Friends with Benefits and Captain America: The First Avenger

Friends with Benefits and Captain America came out in theaters this weekend,  so I went to see them and here is my review.

Friends With BenefitsFriends With Benefits

This movie was like No Strings Attached. Boy meets girl and they get together, but are only friends. They fall for each other, break up and get back together. This movie is filled with comedy, which is good because it is a romantic comedy. Personal I liked the glow in the dark marker scene.

This raucous rom-com chronicles the relationship of two busy singles, Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and Jamie (Mila Kunis), who agree to include sex in their friendship — minus the emotions and commitment. But things get complicated when Dylan (inevitably?) falls for his gal pal. Patricia Clarkson co-stars as Jaime’s hip mom and Woody Harrelson plays Dylan’s practical confidante, who advises him to man up when he pursues the newly dating Jamie.

Rating: 8 out of 10 stars.


Captain America: The First AvengerCaptain America: The First Avenger

The final Marvel movie before The Avengers next year was released this weekend. Like most of the previous Marvel movie this movie was loaded with action. I was a little nervous about Chris Evans playing Captain America, but as the movie progressed his performance grow on me. Stan Lee is in one scene and has one line. P. S. – There is additional footage after the credits about Captain America and a trailer for the Avengers,  so if you are a true Marvel fan you will want to see the post-credits footage.

Marvel launches another super franchise with this action-packed origin story, which follows Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) as he volunteers for a secret experiment during World War II. Transformed into a superhero named CaptainAmerica, Steve goes after the Axis. With his perfect physique and heightened reflexes — and his sidekick, Bucky (Sebastian Stan) — Steve battles the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving), a super soldier created by Italian fascists.

Rating: 10 out of 10 stars.
