OH MY GOD I SAW IT. AND IT WAS FANTASTIC. SO FUCKING FANTASTIC.
Seriously, it's up to par with The Avengers (though much more serious) and I feel just as floored by this movie as I did back then. Yes, it's THAT GOOD.
I'm just going to randomly throw out thoughts and impressions because I'm way too flashed for coherent thoughts.


  • THE FIGHTING SCENES. I could have watched this all day long: Natasha's Ninja style, Steve's kicks, Bucky's raw brutal force and knives. *swoons forever*

  • SAM WILSON IS THE MOST PRECIOUS HUMAN BEING OH GOD LET ME LOVE YOU. His introduction was wonderful and I love how he's this absolutely loyal counterpart to Steve. And HIS WINGS OMGOMGOMG *flails and swoons* (also, am I the only one who thought that he probably had a thing going on with his late wingman Riley?)

  • NAME DROPPING. Bruce Banner (*squee*) and Stephen Strange (possible future movie?!??!).

  • Generally so many hints and things from former movies woven into the movie. Agent Sitwell. The Senator from Iron Man 2 (Tony will be so happy about him getting arrested).

  • MARIA AND HOWARD STARK GOT KILLED BY HYDRA. I JUST SAT THERE GAPING. AND IMAGINE THAT IT WAS PROBABLY BUCKY WHO DID THAT. BUCKY PROBABLY KILLED TONY'S PARENTS. I want a bazillion fanfics dealing with this right now: Steve being the one telling Tony that his parents didn't just die in an accident, Tony dealing with the fact that his parents were killed, Bucky dealing with the fact that he killed one of his former friends (generally Bucky dealing with his past and buckets of angst), BUCKY AND TONY CONFRONTATION, all the friction between Bucky and Tony (either in a shippy way or with Steve having to deal with his boyfriend hating his best friend).

  • Sharon Carter ... did not impress me. She wasn't bad, either, just a bit meh. Admittedly, she didn't get much time for characterisation or development and I'm kind of biased (still don't like her in the comics), so I'll wait what they'll do with her in the future.

  • THE BASTARDS FORGOT ABOUT CLINT. AGAIN.

  • WANDA AND PIETRO IN THE AFTERCREDITS SCENE. SO MUCH FLAILING. So excited to see what they're going to do with the co-dependent incestuous twins.

  • ARNIM ZOLA'S MIND IS UPLOADED TO A COMPUTER. I love how they're re-inventing old-fashioned character concepts, like Zola and Falcon, to make them work better and look less cheesy in our present-day world. That's how you put comics onto screen. That's how you develop canon. That's how you stay up to date (*ogles at DC*).

  • NATASHA. Natasha who wasn't a love-interest and who was equal with Steve and who was plot-essential and who got her own background and who was badass and who got fantastic dialogue and characterisation. MARVEL I LOVE YOU SO MUCH RIGHT NOW OK.

  • NATASHA & STEVE FRIENDSHIP FOREVER.

  • NICK FURY WAS THE COOLEST. And they actually made him more human and gave him some background. I was really upset at first, because I was thinking: "oh come on, you can't go and kill Nick Fury", but luckily, they didn't (should have known better, really).

  • STAN LEE CAMEO.

  • MARIA HILL.

  • Steve visiting Peggy as an old woman, oh dear, my HEART. HE CALLED HER HIS BEST FRIEND. AND SHE STILL OWES HIM A DANCE.

  • RUMLOW. Whom I actually regret a little bit to be a bad guy, because a) he was hot and b) I liked him as part of Cap's team. Afterwards I googled his name because I thought his name sounded familiar and lo and behold: he is Crossbones! That's why they showed him surviving the finale.

  • Very important random information (for possible fanfic): Bucky was born in 1917 which makes him one year older than Steve (born 1918), and he 'died' in 1944.

  • THE FLASHBACK SCENE TO WHEN STEVE'S MOTHER DIED AND BUCKY TRIES TO COMFORT HIM *CLAWS AT HER FACE* I have no words, just a massive amount of feels.

  • BUCKY FUCKING BARNES AKA WINTER SOLDIER. First things first: HE HAD TOO LITTLE SCREENTIME. *cries* There could and should have been more of him, especially some more lines. Even so, Stan did the best with what he was given and he was fan-fucking-tastic. (Note to self: need to get my hands on the original scences so I can hear his real voice.) He managed the balance between blank, brainwashed killer and victim grasping for memories so well ("I know him" *weeps*) and the final fight between him and Steve had me flailing and whimpering. (I flailed and whimpered a lot. Mostly when Stan was on screen. I also squeezed a lot. J's hand had to suffer through the entire movie.) AND THEN HE DRAGGED STEVE OUT OF THE WATER AND HIS AFTER AFTERCREDIT SCENE IN THE MUSEUM OH GOD MY HEART WHY DID THEY STOP THERE I WANT ANOTHER MOVIE NOW.

  • WINTER SOLDIER FIGHTING. Did I mention his fighting scences? Because uughghgghhhh, oh dear lord, I could watch that all day. Just the way he fights is ruthless and brutal and raw and shows just how much of a killing machine he is, no matter the losses or costs.

  • MASSIVE BIONIC ARM PORN. UGH SO MUCH PORN. PORN. POOOOORN.

  • FUCK FUCK FUCK WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH AGENTS OF SHIELD NOW. Shield basically doesn't exist anymore, this will have such a huge impact on the show, fuck, wow, I can't wait to see what they'll do with it.
