I Didn’t Think I Could be More Excited About “Civil War”

…But a 100% through fourteen reviews on Rotten Tomatoes did it.

I know. 14% is nothing, right? But you gotta read these reviews. They say stuff like this:

Captain America: Civil War feels like a pinnacle for Marvel. Like, I can’t imagine their movies getting any better.

Captain America: Civil War is the best Marvel Studios movie yet. There, we said it.

Matching its blockbuster scale and spectacle with the smarts of a great, grown-up thriller, Captain America: Civil War is Marvel Studios’ finest film yet.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe on the whole is filled with great films and blockbuster gems, but between The First Avenger, The Winter Solider and now Civil War, it’s been firmly proven that they have a better grip on Captain America than any of their heroes, and it can be said with confidence that the three movies come together to create the greatest superhero trilogy of all time.

The general impression I’m getting is this: DC really wanted to make a movie exactly like this one, but they overshot their mark. We had no relationship with either of their heroes, whereas we have a long one with our two leads and most of the bit parts. So as a result Marvel’s movie hinges on character interactions and history that DC just didn’t have. So DC’s movie was a failure, where Marvel attempted the same thing with massive success.

Your move, DC. “Suicide Squad” better be good.

  • This is, without a doubt, the single movie of 2016 that I’m most looking forward to.

    • I’m nervy about looking forward to any movie these days. But it and the Scamander movie are the only two I’m likely to pay tickets to see in the theater.
