Buy This: ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ is Now Available On iTunes!

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.

Review: Chef

Chef

Jon Favreau has a longer history as an actor than as a writer/director but it’s the latter class that Jon Favreau’s career has had a few bumps in the road lately.most people seem to know him as these days. After writing Swingers and directing Made and later Elf he eventually was given the job of bringing Marvel Studios first film to screen with Iron Man. That film was a smash hit and kicked off one of the biggest franchises of all time but the follow-up Iron Man 2 and later Cowboys & Aliens were met with less enthusiastic responses.

After all that bombast Chef represents a return to the type of film that got Favreau noticed as a writer/director in the first place: a smaller, simpler film with a straightforward premise and a lot of heart.

And you know what? It’s really good.

Review: Under The Skin

Posted by Simon on May 19, 2014
Movies, Reviews / Comments Off on Review: Under The Skin

Under the skin poster

You can put it away now: the idea that the unnervingly attractive Scarlett Johansson only became a superstar due to the fact that she is the human embodiment of a 1940’s bomber girl. It’s easy to decide on obvious categories – something that she has undoubtedly had to fight herself – and she could have effortlessly made her career as The Pretty Girl in all kinds of meaningless rom-coms and action flicks. But then you look at her filmography and you see a ridiculously diverse selection – from The Girl With The Pearl Earring and Lost In Translation to her deliciously deadly stints as Black Widow in the various Avengers, Iron Man and Captain America blockbusters.

And now, with director Jonathan Glazer’s adaptation of Under The Skin from Michael Faber’s novel, she can finally draw a line under the stereotype. In a movie that contains enough twists and horrors to keep you thinking for weeks, she carries the whole narrative while barely saying a word in a stunning, revelatory performance that is a career best to date.

Jon Favreau may not be the best action director but he does have a pretty impressive resume when it comes to comedies. Good thing his next film falls in the latter category. Let’s take a look!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Clip: Cap + Co Storm A Freighter And It’s Awesome

Trailers / Comments Off on Captain America: The Winter Soldier Clip: Cap + Co Storm A Freighter And It’s Awesome

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I don’t normally like to post full clips from movies but this one has a few reasons why checking it out is in your interest:

  1. It’s clearly from early in the film and doesn’t show the very end of the scene so other than giving us an idea how the action is going to be in the movie offers very little in the way of spoilers (most of the dialogue is in the trailers, also)
  2. it’s an awesome scene that has made me more excited to see the movie.

Let’s watch!
