CAPTAIN AMERICA WAS *AWESOME*
Really, just good all the way through, did everything I wanted it to, and Tommy Lee Jones was so good. I always LIKE him, and in MIB I REALLY like him, but this might be the first role where I LOVED him.
Red Skull looked FANTASTIC. Like the comic come to life, and yet so real and creepy. Loved everyone–except, I have to say, Bucky. Not super crazy about the actor. Not sure what it was. Oh God, Dominick Cooper needs his own Howard Stark movie.
LOVED what they did with the “skinny” Chris Evans. I always forget who he is when I see him in things. In this, he’s very plain-looking, but I don’t think of him as generally being plain so I forgot it was him until the end credits. The dude is a bit of a chameleon. Good job.
Now I am so psyched for The Avengers. I liked Thor, and I adore Iron Man, and I really enjoyed Iron Man II (but I’ve already forgotten so much of it), but Cap was absolutely second best.
(If you’re wondering why a self-proclaimed comic book geek took so long to see it, it’s because I am prone to the dizzies, and movies at the theater make me feel sick and can induce vertigo. It SUCKS to wait, and I’m such a spoilerphobe, but I’m getting really good at avoiding news so I can enjoy the movies fully when I finally, finally get to see them.)
