    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I’m not really sure why this movie is taking such a beating. Even trying to look at the movie through super critical eyes, it’s nowhere close to being amongst the worst comic book movies ever made, let alone the worst of the X-Men movies. Yes, I can be overly optimistic when I watch movies, but you know what? Who cares. Life’s too short. So when a X-Men movie comes along that really hits the buttons I wanted pressed, then I’m…

    Easily the best of the Iron Man movies. From the comedy to the story to the action, this one nails it all. It's also a brilliant continuation of Tony's character arc in the MCU.
