Marvelous!

It's rare that I see a film more than once at the theater.

Yes, I saw Star Trek XI thrice, but it's not a common thing.

That said, I just may have to go see the one I saw yesterday again. And maybe again after that. Which film? The one with the boy wizard? No, though I quite loved Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two, as well. No, this one, well, I've been waiting for this one. So much so that I thought it couldn't live up to my expectations. Unfortunately, that seems to be my luck this year. (I'm looking at you, Thor. Yes, you were perfectly acceptable, but you were missing that certain "je ne sais quoi" that would have made you special.) So anyway, about that... I was wrong. This movie was wonderful. So, which one, then? Why... CAPTAIN AMERICA!

Dude. I've been excited for this film for a while, but it surpassed every expectation I had. The costumes were drop-dead gorgeous. The score was pitch-perfect. The fight scenes were things of absolute beauty.
Chris Evans nailed Steve Rogers perfectly, and the transformation of his body via both digital effects and his own efforts should be commended. Hugo Weaving was utterly brilliant as Red Skull. And Dominic Cooper pulled off Howard Stark pretty damn well, too. The ending didn't wimp out but instead touched upon what a brutally tortured existence life is for Steve Rogers.

Yes, like Harry Potter, the film form of Captain America took some liberties with canon, but I'm relatively unburdened with Cap canon, so I enjoyed the hell out of the movie even with the few tweaks I noticed. (Um...Bucky? Love the costume reminiscent of your first, but weren't you...oh, never mind. It works just fine this way.)

But seriously, this movie was great fun, and I'd love to watch it again. I mean, after all, I haven't mentioned my favorite part.

*ahem*

The shield went "TWANG!" when it hit stuff! :D


We're good, people. Excelsior!

Dude. So. Good. Iron Man? No. But next best thing? Yes. And certainly a rollicking great time!
