Saturday Night at the Movies 2/4/17!

Who cares what picture we see?

Jenny Agutter is leaning towards yes, while we wait for her to decide we'll make this the pick for this evening...

If I'd been asked in 2009 - after the first couple of Marvel movies had come out - if those movies would still be hitting on all cylinders by the time they got to the seventh or eighth movie in the cycle - I'd have been doubtful.

Then - after Iron Man and Thor and The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2 and Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers - I saw this movie - and damn it was good!

Captain America - a man out of time - continues adjusting to the 70-years-later world he's been revived in - and he's not pleased when he starts to realize that nearly everyone in this new world has a hidden agenda. And a really big hidden agenda is about to rear its head when the villainous group Hydra takes their shot at taking over the world. It's a good thing Cap has buddies like Nick Fury, the Black Widow, and new buddy Falcon who have his back - even if they don't always see eye to eye.

It's a big sprawling superhero action movie - and I have it on a spiffy Blu-Ray ready to spin like Cap's shield at any time - even this very evening, if you'd care to soldier through this winter's evening and come watch it with me.


Until next post - you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. Yeap. Captain America had become my most fave MCU franchise, next to Guardians of the Galaxy! The story just gets more and more mature!
