Default Re: Captain America: The First Avenger DVD Thread

That final modern day scene made the ending of the movie, imo. So bittersweet and poignant. The one shot of the kids with the trashcan lids wasn't enough for a satisfying ending, imo. It would have left me with a lingering "That'" feeling. Maybe if there was a little more of that stuff - shots of Cap's legacy, that is - then it could have been a real conclusion, but as it was? Nah. It was more of a comma than a period, if that makes any sense, whereas the final scene turned it into an ellipsis with a firm "To Be Continued" at the end. Which at least works as a type of ending, unlike a comma would.


"They say: sufferings are misfortunes...Once we're thrown off our habitual paths, we think all is lost; but it's only here that the new and good begins.

As long as there's life, there's happiness. There's much, much still to come."
