Movie Madness: Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Divergent

Say it Rah-shay By Mar 11, 2014 No Comments

Dating a self-proclaimed comic book nerd and having a child who loves action movies, I have to say that the movie but has hit me and I am kind of looking forward to the newest Marvel movies. I wasn’t a fan of the first Captain America movie but have changed my tune a bit about the sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Unlike the original movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier takes place in modern-day New York picking up after the events from the Avengers movie. An attack on a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague throws Rogers into a web of intrigue that places the whole world at risk.

ABOUT CAPTAIN: THE WINTER SOLDIER: After the cataclysmic events in New York with his fellow Avengers, Steve Rogers, aka Capt. America (Chris Evans), lives in the nation’s capital as he tries to adjust to modern times. An attack on a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague throws Rogers into a web of intrigue that places the whole world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and a new ally, the Falcon, Rogers struggles to expose an ever-widening conspiracy, but he and his team soon come up against an unexpected enemy.



For Christmas I gifted The Bee The Divergent Series Complete Box Set. She spent most of her vacation with her nose buried in the books. Her interest was piqued when we saw a trailer for the upcoming movie for Divergent, a trailer which even had me wanting to re-read the book.

In a few short weeks the wait will be over and there are a few people in my home (ok, me!) excited to visit this world in which people are divided into district factions based on human virtues.
