    Ok, I definitely have to get a sitter this weekend!!!!!!!

    OB? after we see CA, will we share a review on Movie Buzz or will there be a separate CA thread/post?

    Unlike GL, I have been very excited about seeing this film! I think Chris Evans really took this seriously and it seems like it may not be too terribly campy.

    CR–have you already bought your tickets??? 🙂

      Hubs looooved it and he is not a super hero guy. I noticed that there is less focus on the actual action of the super hero and more story and character development. You still see action, but it’s not a huge chunk of the film. I really hope you enjoy it CR. If not, I’ll eat crow. 🙂 But I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the overall message that is constantly being explored throughout the film.

      And I know this is going to sound really ridiculous to everyone, but I wanted to get my own CA shield–not because he’s “sooo cool!” but what he represents. I was very uplifted and motivated!!!
