This Summer, the Conclusion of the Epic Trilogy: Um, "Hangover III"

They do actually sell it that way-- the conclusion to the Epic Trilogy. I don't think they're being ironic.

Just as Return of the Jedi returned to the first episode's main location -- the Death Star -- so the Wolf Pack shall return to Las Vegas.

I don't know. I didn't like Hangover, gave Hangover II a very positive review which definitely looks dumb in retrospect. Hangover II's stock-in-trade was Ultimate Shock; it doesn't hold up on a second viewing, now that the shock factor is gone.

What can I say? I was maybe over-impressed that they did something I didn't expect: they actually shocked and horrified me.

I suppose I will wearily see this one, just as I will wearily see "The Hobbit II: Gondor-A-Go-Go."

Whatever. Gotta complete the trilogy. All nerds have that Completist tic that corporations so ruthlessly exploit.

And: Iron Man 3, too. Though no one's promising a "conclusion."

I rooted for four years for the Avengers movie. And it was good. And it was something that hadn't been done before. So it was neat.

But now... eh.... another Tony Stark movie? Okay I guess but... I dunno.

To mimic the team dynamic of The Avengers, apparently Tony Stark's given an Iron Man suit to every one he knows, and all of his employees. Rhodey's even wearing Captain America-style armor.

There are literally 20 or 30 of them on the screen at the end. It's like the Green Lantern Corps. They even have their own Kilowog.
