Movie of the Week: Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

I’m re-upping it because I watched this scene again.

The first two Captain America movies are my favorite MCU movies, honestly*. Both The First Avenger and Winter Soldier were excellent, although I’m not sure why many people don’t quite think that of The First Avenger. Well, it’d be a weird world if we all thought alike, huh?

*Although I love the Ant-Man film, too. And will hopefully have the same opinion of Ant-Man and the Wasp.

  1. They’re among my favorites, as well. I shudder to think what would have happened if the people doing DC’s movies had been the ones responsible for the Cap movies…

    1. Also, two great lines in that scene –

      “I would now.”


      “Shouldn’t be a problem.”

      (and the movie just completely skips over how they got the wings)

      1. I’d like to think that they were going to do that bit, and then somebody said “Hey. Do we really need to show it? These are goram Avengers.” And everybody else stopped, thought about it for a moment, and nodded in agreement.

  2. First Avenger is probably my favorite of the Marvel movies. It is possibly the single best example of capturing the character from the comic books. The Cap character in general is probably the best example of any that Marvel has done. Considering when this whole deal began, I figured that he would be one of the toughest for them to portray, it is kind of amazing.
    He is essentially George Washington- with superpowers. Which seems simple enough, but modern people have a problem portraying virtue and honor and I figured it would give them fits or they would try to make him ‘troubled and nuanced.’

    But lines like: “There’s only one God ma’am- and I am pretty sure he doesn’t dress like that.” tell me they pretty much decided to give the gigantic metaphorical middle finger to the post-modern age with this character.

    Note, I do not include Deadpool in this analysis. He is also a perfect portrayal, but he is also from the land of Sony, and they are just lucky Ryan Reynolds actually seems to know what he is doing there. Just keep giving Reynolds money, Sony. Don’t ask any questions.

    1. Ryan Reynolds says that he and Deadpool share a heartbeat, which would be insufferable arrogance on his part if it weren’t for the fact that I happen to agree with him. So, yeah, Sony. Just cash the checks.

  3. I don’t hate CA1, so I can’t hold it against you that its your favorite.

    Plus Iron Man 2 is mine, so…
