Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier Discussion Thread

So i've slept a night and thought about it some more and it's still one of the best comicbookmovies i ever saw. The mix of action, drama, humor and character moments is near perfect. As has been said it is a gamechanger movie from which Marvel can't bounce back easily andand they might even don't even want zo.

One special mention - the Winter Soldier. While he's "only" the action villain used to oppose Captain America in the field he still was a brilliant character especially when the personal connection to Cap is revealed. I'm also happy that his story isn't immediately resolved but that it will form the basis for the third film.

Last but not least i'm also curious what that may mean for the Shield show, should be an interesting next few weeks.

That's one of the things I think the film did particularly well; it had this big SHIELD v HYDRA thing going on that's going to have a massive impact, but the film managed to balance that with the personal battle of Cap v Winter Soldier, so the it felt intimate and spectacular all at the same time. It's easy to see now why Marvel were so quick to give the Russo brothers Cap 3, even before this film was released.

I agree. Best one to date (and I loved Iron Man I). The use of all the supporting cast was excellent - so many nods to fans of the comic too - Peggy's cameo was clever and cool.

I am headed off to see it here in the US with a few buddies from work this coming Friday afternoon. The trailers have been more than encouraging in every way. Nice to see that the advanced word seems to back them up nicely.

Just saw it today, fantastic movie but it has me wondering about how AoS is going to manage now.

And athough someone else already pointed it out:

Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier Discussion Thread - SPOILERS

Saw it a couple of hours ago. It was pretty good, storywise and actionwise, and it did feel like an Avengers 2. I'm assuming we can spoil away, being that this is a discussion thread with the word Spoil in the title. I hoped to see Bart/Hawkeye but I guess he's taking a vacation after a god took over his brain.

For some reason when Natasha and Steve are caught in that explosion, I thought it would end in Cap giving her a blood transplant (tying in her Super-soldier comic ability).

Agent Sitwell is an asset to Coulson and the crew knows him well (Simmons shot him with Skye). I'm sure his reveal will hit the group hard.

I'm sure Fury has all sorts of favors he could call in.

Probably one of the best Marvel movies sofar. How do you make an superhero movie without resorting to over the top villians and make it relevant to the modern day society?
Well, appereantly like this.

Little question/spoiler:

Could the Winter Soldier be an Avenger in Avengers 3?

Actually there was heaps of idle time. After the hijacked cargo ship nothing really happened until Fury's attack by the we're-not-cops.

It was good but I wouldn't call it amazing. I really liked the first one but I felt this one was off the mark slightly. I guessed all the plot twists pretty early on.

Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier Discussion Thread

I graded it "Good". These superhero movies kind of blend together but this one was enjoyable none the less and they upped their game by giving us some of the best choreographed fight sequences I've ever seen. The story was decent too.

What else...

- Evans really owns the role.

- Johansson is always a pleasure.

- This movie does feel like part of a series rather than a movie in its own right. That's not necessarily a bad thing, it's just an observation. As such though, they've had to skip over Rogers getting used to life in the 21st century which feels like a missed opportunity.

- I could have sworn I saw a set photo a while back with Emily VanCamp in a Captain America-like outfit. Weird.

- Didn't catch the Ezekiel 25:17 reference. You people are good at this.

- Didn't catch the Doctor Strange reference either. And funnily enough, I was looking for one thinking they might name drop.

- I don't recognize anything from some of the post-credits scenes these days so thanks for that too.

- So I guess Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is only one season then?

- Guardians of the Galaxy actually looks good.

Have you seen the latest episode?

Things are starting to go down the drain there, too, now.

The next couple of episodes will find the team in a completely new world and I don't expect all of them to survive.
