Captain America

Magnet #1255 - Captain America

Now I know I'm definitely back home, getting things back to normal - I did an almost full-day movie marathon today, watching Winnie the Pooh, Captain America and The Smurfs.

I probably could have squeezed in Transformers 3 (yes, I'm totes late on that one), but I didn't have it in me to fork over another $17 for a 3D movie. Oiy. Pricing's gone nuts up here!

I think I bought this magnet at one of the Comic-Cons, or maybe even Forbidden Planet down at Union Square, but I remember when I bought it, I was all excited about the movie coming out this year.

I was kinda disappointed today.

True to form, I fell asleep during a pretty important part - well, important to my sister, anyway. She's been waiting on Captain America because her boyfriend Richard Armitage was in it, and only for like 10 minutes. I totally missed about eight of those minutes.

Oops. I know, ridiculous to wake up and see cute Richard Armitage running away from Chris Evans. I'm sure I'll have to watch the RA sequence over again, probably with DCsis - whose birthday is today - Happy Birthday!

But it wasn't just that sequence - I fell asleep again, and woke up to Steve Rogers fronting the USO...and at that point, I figured you know what? Maybe I should just leave, and catch the earlier showing of The Smurfs at the next theatre. Then Steve Rogers had to go and save his BFF and 400 POWs.

Don't think I didn't spend the next hour considering walking out, but I'm glad I stuck with it, given all the cool Avengers content at the end. (C'mon, that's not a spoiler!)

I'm also glad, because it did remind me also that I totally forgot to see Thor in the theatres earlier this year.

Yep. I need to get on that.
Pin It!

Awww, I liked Captain America, maybe as much as I liked Thor. But then I love these kinds of movies.

Also, I can't believe you missed my boyfriend ... and his not-so-good American accent. But I like to think that the badness of it is because he's -- spoiler -- a Brit playing a German spy pretending to be an American...
