Wong Kar Wai...the grandmaster of "artistic" films. The first time I watched Chungking Express, I slept halfway. Could only remember Faye Wong dancing behind the counter., and Tony Leung talking to his face towel and an orange... :?

Dunno what the whole thing was about.

Why the heck did he choose Tony Leung for a kungfu movie? The point of a kungfu movie is the fight scenes, not so much the acting.


Yar man, it's totally horrible.

If Nicholas Cage is Superman.

This is real though, he was once considered for the role before Brandon Routh was chosen.

I agreed. Maybe he have to wear a wig with the "S" hair on forehead, otherwise ppl will see "M" instead.

REVIEW of sorts without much spoiler Iron Man: Rise of Technovore
Image

Involves the following establish Marvel characters:
1. Tony Stark
2. James Rhodes (Rhodey)
3. Punisher
4. Black Widow
5. Hawkeye
6. Nick Fury
7. Maria Hill
8. Pepper Potts
9. Obadiah Stane (more like ghost).
Main villian:
10. Ezekiel "Zeke" Stane (Obadiah's son)

Related to the MovieVerse of Marvel Studios mainly related to IM1 and less on IM2. If it's within the movie verse... I'll put it some-what after IM2 but before the Avengers. Non-movie related Marks but some-what IM2 inspired armors for Tony's armor and WarMachine. A few nice bot vs bot action sequences, Story is somewhat disjointed.... pace is somewhat similar to other MadHouse production animation. I feel people dies far too frequently/indiscreetly for the non-main characters (of 1 to 8, and 10 as stated above). Technovore... Something like the Techno-Organic virus of Warlock (infecting Cable) of the Marvel verse. Perhaps less so, like the Extremist virus plot of IM3.

Iron Man 3 review from a scientific perspective:

high-light for spoiler:
Overall of the science or pseudo science of the movie:
The science of IM3 is disjointed, while IM1, IM2 and Avengers touch one particular notion of science (mainly physics and mechanics) and expand on it, IM3's sciences tries to connect all these branches of science namely genetics (plant and human), nanotech (not specific), neurology (related to genetics, but in this case: brain structure), physics (energy/heat) without any logical linkage.

While you may use the Extremist (take the essence) story-line, you can ground it with logical (current) science. If large liberties are taken with the Mandarin, why not "ground" the Science as well.

Biology
1. Lost limbs are healed quickly, fine (as ridiculous as a nameless mutant on X-Men3 or Amazing Spiderman's cicak), why does scarring on the face of Brandt still remains.
2. Changing of DNA, that enables A) Regeneration of body parts. B) Produce heat and C) Survice the heat generated beyond any living lifeforms. Whatever protective protein that an organism can generate is still based on organic compounds that are not able to withstand heat able to melt metal. Too many functions of convenience. Extremis comics I believe did not go to such "extreme", human bomb and heat.
3. While vetebrates have a neurosystem, plants do not, lets just say the relation in which both are essentially bombs are due to DNA. Which bring to a point: slot's in the brain does not keep the blue-print, but your Genomic DNA does. Why the brain relation (apart from the excuse of hologram for Killian and Potts). Black and Pierce essentially took what's wrong with Extremis virus notion, throw out what's logical and incorporated new stuff that's illogical.
4. Healing of bullet holes on the extremis soldier, sure the flesh heals but the fabric don't.


My Nic-picks, less on science, more on story
1. While Mk. 1-6 are powered by the ArcReactor, Mk. 7 of Avengers might be. All other Mark's appears to have self-container power sources. Mk.42 however appears to run on rechargeble batteries. As genius as Tony is why does he not have to foresight to utilise the power on his chest, and rely on what appears to be charged by power-mains from the garage or boat. Fine, it's a prototype excuse.
2. IM3 is almost all on the Man, little to no emphasis on the armors except for just a little on Mk.42. No cools hologram on design of armors.
3. Other than Mk. 42, I believe Tony put on maybe only 3 or 4 other armors. There rest are mostly just eye candy and fireworks.
4. IM, IM2, Avengers all kept the legacy of previous armors, shows a continuity. Starting all from a clean slate after IM3 kind of reduce the significants of all previous movies. Why thrown the triangle reactor, it's his, his father and Vanko's legacy, big plot points of IM2 and Avengers.

What's good
Action sequences showing Tony's "kung-fu" with the armor and partial armor.

[end of spoiler]
