Captain America and his mighty shield……… Review for Captain America:The Winter Soldier

Captain Ameria: The Winter Soldier

 

By Michael Alvarez
I highly recommend this film….

There is no way around this, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a great film. YES I LOVED IT. Considering we do not always have the opportunity to watch a Superhero film with a perfect blend of cinematography, writing and a superb cast. If that is not enough, another point to consider is the fact that CA:TWS truly bridges all fims in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe Phase 2 along with ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”. So if you are a true Marvel fan like I am, you will be happy to know that it pay’s off to watch the show.
I must remind you that making an entertating film based on a comic book is no easy feat, with that said…….
The filmakers effectively use the source material as a story board and with the help of a great cast bring The Comic Book to life. Anthony and Joseph Russo worked off an exellent script written by Christopher Markus and Stephen Mcfeely based Ed Brubaker’s instant classic series “Captain America:The Winter Soldier” published by Marvel Comics. Its a great story filled with plot twists, with an extensive web of deceit, hardcore action, laughs and also with so many surprises even the fan boys won’t know what hit them. I see it as an Espioange film with an occasional Superhero or two.
Anthony & Joseph Russo are at the top of their game making their first Action film. Managing to keep us glued to our seats throughout entire film. It also helps that the Russo brother’s are coming off “The Community” which ad libs most of its dialogue during the shooting its episodes. This is a great thing because it lets the actors be free and creative making for a better performance. Especially with a cast like Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford.
Cinematography in the film is something to boast about considering camera work is often over shadowed by glitzy special effects. It is refreshing to know the film makers did not solely depend on special effects to tell the story. In the opening of the film there is a fantastic fight scequence between Captain America, his shield and a wanted terrorist. Not only was the fight sequence nicely choreographed with a combination of kicks and the Shield but so was the camera work shooting the sequnce was also very well choreographed. Its not easy getting the right angle during a perfect kick and many of you are not aware that the cameras on a film set run on high wires and a pull track like that of a Train tracks and controling those devices is an art by it self. Again because of the experience of directing “The Community” and shooting with Hand Held Cameras add a realistic touch to the action sequences. Plus its great to see a montage of scenes backed by a little music, just saying….
The film takes place two years after New York City was invaded by the Chitauri in The Avengers…. Captain America is now living in Washington DC and a full time operative with Nick Fury’s S.H.I.E.L.D taking down bad guys. Steve Rogers aka Captain America is still adjusting to life in the 21st Century. Steve is doing what he can to adjust to his new life from jogging, making new friends and building a music list with the likes of Marvin Gaye’s “Trouble Man” to the theme of “Rocky II” by Bill Conti. Steve is also avoiding blind date suggestions from his new partner Natsha Romanoff aka The Black Widow. I guess that is what makes Captain America such a great character, he makes saving the world look so easy but has such a though time trying to belong to it. Other highlights of the film are the mysterious Nick Fury as we saa what a BAD-ASS he truly is. We also get an in depth look and history of the infamous organization of S.H.I.E.L.D and how Howard and Tony Stark are connect to the organization.
As I mentioned earlier for those loyal fans of ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”, you are in for a treat. Not only do we learn why Nick Fury has been avoiding Agents Colson phone calls and for “being off the grid” but we also get a glimpse at a direction the show might take, I can only hope….. Lets not forget about Captain America and the course his life must take when confronting tradegies from his past…. Hold on I have a better idea I think you will better enjoy the film if you just go watch climatic film and see what I am all exited about.
Also don’t forget to stay and watch both the Mid and Post credit scenes teasing Avengers 2…….

From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.

FUN FACTS 

 

  • “Frankenweenie” follows in the footsteps of Tim Burton’s other stop-motion animated films “Corpse Bride” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas”—both of which were nominated for Academy Awards®.

 

  • Stop-motion animation is one of the oldest animation styles. There are 24 frames per second in the stop motion for “Frankenweenie.” This means that the animator must stop and position the puppet 24 times to get one second of filmed action. On average, one animator can only produce 5 seconds of animation per week.  Multiple puppets of the same character allowed animators to work on more than one scene at once. There were as many as 18 animators working independently of each other at one time.

 

  • “Frankenweenie” is the first animated film that Tim Burton has directed for Disney.

 

  • All of the characters in “Frankenweenie” are based on Tim Burton’s drawings. He did some of the drawings in 1984 when the original live-action short of “Frankenweenie” was done and the others he drew especially for this new, feature-length animated version.

 

  • The talented voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (“Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands”), Catherine O’Hara (“Beetlejuice,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas”), Martin Short (“Mars Attacks!”) and Martin Landau (“Ed Wood,” Sleepy Hollow”).

 

  • Production designer Rick Heinrichs enjoys a long-standing professional relationship with director/producer Tim Burton, having worked in various capacities on many of Burton’s films, including “Sleepy Hollow,” for which he won an Academy Award®; short films “Vincent” and the live-action “Frankenweenie”; feature films “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure,” “Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands,” “Batman Returns,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Planet of the Apes.” Most recently, Heinrichs designed the Burton-directed, live-action feature “Dark Shadows.”

 

  • Classic horror films from the 1930s, like “Frankenstein” and “Dracula,” inspired several of the character names—Victor, Elsa Van Helsing, Edgar “E” Gore and Mr. Burgemeister.

 

  • Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film; there were 17 Victors and 12 Sparkys. Since each animator worked independently on different scenes, multiples were needed. They also needed backup in case a puppet required repair.

 

  • The Puppet Hospital on the “Frankenweenie” set was always full. These highly trained model makers spent months repairing limbs, fixing hair and skin issues and mending costumes that were ripped or dirty. This team even found time to create all of the generic background puppets as well as a few of the main characters from scratch.

 

  • The first puppet designed for the show was Sparky and the scale that they established with him set the standard for the whole rest of the film. Tim Burton had a very specific vision for Sparky’s character and really wanted him to act and move like a real dog. The armature needed to be very intricate and 4 inches is literally the smallest they could make him and still have him display all the behavior and personality that was required. Once they had his size fixed, the puppet makers were able to scale the rest of the characters and sets properly.

 

  • Incredibly talented artists are able to take Tim Burton’s original drawings and sculpt them into three-dimensional sculptures, which are then cast in a combination of silicone and latex. Their costumes are all sewn with miniature stitches to keep in scale.  Wigs are made for them from real human hair and then applied strand by strand so that the puppets have a more realistic hairline.  Inside each puppet there is a metal armature, which acts like a skeleton and gives the animator the ability to move the puppets and act out the scenes with incredible subtlety and finesse.

 

  • The film takes place in the fictitious town of New Holland, a suburban development circa the 1970s, much like Burbank, California, where director Tim Burton grew up.  A windmill sits on a hill overlooking the town and adds just the right touch for New Holland’s annual Dutch Days celebration.

 

  • The sets for the film were built on tabletops. The vast majority of the miniature props for the sets were made by hand and hand-painted and detailed.

 

  • The music for “Frankenweenie” was composed by Danny Elfman, whose working relationship with Tim Burton goes back to 1985 when Elfman composed the score for “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.” Elfman has composed the scores for all of Burton’s films thus far, with the exception of two: “Ed Wood” and “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.”

When the two are unexpectedly separated in the Great Barrier Reef, Nemo is carried far from his ocean home and deposited in a fish tank in a dentist’s office. Buoyed by the companionship of Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), a friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish, Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic effort to rescue his son––who hatches a few daring plans of his own to return safely home.
