Captain America: Civil War

It's been a couple of months since I last stepped foot in a cineplex, but I finally used one of the free e-vouchers I got from GSC (yay) to watch Captain America: Civil War. Now I just need to use up the other one before next Saturday.
  • There's even less of Paul Bettany as Vision in this movie than when he was just the voice of JARVIS in all the Iron Man and Avengers movies put together. But the guy also has more make up and prosthetics going on than everyone else, so I should give him a break :P 
  • So who texted Steve about Peggy's death...? To be fair, she was already in her 90s lah... Also, nice of them to put that picture of Hayley Atwell.. 
  • "B.A.R.F" - LOL
  • So the Black Panther character is like The Phantom...? You know, originally from obscure African nation, skin tight costume, handed down through the generations all... legacy hero.
  • OMG Cap - she's young enough to be YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER!! Sharon - HE'S OLD ENOUGH TO BE YOUR GREAT, GREAT GRANDFATHER!! 
  • Cap has snagged a second generation Carter.
  • So T'Chaka was also warrior king Black Panther? 
  • So basically, if you want to get Bucky out of his killing rampage, you have to throw him into a river....? 
  • Sad (but not really) that they explained away Pepper's non appearance as "they broke up".
  • Tom Holland only VAGUELY looks like Jamie Bell lah..
  • So how did Cap know that Bucky was the one that killed the Starks? Was it in a previous movie that I forgot? 
  • Slattery was only in the movie like, 5 minutes tops. 
  • Those title screens with the locations covering the whole screen just screams "Wes Anderson movie" to me :P 
  • I thought the Spiderman costume looked familiar...
  • Spiderman has a point about Cap's shield not obeying the laws of Physics, haha... oh, Spidey, geek to the nth degree.
  • What a way to annoy the olds: by calling Empire Strikes Back as "that very old movie" LOL
  • The footage of younger Robert Downey Jr is not bad - did they de-age him as well? 
  • THAT'S HIS END GAME? WTF!!! SO CUT STEAM WEI!!
  • So how did Cap know where the Raft prison was to break those people out...?
  • Check the Stan Lee cameo (as world's oldest FedEx guy asking for "Tony Stank" ROFL) and also the post credit stingers... 
This wasn't as funny as the previous ones. Am I the only that thinks it could've been shorter? The most giggles I got was watching three grown men outrunning cars in a tunnel...

Because the movie is almost 2.5 hours long, get an earlier screening if possible.
