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!

It’s MY attack plan.

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

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!
