Hubs and I did something this weekend we have not done in YEARS, actually we can’t even remember the last time we did it… went to the movies – just the two of us! I had the opportunity to watch Iron Man 3 in 3D thanks to my friend from Tales of a Rant Ginger and Subway Canada. Now you might be worried that this is the third Iron Man movie (plus there was the Advengers) is this movie actually going to be any good??? And the answer is YES! Iron Man 3 was an entertaining and funny movie!The Tony Stark wit and humour that I love so much was out in full force again in Iron Man 3. However this time around we also got to see more of the “human” side to Iron Man as well. I was happy to see a larger roll for Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. The visual affects were amazing. I enjoyed the look of the 3D movie, but hate wearing the glasses. I would note that this movie is rate PG, but I would say children need to be at least 10+ to go watch it, there were a couple of graphic elements that are not for kids. Although Hubs and I can have very different tastes in movies, we both thoroughly enjoyed Iron Man 3. And as with all Marvel movies, it is worth watching the credits 🙂
If you are looking for a perfect story where everything is all tied up in a bow, then Iron Man 3 is not for you. There are still some questions to be answered, and you need to take a leap of faith with some of the plot, but it is a super hero movie after all… some reality needs to be suspended. I am really glad we made the trip to the movie theater to watch Iron Man 3, we had a fun night out just as a couple. Now that we are into the “month of movies” I am looking forward to planning our next date night!
