It trult teasmore than it reveals, but what it shows is enough to start the countdown in earnest.  Say ka-ching, for another $600M plus domenstic gross next Spring.

First Look: The Birth of a New Hero in CAPTAIN AMERICA #25 (Article) - 9/10/2014 8:13:25 AM

 Since it has already been announced with mych fanfare and ballyhoo that Sam Wilson is taking up the red-white-and-blue shield, this is all pretty anticlimactic and rather self-imdulgent.

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Article) - 9/10/2014 4:28:10 AM

Bob, this entire rant substituting as a DVD review is pretty lame and misses the point.

Not everyone that goes to see superhero movies are rabid comic book fanboys. Most are familiar with the mythos of superheroes but do not have an encyclopedic knowledge of the multitude of storylines and nuances that intertwine present-day comicdom.

Most film-goers are looking to be entertained. The second Captain America movie did just that. The film-makers were successful in achieving that goal. Marvel is doing a good job in developing its own cinematic universe. Making a potentially stodgy character as Captain America cool to a contemporary movie-going audience is not small accomplishment.

I have read some film critics complain about the “sameness” of recent superhero movies. Give me a break! Superheroes movies are now an established film genre like westerns, thrillers, ron-coms, etc., with the prerequisite conventions and narrative parameters. As long as we continue to get films like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, then we have something to look forward to.

Godzilla: The Art of Destruction Coming Soon! (Article) - 3/18/2014 11:30:55 AM

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Yes Men Review (Article) - 3/13/2014 4:35:39 AM

 A little bit of Lady Sif goes a long way!
