9.5 Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy



Those rock solid hugely fun Marvel superhero blockbusters keep coming.  I loved that CA had a serious and important motivational element.  Guardians of the Galaxy was epic too – huge fan of Chris Pratt – Marvel just keeps delivering!  These are just AWESOME fun!

I like that the blockbuster action movies have moved away from the stupid so-fast-you-can’t-tell-what-happened style of action – there are some seriously – SERIOUSLY – beautiful superhuman stunts for which I don’t want to miss a single movement.  Strange to work so hard to write properly (no dangling prepositions) about superhero movies with short curt dialog.  But even that is being so well done these days.  Hollywood is getting their action movies right.  :-)
