Default USO Scenes

Am I the only one who really enjoyed the uso scenes? The hitler punching thing was hilarious, and the music was catchy.

I honestly thought the USO musical sequence was the 2nd best scene in a superhero film of ALL TIME after the interrogation room in the dark knight. Absolutely phenomenal in tone, etc.

I loved when he was walking with the soldiers, and then you see that it was just a moving backdrop. That was funny. I hope the general audience liked this scene

Probably the only 'musical' scene in a superhero movie that actually worked.

The tone and authenticity of those scenes were great!... as was the intended comedy. Got a good reaction from the audience I sat with.

They were funny and kept brief unlike cheesy humor in most comic films

At first I thought it was too cheesy and that the GA would hate it so bad.....After the scene though I thought back at it and I really felt it was done right&worked near perfect,When I looked around I saw&heard people really into it!!!

My favorite parts of it all would have to be Cap in the comic's original tights suit and Hitler!

The nods to the original comic and can selling the war bonds...this is what cap was all about to me before the movie cap out..the idea of him as an icon to rally kids and troops alike to the war effort. Sort of a male soldier Rosie the Riveter. A figurehead. This is what the comic character was created to do and I think the scene embodies it perfeclty.

The sequence was very well done and Evans gave Cap a sense of humor. Also I loved the "Star Spangled Man" song so much by Alan Menken that as soon as I left the theater I downloaded the song off of Itunes and placed it on my I-pod touch . I really see this song getting an Oscar nomination and I think it should win it .

Evans looked great in the Classic tights suit with triangular shield and punching out Hitler just like the first issue of Captain America .

It's funny how ridiculous Cap's current costume looked on screen. Idk if it's because of the time period or if it's really that goofy.

Actually his current costume is pretty awesome, saw it in the Avengers teaser for a sec. This scene was GREAT!

Also shout out - Buffalo!

Didn't expect it, noticed it the second time but not surprised since we had a world fair back in the day.

I thought the whole USO sequence really worked well, especially how he got more and more into the role as time went on, more of a showman. Then getting the reality slap in the face when he's doing this in front of real soldiers.

Yeah, the jolt back to reality with the real soldiers was what made the whole sequence so great in execution. The way Rogers went from being apprehensive to enjoying it to realizing how he became a puppet. Really well done.

I remember a lot of rage about the idea of the USO stuff about a year ago. But it turned out great. Not my personal favorite scene but a good one.

People were complaining at the thought of Cap dancing and singing. But he didn't. The girls did. It's as I suspected.

I dig his current costume too, it just looked ridiculous during the USO scenes; and I get that "ridiculous" and "exploitative" was the point of those scenes but damn lol.

I'd like to get a better look at the costume they showed briefly in the Avengers trailer.
