Captain America: The Winter Soldier ★★★★½

For me and many others, this is the turning point of the MCU
It maintains the perfect balance of feeling like a stand-alone film, while also being a major component towards the rest of the Infinity Saga
Evans is as great as ever and Johansson gets a lot to work with, and newcomer Mackie is awesome as Falcon
Some of the best choreography is in this, and that elevator scene is still unbelievably badass
Even though it’s predictable at times and the editing can feel sloppy, it’s an MCU film that feels grounded, thematically relevant, and tense
NOW TIME TO GET FUNKY WITH SOME GOTG
