Captain America: The Winter Soldier ★★★★★

2018 Superhero Rewatch: In which I return to superhero movies I've seen before to see how time has treated them.

"Dude, Captain America needs my help. There's no better reason to get back in."

When this movie came out in 2014, I declared it the MCU's best. I'll hold off on future declarations until I finish the rewatch, but it's sure as hell the frontrunner. The Russo brothers created a Cold War thriller perfectly blended with a superhero adventure, while at the same time capturing the spirit of Captain America in the 21st century as perfectly as Joe Johnston captured the essence of the character in the 1940s. I love everything about this movie.
