I didn't like The Adjustment Bureau
as much as I hoped I would for the same reason. I was still entertained by the movie, but I was expecting something along the lines of Dark City
, and instead got something completely different. They had a happy ending just handed to them in The Adjustment Bureau
; in Dark City
, the protagonist had to work for it.
I saw Captain America: The First Avenger
yesterday. Holy hell that movie was awesome. I love all the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies that have come out so far, but Captain America
is probably my favorite so far. It's a close tie with the Iron Man
movies, and they only rank as highly as they do owing to how snarky Robert Downey Jr. is as Iron Man. Captain America
very nicely puts the finishing piece in place, setting up The Avengers
movie next year, and I can't wait to see it.
