Sheldon’s 2014 Fifteen (Plus Five) Movies!

01

After careful consideration – and with some trepidation – I’ve finally put together my final list of my favorite movies from 2014. It was the first time in a long while that I saw more than 200 movies and a lot of them were incredibly good (a lot were incredibly bad, or boring, but I’ve already dealt with those).

As usual, these are the films that got me laughing, crying, engaged in conversations and generally made my brain fizz in a good way. As usual, anyone who says it was a crap year for movies just wasn’t paying attention.

Also note that two movies – Selma and Boyhood (despite their importance in terms of history and/or unique concepts) did not make my favorites list – not because they were bad films. They were not. They were very, very good ones. They just didn’t connect with me as much as these twenty did.

So, hold your breath – here we go…

Captain America: Winter Soldier Blu-ray Review

CaptainAmericaWinterSoldier3DCombo.jpg

One of the best films of the year is finally available on DigitalHD and Home Video. The fine folks at Disney/Marvel were a little cheap this time and only sent out the first disc of the multi-disc set for review. Does the film hold up well on Blu-ray? I’ll save you the trouble, yes the movie is amazing but this near featureless Blu-ray release pretty much sucks.

Captain America Winter Solder is coming to Blu-ray, September 9th in several different variations including 3D, of course these days it’s all about streaming, so it’ll be available on your streaming service of choice – August 19th. Extras seem a bit slim – a couple of featurettes, director’s commentary track and a blooper reel. Sadly no announcements regarding a Marvel One Shot. Here’s the official press release.

Michelle finally reviews Captain America Winter Soldier.

It is hard to argue that Captain America The Winter Soldier isn’t the best Marvel movie to date (although, I still think The Avengers is better), but it lacked something and I’m not sure what it was. Watching this film, I couldn’t help but think of this as Marvel’s version James Bond done the way I’ve always wanted to see. It is technically flawless, has a fabulous cast, amazing action and a great, great story but still….

Captain America: The Winter Soldier – Superheroics With a Conscience!

Captain-America-and-Batroc

Captain America: The Winter Soldier nimbly balances superhero banter, character development, political intrigue, conspiracy thriller and superheroic action set pieces with equal facility. It is, without doubt, Marvel’s most mature movie to date.

The Falcon Takes Flight!

I’m guessing that one of the coolest things about starring in a superhero movie (besides, y’know, the superheroics) might be some of the unexpected perks – like when Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s Anthony Mackie got to fly with the US Air Force Thunderbirds on March 31st, in an F-16 Fighting Falcon (above and after the jump).

I want his job! Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens Friday.

Marvel has released two new videos in support of Captain America: The Winter Soldier – a look behind the mythology of the film’s villain, and a quick look at the Black Widow in action. Skip the mythology featurette if you’re a fan of the Marvel Universe movies but haven’t read the comics – there’s a huge (and I am underselling this) spoiler revealed. The Widow clip is just good, clean violent fun. Check them out after the jump.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4th.

New TV Spot: Cap Goes On The Run!

chris-evans-anthony-mackie

Captain America: The Winter Soldier brings Cap into the present in something approaching a ‘70s spy thriller a la Three Days of the Condor (which starred Robert Redford, who plays a key role here). In this new spot, he seems to have run afoul of the law – which seems uncharacteristic of our patriotic super soldier.

Check it out after the jump. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens on April 4th.
