FMP Ep. 064 – ‘Iron Man 3’ / Paul Laverty Interview

Iron Man 3 Podcast Review (2013)

Alex and Phil jump into the Summer movie season with a review of Iron Man 3 and since it is a Marvel franchise film, they naturally disagree. In the intermission, they discuss Leonardo DiCaprio’s best performances in anticipation of the Baz Luhrmann themed podcast next week. Alex also had the opportunity to interview screenwriter of the Palme d’Or winning film The Wind that Shakes the Barley Paul Laverty about his newest film The Angels’ Share. Listen to the interview in the second half of the episode.

    titanic duh. omg leo

  • I’m caught between Phil and Alex on “Iron Man 3”, because the superhero trappings are still unnecessary and repetitive, but I think some of the dialogue does ring as genuinely amusing. If only it weren’t so confused as to whether it were a darker dramatic effort or a jaunty comic book adventure.

    I believe “Gatsby” may honestly be DiCaprio’s best performance to date, portraying a character whose charms do not instantly align him with the audience, but operate as a push-pull mechanism that has you both spellbound and questioning his intentions. Before that, I’d have instantly said “Catch Me If You Can”, where his bright young empathy and fierce emotionality had their most effective fusion.

    • Oh, and for a second I forgot about “Revolutionary Road”. Truly riveting performance of such raw emotion. I love DiCaprio when he get crazy loud and violent.

  • I definitely think DiCaprio was superb in The Aviator! Superb performance.
