Some could make the complaints that this Avengers trailer was beat for beat along the same lines as the original movie - right down to the hoards of enemies, the circle shot, the quippy back and forths, the inner-team fighting , Tony and Bruce in a lab together with Tony rocking a different old school rock t-shirt and such buuuuuuut I have a feeling about this one - I really do. I think they're holding their cards very close and aren't revealing the big secret here.

Today's agenda: Watch the Game of Thrones Season 1-3 recap, watch the final episode of Game of Thrones Season 3, drink copious amounts of the Ommegang Fire and Blood Game of Thrones Ale, watch the premiere of Game of Thrones Season 4, discuss the Game of Thrones episode and then watch the re-run of Game of Thrones directly afterwards at 10pm.

I'm being a renegade this year. What I'm gonna do is wait till I have them all recorded and then marathon the lot. I didn't enjoy it last year and I think it's because I knew what was gonna happen, so that along with the weekly wait had me bored. Works better for me when marathoned.

I don't understand why but even though a lot of it is right up my alley I can't seem to garner any real excitement for Transcendence. It's an original SciFi psychological thriller from Christopher Nolan's cinematographer with a stacked cast that even includes my girl Rebecca Hall, but nothing. Maybe I've been burned too much by Depp recently or maybe I just haven't watched the right trailer, I'm not sure. I mean either way I'll definitely give it a chance, just probably not in the theater with my current mindset.

^ I mean no it's not based on anything, but with all the similarities I find it incredibly difficult to actually call this an original movie or an original sci-fi movie. People complained that Oblivion had familiar elements from other sci-fi movies? Sure, it did, but it's the most original thing in the world compared to Transcendence, which seems like a remake more than an original sci-fi flick.

Every single piece of fight choreography in this movie from the hand to hand stuff to the acrobatics to the shield incorporation was fucking top notch

This was the best fight choreography I've seen since The Raid. And in an article I read the directors watched that film a lot during filming. It shows. I have to see this again.

MINOR SPOILERS FOR AN EATER EGG IN THE WINTER SOLDIER: Did you guys also notice the "name checking" scene of some future superheroes? I believe it was Fury or Redford talking about people SHIELD were monitoring and Stephen Strange was mentioned as well as Bruce Banner and "a valedictorian from Illinois". Carol Danvers was a valedictorian so could that be hinting at a future for Ms. Marvel and Doctor Strange in the MCU? I thought so.

Whaaaat it's RDJ's birthday? I think that makes it RDJ day on MFC (sidenote: The Official one because everyday is RDJ day on MFC to the great WalkAway). He's a true Hollywood renaissance story with a fairy-tale comeback effort that didn't just solidify his career but helped launch comic-book movies and Marvel Studios as the game-changer it is today. He's blazed a landscape of brilliant performances like the ones in Chaplin, Less Than Zero, Zodiac, Wonder Boys and of course Tropic Thunder. So cheers to this mother fucker who is celebrating his birthday today by screening The Winter Soldier in his home for 100+ people. A goddamn legend

JohnLocke2342 at 05:57 PM Apr 04

The best way I can describe The Winter Soldier and The Avengers is that they're two sides to the same coin, one being an inherently lighter, fun-fueled blockbuster and the other being a slightly toned down, gritty revenge thriller. Both are excellent and both stand above the MCU but The Winter Soldier juuuuust edges it out because personally, for me, I love those types of movies.

Terror Australis

I think Iron Man 3 should be above the first Iron Man I liked the darker turn of it, and Ben Kingsly before the 3rd act made a great Mandarin

Captain America: The Winter Soldier



Captain-america-winter-soldier-retro-poster

Directed by: Anthony Russo
Written by: Christopher Markus
Cast: Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson, Frank Grillo, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford, Toby Jones, Hayley Atwell, Cobie Smulders, Emily VanCamp, Sebastian Stan, Georges St-Pierre
Studio: Walt Disney
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comic Book
Official Site:
Plot: Cap struggles with his past as it physically manifests into a threat to the world's freedom

Review:

As Marvel Studios continues to weave its way through sequels to their standalone franchises the recurring pattern seems to be a dip in all-around quality. The general consensus for both Iron Man sequels and Thor: The Dark World was that they had enough whiffs to deem them inferior to their predecessors. However there seemed to be more optimism surrounding the sequel to Captain America than the others when it was announced – and that left me intrigued. The original is a hit or miss 40′s throwback adventure that strongly relies on a tone from that time period. It was hurriedly put together to get Captain America involved before “The Avengers” and the movie’s cracks are evident. When I heard the sequel would be taking place in present time with one of the landmark characters from the source material my interested was solidified...[more]...

JohnLocke2342 updated his STATUS: 11 months ago

Count me as another MFCer who's expectations were met and than some when it came to The Winter Soldier. It's an absolute blast of an espionage thriller that delves into far richer themes than any of the previous MCU movies before it. For my money it's the best solo movie Marvel has put out as a studio and while it might not have the "aura" and fun that The Avengers had it was more of my kind of flick (and because of that my personal favorite). It's a sleek piece of entertainment that's rough around the edges with more realistic violence than we've seen in any Phase 1 or 2 flick before it. This is the kind of Marvel movie I've been waiting for.

JohnLocke2342 at 05:06 AM Apr 04

Haha well you guys will see what I mean about the espionage aspect when you finally check out the movie (a lot of that is in the first act but there are plenty of elements scattered throughout). I think you'll have a fucking blast with this one to be completely honest.

Anakin
Anakin at 07:45 AM Apr 04

I thought during the action that had Marvel raised the rating on the film - course I understand that'd never do it for Captain America - it would have quickly turned into quite the gritty, full on violent action/thriller. All that was missing was the bloodshed! haha. Glad you liked it!

Also MFC just an FYI - Tonight HBO is airing their "Game of Thrones Recap" at 7:30pm (and again on Sunday at 4:30pm in case you miss it). It's more or less a 30 minute refresher course of the previous 3 seasons that will get you up to date before Season 4 hits on Sunday.

What better way to spend a day off then by a nice little double feature before The Winter Soldier tonight? I'll basically be marathoning an unofficial "Cap Trilogy" with Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. SNACKS AND BEERS OBTAINED. GO!
