Captain America: The First Avenger
Steve Rogers, a.k.a. CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, is from Brooklyn. And though he cannot feel the effects of alcohol due to his scientifically enhanced metabolism, his drink of choice is probably something like Brooklyn Brewery's Brooklyn Lager. Ol' Cap's biggest culture shock after being thawed out in modern times was probably learning that Budweiser is no longer produced by an American-owned corporation. These days, American beer is a much more facinating (and delicious) landscape, dominated by hundreds of wonderful microbreweries. We've listed some of our favorites below. As far as the film goes, I was coming off of GREEN LANTERN as my last superhero movie and wasn't expecting much more entertainment than the Captain America, F*CK YEAH! parody trailer. I was pleasantly surprised; the actors' performances were top notch, and the look and feel of the movie wasn't typical superhero bright costumes. Is it on the level of BATMAN BEGINS? Of course not; it's probably not even a repeat viewer. But I didn't want my money back, and these days that's saying something.
