Captain America: The Winter Soldier

The Blu-Ray isn’t due until the 9th of September but if you’re down with digital copies you can watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier again right now. The Winter Soldier is one of the best of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to date (top three by my reckoning!). It’s got action, it’s got adventure, it’s got an old fashioned spy movie plot, it’s got great actors giving great performances, and just enough tie in to the rest of the Marvel Universe that when the bad guys eventually flip the table, well, they really flip the table.

If you’ve already seen the movie you should probably add it to your collection. If you haven’t seen it you should see it! The best way to do that is legally and if you use the links below (you may have to turn off your ad blocker) then you’ll help us keep the lights on at Awesome Friday HQ.

I have a lot that I want to tell you right now that I just can’t. I don’t want to spoil the movie, and to do a proper review I won’t technically be spoiling anything, but I’ll tell you now that you should just go see this movie. You want to know why? Because it’s great. Fantastic even.

Review: All Is Lost

All Is Lost

Robert Redford is a hell of an actor. His career spans decades and he’s appeared in some of the most memorable film roles in history. If you wanted to make a movie about a man alone at sea in a sinking boat you could certainly do worse than to cast him. So that’s what JC Chandor did in All Is Lost. Good thing too because it turns out that All Is Lost is probably going to go down as one of those most memorable roles I mentioned.

All Is Lost

Let’s say you’re making a movie about a man lost alone at sea and you want to have as little dialogue as possible. You’d need a great actor for that, so naturally JC Chandor got Robert Redford to do it. Here’s the trailer, let’s watch!

Awesome: Robert Redford in Talks to Join the Marvel Cinematic Universe

News / Comments Off on Awesome: Robert Redford in Talks to Join the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Robert Redford

Mike Fleming Jr. Writing for Deadline:

EXCLUSIVE: Here is a fun Marvel scoop. I’m hearing that Robert Redford is in discussions to join the cast of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the sequel that brings Chris Evans back as the shield-carrying superhero. Redford is in talks to play a senior leadership role in S.H.I.E.L.D., the superhero collective run by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury character.

Please let this be true. Redford would make an amazing addition to the film and the MCU. No word on who he’d be playing specifically but it’s sounding like Nick Fury might be subbordinate to him (as in, he might be one of the council members as seen in Avengers 2). My favourite theory so far though is thathe might turn out to be original Nick Fury and that Nick Fury is just a codename that Samuel L Jackson’s character currently happens to have. Hey, it could happen.

Word is that if he signs Redford will sign a Marvel standard contract which means he’d be showing up in any/all future marvel films too.

As everyone else is pointing out, that’s great, but also kind of ironic for the guy who founded the biggest indie film festival there is to become a regular player in some of the biggest blockbusters of the next few years.

Either way, I’m excited to see this happen.
