Saw The Winter Soldier. The short spoiler-free review is that I loved it. It reminds me the most of what Marvel Comics have typically felt like post-Silver Age. Which is fitting since most of “Phase One” was adapting material from the Lee/Kirby days.
Just so no one can accuse me of being a Marvel fanboy (GUILTY!), I’ll point out that there was a slightly annoying amount of shakey-cam. I guess it was the only way to get that highly questionable PG-13 rating.
Anyway, now that the ban has been lifted on spoilers (at least for Europe and the US), I figure it’s safe to watch some b-roll footage. So…here.
