I kinda feel bad for Captain America. When I was a kid, I used to think he was basically Superman without flight. Since then, I've had to learn about all of the other
stuff he can't do. Hopefully with these new Marvel movies lining up, Winter Soldier
still manages to keep the Cap on top.
Anyway, last week I was able to take advantage of the weather closings we had, and watched a bunch of movies I hadn't seen before. The biggest standout from the pile was Stranger than Fiction
, which I had honestly never heard of, but it turned out to be pretty good. I also saw Life of Pi
, which I thought was great aside from a few quirky CGI moments.
Speaking of CGI, there was also John Carter
. Man, I really wanted to like that one. It wasn't a terrible movie, but it sounds like I'll get a lot more enjoyment out of the books.
And of course there were some oldies in the pile that I hadn't seen either, The Paper Chase
and Places in the Heart
. Can't go wrong with those, I suppose. I'm just glad I never went to Harvard, or had to grow up picking cotton!
