And I thought I was the pessimistic one (chuckles)

I"m not disagreeing with you.  People do leave, do die, etc.  Life is an illusion of how we perceive it.  In his mind, Pepper is the one thing he can count on.  And if he loses that, he loses his grip on his life.  In his mind, having those suits does give him more power.  He's seen what there is out there and he needs to feel like he's the one on top, and to do that he creates his Army.

We do everything we can to keep the status quo.  If that means going over the top to protect it, then that's what we do..

I've heard nothing but great things about this movie.  Looking forward the the finale, well until he comes back in Avengers 2.  As for this scene, its nice, but out of context I wasn't feeling it.

@ All Maniacs - There are no real spoilers here folks, only my humble opinions, but for you who want to know absolutely nothing about this movie - STAY AWAY!!!!!

I didn't really have any expectations for "IM3" which is normally a good starting point for enjoying a more objective viewing experience. The only thing that did get my hopes up a little was the fact it's penned and directed by Shane Black, who is one of my all time favorite action screenwriters (Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout & Kiss Kiss Bang Bang). And while "IM3" certainly has many of the trademarks of a classic SB movie, I found the script to be slightly lacking compared to his strongest efforts.

"Iron Man 3" is still a good entertaining movie though and my only REALLY BIG gripes are 1) its length and 2) the continued use of sub-par comedy relief which was introduced already in "IM2". Sure I had a couple of good laughs throughout the movie, but the awkward moments were a few too many to let me rate this any higher than 3,5 out of 5. Both "Iron Man" and "The Avengers" offered a much wittier sense/tone of humor, while also managing to steer 100% clear of filler slapstick and overly cartoony characterisations (Think J. Jonah Jameson in "Spiderman" and a bunch of characters in "IM2" whose names and purpose I don't even remember). Why Black isn't sticking with the same humoristic formula that worked so well in these superior prequels is really beyond me.

Final Verdict - Despite the extensive running time, some filler characters/scenes and some severely backfiring attempts at comedy, "IM3" still outdoes the lackluster "Captain America" by a whole point, while litterally kicking "IM2" into orbit around its own ass.

The list of best "Avengers" movies so far is: 1) The Avengers, 2) Iron Man, 3) Thor, 4) Iron Man 3, 5) Captain America, 6) Iron Man 2

I'm not including "The Incredible Hulk" because of the radical changes in tone and feel after the introduction of Mark Ruffalo and the new CGI Hulk. They were both huge improvements in my opinion and should easily make a new Hulk movie the number one priority for Marvel after wrapping up Avengers 2. While I know this isn't gonna happen anytime soon all we really need is a snow-covered landscape, a small log cabin, a spiritual journey and a Wendigo. End credits are followed by the introduction of "The Leader" and all will be good.

Last but not least I do believe that Robert Downey Jr has been in the spotlight just a little too much in the last couple of years. Don't get me wrong, RD is one of my top 5 favorite actors of all time, but I really would have liked Marvel to give us at least 2 years inbetween his movies (also counting The Avengers) to actually create some fresh new demand. He's truly become too much of a good thing lately which is a real shame for such a brilliant talent
