Another week, another waste,
So it's been about a week since I was here to post...so let's play catch up.
I spent the last week in Geelong, with a surprise visit from the mrs! and actually did something entertaining, I saw Captain America.
In a word...Okay
I never liked Captain America as a hero since he has no real powers and works on pure luck. This was, essentially, highlighted in the movie when he makes ridiculous jumps and saving throws. There were some great effects,
especially in the dance scenes, and a few swimmy effects on the blue screens. The start of the movie had the greatest effects, in shrinking Steve Rogers to be a tiny man which if you didn't know, you couldn't tell. I hated the choice of his official helmet, it was too flat and the wings were painted on. There was a good story though, pretty cliche and obvious if you know some of the original stories. I could be bias since I'll watch anything with Tommy Lee Jones, but he stole the show, had the, in my opinion, funniest moment in the whole movie.
This was also the greatest movie going experience I've had in terms of an audience, it was me the mrs and the usher in the whole theatre. Geelong theatre is pretty small, but I was reminded of when I saw Saw 3 and it was only 3 of us which felt great to be alone in a theatre and not put up with obnoxious morons talking and trying to be funny.
Overall I would see the movie just to be caught up with this version of Captain America before The Avengers, in May 2012, and if you don't know how he gets from 1942 to the present. Also brief appearance of Colonel Nick Fury. 3/5 (4/5 if you take out my anti-Captain America bias)
Onto the next week, I'm back in Melbourne this week and I'll have internet access all week so I can do some more posting, especially about Green Lantern which I'll probably see tomorrow and try to prove Triple J wrong on their review.
