Captain America: The Winter Soldier was vast improvement from the laughable first one! I give it bonus points for losing some of the cheese factor and boringness the first one dragged us through. It entertained the crap out of me for the most part and I enjoyed it much more than a lot of the other films in the Marvel series. However, there’s something about these movies that I will never love. They don’t really do it for me, once I’ve finished watching them, they’re gone. I won’t argue anyone if you think they are amazing, I’m sure they are… they’re just not my cup of tea. I’m superheroed out. It takes a lot for me to really love a superhero movie. I know they are out there and it’s possible, I just need something more than cool special effects and stuff blowing up. Props to this one for being enjoyable though, I did not expect that going in.
