I'm not sure WHY, but I had the impression that Captain America was mostly set in the present day with just a brief flashback intro to the past. I actually liked it a lot better this way, it felt more authentic. Chris was believably earnest and cute. I would have liked more Bucky. I was actually pretty creeped out by the teeny, pre-Cap Steven in the trailers, but it looked a lot better in the movie, even with my copy, and I did like Peggy a lot, too. I have no idea why they had Hugo Weaving in this movie. It's like they didn't DO anything with him except make him a doofy cartoon villain. I did like Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark. (It also amused me, because for the longest time, I always confused Dominic Cooper and Sebastian Stan for the same person. I DID know the difference by now, but it was still funny to me. I don't know why, they don't actually look that much alike.)
But yes, I liked it. My parents were also watching Green Lantern the other day and I saw a few minutes of it and it looked AWFUL. So I don't think I'll be sitting through that one.
Now I can read all the Marvelverse crossovers everyone has been doing! (I might already be shipping Steve/Bucky and Tony/Steve to go along with my existing ships.) I WILL READ ALL THE THINGS. Or some of the things. A sampling of the things. I need some Avengersy icons.
I am watching Merlin now. My heart still ships the hell out of this show.
