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

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is one of those flicks that definitely grew on me, although my major problem with it still stands: you just can’t drive a car through Dizzy City that quickly.  You simply cannot.  There’s almost a law against it.

And so, adieu to Dark Dungeons.

PS: I actually read the hostage ship bit to my youngest today as a bedtime story. This amuses me.

Back from Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Short review: I quite enjoyed it, without being surprised at all throughout the film.  If I have a quibble, it’s that this was a movie where they should have at least mentioned where the heck the rest of the Avengers were: because Our Heroes and Heroine could have used them.

Oh, and one other quibble: I was able to maintain suspension of disbelief for most of the movie  – it’s a superhero flick, after all; you’re expected to run with things – but I couldn’t swallow ‘high-speed car chases in DC.’  Just. Not. Happening.
