In Theaters: Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain America: The First Avenger is pretty much just what I am looking for in a comic book movie. Tossing in the subtle reference to Indiana Jones was a good call, as the pulpy roots are definitely on display here, in a good way. It was directed by the guy who did The Rocketeer, after all. Some comic-book references are thrown in, but the premise just accepts these things (vita-rays!) and move on with the action. Chris Evans gets most of the screen time, and does a great job with what could have been a pretty tough character sell. It helps that he's got a pretty solid supporting cast as well. And without giving anything away, they really nailed the ending. Check it out on the big screen.

Trailers to follow in their own post.
