SQM – Iron Man 3

images images3images2






Tony Stark is Iron Man and Iron Man is Tony Stark. That sums up the message behind Iron Man 3. I may be reaching here, but never has a character gone through such a transformation over three films as Mr. Tony Stark. The amazing thing about his transformation as a character is he’s likable at every stage.

This is what Tony Stark shows  you in Iron Man 3:

Tony Stark has heart:

“I had just created demons and didn’t even know it”

“Things are different now, I have to protect the one thing that I can’t live without. That’s you.”

“She was already perfect.”

Angry Tony Stark:

“You’re not a man. You’re nothing more than a maniac. I’m not afraid of you. No politics here: just good old fashioned revenge!”

Fight Scene One Liner Tony Stark:

“Hot wings you want to party?”

“Walked right into this one I’ve dates hotter chicks them you.”

“You like that,Westworld?”

“Walk away from that, you son of a bitch.”

Same old Tony Stark:

“Ladies follow the mullet.”

“It’s not superhero business.”

“It’s a big bunny relax about it.”

“I remember the night, not the morning.”

“You know, it’s moments like these when I realize how much of a superhero I am.”

“Dads leave. No need to be such a pussy about it.”

“I liked you in A Christmas Story.”

“Some people say progress is a bad thing. But try having a magnet in your chest keeping you alive.”

“That’s the thing about smart guys: we cover our asses!”

“Sweetheart, “a cheap trick and a cheesy one-liner” could be the name of my autobiography.”

“You are in a relationship with me, nothing is gonna be fine”

After New York Tony Stark:

“Ever since that big guy with the hammer fell out of the sky, subtlety’s kinda had its day.”

“I have a lot of apologies to make… Nothing’s been the same since New York. You experience things, and then they’re over. I can’t sleep, and when I do I have nightmares.”

Tony Stark: I’m sorry, did I disturb your selective napping?
Bruce Banner: I’m sorry, I’m not that kind of doctor. It’s not my department.
Tony Stark: Your training?
Bruce Banner: My temperament.

Have you seen it?  What did you think?

The Avengers Movie Quotes

Let me get my gushing out of the way and say that I loved this movie.  It was the great all American action movie.  With the right amount of witty clever dialogue, action sequences, robots, aliens, superheros and realism all wrapped up in a nice pretty CGI fueled package.

It has been awhile since a movie has pulled me in like this one did and that it is my favorite way to watch a movie.

I also have to take a moment to extol the greatness of Tony Stark.  I liked the first Ironman Movie. I loved the second Ironman Movie.  I am now ready to declare that Tony Stark as played by Robert Downey, Jr. is one of my top 5 favorite movie characters of all time.

He creates a suit that makes him into a super hero.  Out of the suit, he describes himself as  “Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.”  Brilliant!

The movie was amazing, the people where oh so pretty, but the diaglogue.  The dialogue made the movie.

First, let Tony Stark tell you who the Avengers are:

“Let’s do the head count here.  Your brother, the demigod; the super soldier, living legend who kind of lives up to the legend; a man with breathtaking anger management issues; a couple of master assassins and you, big fellow, you’ve manage to piss off every single one of them.” 

Some of the funniest lines he delivered was in putting down his fellow Avengers while reference other movies.

[to Thor] “No hard feelings Point Break, you’ve got a mean swing.”

(Thor does kind of looks like Patrick Swayze in the surfer bank robber movie)

[to Hawkeye] “Right. Better clench up, Legolas.”

(Referencing the gorgeous arrow slinging elf played by Orlando Bloom from the Lord of the Rings movies.)

Typically, I pin point single lines, but some much of what made this movie great is the interaction between the larger then life characters.

Like this conversation between Steve Rogers a.k.a Captain America (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark:

Steve Rogers:  “Stark, we need a plan of attack!”

Tony Stark:  “I have a plan. Attack!”

Or between Natasha Ramanoff a.k.a Black Widow (Scarlett Johansen) and Thor (Chris Heimsworth):

Thor:  “He’s my brother.”

Natasha Ramanoff: “He killed 80 people in 2 days.”

Thor:  “He’s adopted.”

And, how about this exchange between Steve Rogers and Clint Barton a.k.a Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner):

Steve Rogers: “You think you can hold them off?”

Clint Barton: “Captain, it would be my genuine pleasure.”

But, there was some really great one liners as well:

“You people are so petty, and tiny.” Thor

[to Loki] “Your gonna loose.  It’s in your nature.” Agent Coulsen

“You were made to be ruled.” Loki

“Where not a team. Where a time-bomb.” Bruce Banner a.k.a The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)

“Love is for children. I owe him a debt.” Black Widow

[to Tony Stark] “Your not the man to make the sacrifice

play.” Captain America

We must recognize that this little band of heros was put together by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).  “There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people, so when we need them, they could fight the battles that we never could.”

Not everyone was in favor of this idea, Nick Fury is going to stand up for what he believes in.

Delivered in true Samuel L. Jackson fashion, “I recognize the council has made a decision, but given that it’s a stupid ass decision, I’ve elected to ignore it.”

If you have seen it, tell me what you think?  If you haven’t seen it, go see it, and tell me what you think? Who was your favorite Avenger?  What are some of your favorite movie lines?  

I would like to recognize Marvel.com for the photos and IMDb for helpings me remember some of these great quotes.  I typically will type the quotes in my iPhone as I watch a movie, but I was way to end into this movie to take my eyes off the screen.    

My First Blog Award – The Versatile Blogger

That’s me.  I am so excited.  This just made my month and I want to thank karensdifferentcorners.wordpress.com for the honor.

This award came at the right time.  I was feeling a bit torn between doing this, which I love and doing what I am paid to do.  I could be happy just writing and blogging and all that entails.  But then again, I have to eat, too.  Receiving this award just reinforced my decision to try harder to find the balance between the two. Or, I could win the lottery or marry a rich man that’s an option, too. With that out of the way, it is time for me to fulfill my duties as a “The Versatile Blogger” award winner.

7 things  you probably don’t know about me:

  1. I have a law degree from Georgetown University Law Center, but I don’t practice law. I just can’t sit in a room for 12 hours a day looking at documents unless I actually wrote them.
  2. My favorite city in the world is London.  It is the first foreign country I ever went to and 16 countries later, it is still my favorite.
  3. I ran the Hong Kong 1/2 Marathon in 3 hours, 58 minutes and I really hate to run.  But, I did finish the 1/2 marathon and crossed the finish line at the same time as the winner of the full marathon. He did start two hour after me and ran twice as far, but we finished at the same time.  That’s how I like to tell the story.
  4. I have recently decided after seeing The Avengers that the character of Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey, Jr. is in my top 5 favorite characters of all time.  Other four:  Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean), Hans Solo (Star Wars), William Thacker (Notting Hill),  Maggie (the Cat) Pollitt (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof)
  5. I have a secret crush on Chef Michael Voltaggio, Luke Wessman (tattoo artist), Robert Downey, Jr., Ryan Gosling, and Troy Aikman.  Not so much a secret anymore.
  6. If I could live at home for a month and then in a new country for a month and alternate that for the rest of my live, I would be in bliss.
  7. I really want to compete on So You Think You Can Dance.  I am not a professional dancer, nor do I have any desire to be.  I just think it would be so fun to be on that show.
