I've used Rotten Tomatoes for years, but wait before you just go with the first numbers you see there.  They're almost always low because they're the ratings by critics.  If you want to know what 'normal folk' think, just click over to see what the "RT Community" says, which will give you a much better idea of what the general word of mouth is for a film.

As an example with IM2, right now the T-Meter Critics give it a 65%, but the RT Community gives it an 84%.

This is what happens when you force creative thinking, you get something that isn't as good as it could've been had you given the director and the writers free reign. Marvel has to push for sequels in two years time, so they can squeeze every drop out of their franchises. Just look at Spider-man and how they trainwrecked that one, I know IM2 will be fun to watch, but I hold no reservations that it won't be anywhere near as good as the first one.

DC wins this one without even having the Bat out until 2012, why? Because patience is a virtue, there is a reason why the second Bat film was better than the first because Nolan got free reign to be as creative as he wanted to be and wasn't held to ridiculous deadlines. Even now, he knew that he wouldn't do the third film unless it had the right script and was feasible, it's an integrity issue, he doesn't want to put his name on something he knows won't be as good and Warner Bros/DC respects it.

I'm not saying Faverau is a bad director, I thought he was a great choice for Iron Man, however Marvel bullied him right out the gate after the first one released. They tried to low-balling him and if he wasn't going to come back they knew could replace him with some scrub director like Louis Leterrier and still rack in the coin.

It really is unforunate circumstances because in the end, the only people that get cheated are us. We get a lesser product, while Marvel basks in the fanboys' money.

I say let's wait and see how Iron Man 2 is.  I still trust that Favreau will do a fantastic job; it may not be quite as good as the first one, but some parts of it might be better!  Spider-Man and X-Men both had better movies the second time around.

From the clips I've seen of this one, I think it will be as cool and well done as the first film!

Why does Ferris Aircraft look like a California High School?

I enjoyed Iron Man 2, in a lot of ways it's a bridge/set up story. But the action was there, lots of fighting, things blowing up, and things moving very fast. Great sense of humor and lots of fun things for the comic nerd in all of us to enjoy. I give it a solid A and it opens so many doors to the Marvel future and I can't wait to look inside.

I don't give a crap about reviews either.  Iron man 2 is required viewing for manics I decree by end of weekend.  Those not in complience will be punished, maybe by the Punisher!
