Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Quote of the Day: Captain America Speaks for Every Missionary Kid Ever

 

I identify with Captain America here. Mrs. Augustine understands this well, knowing some missionary kids (including her husband). She pointed out that Cap speaks for every MK here. So many things people in America say are so weird. But once in a while, we get to say “Hey, I got one! I understood that reference!”

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. ACF #13 Political Conflict in Marvel and DC

 

I’m back with the second part of my long conversation with my friend Pete Spiliakos. We talked about girls becoming women in despite of society in ’80s movies last time. In the most surprising way, Pete picked horror movies to show social and psychological realism. Well, he hit it out of the park there, but then our conversation veered to the aesthetic, dramatic art and the political implications of the new business model of sequels and franchises. Like it or not, in an age of sequels and franchises, it’s no longer feasible to ignore the problem of sucky sequels.

“The more that people like [Trump] spout off .. characters like Captain America become more important.” That’s from Captain America: Civil War screenwriter Christopher Markus. “It’s important to have someone remind people that that is not what this country is about, and you’re being kind of an ugly fool, and reductive. Bernie Sanders is #TeamCap. The Donald is his […]

It’s definitely worth seeing for the amazing action set pieces alone. I was surprised that I also found the film’s central disagreement (which […]

I am a big Captain America fan, but I wasn’t always. When I was a kid, and comics were still sold at the drugstore, I amassed a modest collection of a little more than fifty, notably the original Secret Wars series and a healthy run of Iron Man at about the time that Tony Stark […]

I will admit right up front that I’m a film buff, a movie snob and cinema snoot. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the occasional hyperspace-zooming starfighter craft thing blasting away at some mean-looking, insect-shaped alien space ship; or even the never-in-a-million-years-would-you-ever-see car chases where every pursuing cop car ends up flipped, t-boned, crunched, munched […]
