Captain America: The Winter Soldier

 Uh… Wow.

This movie is actually good. As in “almost real movie” good, not just “comic book on screen” good. The basic thrust of it harkens back to all those official corruption movies from the 70s, of which “Three Days of the Condor” is probably most iconic. That starred Robert Redford, who cycles back in this one as Mr. Corruption himself, with a smile and a capitol C.

MOVIE REVIEW: The Wolverine

Probably the most successful superhero film franchise of the past 14 years, the X-Men films, which are credited with kick-starting the modern superhero film genre with Bryan Singer's X-Men in 2000, are still going strong with Bryan Singer set to return next year with X-Men: Days of Future Past, Singer's first time in the director's chair of an X-Men film since X2: X-Men United in 2003. This year, however, saw the release of The Wolverine, a somewhat follow-up to 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine and a direct sequel to X-Men: The Last Stand. Loosely based on the fan favorite 1982 Wolverine miniseries by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, The Wolverine was directed by James Mangold and sees the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, a role he has reprised for all six X-Men films, including a small but memorable cameo in 2011's X-Men: First Class.

MOVIE REVIEW: Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain America: The First Avenger tells the story of Steve Rogers, a young guy who wants nothing more than to serve his country by fighting in World War II. The only problem is he's been classified 4F (unfit for military service). Steve's best friend, James "Bucky" Barnes, is a sergeant in the US Army and although he feels for his friend, he knows he wouldn't last long in battle with his frail frame. Bucky tries to talk Steve into giving up on the Army, but can't help but support him every time he tries to enlist (using different aliases in different recruiting offices). It is during one of these conversations that Steve's determination is noticed by a German scientist who is looking for candidates for his super soldier program.

EPISODE REVIEW: Iron Man Armored Adventures: “Tales of Adventure, Parts 1 and 2” (Episodes 25 and 26)

So here we are, after just about exactly a year, the first season of Iron Man: Armored Adventures comes to a close. There was some confusion as to exactly how long a season was, and whether or not we were actually well in to the second year of the show - cartoon seasons tend to run 13 episodes - but ultimately it turned out to be one long run of 26.
