Lent: Part 29

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) – They’ve toned down the old-timey jingoism from the first movie a bit, and upped the dignity for Scarlett Johansson since her first appearance in Iron Man 2. I am surprised when I not only don’t dislike her in a movie, but she is one of my favorite actors in it, and not to the detriment of everyone else. Everyone else did fine. I think it’s that her character is better written than it was at first. I credit Joss Whedon, even if he had no direct hand in this particular movie; his influence on the style seems to be lingering.
