Any movie can be analysed and nitpicked to death if you want to. It's easy. Purpose of any movie is for entertainment and enjoyment , if you don't enjoy it , you don't enjoy it , no big deal really.
Same as your assertion that the establishing shots of the control room of the heli-carrier were unnecessary and too long. That is your opinion of the scene. For others it was a quick and necessary setup for just how many people and controls it takes to fly the heli-carrier. It was nothing compared to the 5 minute fly around the Enterprise in Star Trek: TMP. THAT was unnecessary and overly long.
No, that's a fact. The movie is too long as is, and a little cut would have made that whole sequence work better; so it's win win all around...especially since that scene looked bad anyways. They could have just shown how many people were on the bridge the next time we see the brige, which is right after that whole takeoff scene...but I don't feel like talking about this.
...I liked it...?
Pull List; seems to be too long to fit in my sig...
I thought Loki's cepter didnīt work on Stark because of the device he has in his heart...
That too is possible. That's the thing. No movie has to spoon feed every explanation to the viewers. Many leave things open to interpretation. Is this a plot hole? No. It is a small piece of a larger film that the screen writers, producers and the director didn't feel they needed to waste time explaining.

The thing that bugged me the most was Loki acting almost completely out of character : everything i have read of him is he likes to use Avatars or Henchmens and stays away from the heat of the battle as much as possible which makes sense cause he is a trickster and stuff.
Also he was completely wimped out in the movie with barely having any powers compared to the comic book version.
He didn't even technically need to be at the battle anyways right? he wasn't showing any leadership skills.
Oh, and this just occurred to me looking at the screen of the video that says "Loki patiently waits for Iron Man to remove the damaged suit, grab a drink, banter a bit, and put on a new suit, instead of just killing him". How many times have we seen it in a bond film that the villain sets an elaborate death trap for Bond, and then leaves him alone and unsupervised so Bond can escape. And he usually does so after revealing his entire plan to Bond, so that Bond knows exactly how to stop him.
It isn't as if this isn't a somewhat commonly used trope of action films. Or something unique to Whedon's work. All villains in all media do this.
Also he didn't let him put on the new suit. Once Loki figured out his scepter wouldn't work, he kind of just said screw it and chucked Tony out the window, while Tony was in his street clothes and the Mark 7 Armor flew out AFTER Tony on it's own, scanned him and attached itself to him in mid-air.
Just pointing that out.
Also, having watched the video, LOL, seriously that video cries about every little thing in the movie.
So, yeah, not taking anything it says seriously.
Yes, it even whines about people wearing sunglasses or walking around.
