Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Saw this on IMAX this morning. Awesome movie. My favorite since The Avengers. Probably the best sequel since The Dark Knight. Iron-Man 3 was intense but this one is more grounded and it works. I liked Thor better than CA1: The First Avenger yet its sequel, The Dark World was a bit ho-hum in comparison.

This is a real, edge of the seat thriller with some badass fight scenes. The Winter Soldier is brutal, an antithesis to everything Cap. The mid point reveal was a bit too comic book (imo) in tone at first but the movie makes up for it. I missed some Marvel references but I'll definitely fix that when the DVD/BR releases. Also couldn't stay for the post-credits scene, but the mid-credits one was good even if once again, I wasn't familiar with the references.

I really didn't like the first Captain America movie. Boring as hell, and Chris Evans just looked bored playing Cap.
Why cast such a great, funny and creative actor... and then not give him anything interesting to do or say?

I rather liked this one. Although just like with Thor2, the events seemed to warrant a need for the Avengers much more so than the actual Avengers film did.

I noticed that about Thor 2. And thought it was similar with Iron Man 3.
Where was Shield in all that? This horrible terrorist is attacking the country, setting off explosions all over the place... and Shield are nowhere to be seen or even heard of.

I could say it's because of that revelation in the movie...

Spoiler:


I loved the movie. The best from Marvel Studios. Haven't read any Captain United States comics, but I like the portrayal of the character in the movies so far, innocent, good hearted, yet brave and awesome.

I particularly enjoyed his taking on the leadership role based on those values and how everybody responds to that.
