So. Let's talk Captain America: Civil War
. Which I saw last night with innie_darling
The short, non-spoilery version is: I liked it a lot. It's no Captain America: Winter Soldier
, but I don't think anything could be? And it does do one or two things better than that movie. I enjoyed it a million times more than Age of Ultron
(though it suffers from one of the same issues I had with that movie, and if you know me, you probably know exactly what that is). But it really should have been called Avengers 2.5.
Also, FYI, there are two post-credits scenes. At least this time, almost no one in the theater left. I guess people can
asked me afterwards how much fic I was planning to write now, and my answer is, I don't know? I need to see it again without a lot of the OMG OMG OMG playing in my brain to figure that out.
Our audience was appropriately appreciative, I thought, cheering at various moments that required cheering. It's always nice to see a movie with an enthusiastic crowd, even though some of the dialogue got drowned out by cheers at certain points.
We also got the Rogue One
trailer which looks fantastic on the big screen. GIVE IT TO ME.
Now onto the spoilers. This is mostly rambly bullet points because I did not get a lot of sleep last night (and what sleep I did get was full of awful anxiety dreams), so while it's mostly squeeful, there is also some complaining. *hands* Have you met me?( spoilers )
Woo! So that was a lot and I'm not certain it made a lot of sense, but I enjoyed the movie a lot and I hope you did/do too.
Now I have to stuff more envelopes. Sigh. This is the mailing that never ends.
