Writing about a sequel in the Marvel franchise is tricky because of the franchise’s incestuous nature. Iron Man, for example, has three movies of his own, a lead role in “The Avengers” and either stops by or is referenced frequently in the other Marvel films due to the ubiquitous nature of Stark Industries. All of those appearances and references serve as outlets to broaden every hero, so isolating Thor's actions in his franchise is impossible because of the character development he sustains in the tent pole film.
Simply put, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is one of the best action-adventure films ever made and is the best time I’ve had at the movies since The Avengers. In fact, the new Cap film rivals and maybe even surpasses The Avengers in both dramatic story and charming wittiness, and it comes close to beating the super-team flick in overall wow factor as well. My recommendation is that you run to your local theater and “buckle” up for this awesome ride before you hear too much about it. (Don’t watch any more previews – don’t read anything else about this movie – just go – now.)

This is one of those rare weeks when even Michigan fans might hope for an Ohio State victory. Minnesota wouldn't mind a win by Wisconsin, either, as much as the Badgers are disliked across the state line.
“Kick-Ass” was one of those movies that seemed to have everybody split. Either you found the film morally reprehensible or you soaked up every minute of the film’s colorful violence and profanity. Personally, I was among the latter group.
Joss Whedon's bare-bones "Much Ado About Nothing" is the cinematic equivalent of Shakespeare in the parking lot — and proof, again, that it doesn't take much doing to bring Shakespeare to life.
In the galaxy of big-screen superheros — a rather glum lot — Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man is the snappy one.
The new link between meat consumption and heart disease, discovered by Dr. Stanley Hazen of the Cleveland Clinic, is just the latest evidence linking meat consumption to killer diseases that cripple, then kill, 1.3 million Americans annually.

Suspending disbelief is a part of watching most any action film, where bullets fly like birds and mayhem explodes as easily as a shaken soda can. But even in such a contrived movie world, it's asking far too much for us to accept that Noomi Rapace would be hounded as a "monster" for a little scaring around her left eye.
