5 Brilliant Little Moments In Captain America: The Winter Soldier That Deserve Some Love
One of the reasons Captain America: The Winter Soldier proved to be a truly enjoyable and entertaining cinematic experience is due to the film's efforts to allow us to connect with the characters, appreciate the bonds forming between them and most importantly, take time to allow us to appreciate the "smaller" moments amidst the thrilling stunts and --spoiler alert -- HYDRA chaos. While we're having plenty of fun dissecting the plot, discussing the film, analyzing the outcome and where Winter Soldier leaves these characters, we thought we'd take a moment to celebrate some of the human moments in the film.
This should barely need to be said, but spoilers ahead if you haven't seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier:
Eric's 5 star review lays out plenty of reasons to love this movie. Beyond the thrills and action, with which Captain America: The Winter Soldier is brimming, here are five other scenes or moments in the film that deserve some more love.
Apple Store AdmirationRather than breaking into someone's home or seeking out a more private location to take a peek at the flash drive they've acquired, Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) head off to a mall to "borrow" one of the computers at the Apple store. Disguised as your average young, hip guy, Cap ends up having to distract the Apple salesman while Black Widow does her thing. Apple guy (D.C. Pierson) notes he has the exact same glasses Steve is wearing, which prompts Black Widow to dryly note that they're practically twins. "I wish," Mac guy says with a laugh. And then adds...
Not only are we laughing at the tech guy's evident awe of Cap's impressive physique -- Mac people are known to appreciate good design, after all -- the scene works beautifully to ease some of the tension without drastically cutting the suspense. Laugh and breathe, and then move on to Cap and Widow's efforts to escape the mall unseen, which they do. And they kiss on an escalator in the process.
