People talk about it all the time, but how exactly does a movie adaptation “surpass” or be “better than” a book? They are two different mediums which have their respective rules of writing. Movies are a more restricted art of story telling in that it’s only one person’s vision. Books are so open to interpretation that no two people will have the same vision, so of course it is going to disappoint. Looking back, I was pleasantly surprised with how much I took away, in terms of this story’s morals. Hopefully one day people will be more open to other people’s interpretations.

At this point, I’m just hoping that Walt hasn’t died of old age.

I agree that Black gives IM3 a “very different feel.” However, I disagree with you when you talk about how “human” the Mandarin is. Not only does he alter his DNA to give him super powers, hence making him SUPER human, but he is also a complete sociopath who is fine with murdering countless of innocent people. I would consider this to be quite INhuman. I guess it goes without saying that there was never a moment in my mind where I empathized with the Mandarin. I will address this and other issues with Black’s ill-directed ‘Iron Man’ sequel in my upcoming review.

I am glad to see I have a partner in crime in terms of writing about slasher flicks! It’s especially interesting to hear (read?) things from the perspective of a female, seeing is how these slasher flicks both revolve around and subject women. I look forward to reading more of your work, Sonia! 😀

Well, I disagree with your point of her sexuality. It’s still pretty bad :p And I am not claiming that Arkham “invented” those mechanics. At least, not intentionally. I was going more for: “Those mechanics have become more prevalent lately and Arkham is definitely a forerunner for bringing it to our attention.” I should have been more clear, my bad.
