Captain America: The First Avenger

Finally saw it tonight.  And it was pretty good.  I don't know that I enjoyed it quite as much as Thor.  This despite Captain America being better paced, better written and despite it feeling like it had more of a point. The main difference is that whereas Chris Hemsworth was amazing as Thor, Chris Evans was merely good as Steve Rogers.  In nearly every other way Captain America was superior, and yet in the end it just isn't enough.

I will draw particular attention to Peggy Carter being a far more entertaining character than Jane Foster.  That's not the fault of Natalie Portman who I honestly feel was doing well with a character who felt poorly written to me. 

And although I am kind of looking forward to The Avengers…I actually kind of wish that instead Captain America and Thor were actually just getting their own sequels. I think it is entirely too possible that the movie will just be too busy. I do not see any conceivable way that each of the characters can get the treatment they deserve.
