I did, and I just noted it in my post above. So, I am not picking on you.

I know you are entitled, by Spider-Fan, to call what I say BS. However, he's threatening me if I come up with an answer of the same caliber.

But your bunch of adjectives against what I posted is mere lack of imagination; which is just obvious, considering that you tend to repeat what the others just said.

I didn't entitle ANYONE to personal attacks! If you looked at my posts, I warned Caped Crusader, too! Seriously, trying to call me out on my hypocracy is a wasted effort because I hold no bias. Yes, you got attacked. But, everyone else seems to have stopped at my warning. You keep going! Guess what, you're no longer a victim! Consider this a last warning to stop.

I'm sorry, Spider-Fan, but what you did was to say, to a poster that directly attacked me, not to start a flame war.

When I was answering personal attacks, you have threatened me.

That's different. If you had appeared to say to Whiskey Tango not to start that kind of low level thing, that would be different.

I was just answering.

Yes, and that was me issuing a warning for people to back off.

Watched it, really enjoyed it, but had my share of nitpicks. Like the first half being really great and the second half wrapping up way too quick. That we didn't see Cap train and how he learns to ricochet his shield. He just seems the perfect fighter after the serum.

Overall, 7-8/10. Leaning toward a solid 8 though since I really had fun with this Movie.

Finally saw it in 3D in a maybe quarter-full theater (it was the first day of nice weather after a spell of rainy days and a weekday, so that might explain that). I loved it. Chris Evans totally sold me on the character (even in the dubbed version, lol). He was almost heartbreakingly cute as runt!Steve and very heroic and upstanding in supersoldier mode. I also loved every scene with Howard in it (it seems to be a Stark family tradition to get thrown around one's workshop, lol).

Only nitpick was that they might have spent a few minutes finding out his skill level in training, and that there was no real sense of how much time really passed during the montage, but that's more wishful thinking on my part and not really a negative on the movie.

9/10 for me. Iron Man 1 and 2 were better in my opinion, but as an Iron Man fan, I'm biased. XD

Finally got around to seeing the film, and I give it a serious 10/10 for being a quality film.

Beats out Thor and Iron Man for me, because I think it had a little bit more going on in terms of depth of character. Steve Rogers was just so immediately likeable, and you can immediately see how great he is going to be in Avengers.

God I am just so excited for that movie, seeing how they all interact together. It's gonna be epic.

What people call Cliches in Captain America I call old school fun! This movie is not trying to re-invent the wheel, it's supposed to be in the vein of the old school movies we grew up on, is it perfect?...NO(Too me it is because I appreciate what it tries to do, and I felt they nailed the character of Steve Rogers.) But man it's a fun ride. It's corny in places and that's one of the most endearing aspects of it in my book.

When does Cap leave theaters? Would like to catch it one last time before it goes out.

X-Men First Class leads the poll of "best film of the summer" but Cap is in second. I can see that because it's a tough call. Both films are that good. Thor is getting the shaft because it should be in the talk as well. All Marvel three were the best of summer by far.

In blockbuster terms or just films in general?

Blockbusters although out of all the films I saw I liked them best (including comedies and non-blockbusters haven't seen Midnight in Paris or The Help or The Devil's Double yet) ... and I voted Cap even though I loved all three Marvel films.

Weird that they would release the DVD/Blu-Ray so early instead of waiting a month for the Holiday season.

What's the domestic and international gross up to?


I wish that in the future, Marvel Studios will add some longer Behind-The-Scenes features. I loved the lengthy look behind Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, I was hoping Thor and most certainly Cap would get the same treatment. The Avengers needs to have the 3 hour treatment!
