Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I had so much fun. Good action movies make you want to do the things you see on screen. Iron Man is fun to watch, but I don’t feel like I want to fly around and shoot beams out of my hands. But this? Yeah, I want to hold up a shield and run through locked doors. The First Avenger is still my favorite of the Marvel movies, but this is a nice elaboration and keeps the good drama/humor balance. Such a great character, becoming more suspicious, more wary of what he’s asked to do.

Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain America: The First Avenger. Pleasantly surprised by this one. You’ve got a solid underdog story, with an arc from bumbling to confident. The love interest wasn’t treated as typically as I expected. There was some blood spray and general grittiness that, coupled with the cutting-edge 1940s tech and throwback look, was really satisfying. I always loved that Captain America carried a gun. And they took some breaks for musical comedy! I understand and appreciate his role in the movie, but I wish they’d eased up on the Stark references. It’s really annoying to mention Stark because Stark is probably connected to Tony Stark who’s Iron Man who’s in a related movie. Stark. NUDGE. Hugo Weaving every now and then signalssss malevolenccccce with his sibilantssss. I will really miss Tommy Lee Jones if he ever retires.
