Iron Man 3 ★★★½

I actually quite like this movie, Shane Black does bring something new and different from a writing perspective but as we have seen from this and Predator, his approach to directing blockbusters is rather generic and not nearly as interesting as the way he tackles the smaller stories like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and the Nice Guys.

I liked the Mandarin Twist and almost every story decision and even Brian Tyler's score (one of the stronger MCU scores from the composer of some of the most generic shit) but the overall piece could have been more outstanding.
