Captain America: The Winter Soldier [Apr. 5th, 2014|07:21 pm]
Xiphias Gladius
Just a brief, spoilery note

So, going into the movie, you either know that the Winter Soldier is Bucky Barnes or you don't. Lis and I did.

But when his mask fell off in the fight scene, a woman's voice in the middle of the theater went, "HOLY SHIT!"

I like that there was someone in the theater who a) didn't know that was coming, b) was aware of the details of the story enough to realize what it meant, and c) was INVESTED in the story enough to CARE about it.

Even though I KNEW it coming in, I still gasped at that moment. And at another of the movie's reveals I screamed in delight (causing the whole theater to laugh at me).

I hope my spoiler cut works: [Spoiler (click to open)]

When Fury showed up alive I screamed "yes!" and the whole theater cracked up. *blush*

And could remember what Bucky looked like in the previous movie...

I mean seriously, am I the only person who thought Bucky's character was completely forgettable and that the actor was barely even distinguishable from anyone else anyway? (Heck, how is anyone supposed to recognise him with that new super-cool Winter Soldier hairdo?)

+1. In fact he looked so different I thought they had recast the role for the new movie!

For those of us who did know, I think the "Who's Bucky?" line was the surprise we got to have.
