Captain America: The First Avenger ★★★½

Fun, humorous, heroic — I thought this was a neat one all the way through, down to the cool end credits.

Joe Johnston is the perfect choice for director — there's more than a little of The Rocketeer in the golden age sensibilities of the Cap.

Also worth noting: Captain America's WWII-era costume looks way better here than the “updated” version in the The Avengers movie. And I really dug the design of the ginormous Hydra tanks and bombers, too.

Lastly, captain is a weird word to spell. Captain. Captain. Captain. Yeah, just doesn't feel right.
