Wow. I mean wow. I just watched Captain America for the second time this week, and yes I enjoyed it just as much as the first time around. I wholeheartedly agree with the following summary given by waketosleep
: OH, STEVE
. Earnestness just doesn't begin to cover it.
On a totally superficial level, there is of course this:
And I'm like "COME ON, GIRL DON'T HESITATE! GRAB A PIECE OF THAT!" *coughs* Anyways...and I never noticed before but Chris Evans has the longest eyelashes I can ever remember seeing on a guy. Ever. I think he has Dean beat. *_*
Now on a non-superficial note, Chris did a very good job of playing Steve's character. He was not the smart-ass comedian from FF4, which was an initial fear of mine. He played him sincere, honest, and humble. The little guy with the heart of gold. I fell in love with Steve Rogers all over again in this movie, long before he even got the super-soldier treatment. You fall in love with his personality, his willingness to go on despite the odds. And the moment he ( *SPOILERSPOILER*Collapse )
I knew that whatever came after that point would be fine because that's Steve's personality to it's core.
LOVED it. Want some more of it. Howard Stark is amazing and hilarious. I CANNOT WAIT to see the first time that Tony & Steve meet. I will be going insane for the next year waiting for Avengers and Star Trek XII. Next year will be awesome! Speaking of which, go read this amazing Steve/Tony:I'll Scrape You Up and Reconstruct You
over at AO3.
And make sure you stay all the way through the credits!! There is an Avengers sneak-peak at the end! Hawkeye!! Thor! Tony patting Thor's muscles ^____^
I am IN my happy place, baby.
