  1. The subheading for this edition of Cinema Misfits should be “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Bob Redford”. Never thought until your podcast of comparing All is Lost to Gravity, but that comparison only highlights how lazy All Is Lost felt. Maybe it was the director’s fault, but Redford’s “subtle” performance was such a bore. If you’re going to trap us on a boat with an actor for 2 hours at least make it an entertaining actor. They should remake the movie with Nic Cage or Gary Busey.
    I agree wholeheartedly that Cap had great action scenes and I think Chris Evans really captures Cap’s stoicism and nobility, but damn these Marvel movies take themselves too seriously. Why not let Falcon have the power to talk to birds like he does in the comics? Why not have Robert Redford be revealed to be the Red Skull as the character he was based on in the great Winter Soldier storyline actually was? I guess the box office proves the audiences like the Marvel movies the way they are, but I prefer them to be more comic booky. One positive element is the tv show Agents of SHIELD has greatly since the Captain America tie-in. Here’s a link to my review…

    • Jenny Agutter (Councilwoman Hawley) pulling off her digital mask to reveal she’s the Black Widow was just kind of a cheat and a ho-hum surprise, but Robert Redford pulling off a mask to reveal he’s the Red Skull, that would have made the movie for me.
