Being as I didn’t have the bog when these came out… and sadly the cable movie stations didn’t endlessly show the first 2 captain movies, and what’s up with that anyway.. of course any other movie they do it for but for one that’s at least 5 years old and for those that may need a recap of what has gone on so far (at least in Cap’s movies) they can’t endlessly show it.
So its a week or 2 after seeing Civil War on opening day and I wish I had the money to see it again in the theater… so instead I’m going to rent the previous 2 movies and thought I’d do a look back review of them .
Captain America the First Avenger
2011 PG-13 2:05 Action, Period,Comics, Origin, Adaptation Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Hugo Weaving, Dominick Cooper, Hayley Atwell
The movie starts March 1942 in Tonsberg Norway incursion for the Teseract. Why would you just have one safe guard to guard that treasure? Not to mention the button to open it was found so easily… approximately 10 minutes in Bucky shows up looking so handsome in his Uniform.
Bucky: Don’t do anything stupid till I get back”
Steve: I can’t, you’re taking all the stupid with you”
He enlists to fight in World War 2 5 times failing all of them.. to short, too skinny and has asthma just to name a few. The little guy with lots of heart gets the chance “to kill some Nazis” when he volunteers for a secret experiment that will transform him into Captain America, a super soldier with a perfect physique and heightened reflexes whose metabolism burns four times faster than the average person.
Captain’s Pajama’s! the uniform really does look so, watching some interviews of the cast for the movies and the guys joking about it.
Steve learns of troop 107 being captured, and seeing him remember that’s Bucky’s. There’s no rescue mission so he goes solo to rescue his friend who is not with the other soldiers but in a lab in a chair, but recognizes him right away so did or didn’t they (Hydra’s) Dr. Zola experiment on him yet?
So the ‘plasma weapons’ are made from the teseract? It dosen’t look any smaller
The Fondue running joke, still a tickler and pretty sure Bucky made sniper with the army.
Oh That’s how Bucky falls out of the train. He uses Cap’s shield when a blast goes off it knocking Bucky out of the train to hang on to a broken bar to keep from falling to his demise.
Love the ‘backfire’ on Cap’s bike
How’d they make Chris Evans into the scrawny Steve Rodgers?
The Winter Soldier
2014 PG-13 2:16 Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo,
So Steve Rodgers is running circles (or in this case rectangles) around Sam Wilson when Black Widow shows up
“Hi Boys, either of you know where the Smithsonian is; I’m here to pick up a fossil”
Hydra strikes again in the form the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D and the Winter Soldier who turns out to be Cap’s err.. Steve Rodgers best bud Bucky Barnes
While on a mission on I forget the ship’s name, Cap has a fight with Georges Batroc played by actual UFC fighter Georges St-Pierre.
We learn that Natasha has previously had a run in with the Winter Soldier and why she has a scar on her hip, and tells Steve the soldier is responsible for over two dozen assassinations in 50 years.
Easter Eggs: Loki’s staff & the Twins and Bucky in the Smithsonian
Special Features: Rental DVD from Netflix- was a Deleted scene and Steve Roger’s Notebook
