‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Might Be My New Favorite Marvel Movie

The Winter Soldier

I saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier last night, and although I had myself hyped to the max about the sequel the one of my favorite superhero movies of all-time, I didn’t expect it to be so damn amazing. After talking about it with my wife today I realized that TWS may be my new favorite Marvel movie. The story, action, and writing are all excellent and even though I hold The Avengers on a pretty high pedestal, The Winter Soldier may be my new favorite.

Maybe.

First off, the action. The fight scenes in TWS are so well choreographed and hard-hitting I was giddy in the theater. Winter Soldier shows off Cap’s talents better than his other two movie outings for sure. He easily knocks out thugs, sends them flying with a kick, and is super agile.

That wouldn’t be enough to make this my favorite Marvel movie by itself, but the supporting characters are great, the story is very interesting (and will impact the Marvel Cinematic Universe more than any other film) and the dialogue between characters is a lot of fun. TWS made Nick Fury seem like a real person to me for the first time. I hated his dialogue in The Avengers, but in TWS he feels like a real person and actually made me excited to see him in more movies. The same goes for Black Widow. She has more depth in this movie and has some great banter with Cap.

The New ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Get a Trailer

Posted 3 weeks ago by in Movies | 2 Comments

And it looks interesting. Not as bad as I thought it would, but I’m still on the fence. The Turtles are huge. The CG doesn’t look horrible, but still, this will probably be terrible. I’m bummed we didn’t get a shot of Shredder suited up or of Splinter.

What do you guys think?

You’re CG, Charlie Brown!

I won’t judge until I see the final product, but it looks like Blue Sky nailed it. I didn’t expect CG Peanuts to look this cool. With the Schulzs and Paul Feig involved, I think this will be pretty awesome. The movie doesn’t come out until November though, so we’ve got a while until we find out.

What do you guys think?

Cool Stuff: High-Res, Textless Movie Posters

Robocop

File this under That escalated quickly. One minute I’m checking out this cool post on Reddit featuring a high-res, textless version of the iconic poster for RoboCop, and the next thing I know I’m browsing a hundred-page thread on Blu-ray.com featuring even more textless poster art. If you follow THS on Instagram (and really, why wouldn’t you?) you know I have an office with walls full of geek art. I’m always looking for cool stuff to frame, and I’ve had a couple things printed just based on high-res art and photos I’ve found online.

Textless Posters

I’ll leave it to you to browse the two threads (one for PG-13 and R films, the other for G and PG) to find what appeals to you most, but here are a few highlights.

Watch the Full Length Trailer for ‘Godzilla’

Posted 1 month ago by in Movies | 4 Comments

Wow guys. I haven’t blogged about the new Godzilla movie yet, but I’m super excited for it. I’ve been a huge Godzilla fan since I was a kid, and this new movie from Gareth Edwards (the director of Monsters) looks amazing. It has a killer cast, and it looks like it understands that Godzilla is a force of nature and not just another movie monster.

Ugh I can’t wait to see this on the biggest and loudest screen possible.
