Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

So, I’m going back to watch all the MCU movies in some kind of chronological order, and I started with Captain America. I’ve seen it a couple of times years ago, but I recently got the 4K version for my collection.

I remember that I didn’t care for this movie all that much after the first viewing, but I’ve warmed a bit up to the MCU over the years, and (in danger of sounding 14 years old) Captain America is one of my favorites (after Doctor Strange, of course). 

It was fun this time around, with the excellent Chris Evans in the lead, and an over the top and beyond Hugo Weaving as the villain. However, I didn’t care too much all the science fiction-ish lasers the bad guys were using, as it cluttered up the otherwise excellent World War II art direction and cinematography, in my opinion.

Not as good as the later Captain America movies (of which The Winter Soldier is my favorite), but it was still a fun watch.
