Another Deadpool Fan Film is coming soon!

Way back in 2012, we made a Deadpool fan film and we’re back at it again because… my boy still has that Deadpool costume. I understand that the below image might not be the most helpful teaser ever, so I’ll go on to say that this short will also feature Captain America and will be somewhere in between Blossom and The Odd Couple. If you don’t see the synergy between those two shows, then – wait, I don’t see the synergy between Blossom and The Odd Couple, so this video is going to be a bit on the odd side. But then, that’s kinda what we do around here anyway.

We’re about halfway done with filming and I’ve sorta started the editing, so this shouldn’t take too long, but I don’t want to give a debut date and be wrong, so let’s just say ‘coming soon’ and leave it at that.

What’s Your Number? (movie review)

It’s Anna Faris (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) and the Captain himself, Chris Evans, together, in a comedy! That sounds promising! And yet, despite its somewhat unique premise, What’s Your Number? is a by the numbers twenty first century romantic comedy. (You see what I did there?) Read the rest of this entry

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (movie review)

I finally got around to seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier this weekend and like The First Avenger, it exceeded my expectations. It’s at 89% at Rotten Tomatoes, but how does this movie work for the hardcore, casual and first time viewer? Let’s dig in! Read the rest of this entry

Captain America: The First Avenger – a video refresher course before you see The Winter Soldier 

Sure, I wrote a review of Captain America: The First Avenger when it first came out, and I could just refer everybody back to there, but what fun is that?  This is a Winter Soldier celebration!

Captain America Patriot Cologne is a thing that exists

It’s MY attack plan.

Some folks might want to be Captain America, but Dr. Girlfriend realized I want to smell like him.

She’s not wrong.

I’m sure you’re wondering:  What does a patriot smell like? Read the rest of this entry

It's a Captain America: The Winter Soldier celebration here at CJ!

I love me some Captain America, and I couldn’t be more delighted that another flick is dropping starring Chris Evans as the Star Spangled Avenger. I’m not completely in love with the way they’re writing him (one second, it seems like the Steve Rogers I know, but the next second, he’s firing automatic rifles and hurling people to their death), but I’m pleased with the way Evans is portraying the roll. Also, I’m a big Winter Soldier fan, and I’m curious to see the movie’s take on it. Unlike before Captain America: The First Avenger, my expectations are dialed up to eleven: the trailer gives the impression that the movie is interesting, and we’ve already seen what most of the players can do with their characters, and, as history has shown us, the second movie of a series is often the best one (Matrix trilogy aside), so all signs point to a good movie.

We’ll have to wait and see…

Oh, the celebration part – I almost forgot. Well, we should have some Captain America-centric posts going for the rest of the week, and maybe beyond. Stay tuned for more stuff!

Like the Captain America of Old, Chris Evans Tell Us What We Need to Hear

Captain-America-USO

“I think the girls only know the one song… but I’ll see what I can do.”

If you follow us on Twitter, you’re cool – but you also know I’m not a fan of this new volume of Captain America. The writing is boring and the character’s all wrong. Old School Captain America always knew what to do because he’s not just the champion of ideals, he is the ideal, and actor Chris Evans, who portrays the Star Spangled Avenger on the big screen, fits that tradition like a glove.

In an interview he gave to The Advocate (which I cannot find – thanks Google!), he had this to say on gay marriage:

“Are you kidding me? It’s insane that civil rights are being denied people in this day and age. It’s embarrassing and it’s heartbreaking. It goes without saying that I’m completely in support of gay marriage. In 10 years we’ll be ashamed that this was an issue.”

SWISH! Did the Captain hit the nail on the head or what? Chris Evans deserves some big ups for not wimping out and letting his shield fly. Good job, Cap – now go punch us some bad guys!
