Bad Haiku about: Superhero Movies (VI)
The skiing conditions were sub-par last Sunday so instead I took myself to a matinee of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. There's nothing I can say here that hasn't been said elsewhere - pretty good movie, Captain America is a decent, solid man confused and conflicted by our confusing and conflicted times, slight commentary about current drone warfare, blah blah blah. I liked it - and liked the Winter Soldier's screechy techno-ish score - but found it a bit of a downer. I know it's all a build-up to the next Avengers movie and so on, but still, I like my superhero movies to be uplifting and, you know, quippy.
Cap is a good guy
but Black Widow was
the best part for sure
That Anthony Mackie/Falcon was pretty darn adorable too - glad he's joined the party.
I read, ski, drink good beer, go to matinees by myself, honestly believe that the DVR is the world's greatest invention, burn dinner for Mr. Mouse on a semi-regular basis and watch more horror films than I think I do. I like puppies and kittens and baby bunnies and bacon and sunshine and the mountains of Utah and chocolate banana malted milkshakes and puppies and chick flicks (no, not chick flicks) and surprises and classic Mustangs and did I say puppies already? I like sarcasm and snark and tend to have a glass-half-empty view of life because when things turn out, I'm pleasantly surprised. I also like puppies.
