Fast Five

Of this series of movies, I'd only seen The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and I didn't particularly care for it, but after seeing a couple of reviews of this one and hearing about it from a coworker, I thought I'd give it a chance. It sounded like they were taking themselves less seriously and going completely over-the-top with it. While it was over-the-top, they still seemed to be taking themselves too seriously for my taste. None of the drama had any impact for me, and the action wasn't mesmerizing enough to distract from the lackluster story. At least Vin Diesel and the Rock almost kissed.

I also watched my copy of Captain America: The First Avenger. I still liked it, though like before, I thought the villain was really boring, dragging the movie down a bit. I still like how they presented the Captain America character, and Hayley Atwell has such a good face in it, so it was worthwhile to watch again.
