So this is basically a copy/paste from tumblr, where I have talked in the tags of various posts about things, so this isn't a complete picture of my thought. It's very close though, but it is stream of thought, and so terribly late. It's also 3.5k long.
I love the fact that in the first five minutes, they made us love Sam. I was expecting that scene to come after the ship scene, but no, it was first. (A lot of the war-related trauma and RSA (or whatever the American version is called) went over my head, except for the fact that war is a terrible thing and they both experienced it.) And they just lead in with how Sam has a sense of humour and is understanding and valiant and compassionate.
He's a pretty good 'foil' for Steve too, because his quest for righteousness in the world, while on a smaller level, starts with the personal rather than the national/global. I really want to see what he thinks about Steve's quest to find (and rehabilitate) Bucky, because while that is a personal scale motive, Sam isn't going to be concentrating on Bucky, he's going to be focused on Steve and how it's affecting him.
And a note about this being set in DC: I watch Bones, it's set in DC, there's lots of semi-romantic stuff with the cenotaph/memorial in the distance and the reflecting pool and the Lincoln thing. Plus I watched X-men: First Class and the very subtext laden chess game on those steps RIGHT WHERE THE CAMERA WAS FOR STEVE AND SAM RUNNING.
Basically a ton of stuff I've watched associates that shot of staring down the pool at the memorial with establishing relationships and reaffirming them. Maybe it's the only place film crew are allowed to shoot from, but that shot definitely went a long way to establishing Sam/Steve as a valid ship for me.
Natasha sharing most of the funny lines with Sam was lovely )

So! Commentary for Iron Man 2 ahead!

There's not going to be much after thoughts )

So, mostly I have nothing really to say. Except that I would love to see more of Natasha undercover and whether she did any other assessments for the Avengers initiative. And more of the day to day stuff that happened between Tony signing over CEO to Pepper and his birthday party. (Also the ~year between this and Avengers means that movie took place very close to his birthday, right? IM3 took place like six months after the Avengers.)


And I didn't know Laurence Fox was married to Billie Piper until I tried to look up videos of him speaking in Lewis and a great deal of his music and marriage to her popped up.

So I saw Iron Man 3, and I had gotten up my hopes ridiculously high last night about Wanda and Pietro and the Runaways and the Pride. Hopes which weren't filled and I'm sorry to the people sitting behind me and my friends if my babbling about Runaways got on your nerves, but tough - you should like it anyway. (I had gotten my hopes up because the Pride is obviously a threat that SHIELD is monitoring and Malibu is in LA. I think? I get Florida and California mixed up and I was surprised that New York state borders Canada, so don't look at me for American geography lessons. Knowing Washington state and Washington DC are separate is about as complex as I get.)

Anyway, spoilers underneath.

There was... )

I'm just rambling on in a fragmented manner now. )
BTW, I figure that about 1/6th of the people in the cinema I was in stayed for the credits and that seemed to be equally spread between male and female.
