It is amazing how defense of a film turns into a bash fest of others. It is why I have been avoiding the top threads at this point. Not a lot of discussion to be had.
Requoting your entire post because, basically, this. This x100. CA:TFA worked in large part, though the action was lacking, the story was really strong, Steve Rogers was a unique hero (little angst, no daddy issues, just wanted to be soldier, etc.) and the characters were great, IMO. Sure, there were weak spots, but that film has a ton of heart.

But I also really, really loved Thor:TDW too! I do wish the RT score for this movie was higher; I thought it was just awesome. If only for every scene involving Loki alone…

"Joss Whedon, Shane Black, Edgar Wright, James Gunn [and Ryan Coogler]… For as much flack as people give Marvel that's a pretty freaking great group of filmmakers. Kind of feel spoiled."
