Captain America: The First Avenger

Seen during the Super Bowl tonight was the trailer for the new Captain America movie. I will admit to not being a comic book fan, but the trailer for the movie looks like it might have some promise to be half way decent. Thoughts?

Most people are more worried that Chris Evans has played two characters in the same franchise, than if the film will be any good lol, I think it looks promising

Ahh okay...I saw the Fantastic Four movies, I didn't realize it was the same actor.

Ah the Cap. I wonder why nobody has gone to my Thor thread yet--I realize Natalie Portman wasn't the greatest actress but I would have thought that would be enough to get SW fans interested. lol

However I'm glad in some ways to see Chris Evans again. An avengers movie is sometime down the road I think.

I think I also saw somewhere that there was an avengers movie planned...don't remember where though. It would be nice to see..provided it doesn't end up like the X-Men movies did.

I'm getting a little tired of the Marvel movies. There are only so many super hero adaptations that I can take in the span of five years. Honestly.



It is all that is left unsaid upon which tragedies are built.

There have been a lot of them haven't there? but then Hollywood seems to not be capable of coming up with original ideas anymore given all the remakes that have come out in the last few years.

Iron man was really good, have yet to see #2. Hulk 1 was marginal at best, incredible hulk was better.

Wolverine...good if you have not read the comics.

X-men...they were okay I guess. Just not as interested now as I was a li'l tyke.

Daredevil I can't complain too much about. Could have been better. Never saw Electra though.

****ING JOY.

that means that there is a 'The Avengers' movie thats GOING to happen XD

we have now all FOUR of them, 100% expect Sam L Jackson appearing in both Capt America and Thor.

[edit] maybe 85%, depending on the countinuty w/ Iron Man 2, Stark might 'give back' that certain something (dont want to 100% spoiler something

Thor looks pwnage, so does this one, Iron Man was awesome, even the second one was quite good, the Ed Norton Hulk was OK, better than Ang Lee's piece of garbage anyways...Can't wait for the Avengers movie!

Time for some thread necromancy.

I saw this movie a day or two ago. When I first heard about the film, I was worried about having Chris Evans as the Cap. I knew from "Sunshine" that he's capable of acting (I'll blame F4 on the script). However, I was worried he wouldn't be able to pull off the square-jawed American hero look. I was happily wrong.

I loved this movie. Sure, it was sometimes cheesy, but you got the sense that it was consciously so. It was a movie without any pretensions of being something it wasn't meant to be. Given that it had the same director, it's not surprising that it felt similar in spirit to "The Rocketeer", which I loved, despite its flaws. Having a nice, old-fashioned, wholesome, and patriotic hero is a refreshing change from the brooding and angstiness that's been annoyingly omnipresent in the genre recently. And this is coming from a guy whose favorite comics include Garth Ennis' run on Punisher MAX, which is quite possibly one of the most dark and brooding (but not remotely angsty, thank god) comics out there (I can't resist bringing up that series. Everyone should read Vol. 5: The Slavers. Everyone).

Tommy Lee Jones' character had some hilarious lines. Also, I want some super-soldier serum. Hell, I'd even take the experimental type that makes you have a red skull face, if there wasn't any of the finished stuff, and I could get a convincing mask like Hugo Weaving did. It'd save money on Halloween, at the very least.

Yay for thread necromancy! I still haven't seen this movie even though I started this thread I want to see it and I'm glad that it seems to have lived up to my original supposition that it looked like it had the potential to be a good movie.

I thought it was rather good as well, like the Ironman movie it took a while to get going, but once it did it was thoroughly enjoyable.
