Then he vomited acid all over my shoes
So i was able to sneak into Captain America a few days ago. Quality movie. I see why everyone was applauding it. Easily the most socially important comic movie since The Dark Knight. Which is not to say its as good as that. But its probably the best non-Avengers Marvel movie they've made. Only the original Ironman could knock it off the top spot.
While damn good, you could see with a few tweaks it being a genre defining blockbuster like Nolan's movie. It came damned close. It had it in its DNA. The directors kicked ass and the cast really brought their A game. The topics it brushed up on were compelling and extremely relevant not only to today's world, but questions mankind has been asking for centuries. Ultimately i have to conclude its a side effect of being owned by Disney. They cant really dive into that stuff like Nolan could. A shame but still really well done. Thinking about it all of the "phase 2" movies have been pretty good and the quality has risen over their first installments. I suppose i cant complain...
..except about one thing: where the **** is Jeremy Renner? Looking back at the movies im not to sure where they could have fit him in. And i definitely wouldnt have wanted him to replace anyone in Captain 2(and again: cast killed it. The new addition, Anthony Mackie, was a brilliant hire. Really enjoyed his role and work in it), but they have a quality actor under hire with an established role and they are dicking around with it.
Anyways, back to the point: thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed Captain 2. Arguably the best "single" super hero movie they've done. And this is coming from someone who despised the first Captain America.

As you stated earlier its addicting. For all the bitching from reviewers about it being "elder scrolls light" my ****ing mission log fills up with a new mission ever 5 feet. Only level 7 but love the "phasing" mission effect they have, where towns change depending on where your at in the story.
Wish I could play, but simply no time before July.
I'll be honest. The part of your post I read was the first question. I'm hungover and having coffee so I'm just not into it.
Where have I said it wasn't his job to find a QB? I'm not defending Jeff, I'm glad he got fired.
All I said is on paper 2013 was his best and it still sucked more than most.
