6 Must See Movies Of April 2014
1 Of 6 Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Opens in theaters tomorrow (April 4th)
Due to the boy scout nature, there’s a lot of heart in these movies, and Evans play it all so honestly. He’s Marvel’s MVP, but it’s a good thing he’s surrounded by people who match his talent.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is an example of a popcorn blockbuster done right. Unlike, say, the third act of The Avengers, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Iron Man 3, this sequel doesn’t end with a bunch of characters shooting at faceless villains/aliens. The action is grounded and personal. Future Marvel films should take note of the Russo brothers work on this film.
2 Of 6 Underskin
Opens in theaters April 4th
This is only Jonathan Glazer‘s third film, but he makes some seasoned pros look like amateurs by comparison. Under the Skin is as every bit as accomplished as Sexy Beast and Birth, and yet, as his track record dictates, it couldn’t be more different from them. Glazer can do it all as a filmmaker, apparently. He certainly knows how leave an impression, and “an impression” is arguably an understatement in the case of Under the Skin. This is a haunting film filled with terror and beauty. It’s not for everyone, but you can’t easily dismiss Glazer’s intentions or Scarlett Johansson‘s magnetic performance as an alien on an unspecified mission. This is truly a movie that shows you its story
