the Earth Mover at Obadiah Stane’s behest, 16 year old genius Tony uses a high-tech suit of armor he has constructed and investigates a charge that Stane may have been involved in his father’s death. As Iron Man, Tony spends his time stopping Stane’s plans and saving the world from other villains such as Mandarin, Mr. Fix, Whiplash, A.I.M., Madame Masque, Living Laser, the Maggia, Firebrand, Controller, Crimson Dynamo, Blizzard, Killer Shrike, Unicorn, M.O.D.O.K., Ghost, Fin Fang Foom, Black Knight, and Technovore. He is assisted in his crime fighting efforts with help from James Rhodes and Pepper Potts. Tony’s activities as Iron Man usually result in his needing to make up excuses as to why he is constantly late or missing from school and other activities. Now dependent on his phenomenal technology for survival, Tony must balance the pressures of teenage life with the duties of being a super hero.

Review: Ironman

This movie is everything it promised and more, I have been waiting over a year to see this movie and it was well worth it. I have been a fan of Ironman from the early 90s reading the Marvel comics, he was a superhero you feel you could reach since he was human and developed the technology to able to fight.

I was afraid when I heard Robert Downey Jr. was chosen as Tony Stark, in the comics Tony Stark was this genius who was also troubled, always trying to help and push himself to his limit, he is a solitary man with two lives. Robert Downey Jr. did an amazing job playing Tony Stark, he gave a certain flare to Tony’s darkness which I thought was excellent. The movie was executed perfectly, there was a perfect mix of special effects, it wasn’t overboard. The movie was perfect, you are satisfied with the movie and enjoyed it, but you are left wanting more. Stay after the credits there is a surprise which isn’t to be missed, can’t wait for the next Ironman.
