Your best superhero movie sequels?
Spoiler free review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Yesterday i watched these back to back with my wife (Cap for the 3rd time and Spidey for the 2nd time). These are two very different movies which have me at the same level of joy and excitement!

Captain America is now a character I'm excited about watching - they managed to make an interesting and intriguing movie about a goody 2-shoes boy scout! And i like it! Doesn't happen to me normally (I find it really hard to enjoy Superman for example). This political thriller of a movie has a twist that affects the entire Marvel universe - you'd have to think back to 3 different Marvel Studios movies and realise the impact this movie had on them.

Besides that, Cap is now a much better fighter visually. The action scenes are more hard hitting, and it now looks like Captain America is actually a super soldier that has a big enough edge on everyone else. The introductions of Falcon and Winter Soldier were brilliant. The writers forged Cap's new friendship with Sam Wilson aka Falcon very well. Also, the Winter Soldier's presence gave familiar chills if you've seen the T1000 on the hunt in Terminator 2. When he's around, you genuinely fear for the other characters on screen.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is an appropriately named movie. I've never seen a more accurate portrayal of Spider-Man on screen than this one! From comics and cartoons I've always known him to be a wise-cracker. He can't shut up! It's how he deals with difficulties and tragedies in his life. The villains he fights get enraged at his prattling. Andrew Garfield did this week in the first movie, but they really upped the ante in this sequel and it was funny! It could pass for a Marvel Studios movie (well done Sony!)

The action scenes are second to none. You really have to watch this in 3D, that way you get to experience what it's like to web sling through the city! It was choreographed so well. Besides that, his battles rally made great use of slow motion to show just how useful his Spider-sense is, and how fast and agile he is to react to those senses. The acting is first class and I won't give any spoilers about how well events unfolded.

I will mention Jamie's great performance as Max Dillon aka Electro. He's a disturbed self-centred human being. He has behaviours which my wife (a psychotherapist) has seen and knows about. The way they show his eventual transformation was well thought out, and it wasn't too serious either.

Which is better out of these two movies? Couldn't say! Just enjoy them both. Let's see what X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy have for us later this year!

I have watched both films and they are both great in different ways. The Amazing Spider man 2 encompasses all things a comic book movie should be, Captain America 2 is a brilliant spy type film and really sets the story for future Marvel films.

Ya, they just need to download an app for that, lots there. Funny they never really released a fix for the mail issue, they seem to know all about it, and it doesn't seem to happen to everyone.

I'm willing to say the X-Men trailer looks pretty cool. I'm a little happier with Quicksilver's portrayal here.

Story
Tagline
Creator of the Cyman System Digital Butler & Technophile
Introduction
Some know me as the technopreneur and creator of the Cyman System - a digital butler, driven by my wish to have Iron Man's JARVIS virtual assistant (currently on Android known as Cyman Mark 2 and on desktops through Chrome - Cyman Mark 3). Do join my Cyman community on https://plus.google.com/communities/101074975065500343284!  

Others know me as a Superhero fan - with particular affiliation to Iron Man and Spider-man.  My friends often refer to me as "that tech guy who knows about computers and mobile phones".

I'm generally just fascinated by the way we use technology tomorrow.  I am a technophile.  As a software developer, I like to help the process forward every now and then - hence my creation of Cyman.

If you're stuck on what to circle me under, try - future tech, comic books or music (theoretical and orchestral)! Oh, and go ahead and download Cyman on Google Play!
