Movie Review: ‘Captain America: Civil War’

May 9, 2016 at 12:05 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

Captain America: Civil War, in the end, is a pretty good movie. There’s action, there’s humor, and the storyline is solid. They did a good job of providing reasons why Captain America and Iron Man would fight each other. They also did a good job of not getting too carried away with that angle of the story. Plus there’s some fun new heroes thrown into the mix and somehow they manage to juggle them all.

The beginning of the movie, however, is a little rough. Personally, I had an issue with all the shaky cam, rapid fire fight scenes in the beginning of the film. It’s a chaotic mess for the eyes to keep up. For a while, I was really worried that they would keep up with that style of filming throughout the entire movie. Thankfully it got better and the messy shaky cam fights weren’t as prevalent or noticeable in the latter half of the movie. The battle at the airport, for instance, was easy to follow along with and enjoy. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Captain America: Civil War’…

free-comic-book-dayToday is Free Comic Book Day! Remember to hit all your local comic book shops and pick up those free comics. You can check out the official website to see what comics are being offered. While there aren’t any Star Wars titles on the list, I do recommend picking up Lady Mechanika #0 FCBD 2016 Edition as it’s a great series with top notch artwork and an excellent story.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 16 starts with a little Yoda and Maz Kanata news, their thoughts on the Blu-ray, and leads to their main discussion of Star Wars deleted scenes. This one is a fun one. They each cover their top 10 favorite deleted scenes from all seven films which leads to some hilarious discussion. I loved the idea of restoring all the deleted scenes for a TPM supercut longer than ever with an hour long podrace. Great episode with lots of laughs.

Blast Points: Episode 18 had me smiling three seconds into the episode. They touch on news, then head into a full discussion on Shadows of the Empire. It’s marvelous. They cover the book, the comics, the soundtrack and even the tv and movie tie-ins in all their goofy glory. A must listen to episode. Great coverage and tons of fun. This episode is definitely my pick of the week.

Blast Points: Episode 19 features guest Tom Berges, creator of I Grew Up Star Wars. Tom talks about how the website got started, hearing about Star Wars the first time, collecting, The Holiday Special, the radio dramas, Plastic Galaxy and more. It’s kinda like listening to an episode of My Star Wars Story. Pretty fun. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
