Wow, ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ Is Kind of Good

It has been a glorious Saturday for me and what better to do on a Saturday morning than watch a good movie? I filed through Hulu, trying to find a film that I like, to a certain degree, but haven’t watched very often and I stopped on Captain America: The First Avenger. The last time I watched the film I enjoyed the first half but I kind of went blank on the second half of the movie. It seemed rushed, poorly edited, and a little bit corny, if I was being honest. But, for the most part, it is a Marvel movie (I love Marvel films) so I decided to give it a try today. I’m so glad I did.

Even though I’ve seen the movie before the last time I watched it was a long time ago so I forgot so much. This time I was able to fully concentrate on the film and it was kind of fascinating seeing all of the references that the later Marvel movies took from this one film. Like Captain America’s suit in The Avengers for example.

I never understood why Marvel would give him such a horrendous suit in The Avengers when his classic suit was clearly so much better. Today I just figured out the story behind the ultra tight Captain America outfit.

When Steve Rogers first became “Captain America” he was presented as a figure in advertisement to make people want to join the army and his suit was a super tight suit. When Agent Coulson told Steve that his new suit was fashioned off of the original design now I get it and I have to admit, that’s pretty cool.

His suit in The Avengers is still the wackest rendition of the iconic outfit but at least now I understand why it looks the way it does.

If Finn Was a Jedi

One of the coolest things about being a Star Wars fan is theorizing the movies. Since The Force Awakens there have been a LOT of theories to pore over and enjoy but one of the theories that I have always been the most interested in is whether Finn was force-sensitive or not. If you may recall, I wrote a post about his possibility of being Force sensitive earlier this year and I’m still hoping that he does end up being a tad bit Force-sensitive in Episode IX.

And my sister shares my same imagination toward Finn. In fact, she has drawn a certain piece of fan art that imagines Finn as a Jedi and it turned out to be so absolutely incredible I wanted to share it with all of you. Here it is.

Jedi Knight Finn

Isn’t. This. Amazing?! Not only is it a beautiful drawing but it looks nearly identical to the actual John Boyega!

I’ve always imagined Finn as a Jedi but to see what it could possibly look like is even more fantastic. Who knows? Maybe it’ll become true and we’ll get to see him use the Force in an exciting way in Episode IX. Maybe he’ll turn out to be like Leia. She had the Force but she didn’t exactly become a Jedi. She was able to use the power for intuition and even, in dire circumstances, to save herself from death but she was never a full-blown Jedi knight. Maybe Finn’s Force-sensitivity will be on the same level.

Whatever the case, this painting is awesome and I’ve loved sharing it with you all.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.
