Captain America is great fun

The Marvel Comics commentary on the effort to create the Perfect Security State.  Plus, lotsa splodey things, Scarlett Johansen, bromance, and more splodey things. A fine evening wit the Brohirrim.

Nope.  Still haven’t seen Noah yet, but I plan to.

      This absolutely made my day when it showed up in my facebook feed (I’m from P.R.).

        Love it!

    I saw it last night myself. Great fun. And I’m Canadian.

    Loved it. Best of the Marvel flicks so far. Loved, loved, loved it.
    I was pleasantly surprised at the respect shown to the values of the Greatest Generation. For years, the schtick with Captain America has been that he’s this old fashioned Gary Cooper type who just doesn’t fit into our modern world, and watching that conflict is fun. But this movie affirms that they really were the Greatest Generation, and it is our modern values that need to conform to theirs, not vice versa. Cap didn’t give in to “the way the world works.” He kept his integrity and his virtue and made the world change.
    Better to be a martyr than a sell-out.

      I think they fell back on this schtick a lot in the Avengers (which is one of the reasons why I don’t rank it as high as it usually seems to be). I hope Age of Ultron does better.

    Captain America is my favorite. I figured the movie sequel would be like most other sequels, but I am encouraged to hear great reviews and a tie-in to Agents of Shield which I have been enjoying. I realized that I like Captain America so much because he is humble. He does not believe he deserves his powers but is honored to be able to use what he has for good.

      Just saw the movie, and I think it’s the best I’ve seen yet (haven’t watched Iron Man 3).

        IM3 was good. Not great. Worth watching, but don’t expect a classic.

    I am looking forward to hearing your $0.02 on the Noah movie, Mark.

    I don’t remember Christians being this polarized over a film since…OK well Frozen, but before *that* since The Matrix (must be something about Gnostic overtones that gets people’s hackles up). Have read a lot of opinions on the film from writers / bloggers whose insights I generally value but that struck me as a tad irrational when it comes to this film. :-s
