Comic Book Movies

Last week, I finally got around to seeing "Captain America: The Winter Soldier". I'd seen a lot of chatter on the internet about it, and since I really enjoyed the first one, I wanted to see the second.

I liked it a great deal because it encompassed a lot of issues that are on my mind often: the NSA, privacy, constitutional freedom, and PTSD. It didn't hurt that Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan are cute as all hell.

However, this sent me into a frenzy of "I need to watch comic book movies!" I bought the first Iron Man today at Bookman's, and it was the only Marvel film they had. I downloaded the first Captain America movie from Amazon and gave that a watch. Now, however, I want to see The Hulk, which I haven't seen yet, and "Thor: The Dark World" which I haven't seen either. I'm "meh" on the X-Men films, but might go to see the new once since matinees here are only $7.

I've always liked the interlocking stories in the Marvel universe, so watching the various films from The Avengers is a natural.

Believe it or not, I'm writing a "Winter Soldier" fanfiction right now.

DON'T watch "The Hulk"! It's awful! Instead, watch "The Incredible Hulk", the one with Ed Norton. It's MUCH better.

We've been loving the Iron Man movies and Cap. Skipped Hulk. Thor's a lot of fun.

The Widow needs a belt-fed grenade launcher. Seeing her stand in the middle of an alien invasion with a couple of pistols is just embarrassing.

The first Cap is good - looking forward to seeing Winter Soldier and The Dark World when I get home.

I'll have to ask the brothertype if he'd like to go see it with me, since I hate watching movies alone. He's into superhero movies (but I can't get him to watch Arrow, which frustrates me), whereas I'm not, but if it's good, I'm game.

I liked the Iron man movies,and actually most of the superhero movies (not so much the last superman)

I can honestly say I have not liked any of the Superman movies.

found myself getting hooked on Smallville, or maybe it was watching Tom Welling for an hour every week -

We just watched the new Thor and it is a million times better than the first one. Plus you have to try to catch all the references they make to the Avengers movie.

Just emerging from my internet hideaway to express my happiness that you're dipping your toe into my Avengers Feels. And also that the first 500 words I've written in almost two years were Char/Garma-in-the-Hunger-Games-related. I miss you!

I've missed you too! I'm going to be in Columbia, SC (Fort Jackson) next week from Sunday to Wednesday. How far away from you is that?
